Stephen helped me in identifying the correct techniques that will improve my health overall. Prior to hiring Stephen, I was doing on my own. But now, I learned how to do it "right" all the time. Stephen is really cool and great to work with. I am very impressed with his honesty, always arrives 5 mins earlier to the class. He trained me and my Wife with full focus and guidance. Stephen incorporated our needs, goals and home gym as part of his training. We both enjoyed working with Stephen. My wife and I are now full ready and motivated to continue on our own going forward. Thanks Stephen for all your help and patience in accommodating our challenging work schedule.

Honestly I had no idea I was working with him! I had seemed his service in requesting help with my health and with my career. I was instantly drawn to him and felt like I could open up with him! I can’t say it was an easy route bc by far it wasn’t! This experience has been by far one of the hardest obstacles I’ve ever had to encounter! I’ve been back in school and pretty much training myself through the whole process or at least it felt like I was alone struggling to make this happen but I’m now realizing that I have a whole Network of people on my side! You guys have given me what they call tough Love! I feel like a renewed & young again (speaking of mentally!) LoL I am just getting started! Have a whole life ahead of me! I’ll never be done learning! Always be helping, contributing, giving, achieveing and being all I can be! If for some reason I fail at a job I’ll still have my children and my children are the most important thing in this world to me! I’ve lost my twin sister years back and my life has been downward since then! John , thank you for that tough Loving! They are the reason I’ve changed! I thank God everyday for helping me to overcome my issues I once had! I look forward to coaching right along side of John! We all need to start helping one another even the small things can make a huge difference ! Anyone like to join in on change?! All is welcome! I’d like to thank all of those that were involved! God Bless each and everyone of you! To everyone’s success! Few others I’d like to mention , Palm beach Research Group, Marketers Traders Institute, Social Security, NBC, CBS, Funnel X Project, Go Daddy,Click Bank, Sen,.....there’s many many more! Forgive me in advance to those I haven’t mentioned. Once again God Bless I love you all! Together we can...CHANGE

Sean is an intuitive, insightful and compassionate healer. I went to him for help with my career. After a couple sessions it turned out it wasn't my career that was in need attention but other areas of my life. I had some internal mental blocks that we addressed. By doing some deep meditations, he helped me work through them. After each session I felt shifts happening in my life. They were subtle but very impactful. I can honestly say after working with Sean I feel more peaceful and content with where I am in my life. I strongly recommend using his services. It will be time and money well spent.

As a business owner and CEO most of my professional career, it is difficult to find someone who can cut through all the BS and get down to the core...my core...what drives me...what has held me back? What is the one thing that has been missing? Lea Goldenring helped me find those answers. She is very engaging and creates a very safe healthy environment in which to do some very productive work. I got more out of a few sessions with her than any of the many self help / self improvement books I have read. If you really want to take up your game, Lea is the "real deal" and is a pleasure to work with...Highly recommended!

Melissa's enthusiasm and positivity is infectious and present in everything she brings to the table. She's helped me question and think deeply about what I truly want in life, in both my career and my well being. She's pushed me outside of my comfort zone, and I've grown immensely. I highly recommend Melissa for anyone who is at a crossroads about their future!

I was really anxious and miserable because I had to go off my antidepressant medication during my pregnancy. Not only your coaching skills but your complete psychotherapeutic experience helped me learn to manage my stress levels and to prioritize my work schedule to find time for my own self nurture. You gave me many parenting resources and I feel confident and happy as a mother to Rebecca. First I was skeptical about my hability to get thrue this period without medication, but your guidance made all the difference in my daugther's and my own wellbeing. Thank you, your support got me through a very difficult time.

I've been working with Arya for about 18 months and I could not be happier with my experience. In our sessions, we focus primarily on how to navigate potential career opportunities and how to understand behavioral patterns that may hinder personal and professional relationships. Without question, his coaching has completely changed the way I understand myself, my behaviors, and the way I hope to interact with the world. He has a pragmatic approach to meeting me where I am, whether that be practical tips to reduce anxiety at work or coping with uncertainty and risk about major life decisions. The sessions have become increasingly more insightful as he learns more and more about me. As others have mentioned, he's also extremely kind, open-hearted, and trained to tackle a spectrum of life's challenges. Far and away the best coach/therapist/spiritual advisor I have ever encountered.

I've been training with Conrad since 2014. I had worked with other trainers for a number of years, but after training with Conrad for only six months, I was able to see unprecedented results and not only reach my personal fitness goals, but exceed them! The immediate results that I was able to observe in such a short time blew my mind! It was both rewarding and motivation to continue working even harder. Conrad introduced me to the benefits of heavy weight training, and he helped me to change my approach to eating and diet. What I like about working with Conrad is that he really understands the physiology behind everything we do, and he really listens to what my goals and concerns are. I can trust that my fitness plan is well thought out and methodical, and that there is a purpose behind every exercise and circuit that we do. My workout is really personalized for me. I recently turned 40, and I really wanted to do something to physically challenge myself. Thanks to Conrad, I now have two Spartan Races under my belt. He trained me so hard and prepared me so well that I had a blast getting through the race with no problem. I would never have been able to do it without Conrad's guidance. Conrad has helped me to get stronger and leaner than I've ever been. I feel like a different person and I look forward to pushing myself to the next level!

Wonderful experience working with Emily. Just getting my startup off the ground and she provided excellent guidance as I worked to define the values of my organization and make growth-related decisions based on the mission we crafted together. We had one visioning session and two deep dive work sessions. Emily created great summary packages after each session and sent notes capturing what we did in the sessions. My business is a for-benefit company involved in women's wellness. Costs ran about $3,000 total not including expenses. Took about two months. Totally worth it because now I feel like my business is super rooted in its values and set to grow in a sustainable way.

I came to Emily for resume editing. I was in my job for three years since college and wanted to make a change. My resume turned out great! Through the process, I realized I wanted support with my job hunt because I wasn't even really sure what would make me happy. So I started coaching with Emily and it was amazing. First of all, she is a really kind person, which made it easy for me to open up. Second, she just gets right into things, which was helpful for me since I had some urgency with my job hunting timeline. Third, she is SO supportive. I saw her for a couple of months and then had to pause because I got a job and wanted to travel before I started. I'd happily recommend Emily to anyone looking for help with their resume and career support.

I am currently a special education teacher looking to move into an administrative position. Leanne was a huge resource with assisting in locating resume examples and educating me on what a professional resume should entail. She proofread my current resume and gave me constructive feedback on how to present myself for my desired job. She read and provided feedback for job cover letters, especially highlighting appropriate experience for each job I was applying for. She was highly professional, kind, and highly effective with coaching me in regards to my resume. I highly recommend her and Communication Coaching to anyone in need of building a resume and all other services! She is a great person to work with and I will always refer her when someone is in need of coaching for public speaking, editing of professional documents, and or advice on advancing careers.

Donna is not only a knowledgable career adviser but also a very supportive mentor throughout my job search and offer negotiation process. In the first meeting, she already identified my weak points and developed a plan for tackling each of them. Throughout the process I learned to communicate succinctly, maintain poise and overall demonstrate seasoned professional material. After working with Donna, I have successfully landed a few offers and negotiated terms for my dream job which I am happily working on now. I definitely recommend Donna for anyone who is looking for a career adviser or for any help to advance her/his career. Just one meeting will help you understand the changes needed and where you can get to. I love to continue working with Donna!

Rick is a stellar coach! He helped me through huge transitions in my life. I have struggled my whole life with identifying my true passions. I had many interests but nothing that felt authentically me, that brought pure joy to my life because I loved it so much. I was searching outside of myself for new projects and prospects that I thought might help me attain what I needed to find happiness, fulfillment and success. Rick took me through the passion test in a way that guaranteed getting to my top 5 passions. There’s a process to it that will not fail even if you have no idea what your passions are and if you do think you know, you’ll be shocked to find out that you may be limiting yourself with what you think they are. Once Rick took me through the process, my passions seemed obvious to me because they were the things I dreamed of as a kid before I started telling myself all the reasons I could no longer pursue those dreams. My perceptions and built-in beliefs about myself and about life in general we’re keeping me from my passions and joy. Rick was relentless in keeping my attention focused on literally reprogramming my beliefs and perceptions about myself until little by little the new and healthy beliefs stuck. That’s when the real results started manifesting in my daily physical life. Doors and opportunities opened up and started flowing to me in support of my passions. My old beliefs were false but they became my truth because I started believing the lies I told myself. The stark contrast of my passions unfolding before my eyes literally brought tears to my eyes when I started seeing this. After eight months of coaching with Rick, I am truly living and actualizing my passions not only in my career but life in general. I no longer engage in anything that does not bring me joy or that is aligned with my passions. My friendships have shifted into much healthier relationships. The dysfunctional relationships have either fallen by the wayside or have healed as a result of healthier beliefs about myself and life. Life seems to be flowing with me...or me with it rather than feeling stuck. I can’t count the ways my life has changed and become balanced, joyful, prosperous and fun as a result of Rick’s dynamic, relentless and loving coaching skills and personality. You may hear many things from Rick that challenge you to look deeply into your self and you may not like what you hear and see but if you really want your life to improve, you will one day be grateful that you have Rick on your side. He gives his heart, mind and soul to help you achieve your highest self. He has certainly found his own passion!

Congratulations on considering working with Shannon Gibbs as your personal coach. In my experience with Shannon, I can attest to the value she brought to our relationship. She’s unlike a traditional counselor, rather, she brings to the table her coaching hat. Shannon’s skills and innate and spiritual wisdom provided me exactly what I needed during a rough patch where I was struggling with identifying my personal gifts and how they could be best used in a career profession. She helped guide me through an exercise where I was able to discover, through feedback of close family and friends, the personal qualities that I possessed that will propel me to my next career. It took this guided instruction to get me there. She has a nurturing and supportive style that is invaluable if you are feeling stuck and need a little nudge or feel defeated, worn out, confused, dealing with a life crisis or are just plain scared and tired of being stuck. She has backbone, passion, commitment, wisdom and persistence. She is also a natural teacher which shines though in her coaching because her focus is that you be set free so you can soar on your own. It is in these coaching conversations that she talks with you to find the root of your desire to become all that you were created to be. Shannon always has a word of encouragement or correction or wisdom and it’s always delivered in compassion and constructively. She has inspired me to pursue a career passion that, up until now, seemed distant and unattainable. I still have a lot of work and growing to do, but Shannon taught me how to be open to these new possibilities so that I can thrive where I’m meant to be.

My testimonial to you Arash Ghiasi: When Arash appeared in my life I was on the edge of losing all hope in humanity and giving up on life itself. I had poured my services, time, and efforts into multiple business opportunity ventures working aside owners with no integrity. I was left high and dry and not a penny to show for it. Arash literally pulled me out of the trenches of hell and misery and revived me back to life. His kind, nurturing words and spirit I could feel directly through the phone as he prayed for me. Not only did I have a spiritual awakening, and found my relationship with God again, be he instilled in me a new sense of self-confidence. Arash then provided me with tools, guidance, mentoring, and coaching enabling me to create a life I thought was impossible on my own. He lit the fire within me so much so that I hit the ground running pursuing my passion in the fitness and wellness industry I had left behind two years ago. As a business-minded, entrepreneur-driven, and educated woman I have found my lane and calling of performing God’s work in helping people transform their lives mind to body AND spirit! In a span of the three short weeks I have worked with Arash I have taken my business and life to a whole new level! I have new eyes to see and new mind to think in the way God would want me to think. I have now rebranded myself and my business, and have generated a steady flow of leads who have turned into new clients! I truly believe my guardian angel grandmother and God sent Arash to direct me and regain my faith. He coached me step by step how “fish” and get my feet back on the ground. I am the living and breathing testament of how Arash can and will revolutionize your life. Eternally grateful, and blessed. ~Kasia B.

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.
