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.

About 4 months ago, I decided I wanted coaching because I was going through several changes in my life. I felt overwhelmed by the work, I had no confidence in myself to make any decisions, and anxious about the future. I knew that this was holding me back from many things I wanted in life such as traveling, finding a venue for my wedding, building myself as a martial artist, and finding a fulfilling career. I decided on making the leap to help myself and hire a life coach in hopes to work through all this, accomplish my goals, have more flavor in my life, and love myself. From day one, Fawn has put her heart into her coaching and I cannot begin to explain how much my life has improved since I have met her. I can only speak through my own personal experience into what I was looking for in a coach. Firstly, for me, trust was the most important quality I was looking for - as I felt that I would not make the improvements I needed unless I was honest with my coach and myself. Secondly, I wanted to be with a coach I had a good connection with. Third, I did not want a coach that was pushy when it came to sales. I interviewed with several coaches, and many tried to push me into signing a contract with them. And when I hesitated, they attempted to make me feel bad and that if I didn’t sign up, then I truly did not care about my well being. In reality, it was THEM I didn’t want. Although I understand that this is their career, I just did not like how disrespectfully I was treated. And fourth, I wanted a coach who was well established and had great reviews. This was a strenuous process, but WELL worth the time because at the end of it all, I went with Fawn because after the initial call, I felt that she exuded all of these qualities. And this was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life. Now, four months later, I've seen that Fawn TRULY exemplifies each one of those qualities, at such a superior level while she is also humble, kind, thoughtful, smart, well-traveled, fascinating, resourceful, and the list of her qualities is endless. I can trust her with some of my most intimate ideas and thoughts, while she is understanding and open. When I re read her session notes she sends me, it's clear that she understands the message I am getting across. I also have a strong rapport with her. Very similar to a personal trainer’s relationship with their client – almost anyone can work with any trainer and get in better shape, but when you have a good relationship with your trainer, there is something very special about the mutual trust there, and when the student starts losing weight and getting stronger, the coach is genuinely excited, finds it rewarding, continues to push their client, while the client is trusting them and grateful - and it’s this on going positive relationship of improvement. I feel that this is an important quality in life coaching too, and I certainly feel this with Fawn. Additionally, she didn’t pressure me to sign a contract, at the same time she was honest and professional about moving forward. And when I researched her, I found she had a lot of wonderful reviews, she is well prepared and professional – and she lives up to everything I’ve read about her since I’ve been working with her. Since I’ve been working with her my life has improved significantly. She has provided me with the tools and support to identify WHAT my goals are, WHAT I want, and HOW to get them. Don’t get me wrong… I knew if I wanted to improve from any kind of coaching, I absolutely HAD to put in the work. And Fawn provides me with incredible thought provoking exercises that have really helped me identify what I want and how to get them, along with thought provoking calls. Additionally, when making changes in life, none of those changes felt natural, because they were NEW habits I was forming. Fawn taught me to continue pushing through the discomfort and eventually a lot of the discomfort turned into natural daily habits. And sometimes when I get overwhelmed, I fall back into self doubt and thinking I am incapable of getting the things I want, and Fawn is right there to coach me and help me see that these thoughts are untrue, and to go back to believing in myself and how to plan to get the things I want. So far, since I’ve been working with Fawn, I took 4 cathartic trips (when I was in fear of change, so traveling scared me - even though I knew it would be good for me); Fawn helped me discover my vision for my wedding in Yosemite and I put a deposit down (before I was overwhelmed by all the possibilities, she helped me simplify and meditate on what I wanted); I have improved with my martial arts goals, such as losing 15 pounds and getting my blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu; I have more control over my finances and my credit score has increased; and I have more control over my anxiety. For me, these were some very significant breakthroughs and highlights in my coaching. I know there are many ahead and I have the confidence that I can get there. I could not recommend Fawn more if you are looking to improve your quality of life, and I know that I will continue her coaching throughout my future and positive changes to come!

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.

    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.

    "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

    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. I would not hesitate to recommend Allyson to anyone looking to learn more about themselves, work through areas of struggle, or just regain the joy in everyday life.

    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.

    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

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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.   

    Why get a life coach?

    People of all ages and in all careers have called in a life coach. Life coaches are accredited professionals who can help you figure out the tangible changes you can make in your life to reach your goals; they can even help you turn your dreams into goals, if you’re not sure where to go next. A life coach can also help people find their purpose in life. Life coaching clients often have an idea of what they want to do, such as help people or work with animals, but don’t know how to turn that passion into a career. A life coach can help clients work through the options to find a clear path with concrete steps that lead to an attainable goal. A life coach can also help clients make a major career change, such as starting a new business. Life coaches can help clients develop better habits that will make them more successful, acting as an accountability partner. Life coaches also often guide their clients through major transitions in life, such as a career change or other stressful situations that are made easier with guidance from a neutral third party.
