Megan is totally committed to helping you reach your goals. With her coaching, I was able to completely change my body in less than two months. At first, I needed help with my food choices so I kept a journal and I got daily feedback which was so helpful. Now I know what to do and how to maintain as well. If you are looking for one-on-one attention from someone who cares about your success, I recommend that you check out Every BODY’s Fit. Don't put it off until tomorrow. You will be very happy with the results I'm sure!

Michelle is a awesome life coach. I have had one session with her. In that session we covered a lot. At the end her listening and recapping only what I had said helped me to realize what I had already accomplished and what I can. Since then she has been available and coached me through major business decisions. She has gone over and beyond what I ever expected.

I first heard Julia give a talk at a function and asked if she could coach me about some things I felt stuck about. Because of her life coaching, my life is transforming because of the Julia's style and technique; she has encouraged me to open up and find out what really are my life's desires. I have learned how to put these goals into personal and professional daily actions--I am excited to see how wonderfully my life is unfolding! I highly recommend Julia's warm and knowledgeable life coaching--it has been a game changer for me.

In June of 2014, I was approaching age 50 and I weighted 230lbs. I was constantly being pressured by three close friends to try crossfit. My friends literally dragged me to CPP one day and I've been doing crossfit WOD's ever since that particular day. In four months, I lost 25 pounds and added 5 pounds of muscle. I'm currently weighting 210lbs. Crossfit has been a life changing experience and I'm extremely grateful to my friends for helping get in shape. There's also a very good group of coaches & members who constantly motivate you to complete the WOD's. Much thanks again to everyone at CPP!

I have had 2 appointments and I can genuinely say it has helped tremendously already. I had tried a life coach in the past and it really was just a waste of time talking and explaining my life....if you want to really change and not just talk and be a victim this is the therapy and the hypnotherapist for you. He is kind and humble and really wants to help people.

    Mira Joleigh is an amazing, insightful life coach! Our call this past week was so enlightening for me -- I felt that working through the pre-call homework assignment together was a great way to check in with myself, my goals, and what's next in the pipeline to focus on. She provided a myriad of resources to tap into - from networking to credit hacks - and was incredibly easy to talk to. I feel so empowered to take on the next 30 days with the actionable steps we laid out together, and I'm feeling refreshed and looking forward to the future! Thank you, Mira, for sharing space with me and guiding me through my goals! What a way to kick off my birthday week.

    Verified review

    I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.

    Allyson is working with our college-bound daughter as a life coach, guiding her through inventories, exercises and personal life strategies to help her prepare for the challenges that lie ahead, as well as tackle current struggles including anxiety. Allyson is incredibly encouraging and nurturing. She uses relevant, yet wise methodology that is tailored to my daughter's needs and learning style.

    "When I met Corry I was struggling due to recent negative, life changing events in my life. I was alive but not really living. All of my relationships were suffering. I was completely out of balance in my mind and in my body. In just three coaching sessions, Corry helped my build my confidence back up and take charge of my life. She is nurturing, caring, and firm. She has a way about her that makes you feel safe and comfortable instantly, and I found myself able to open up to her and tell her things that I hadn't told anyone else. Thanks to Corry, I feel empowered and my future has never looked so BRIGHT!" Jenn C. Carlsbad, CA

    Jake has coached me for the past 4 years and mentored me as a coach the past 2. Jake has changed my life as an athlete, coach, individual and as a mother. When I first met Jake I was facing back surgery, in time he helped me to recover, rehab and to achieve things in this sport I thought unimaginable. His knowledge & passion about triathlon, nutrition, mental strengthening is second to none. Jake has also coached my son teaching him to ride a bike, and with his swim & run technique. You will not find a more humble, passionate, knowledgeable, giving and supportive coach/person. Thank you

      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!

      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

      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 it cost to hire a career coach?

      A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.

      How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

      When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

      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.
