I was 36 years old playing baseball in an 18+ league. My performance was slipping fast and I thought my playing career was coming to a close. Then my high school friend Nate stepped in. With his help with workouts, recovery and Advocare supplements, I'm back to being one of the better pitchers in the league now at 39! Highly recommended. He does a great job of training and getting you to the correct supplements.

Linh worked with me on grief counseling. I was still struggling some five years after the death of my son David. Although I was working and going through the motions of enjoying my life with my family, I was unintentionally consumed by anger. Through my therapy with Linh I was able to work through the issues that had dogged me throughout my life which culminated in the anger issues the stopped me from enjoying life as I should have. She is a very adept a able therapist who helped to turn my life around. I am now enjoying my life so much more. ThankYou Linh you made such a difference in my life

    Emily is priceless! I was hesitant to try a Life Coach and now that I have experienced Emily, I cannot imagine not having her guidance and support. She has a natural way of surfacing what needs to be addressed and allows me to blossom into the best that I can be in my career, relationships, and all aspects of life. Emily’s approach allows us both, together, co-create all that I desire and want to manifest in my life. My inner fire has been ignited through Emily’s coaching and I am deeply grateful!

    I reached out to Stephane in a crisis mode after being recommended by a friend. It was a dire situation and Stephane immediately helped me calm down, made me feel at ease. Ever since that first call, it has been an eye opening experience in learning about myself, working through my issues all through the exercises that Stephane has provided. To begin with, he is very personable, genuinely interested in your situation, takes time to really understand it, gets to the bottom of it, and try to sort it from there. He is someone you will instantly feel like trusting. The fact that he has so much experience in dealing with personal and professional cases helps in him understanding your case better than you yourself would. Everyone should have a coach like Stephane regardless of whether one is going through a tough time in life or not. The other great thing about him is that he is not someone who will stop you right at the end of your time limit and say we agreed upon 1 hour and the time is up. He will complete the conversation, ask you if there's anything more you need help with (every single time) and provide that help if necessary even after your session is complete. He is also very responsive when it comes to messages. His short sessions are a life saver when you need to get in touch with him outside of scheduled sessions. The flexibility, the genuineness, the personable experience, the trust factor all make him a wonderful life coach. Be it a relationship issue or a career issue, he has the knowledge and experience to provide you with solutions through exercises that create wonders. I would highly recommend his service. Oh and you don't need to be local to avail his service. I myself am in Chicago and all my sessions have been via phone and he still "gets it" without seeing me in person. A genuine life coach/counselor for all personal and professional issues. Highly recommend!

    I found my sessions with Vasi to be a powerful and positive experience. Though I came to the initial session confused and somewhat discouraged, I left feeling inspired to move forward. I had been in a stage of not knowing what was to be my next chapter for my life and career, and other efforts hadn't helped me in gaining the needed clarity and motivation. Being able to have the added input from the numerological perspective added a great deal of value but what I found most valuable, was when that perspective was combined with Vasi's intuitive guidance. Her attentiveness and insightfulness guided me to contemplation where I discovered my answers and left the session with clarity and fresh energy to take steps forward. I've found Vasi to be an incredibly talented intuitive who is able to hear you at all levels. And because she is able to do that, she creates a space for you to dig deep and ask the deeper questions of yourself that inspire you to move forward.

    After my first session with C.M. I felt a deep sense of clarity about my choice of profession, and gained insight into my relationship with my deceased father. Ever since then I have a new appreciation for the type of work I do. I also have an entirely new attitude which has opened doors in my career and relationships. My work with C.M. has helped me enjoy my work in a new way, and enjoy my life as it unfolds. Thank you, C.M. for your help during our sessions.

    The root of our suffering is merely a lack of understanding. When we don't know, our mind fills in the gaps, and often fearfully. The perspectives I bring quickly help people because I act as a light in an otherwise dark room, and you can see everything more clearly. In one session I can alleviate most problems, then it's quickly on to Thriving, not just surviving!!

    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.
