Are you meant to be a life coach?

Meet Rhonda

Hi. My name is Rhonda Britten. A Master Coach since 1995. Yep. I was one of the original coaches that started the industry called “coaching.” I love that I was on the forefront of changing the way people change. And I’ve done plenty of changing myself. 

That’s the key, isn’t it? We gotta walk our talk by doing our own work to become the best coach we can be. And this is what I know: My lowest lows have given me my greatest transformations. 

 Marianne Williamson, multiple New York Times bestselling author, says…

Rhonda Britten has risen from the ashes of genuine catastrophe. She has seen the deepest darkness, and found her way beyond it. Hers was not an easy path, by any means. What she has accomplished within herself, and now helps others to accomplish as well, is nothing short of miraculous.”

Rhonda Britten – Emmy Award-winner, Repeat Oprah guest, Huffington Post Contributor and Master Coach – has devoted her life to teach people how to master fear. She brings the neuroscience of fear down to earth giving anyone a path out of “not being good enough” using the “Wheels” technology she developed that saved her own life. What she teaches is what she’s lived.

After witnessing the horrific murder-suicide of her parents at the tender age of 14, Rhonda went into a twenty-year spiral of self-doubt, blame and addiction. She tried everything to help herself (therapy, self-help books, improvement workshops, PTSD, energy work, you name it.) but still had nightmares every night and couldn’t get past the fear that there was something wrong with her. After she woke up very much alive after her third suicide attempt, she knew she had to find another way.

Rhonda’s personal story is one of triumph over a tragedy that few people experience. After searching desperately for relief in therapy and self-help books, she realized that no matter what she did, or how hard she tried, she still wasn’t able to overcome her past. It was finally when she woke up in the psych ward after her third failed suicide attempt that she knew she somehow must find the answer to her pain, or she’d stay forever stuck in a spiral of depression, suicidal thoughts, self-sabotage, and addiction.

Rhonda Chopping BoardThrough the exploration of real-world assignments that she began to give herself, what Rhonda discovered is a pathway to freedom that cuts through the false beliefs, negative thoughts, and silent secret fears that every human being carries. Her simple yet life-altering method is called Fearless Living. Her method is based in cognitive principles that are proven to change the neural pathways in the brain and allow people to experience richer and more fulfilled lives. Her tools are grounded, practical and doable leaning on everyday examples that help create immediate connection and change for the layperson.

An Emmy-Award winner and repeat Oprah guest, Rhonda was the first Life Coach on reality television in the world on the first-show of its kind, Help Me Rhonda. Next, Rhonda changed lives on the hit NBC reality show Starting Over and named its “most valuable player” by The New York Times and heralded as “America’s Favorite Life Coach.” To date, Rhonda has altered lives in over 600 episodes of reality television that aired in more than 25 countries, and impacted millions worldwide.

A respected life strategist, Britten is both inspired and inspiring – with a pinpoint ability to see through to the core of the issues at hand, and to address them straight on – with generous doses of spunk, compassion, and humor. What truly sets her apart though is her gifts for instinct and intuition, honed over years of coaching thousands of clients in a wide range of settings: From private sessions, to workshops and courses, to television shows in the US and abroad. Her authentic and relatable spirit is the vehicle for her unmatched expertise to be delivered – in a no-nonsense manner that consistently yields maximum results. Rhonda is adept at creating dynamic action-oriented exercises designed to compliment her simple yet sophisticated “Wheel of Fear” and “Wheel of Freedom” models upon which her work is based.

Rhonda is a proud recipient of the “Coach of the Year” Award, and the “Smart Woman of the Year” Award. She is a blog favorite at, and a guaranteed standing ovation speaker for numerous corporations and organizations, including Southwest Airlines, Blue Shield of California, Northrup Grumman, and many more.

Rhonda’s unwavering belief in the power of a true support network gave birth to the Fearless Living Institute. Based on the idea that “no one can be fearless alone,” FLI hosts free public introductory classes, online courses, in-person events and workshops, and “Starting Over Intensives” – and is also home to comprehensive certification programs for both Life Coaches and Trainers. Plus, you can find her work in therapists offices to improve communication and heal relationships, in the government counseling military vets, in hospitals supporting nurse-doctor-patient relationships and in schools working with students and faculty.

Rhonda’s unquestionable passion is furthering the global reach of the spirit and freedom found in fearlessness. To that end, she is fully in her element when training Coaches. Her Life Coach Certification Program (LCCP), one of the first in the world, is considered by many to be the “Ivy League of Life Coach training”. Business-in-a-Box (BIAB), her train-the-trainer program open to Certified Fearless Living Coaches, uses her work as the foundation for her Coaches to educate the public via a different medium, facilitating a variety of one- and two-day in-person Fearless Living workshops.

Rhonda’s four books include bestsellers Fearless Living (which contains her groundbreaking “Wheel of Fear” and “Wheel of Freedom” work), Change Your Life in 30 Days, Fearless Loving , and Do I Look Fat in This?
