Breslov Coaching With Chaya Rivka Zwolinski


“Life’s obstacles are sent to increase desire.”

 Rebbe Nachman of Breslov


“I believe that this work we do together should help you live a more joyful life, gain more insight into yourself and your relationships and develop personal spiritual awareness.”

Chaya Rivka Zwolinski, BreslovCoach

A Note To You

Dear Friend,


You are here for a reason. Your life is precious and your one-of-a-kind neshama (soul) is beloved to Hashem. My mission is to share Rebbe Nachman’s tools (Breslov teachings) which will help you on your path of self-discovery. Joy-building is a binding thread that runs through this work we do together.


Talking to another person from the heart, without a script, is an unpremeditated path of personal growth rich in serendipity and Hashgacha Pratit (Divine Providence.) Traveling this path can help you reach new places of insight and development. Whether it is called counseling or coaching (or something else entirely), focused yet flexible discussion illuminated by Breslov insights, can help you develop both spiritually and emotionally and repair and bring joy to your relationships – with Hashem, with other people, and with yourself.


I invite you to join with me in the healing work of self-discovery, growth, and joy, 


Chaya Rivka Zwolinski

BreslovCoach Q & A

What is Breslov Coaching?

  • In brief, Breslov Coaching is an individualized exploration of your unique life path which will help you achieve a sense of wellbeing, meaning and connection in many life areas, especially your relationships with Hashem, with other people, and with yourself.

What is the basis for this work?

  • Breslov Coaching is rooted in the psycho-spiritual teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov. The tools the Rebbe offers to each individual person are profound. His wisdom, insight, and knowledge of the psyche touches the mind, heart and soul. I believe no other course of study or practice is as rich in opportunities for personal growth and soul-healing. 

Can Breslov Coaching help me set and reach goals?

  • Yes. We may begin with a discussion of what issues you feel are important to you right now. Together we can discover and define your goals. We can also work with a less goal-oriented approach, which may be helpful in many cases. Each person’s needs are unique.

What issues will I be able to focus on in Breslov Coaching?

  • The focus of the work we do together is about understanding and connection. Topics that we can address from a psycho-spiritual perspective may include self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, marriage and intimacy, family and children, building a healthier emotional life, self-knowledge and self-image, finding your true calling (career development and personal goals), middot development, addiction-related issues, fears and phobias, anxiety, depression or other emotional issues, achieving balance, and more.

How is BreslovCoach different from other coaching programs?

  • Unlike other programs or credentials, Breslov Coaching is not a program, system, formula, or set path. I borrow the term “coaching” because it is a term everyone recognizes, however, the work we do together is unique to you. Together, we can set up parameters that are comfortable and affordable for you. If you are looking for a system, method, or formal game plan, you might prefer another type of counseling or coaching. You must choose what’s best for you.

Is there a discount for buying packages of sessions?

  • No. Nor is there ever any pressure to purchase a specific number of sessions. 

Is BreslovCoach therapy?

  • Breslov coaching, like all good counseling, is therapeutic, but it is not psychotherapy. My professional experience especially as a speaker and writer in the field of behavioral wellness, and training in kosher evidence-based psychotherapy and holistic healing techniques, is helpful to the work we’ll do together.

What issues can you help me with? 

  • BreslovCoach has helped people make breakthroughs at work or home and find the motivation they need to achieve balance and success. BreslovCoach has also proven extremely helpful to people who’ve struggled with a variety of deeper issues including generalized anxiety disorder; social anxiety; phobias (flying phobia, social phobia, agoraphobia, phobias related to intimacy, etc.); borderline personality disorder; PD-NOS; depression; and addiction (substance abuse as well as behavioral addictions.) BreslovCoach has helped people with painful pasts discover the good points inside themselves, find peace and resolution, while returning to a place of spiritual connection and joy.

How did you get involved in coaching?

  • My work began as an organic outgrowth of being a teacher and mentor to women and girls. As my work in this area became more complex, I began to study and write about motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, and client-centered therapy. I also studied Social Work Research at the graduate level. Previously, I’ve taken graduate level coursework in TCM, and studied numerous holistic health topics, in addition to other areas of study. I have been writing about Breslov thought, emotional wellbeing, and behavioral health for nearly a decade; holistic health and mind-body topics for three decades. I’m the author of May You Have a Day: Making Every Day Better with the Teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov  and Mashiach: Hope for Turbulent Times. I’m  also the co-author of the best-selling Therapy Revolution: Find Help, Get Better and Move On (HCI), a patient-centered therapy book which has been used as a text in both undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as co-author of The Parent-Child Dance: A Guide to Help You Understand and Shape Your Child’s Behavior. I also wrote for for ten years.

What’s your motivation for the work you do?

  • I want other women to benefit from the life-changing teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov as I have done myself. In other words, I want to give back. On a personal note, I feel such gratitude to Hashem when I can share the Tzaddik’s teachings in a way that resonates with an individual and helps her move forward. I believe that this work we do together should be effective in helping you live a more joyful life, gain more insight into yourself, and develop stronger relationships with Hashem, other people, and yourself. 

Do you teach Breslov Coaching?

  • Breslov Coaching is unique for each person. Others can and should have their own approach. Also, I personally have never found one-size-fits-all systems or methods appealing (in any healing discipline.) However, if you benefit from specific systems or methods, and they work for you, go for it. Each person is an individual. Do what works!

What are Breslov Coaching fees?

  • The fee for a coaching session is $130. Included is a coaching session of 1 hour, and follow-up emails and/or texts on an “as available” basis.

Note: If someone is experiencing a debilitating emotional, mental-health, or addiction issue, I suggest getting an evaluation by an experienced, qualified, therapist with a solid Torah perspective and if possible, a background in Breslov and the teachings of Rebbe Nachman. Any professional should be able to tell you what their successful outcome rate is. For help finding an effective therapist, it might be helpful to use the tools in Therapy Revolution: Find Help, Get Better and Move On (Without Wasting Time or Money); HCI Books. At the same time, working on the spiritual aspect of recovery from emotional problems or addiction is absolutely vital.-
