“As a keynote speaker and author on issues related to traumatic loss, complicated grief and building personal resilience, I highly recommend Conscious Activation’s Thinking Program. Dr. Susanne’s program can help people who are mentally stuck or suffering from the negative burdens that they carry around from past and present life challenges and traumatic events. Her program provides a step by step process that allows people to shift their unhealthy thinking habits to healthier ones through a sciencebased approach. She took a very complex, scientific subject and transformed it into an easy to understand and easy to watch video format. Viewers will feel very supported by Dr. Susanne’s program and the process she walks you through. I was impressed that the program is grounded in science and evidence-based research techniques. Clinicians, support group facilitators, and grief coaches ought to consider using Dr. Susanne’s Thinking Program in their work with bereaved clients struggling with intense feelings like self-blame, guilt, and avoidance of triggers, to increase their sense of control. I like the fact that the video and workbook portions of the Program can be completed in about 15 minutes a day over a 2 to 4 week period, and that it includes 2 short summary, self-talk audio files that help people in their day to day implementation of the steps. Dr. Susanne’s commitment to contributing to people’s lives in a significant and affordable way is inspiring. I would suggest to anyone who wants to improve their ability to create an extraordinary destiny, do not overthink this. Sign up for the Conscious Activation Thinking Program today.”

“But I Didn’t Say Goodbye: Helping Families After a Suicide”

“There is so much pain and suffering in the world today. I am a proud, 75year-old black American man, disabled, Vietnam Veteran, United States Navy, currently working with homeless veterans. After suffering through the loss of a loved one to COVID-19, witnessed the senseless death of George Floyd, social unrest and rioting, brought me to a new and unimaginable level of fear, pain and suffering. Normally in control of my emotions, I began to have doubts about things, to experience emotional episodes, which became somewhat unsettling. In fear from my distress, I began to search for answers. I found a new sense of hope in a program I found online. ”

“It’s called Conscious Activation Thinking Program by Dr. Susanne. It has given me a better understanding of how I was trained to think and taught me the skills to change my thinking (on purpose). I now feel I have more command of my thinking. I feel in charge of my own peace of mind, providing me with new perspective and respite in my pain, literally.”

“I truly believe this program can provide other people with relief from the negativity they are suffering – including racism. It works and is so relevant to the needs of so many suffering through our current crises. The Thinking Program has been a Godsend to me, and I believe it is going to change the world we live in.”

“Conscious Activation is a must for anyone looking to change his or her life for the better. Dr. Susanne Cohen breaks down a variety of common life scenarios throughout the program, and provides tips on how to get through those experiences gracefully and with a positive attitude. After going through this program, I find it easier to change my thinking in the moment from the negative to the positive, and because of that, it’s much easier to just be happy! This has specifically been a big help to me during the current coronavirus pandemic, because life looks so different from what it did just a month ago. I am home more often than I thought possible with my children and my husband, and the dynamic has changed. Conscious Activation has helped me to see these changes in a more positive light. I have also found value in the Conscious Activation workbooks. One of the first activities, the assessment, has been especially helpful in assisting me to evaluate areas of my life I haven’t thought to evaluate before. I highly recommend this program to anyone, in any stage of life, who wants to feel happier and have a more positive outlook on life.”

    “I love the Conscious Activation Thinking Program. I’ve always been committed to learning and growing throughout my life and have been exposed to many other programs. This one is different and the best I’ve ever experienced. It’s all about improvement, and how you can be better. It makes you think in a different, more positive way.

    Most of our society is negative. We need to overcome all of the negative thoughts that pop up all the time. This program helps you change your thinking and develop a much more positive attitude. About life and about yourself. People need to learn how to love themselves, especially with abuse, and this program helps you get there. Our country needs this! In my opinion, kids coming into the world need this. It should be a required course for every high school and college student so they can get a better and stronger start in life. It will actually be beneficial to all people, and even the people around you.

    I was able to complete the program on my own time and in the comfort of my own home. The information was simple and easy to understand. It was all online so if I missed something, I could rewind it and review it again. I love the two short audio tapes that I listen to on my phone which provide a summary of the information from the courses. I listen to them every day. We all need that kind of reinforcement daily – big time.”

    “I would recommend this course to anyone and everyone”

    “Dr. Susanne Cohen has been my career and life coach for many years. There have been many times that I have been frustrated with a situation at work or the direction of my career. She gave me encouraging words and helped me think through my problem. She always helps me see my issues from different angles so I can put the situations into perspective. The Conscious Activation Thinking Program has transformed my ability to interact with people and to be more empathetic towards their points of view. She has been an invaluable person in my life.”

    “This program is powerful. It’s a true solution that will change lives and help a lot of people. Most people go through life and don’t know what’s driving them. Conscious Activation helps you find out, and then shows you how to shift your thinking so you can change it.

    Something was missing before I took this program that was preventing me from moving forward in my life financially and with my relationships at work. I was being reactive and was sabotaging myself. This program helped me to shift my thinking. It has you ask real questions about yourself. It guided me through self-reflection. I wasn’t just watching a video. It was much more experiential to me.

    The information presented was very scientific and valid. It opened the door for me to understand how and why I react the way I do. I also understand that I need to use the tools presented every day, just like using a muscle, to make my skills stronger.

    At my job, I have been able to bring these techniques to the people I work with – helping them to change their thinking, and we work on it on an everyday basis. Financially, I shifted my thinking from a scarcity to an abundance mentality.

    There are so many benefits from Conscious Activation. You have to experience it. From a general perspective, everyone wants to increase their happiness, love, health, success and relationships in their lives. This is a way to experience that and understand it’s not outside of them, but inside of them – they just have to access it.

    Dr. Cohen has such positive energy, even when talking about negative information. She discusses many sensitive topics and uses real-life situations. She shows you how to get through an intense, negative situation and still experience joy in life. She also shares personal experiences and stories which is so powerful. I would recommend this to everyone.”
