Coaching Through Acceptance

CTA ( Coaching Through Acceptance™)  helps professionals explore the relationship between Acceptance and Intention to support their clients in creating appropriate and meaningful strategies for life.

“If you are looking for a full-bodied course that invite all the feelings and experiences of a wholehearted life, Coaching Through Acceptance offers mature reflection, provocative readings, and intelligent interaction. Jessi La Costa does not shy away from the more difficult emotions of fear, sadness, and anger as some coaches tend to do. She offers opportunities for coaches to expand into more challenging areas with their clients, themselves, and a thereby enriched world. I highly recommend any course Jessi offers.” LLR, Board-Certified Coach

My expectations were definitely exceeded and I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in improving their level of presence with themselves and their clients, and supporting their clients in accepting themselves, their skills, dreams, and obstacles and moving forward.


 Jessi LaCosta puts her heart and soul into creating excellent online classes!  Take her classes. You will not be disappointed!   Here is a thank you I sent to her after the course completion.   “I want to send you a heart-felt thanks for helping create community in our class.  It was a pleasure to be involved with such a great group of people.  You truly channel the ideas and energy of your passion for teaching Resilience and IPNB to all of us to do great things with the ideas and concepts we learn. There is so much great course material to digest (in a good way) – many thought provoking ideas generated, and such a great sense of community in which we could share our ideas and thoughts about the course material.”  Kat P.M.S., LPC, BCC
