About Rebellious Coaching

Rebellious Coaching was founded by James Cole in his quest to empower people to live free in their own authenticity. Our main goal is to develop new techniques that go beyond the realms of regular motivational and life coaching. Then incorporate them into powerful programs that are designed to give our clients the best possible results in the least amount of time with the longest lasting effects. Uncovering your inner strength, courage and power to make positive change in your life, often with immediate results.

Personal Empowerment IS Personal Freedom

It may seem counterintuitive to regular business models, however we don’t want you as a long lasting client that is locked into ongoing programs forever more. We want to get you to where you want to be as quickly and effectively as possible. After that, all we want to hear from you is the occasional postcard or phone call to tell us how great you are going. It is our belief that your success will translate into word of mouth marketing for us rather than trying to milk every dollar out of each client. Our whole approach to business is built on receiving great testimonials.

"This is what I am... It's what I've always been...
It just took me forty years to label it and give it structure."


James spent over twenty years in the film industry working primarily as an editor and visual effects artist for feature films, commercials and music videos at his production company Hysteria Productions. It was here that he developed a passion for the human mind, how it works and how to best guide it for the greatest emotional response in the entertainment he was creating.

“One of the reasons I wanted to make movies was to tell stories of people waking up to the manipulation present in every day life. To encourage them to take responsibility for their own lives and aspire to achieve greatness. All I ended up doing was contributing to the problem.”

Uneasy with the knowledge that his unique skills were being utilised to get people to buy stuff, distort truths and play upon their fears, he made the choice to step away from the film industry and return to school to add structure and discipline to his passion for the mind, in a way in which he could empower people as he originally intended.

Applying himself to the Masters of Life Coaching degree at ICF (International Coaching Federation) accredited The Life Coaching College. James earned certifications across multiple disciplines; Master Practitioner of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programing), Conscious Hypnosis, Advanced Matrix Therapies and Life Coaching as well as earning certificates in Running Workshops and Coaching High Performing Teams.

Today James focuses on empowering people to transform their lives and elevate them to their highest potential. Working predominantly with Hypnosis and Matrix time-line therapies, he is constantly researching and developing new ways to make the techniques even more powerful by incorporating skills and disciplines from his previous life as a filmmaker.
