After being together for over a decade, Bynum and I had fallen into some unhealthy patterns for ourselves and marriage.  Misunderstandings, triggering, arguing and cold wars.  We knew that we were good people, but we weren't being the best versions of ourselves.

 

We were both working with Glenn individually and things had dramatically improved but we saw a benefit in having someone point out where we may be getting stuck.  We have learned how to use communication tools properly.  We have learned the difference between content and context when analyzing past events.

These days, we laugh more and argue less.  Our home life is more enjoyable for the whole family.  We aren't misunderstanding each other or triggering each other as often and we have a better understanding of what to do should that happen.  We are forever grateful to Glenn for helping us to improve the quality of our individual lives as well as our lives as a couple.

After trying therapists and psychologists over the years, I decided I wanted to try a different approach. I wanted something that wasn't talk therapy, wasn't prescription medicine suggestions, but something that was tangible, something a control freak like me could still feel like she is in control of and doing something about it. 

 

I wanted something that would give me the tools to help resolve all of those old patterns that were no longer serving me and better ways to communicate with my husband and child.  A system that could help me to move forward more easily in the direction I want to go.  I wanted something that makes everything seem more hopeful, possible, attainable, and it does not feel like drudging through the marsh. 

 

From my time working with Glenn, I can think more clearly, feel more sure-footed about my decisions, worry less, and move about my life knowing that my thoughts, words, and actions will be more in sync; therefore making me feel more at home in my own body.  I am no longer anxious and worried about how I may handle a possible situation or problem. I see them as challenges for growth. I meet these challenges as worthy opponents as opposed to an oversized Goliath. 

 

The quality of my days feel richer, warmer, and more green than red. (This will make sense if you follow any of his work).

Working with Glenn Cohen has been a real eye-opening experience.  For years I have suffered from anxiety and my wife recommended that I go see Glenn whom she had recently started coaching with. 

  

I didn’t know what to expect but when he started explaining the science behind his method I was immediately interested.  Glenn’s method is not feel-good cheerleading, it is a way to retrain your brain through neurological pathways in the mind and body.  Working with Glenn I have learned how to manage my stress and anxiety levels in a healthy way.  I have also discovered several traumatic events in my life which have been trapped in my unconscious mind and how to change their meaning so they can serve me in a positive light rather than a negative experience. 

  

Another area I wanted help with was improving my communication skills with others.  Through my work with Glenn, I have learned how to listen better, hold space, and express myself more clearly.  At the end of the day I feel empowered and more at ease with myself as a result of Glenn’s coaching methods.  If you are interested in a straightforward way of improving your general well-being, I highly recommend utilizing Glenn Cohen’s coaching methods.

I feel that trust is the most important part of any relationship. It gives you the power to communicate with any person, at any time, and connect with them precisely how you wish to connect with them. Glenn has helped me Trust my internal intelligence and reach far into my heart and mind to heal past traumas and allow the best version of myself to be present and available for my family, friends, and patients. It’s an amazing feeling to know yourself fully, and know that you are in complete control of yourself and your internal environment. Becoming self aware of how you feel and how your interactions with other people affect them throughout the day, has allowed me to become the best version of myself. My Mindful Empowered Leader!!!

 

Thank You Glenn, for coaching me through the ups and downs, and the pitfalls and road blocks, and most importantly telling me what I needed to hear, exactly when I needed to hear it. This training and coaching has helped me become a better husband, father, and doctor. Thank you for teaching me your system to unlock the infinite possibilities with within, I look forward everyday to introducing my Mindful Empowered Leader to the world!

"I would recommend Glenn Cohen to everyone I love and care about.  The Re-claiming process has been life changing and unlike anything I have done before.  Since starting with Glenn, he has opened my eyes to negative language I was using and how changing the way I look at things will change how I feel about them.  Truly releasing and healing my past in order to become the best me ever.   I’m so thankful to have meet Glenn and had the opportunity to work with him one on one as he perfected his process into what it is now.  He is truly gifted in his ability to lead you into your most empowered self!"

"Glenn is a very amazing person.  He will give you a reality check in a heartbeat, sometimes individuals in situations aren't ready for the truth.  Glenn teaches you how to be an empowered stable individual, and sometimes the chips fall as they may when it comes to that.  It is up to you the individual to take on the responsibility for your own mental and spiritual health,  

 

Glenn is probably the best person I've ever met to help guide you with that, but it's on you.  If you're willing to accept his information and (apply it) you will be a changed individual.  If you don't then you won't.  A lot of people expect a marriage counselor to guide you through all your issues and take you by the hand, Glenn does not at least not the way you think, he has each individual look at themselves take the truth for what it is, if you become a understanding individual intern you will become a better couple.  His principles are spot-on and yes it sucks to be called out trust me, but it was what I needed when I needed it. 

 

Understand something, if one of you in your marriage chooses to become a changed person through his teachings and the other one doesn't, well it is what it is.  For me as a person Glenn help give me the information and the tools to be a better person and a better Communicator completely. 

 

Glenn if you read this, I can't say it enough, I appreciate you brother. Thank you for everything that you've done."

"In the realm of coaching and healers there are some human beings who clearly have a gift. The gift that Glenn Cohen has is one like I’ve never encountered in my long history with coaches, therapists, and healers.  

 

As a mental health clinician, myself I know how rare it is to find someone who truly knows how to get into the human psyche, body, and soul. The experience working with Glenn is like no other you’ll ever have. Glenn is a professional space holder while simultaneously being a magical, compassionate bullshit cutter. He sees your soul and work from all possible angles and is a master at helping you uncover your blind spots. He intentionally and beautifully guides you as you return to your true self and spirit.  

 

Glenn knows an inordinate amount about the physiology and biology of the ways our body holds and responds to trauma. He is a self-studied expert - the best possible kind. His process not only makes sense to the lay person, it transports you to a sense of grounded presence in real time. He helps you get in full touch with your boundless power, compassion, and sense of true self.  

 

The work I have done with Glenn has forever changed the course of my path in this lifetime. The way he saw me for my truest most empowered self has touched my life a way words don’t match. If you’re really ready to dive into your person work and truly reclaim your spirit, Glenn is the only coach I recommend."

 

Thank you,

"When you hear the term counseling you get a connotation that something is wrong with you.  That is the furthest thing from the truth.  Our lives are filled with pain and stress and we all deal with those things in different ways.  However, sometimes things just get beyond our control and we need help.  I was hurting from some painful life events over the past few years as well as dealing with demons from my early childhood.  I consider myself an intelligent person but felt helpless and stupid when trying to make sense of the pain and emotions I was experiencing.  I realized that I cannot go on this journey alone and needed help and Glenn was there. 

 

Nobody starts a new task that they have never done before without training and Glenn was the perfect coach for me!  He guided me through a very challenging process where I worked my ass off to sort through the emotions and pain in my life.  I bet you are asking, "why did you do all of the work, isn't Glenn the counselor?"  Glenn has a very thorough and detailed process that I trusted with all my heart.  I am very grateful for the hard work I put in and for his guidance.  Without Glenn I would have never made it through this journey successfully.  Glenn gave me the lifetime tools to continue the work we did together to make sure I succeed.  I have seen a huge increase in my confidence and self-esteem as a result of the hard work I put in under Glenn's guidance.  I would highly recommend him to anyone (individuals or couples).  Thank you, Glenn!"

"I'm not sure where to begin.  I've never written a testimonial before, but I thought that it was important enough to do so.  I wish that I could say that I had met Glenn much sooner.  I feel that I've missed out on a lot of happiness and ruined some relationships along the way, and that's what brought me here. 

 

Someone very close and important to me who knew every intimate detail of how I was ashamed of things that unconsciously made me sad and angry, told me that I didn't have to live like this.  She loved me and she encouraged me to go and see someone about things that had happened in my childhood.  

 

She even helped me by researching and sifting through all of these different counselors and giving me her opinions on what I needed to look for.  Sadly, I waited too long and lost her, and I then became very motivated to helping myself become a different version of me because I didn't like that person and she didn't either, so I was incredibly determined to change. 

 

Glenn did that for me and if you listen to him and what he asks of you then it's so easy that you almost don't even know it's happening until your there and those feelings of sadness and that depression aren't there anymore.  I was there every Monday morning, and it was my favorite time of the week and if it was needed then I would have gladly kept giving him my money and going to see him because I wasn't that same angry and sad person anymore.  

 

I feel much happier and optimistic, and I could tell that people liked being around me more than before.  I'm very grateful for what Glenn has done for me and I appreciate the other person and what she had sacrificed and helping me get what I much needed."

 

Very Grateful

"I will admit that at first, I was unsure of Glenn’s techniques and structure, as his methods are not like any that I have tried before.  Then again, that is why I made the decision to work with him.  I took a leap of faith and went in a different direction.  I didn’t just want to feel better about who I was now; I also wanted to improve who I could be in the future.  

 

I am very happy with the time I spent during my six months working with Glenn. It wasn’t an easy six months, but, if it were easy, I probably would not have gotten much out of it.  It has changed the way I view myself, the way I handle any thing life has to send my way.  I am very grateful to have met Glenn and to have spent that time with him as a teacher and guide."

"I met Glenn during the lowest point of my life. I was unraveling from the inside out, 5 months into separating myself from an emotionally abusive partner and I couldn’t breathe let alone see where I was headed.  

 

An angel friend told me about her experience with Glenn, and I knew I needed his help. Glenn allowed me to see the deep need for me to snap out of my spiral and take control of my life. He shined a light into some dark spaces in my soul so that I could see the potential for healing there.  

 

I have done some of the hardest work of my life with Glenn by my side, guiding me and reminding me of my role, my choices, and my power... always encouraging me to claim my life, mistakes and all, as my own so that the life I’m now creating is as the fullest, most authentic version of myself. I have more work to do, still. Truly, I don’t know when this part of my journey will be over, but I see the light outside of the cave and I know If I do this hardest of work while in the dark, I will get to the light. And Glenn led me there."

"I saw another Megan wrote you a testimonial, so I had to write mine, too! Thank you, a million times, over, my friend! 

 

If you would have told me that, a year from meeting Glenn Cohen, I would have quit my job, become sober, reconnected with an estranged parent, and started my own business doing what I’ve always wanted to do, I would have laughed in your face! And I probably would have run in the other direction.  

 

To be clear, none of these decisions were suggested by Glenn. He’s not in the business of telling you what to do. His coaching style is direct, and he called my BS out at every turn -- not in a judgmental way, but in a way that helped me break through patterns that may have served me at one time but had been holding me back for years. 

 

In our journey, he used techniques that I was initially skeptical of -- techniques that, once I bought in and surrendered to the process, allowed me to reclaim myself and my path. In working with Glenn, it became apparent that I wasn’t creating or enforcing boundaries with others, that I needed to play the role of the martyr in my career, friendships and relationships to feel validated, and that I would create scenarios to test the durability of relationships, which often resulted in self-sabotage. When opportunities came for self-examination, I would withdraw and numb out.  

 

Thanks to Glenn's assistance, I was able to confront the ghosts of my past and forgive my parents and previous partners for harm done -- I realized that they, too, are imperfect people, and in forgiving them, I was able to reclaim a part of myself that felt stuck in the past. Most importantly, I was able to show grace to myself, and to move on from mistakes I had made in the past that had hurt others, that had hurt me.

 

The more I worked with Glenn, the more I came to realize that my new goals and values were not aligned with certain environments I was existing in. Reaching that point of no return was one of the most powerful and emotional periods of my life. Our work helped me develop the courage to leave those environments, or to redefine them in healthy ways. To step purposefully and courageously into an uncertain future.  

 

I am now over seven months sober, in the beginning phases of starting my freelance writing career, and closer to my partner for having gone through tough, but necessary conversations and processes together. Glenn has been one of my greatest teachers, and I cannot express enough gratitude for his patience, direction and belief in me over the past year and several months. Meet with Glenn. Open yourself up to the process. Do the hard work required to reclaim yourself. There’s no one better to help you get there."

"Glenn is a genius. If you are willing to put in the work, he can help you make SO much progress towards becoming the mentally healthy and happy person you want to be. I put his teachings into practice every single day and I am a better person for it. I cannot recommend Glenn enough. The world would be a much better place if everyone spent some time with Glenn."

"I stepped into Glenn’s little office in the winter of 2017.  This stage of my life was the darkest place I had been in.  Having the childhood, I had, coupled with one failed marriage and a slew of traumatic events, all led up to the moment I walked in there.  On the surface, it was a last-ditch effort to save my current marriage…a marriage I had already written off because my past had me living what I thought I deserved in my life.  I had a history of knowingly messing things up to make sure I controlled the end of the relationship because, in the end, everyone leaves.  Now, in the depths of my mind, I knew I needed real help because I wasn’t just on the verge of losing my wife.  I was toying with the idea of suicide. 

 

You see, I had been struggling for years.  Decades really.  The early years of my life sucked but I don’t really remember all of the things that happened.  The things I do remember have stuck with me forever and established my self-worth.  The chaos in my mind was never ending.  When I stepped into Glenn’s office, I hadn’t just given up on my marriage; I had given up on my life.  I remember the night I told my wife that I didn’t think our relationship was going to work out. I also remember going to the guest room for the night and looking into the clauses of my life insurance to see if suicide would prevent her from receiving the payment.  That’s when I knew that I had to change something, but I didn’t know what.  I went on a late-night drive to try to clear my head.  I felt numb.  I had felt numb for years.  

 

As a police officer in metro Atlanta and a Soldier in the Army, I had dealt with many things that put me in dangerous situations.  It got to a point that I became more careless about the situations I was in because, what was the worst that could happen?  I get hurt?  At least I’d feel something again.  I lose my life?  I wasn’t enjoying it anyways.  January, 2016, that almost became a reality for me.  Even that situation didn’t faze me at the time.  My supervisor at the police department had to make me see the circumstances of that night for me to even realize what happened and how close I had come to being killed. 

 

I say all of this to make sure it’s clear, I was done with life.  I didn’t go into Glenn’s office with motivation to get help.  It was a “check the box” kind of thing for me.  The only reason I went to see Glenn was to try to make my wife happy because she refused to give up on our marriage. 

 

Immediately after meeting Glenn, I remember him sitting in his chair and just talking to me like a normal person.  He didn’t treat me like I was damaged or broken.  Every counselor I had been to treated me like I was broken.  They always said they could fix me.  Saying you can fix me just tells me I’m broken and you can see it.  That doesn’t help.  That only makes it worse.  I already couldn’t stand who I was and now someone I don’t know wants to change me.  Glenn connected with me almost immediately and, without me stating any of my feelings, told me that he wanted to help me discover who I was.  That really hit my soul.  I needed to find out who I was, not change into who someone thought I should be.
