I could write a complete memoir around my experience with Fawn. Before I get into it, I want to be very straightforward: Fawn: -Incredibly smart with huge range of knowledge in counseling and resources -Infinitely compassionate -Super easy to talk to and considerate of me -My biggest cheerleader (I'm talking up there next to my mom) -Worth every penny Me: (and you, future client!) -Stuck / Confused / Unhappy -Willing to be utterly honest with Fawn and myself -Open to making big and small lifestyle changes -Committed to spend as much reasonable time on coaching exercises and reading -(4 months later) Crazy in love with myself and so proud to have embarked on this journey to create my HELL YES life I liken my experience with Fawn to be, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." (Buddha) I was in a really tough place in my life, feeling like I had no direction or even a compass to guide me. Fawn struck me with a phrase in her bio that said that she helps women who feel like they are stuck. I totally identified with that. I knew that something needed to change in my life. I originally reached out with the intent that it would be my career, but working with Fawn became so much more. With her guidance and support I have made incredible changes in my life, self-appreciation, discipline, relationships, spirituality, and happiness. We started unpacking the deepest of deep limiting beliefs that I had about myself. In no way would I describe this process as easy, but the payoff is oh so sweet. I have personal testimonies from the people around me (some of who don't know that I'm working with a coach) that recognize a change in my daily happiness. One of the MANY things I have loved about working with Fawn is her ability to zero in on what I need. She has incredible knowledge combined with a natural intuition of how to help her clients grow. Even if I didn't know what I would accomplish on a given call, it was her talent and expertise that helped me each step along the way. She introduced me to new methods of communication and taught me many exercises that I will continue to use whenever I am faced with challenging situations for the rest of my life. She also recommends great books :) Another area of note where I noticed a huge change in the course of my coaching with Fawn is my self-discipline. I was really struggling with accomplishing anything that felt like "work". (Outside of work.) I was a writer that hadn't written in years and through my personalized action items (or assignments) I began a very therapeutic return to my art. I also started creating a schedule and setting goals for myself. Over time, the result and accomplishment of doing the "work" totally outweighed the dread that hovers around procrastination. I was able to change a really bad habit that I specifically identified in the beginning of this journey. I have a remarkable amount of quantifiable self-improvement in my google docs that I am so proud of. I have to second another review I saw saying if "you're wondering whether or not to take the plunge..." DO IT. Your life is about to change.

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!

    Before I worked with Jon, I felt unsure about how I wanted to proceed in my career. We explored different options I had been thinking about. 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.

    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!

    If you are reading this…you are in the right place! You have found Donna Bond and your life will never be the same. That is what happened to me. The company I work for hired Donna as a marketing consultant and as the director of marketing, it turned out they also hired me a life coach. It has been the most extraordinary professional year of my life. Donna was so effective and gentle in helping me be a better leader and provided guidance and tools that I now use every day to manage up, down and all around in my job. It has also been an extraordinary personal year. Donna has brought so much light into areas of my life that were stuck, which has resulted in amazing growth for me spiritually. She is helpful in connecting my actions to the results and coaching me on how to make shifts for desired results, which ultimately works for every area of my life!

    Coach Gabrielle was amazing!!! This was my first time receiving life coaching so I did not really know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised, however. She was extremely helpful not only by providing me with valuable advice and insight but her kindness, genuineness, & warmth was more than I could ask for. I am so thankful for her support and encouragement when I felt I had no where else to go. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a life/career coach or counselor or anyone who feels “stuck” like I was. I’m so glad I made the leap! Thank you so much Coach Gabrielle!!!

    Grace is a phenomenal coach! I came to her at a time when I was experiencing a lot of turbulence with my relationships and in my career. With her fantastic listening skills, compassion and keen insights, she helped me quickly understand the source of my personal and professional challenges. She then supported me to replace negative thoughts, ambiguous boundaries and self-defeating behaviors with positive thoughts and habits and helped me develop a clear vision of what I want (as well as a plan on how to get it). Grace has a great ability to get right to the source of a problem and provides excellent guidance, resources and tools that are of tremendous value. She got me unstuck and feeling strong, heard, and productive again. Grace goes above and beyond expectation and is a true God send!

    Where do I even begin? I am a 54 year old lady that as I've aged and been diagnosed with Cushing's Syndrome had really started gaining weight and losing my self esteem but then I found Ticia and what a blessing she's been! I was very self conscious about my weight due to Cushing's and my age but Ticia made me feel so comfortable and good about myself. With Cushing's you lose muscle and strength I thought that would be a challenge as it has been with other personal trainers but not with Ticia. She sat and listened to me and cared what I was going through and then she got to work getting me on the road to a healthier lifestyle! She's not only an amazing fitness trainer she was amazing at helping me plan healthy, good meals. You put all that together with her beautiful spirit and soul and how much she cares what more could I ask for? She laughs with me and cries with me but she picks me up makes me dust myself off and keep on going! I could write a book on what she's done for me! If your looking to get healthy and fit Ticia McIllwain is the one to call! Brenda K.

      I had a great experience working on my resume with Jeffrey! His responses were quick, and I heard back from him with updates multiple times per day. He was very supportive, encouraging, and professional. If you applying for a job in the medical field, you may be reassured by the idea that his wife has been a nurse for over 20 years and can offer insight from that angle as well. This might be a unique preference to me, but I also appreciated that he didn't require multiple lengthy phone calls before deciding if he'd work for me or not; while I am completely sure he would oblige, I appreciated being able to contact him when convenient for me, being someone who has a variable sleep schedule. Thanks for your help!!

      Layla is great to work with. Since my consultations with Layla I have lost 10lbs. Layla was instrumental in guiding me toward a better lifestyle with emphasis on moderate exercise and changes in diet. After meeting Layla you will figure out she has an extensive background in nutrition and has worked as a personal trainer. She will listen carefully to your current situation and your goals. If you follow her advice to the letter you will meet your own personal fitness and nutrition goals. Plus she has a great sparkling personality to go with the dietary advice. All in all working with Layla is a smart decision.

      About

      Starting or having a real estate career doesn’t come with a user’s manual. Agents start with a license, big dreams, learn by experience, and succeed by perseverance and determination. The truth is, most brokers don’t have time to train properly and don’t make enough money off their agents to care. This consulting program is an open book policy from a broker who still operates a brokerage, sells real estate, and has a track record to training high producing agents.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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

      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.

      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 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.   

      What is a career counselor?

      If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

      Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
