I've always cared about expanding my english vocabulary and grammatical skills. I find it comes in quite useful for a professional career. The assistance I received gave me the confidence to excel in my professional and personal life. Lois has expanded my knowledge of the english language and I would recommend her to anyone seeking assistance or just looking to expand their knowledge of the english language.

Fawn has been coaching me for several months now and it has been a life changing experience. I have never had a coach before Fawn and decided to give it a try because I needed a boost in motivation and some help moving into another career. I was skeptical of the whole coaching thing at first but I am curious by nature and the first session is free so I thought, "why not"? Normally I'll spend a whole day pondering and planning a project and many times not really accomplish much, but in 90 min with Fawn and her "laser focus" approach we always come up with a clear plan of attack. I always walk away feeling supercharged and motivated to take the appropriate steps towards my goals. Sometimes we all need someone to help us organize our thoughts and hold us accountable for getting things done. At no time I feel as if she is telling me what to do. Rather she is great at knowing exactly the questions to ask so that I can reach the solution on my own. I can talk with her about everything from work to relationships as well as my personal challenges. Thanks Fawn! I look forward to continuing our journey together.

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!

I found Kandy several years ago while searching for a counselor to help my young adult daughter who struggled with a drug addiction. What I thought was just going to help my daughter ended out being a life changing journey for myself, my entire family, and more people than I can count. The principles and skills Kandy teaches have been so profoundly helpful I couldn't keep myself from sharing them. In fact, I am currently seeing several of my own clients and becoming certified as an "As You Think You Are" life coach myself! One of my clients described the difference between this approach and his experience in traditional therapy this way: "Traditional counseling seems to keep me feeling like I need my counselor. This is helping me to NOT need counseling." I guess it's working ourselves out of a job, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

    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!

    I've been going to Kay for five years for coaching on various career-related needs. She always asks strategic questions and provides objective feedback in a positive manner. She also follows up to discuss how things have changed/improved and provides additional guidance when necessary. I've always felt comfortable seeking guidance from Kay and look forward to continuing to work with her.

    Natalia Benson has an amazing gift to offer the world that is unique to her and her practice. I highly recommend seeing Natalia for life coaching and healing. I leave sessions after working with Natalia feeling so serene and clear about my life path. Natalia is a natural intuitive and is able to see and pick up on things that the normal person would not which is why I love talking to her. Natalia is an amazing listener, has an open-mind/heart, and I am confident to say that I would trust her to lead me in the right direction in any area that I need work on in my life, whether it be career, spirituality, finances, self-esteem, relationships, love, navigating emotions, self-care, literally everything! You will get way more than you ever expected with Life Coaching from Natalia!

    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!

    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!!!

      Randy Moraitis has been my coach through a difficult divorce and subsequent career change. He has the ability to focus in on the areas I most need help with and then works with me to create a realistic plan to effectively move toward and achieve my goals. He listens well and is fully present each time I meet with him, which is highly important to me. As a result of his coaching I was able to navigate my divorce and heal more quickly than I would have without his knowledge and guidance. I continue to work with him to further articulate my career path and how it ties in with my life purpose. Randy is continually furthering his own skills and knowledge through continuing education, which gives me further confidence in his abilities and his heart to bring his best to his clients. Without reservation, I give Randy Moraitis my highest recommendation.

        Jessie has played an integral role in shaping my career and quickly became the older sister I always hoped for and wanted. She is one of the most loving and generous people I have ever met - always happy and willing to give her time and energy to those who need it. Jessie truly has a passion for helping others and is always doing what she can to uplift those around her each and every day. Inspiring and empowering both men and women to follow their dreams is what she was put on this earth to do. Over the years Jessie has been there to always cheer me on and guide me through life's crazy twists and turns. I am so grateful for the wisdom she has bestowed upon me. She has helped me so much professionally, but I am most grateful for what she has done for me personally. She has always reflected back to me the person I hope to be, and as a result I can say that she has taught me to truly love myself. Having Jessie as my mentor has been one of my greatest blessings. She is a remarkable human being. These words simply do not do justice to what an incredible mentor she is. Jessie has forever changed my life, and I know if you let her - she will do the same for you!

        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.
