Debbie Happy Cohen is a master coach with a graduate degree in counseling. She’s the founder of Joy-Based Living, an online global conversation where people develop the skills to create (internal and external) environments so that JOY can thrive in their lives.

Many people who are committed to having joy in their lives are people who have known its exact opposite. Therefore, we explore many aspects of joy, including its shadows. Awareness, acceptance and action are keys to opening the doors to greater joy; and courage is strengthened when people experience connection.

The Joy-Based Living E-book offers 12 foundational practices to help you get in touch with your feelings, make a deeper commitment to yourself, and step up into becoming who you really are. It’s a great supplement any holistic practice, including therapy and coaching.

  1. Love this vid-post, Debbie!
    And speaking of “don’t underestimate the power” of a children’s book’s ability to help us heal from emotional trauma… Since “laughter is the best medicine,” I strongly suggest your viewers check out (if they haven’t already) YOUR children’s book (which is lovingly illustrated): “I Don’t Think So!” 🙂

  2. I believe Hiro (one of the “stars” of the book, for those who don’t know) would be saying, “I THINK SO!” 😉
