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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

    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.

    • I have been to several therapists in the past and am usually very skeptical of life coaching and therapy When I began phone sessions with Grace, she was able to help me discover what was really at the bottom of my concerns and how I viewed the world. She gave me guidance to start me on a journey of self introspection. Grace very quickly helped me feel that the road to self-development and happiness is a rewarding one in which I have a trustworthy ally. She helped me understand my needs for stability, become successful in my home and personal life and I have become a stronger person because of her. I highly recommend Grace.

    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!!!

      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!

      After a key session with Gina, I gave thanks for getting a raise at work -- something I had been gathering the courage to request for many months. When I made the request to our director after my session, she ended up giving me almost all of what I asked for! I'm grateful for Gina's guidance in helping me tap into my own intuition, and the deeper magic that's accessible to all of us.

      One of the most powerful aspects of working with Sepideh is her commitment to playing the game of life full out and with an open heart! The level of Fun, Joy and Excitement that she embodies everyday is ruly inspiring. After a short time, with her guidance I was able to authentically cultivate and bring forward similar inspired states of being within myself. Her kind and unconditionally loving presence made me feel at ease so I was able to honestly communicate about the challenging circumstances I was going through. Her vast knowledge of Spiritual Psychology, powerful coaching techniques and a beautiful heart-centered awareness is what really allowed me to feel into what I was experiencing. Specifically, what made a difference for me is that she was really THERE, patiently holding space for the transformation to occur. She has a diverse coaching skill set and a consciousness that holds and challenges you to work through your own unique process in a beautiful way. My results include personal transformations, new levels of spiritual evolution and a greater feeling of self-love after each and every session.

      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!

        Just wanted to give a shout out to Celia! We've been working together for a few weeks now and it's exactly what I needed. After a few years of major changes, I was feeling pretty overwhelmed and couldn't seem to get back on track on my own. Celia has been great about helping to set goals with food and money, writing resume/cover letters and in general not allowing me to beat myself about totally normal feelings. I feel better than I have in months! So thank you Celia and if anyone else is feeling the pressure of life and needs a little guidance, I highly recommend reaching out to her.

        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.
