I don't even know where to begin. Prior to meeting Michelle, I had no idea what a life coach was. All I knew was that I was stuck and I needed a bit more guidance in my life and that's when my cousin recommended her to me. Michelle is beyond amazing. When I first met her she gave me her book and her workbook. These tools, along with her, helped me through my whole process. I was able to self reflect more and change my way of thinking. She's helped me have courage to do some of the scariest things I could never imagine myself doing. She's helped better direct my life to where I want to go and open to my eyes to my own truths. She has a passsion for what she does and it truly shows in her work. There's never any judgment and she's able to share her toughest experiences . Michelle has an amazing heart and only has the best intentions. I admire her strength the most. I'm extremely grateful for her guidance and highly recommend her as a life coach.

If you're like me, you're reading this wondering if you should take the plunge. While each situation is unique, I gotta say... DO IT! If you have the means and could use guidance in any aspect of your life, absolutely dive in. Fawn is incredible. I've been working with her for over a month now and I've seen so many significant changes in my life, changes that wouldn't have been possible without Fawn's support and knowledge. I contacted Fawn when I decided I needed a more hands on approach to improving my outlook and my habits. What I've achieved in my short time with her is far greater than I ever expected. I come away from our sessions more positive, more motivated, and refreshed. Her meticulous handling of each session, her ability to listen with an intent to understand, her check-ins, and her resource sharing is so intuitive. She knows because she's been there. Her scheduling system is wonderfully easy, which is especially helpful when dealing with different time zones. She utilizes Google Docs for session notes, which I love! I can carry my progress in my pocket. Fawn does an amazing job laying out a path at the beginning of coaching, but she also knows when to make adjustments. Much like life, you can only prepare so much before you have to simply run with what you've been given. I love that each conversation feels like catching up with a wise friend I've known for years, all while aspects of my goals are starting to fall into place. I'm incorporating her suggested action items in a way I've never been able to do before: effortlessly and optimistically. I'm gushing, but so what? One thing we touch on so often--and for good reason--is gratitude. I'm so grateful to have found Fawn and I can't wait to see where the remainder of our sessions lead.

My work with Coach Mike has been significantly life changing, literally! In just a short time, he has helped me to get my thoughts, goals, and dreams out of my head and into a realistic workable plan of action. I needed direction concerning my career and finances---and a step by step plan on how to get there. I couldn't seem to figure it out on my own, not to mention the lack of focus and discipline to see it through. Coach Mike was able to provide me with great feedback and useful resources in initiating the process. I know that this will not be easy, but I am convinced that because I have had his guidance to assist me, I will experience success in the areas of which I am determined to excel.

Sean was very helpful and totally professional. His office environment was very relaxed. I needed help developing my resumé, and especially conveying my professional attributes and not just work experience. Sean provided extra help after our sessions via email in the evenings and over the weekend. I'm extremely satisfied with Sean's services and will probably return, and I'd recommend him to anyone needing resumé and career advice. Thanks Sean!

    My family has known John for more than 8 years, and we have been blessed by his guidance and leadership in many ways. As members of a church under John’s leadership, we experienced wisdom and insight in his teaching, as well as compassion and warmth in his pastoral ministry. During several family crises, John has been present with us. He has helped us to navigate our family through these painful circumstances, and helped us in making difficult life decisions. He challenges us when needed, but always does so with gentleness and humility. John is kind, and he radiates warmth. We would recommend him to anyone looking for guidance through difficult life circumstances, spiritual crisis, grief/ loss of a loved one, or to anyone looking for a life coach or mentor. Our family loves and trusts John, and we could not recommend him more highly.

After working with Jon I felt better about what my next course of action was going to be in regards to achieving my goals. He helped me gain some clarity into what I really wanted. He also gave me some great tips to build my confidence and offered some great ideas on how to achieve great things.

      Rob was my trainer in DC. At the time I was playing roller derby and looking to rehab a dislocated knee and a previously injured shoulder. Thanks to Rob's guidance, I was able to keep skating without any further damage to me knee. He also taught me a lot about the dynamics of interval endurance, agility and sprinting. Oh and he got me to run for 15 minutes once without complaining by asking me questions about basketball. He is a fantastic trainer for anyone looking to up their athletic game, get fit or to get stronger after an injury.

      When I first spoke to Mira, I was in a really low place regarding my confidence and my career. She gave me the courage, plan, space, accountability, and motivation I needed to help me quit my job, start my own freelance business, and begin applying for a graduate degree, all without my falling apart in a sea of tears over monotonous tasks, overwhelming to do lists, and general anxiety. Mira has an amazing, calming presence, and she did a great job of making space for me to articulate my goals, vent (when needed) without veering too far off track, and isolate concrete actions I could take to move forward. We also did some mindset work together that has helped me so much on a day to day basis. Highly recommend Mira if you are a creative soul who needs a little help & guidance to begin systematically chasing your goals and dreams!

      Emily has such a great and comforting personality. When I meet with her, I feel like I’m really being heard, no matter what tangents I go on. Most importantly, she’s patient and allows time for me to work through my thoughts. I’ve referred friends over to her, and they have raved about her as well. Choose Emily to help guide you in your career or other parts of your life. You will be very happy you did!

      I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.

      Judy’s program is so valuable in every way. I felt it was a very essential program for everyone in whatever stage of life to take a pause and reassess and refresh. Judy ISN the real jewel behind it. She brings an energy and enthusiasm to every call. She helps you see things you may not have seen yourself with each weeks work, and is able to personalize the material to each client. I have referred her to Teo close friendship who also rave about how fundamentally important and life’s changing the programs are. Judy is part coach, part psychologist, part mentor, part everything. She really brings so much insight and experience. I loved this program and her guidance in making it a part of my life.

        Amy is a fantastic coach! Not only is she a great listener and an empathetic person, but she has the skills to help you discover what is hidden below your habits, the blocks that keep you stuck. I was in a real transition in my life (the confusion of an empty nest) and was mystified as to what I wanted for myself and in which direction I needed to travel. I grew immensely from my sessions with Amy and now feel more clear, powerful and free. With Amy's guidance, I am looking forward to a fun and fulfilling future!

        Greg was super helpful in guiding me through the steps from a working at a startup to now a small business owner. He not only helped me make careful but smart career decisions, he also helped me package myself and my idea in front of the investors. I needed much help with business modeling, financial modeling, and pitch deck compilation, and Greg taught me all in the most efficient way possible. I would not have been able to raise the funds I needed and be where I am without Greg today.

          Q & A

          Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

          What is a life coach?

          A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesn’t help solve problems from your past — they’re focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

          Regardless of which type of life coach you’re interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.

          What is a career coach?

          If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

          • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
          • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
          • Defining your career goals
          • Creating a plan for job searching
          • Improving networking strategies and skills
          • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
          • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
          • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

          How much does a life coach cost?

          A life coach helps clients set and reach professional and personal goals, develop positive habits, and deal with stress. Some people meet with a life coach once or twice, while others form an ongoing professional relationship, meeting regularly in person or on the phone. The average national cost to meet with a life coach ranges from $80 to $130 an hour. Some coaches offer per-session pricing, especially for one-time meetings; expect to pay an average of $100-$125. People who want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, career growth or lifestyle changes may be able to get discounted pricing in a package. For example, three 60-minute sessions cost an average of $300, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $350, and four 60- to 90-minute sessions plus unlimited contact between sessions cost an average of $400. Some specific types of coaching, such as relationship or marriage coaching, cost more than standard life coaching. For instance, three 60-minute relationship coaching sessions cost an average of $500, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $550, and six 60- to 90-minute sessions cost an average of $650 when purchased as a package. Training and experience can also affect the cost of hiring a life coach. An Associate Certified Coach, who holds a certification that requires only 60 hours of training and 100 hours of coaching experience, will charge less than a Master Certified Coach, who typically has at least 200 hours of training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.   

          Why is career counseling important?

          Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

          • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
          • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
          • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
          • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
          • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
          • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
          • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

          How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

          A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.

          Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
