Her insights, guidance and feedback opened a pathway for me to release what remained within, regarding a long term and challenging personal situation. Being so grounded and focused in her work, Bela brought to light the deeper issue at hand.

She helped me to focus on gratitude, self-love, and joy, all things that I had pushed aside as I raised my children and got caught up in the stress of daily life.

“I met with Bela Friedman for nine weeks for career coaching. Our sessions not only inspired and lifted me, but gave me the tools needed to take with me beyond our contracted amount of time. Even though there were difficult times when I needed to face the truth about bad habits, she helped smooth the path in order for me to break through. Not only is she easy to talk to but has such a soothing voice. She makes it easy to meditate or respond to visualization periods during our sessions.

Bela is compassionate, kind, a wonderful listener and also very knowledgeable in her field. She gives feedback and knowledge in a positive way. I highly recommend Bela as a coach.”

I can truly say that meeting you has been a blessing and an answer to my prayers! I sincerely enjoyed being part of the women’s circle and meeting the wonderful women who were there! The discussion we had around leading an inspired life was filled with so many thoughtful examples. It enabled me to be aware of the many ways one CAN lead an inspired life…choosing to find ways.  I thoroughly enjoyed the meditation journey you led us on into the future! It was beautiful! I loved the gentle pace of it, which allowed me to really be able to visualize the pieces of the experience more clearly. The colors I saw were so vivid, too!  Thank you so much, and I can’t wait until your next circleI’m also very excited about having you as my life coach!” 


“I want to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions, and I believe everyone should have someone like you in their lives. You really made me realize how important it is to practice what you are encouraging me to do daily. I know that those results will not come overnight and without work. You really helped me boost my confidence and am so thankful to you.”

“When I was stuck in a dead-end career and didn’t know how to move forward, Bela was my gifted and indispensable navigator. Her ability to untangle what really mattered to me in my career path has been invaluable. She also provided a critically needed framework to track and measure my goals – concrete steps that gave substance and structure on my journey. 

Most importantly, Bela challenged my self-defeating behaviors, helping me to change the way I viewed myself, and in turn empowering me to overcome obstacles and achieve results. Her insights, creativity and passion for partnering with me to help me live a life of joy, purpose and fulfillment are abundantly evident today. I would not be where I am today without her wise and patient guidance.”

“I had the privilege of being coached by Bela Friedman for several months. Her experience and professionalism helped me understand the barriers that were holding me back in starting my business. The more sessions we had together the easier it was for me to understand what I needed to do to remove those barriers. I am so grateful for the time I spent with Bela. She is authentic, kind and insightful. I look forward to working with her again in the future.”

– Jenn G.

“Before meeting with Bela I suffered with PTSD and mild depression. Life had thrown me a curveball and I was frustrated trying to figure out how to handle it. I had tried a few different treatments, but it was Bela’s hypnotherapy that pushed me over the hump. Now I am relaxed, stress free and am feeling like myself again. I am very grateful to Bela for her compassion and empathy. I owe my recovery to her!”

– Donna P.

“I was a life coach client of Bela’s for several months when I was deciding to launch a business and leave a stable career. Bela’s “whole person” approach helped me focus on aspects of my life beyond balance sheets and vision statements. Walking me through my inner landscape to reflect on deep seated beliefs that could undermine my success removed roadblocks before they even appeared on the journey. Bela encouraged me to choose new beliefs to move forward with in all aspects of my life. I appreciated Bela’s checking in at the start of each session and willingness to let the time proceed differently than planned if the homework for the week stirred up questions or reflections that needed processing. She modeled openness to the journey, which is core to any business venture or life practice. And her gentle, relaxed presence is an added bonus.

At the end of our initial sessions, I signed up for a second set as I felt the time was so valuable. After those sessions ended I felt I had a focus on not only my business vision and goals, but clarity on my life mission. When I am ready for a “tune-up,” I will be calling Bela. I highly recommend her as a life coach.”

“Compassion, professionalism and guidance all describe Bela Friedman. She’s a sought-after life coach and hypnotherapist who can help clients fulfill their dreams. I’ve attended her workshops in which she guides her clients through techniques to break through difficult barriers so they can live their ‘whole’ lives, ultimately broadening and breaking stagnant thought patterns. I found the ‘vision boards’ most appealing as an avenue to help me fulfill goals that had been idle for too long. If you’re feeling stressed, Bela has a way of lifting the heavy weight of worry from your shoulders. I can’t say enough about her passion to help others and her incredible zest for life!”

“I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how much I enjoyed your workshop series. It seemed that each one built on the next, each assisting more and more to clarify where I was in life, where I wanted to be, and how to get there. I think that’s why your series was so successful. Not only are you a great team leader, but the environment was encouraging and personal. And being surrounded by like-minded women who were also so open and friendly was a real plus. Sometimes personal journeys are difficult to speak about, but under your guidance, I always felt safe and supported. It was a wonderful experience, and I really look forward to attending more of your workshops in the future.”
