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!

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!

If you want sustainable results, you want Victoria! I've been training in Los Angeles for the better part of this decade. I've done classes, personal training, private groups, the whole gambit. Victoria is hands down the best coach I have worked with. Not only are her workouts the most efficient I have experienced--my body began to shred after 2 mere weeks of working with her, she also has deep knowledge of nutrition. That is one thing most every fitness expert I know lacks, the dual knowledge of how to exercise your body and how to feed your body, brain and cells. Not only did I obtain the best physical shape of my life with Victoria, I learned about how to feed myself on a cellular level, AND have developed healthy patterns I adopt into my life even outside of our sessions.

Soraya was awesome. I had a very positive and powerful experience. She helped me with both reiki and life coaching. I went to a reiki healer for the first time about a year ago. I didn't feel much at all during or after the session. About 6 months later I was in LA and a friend referred me to Soraya. She was incredibly warm, loving, kind, patient and extremely intuitive. Soraya sat down with me and we discussed some of the issues I was experiencing. While laying on her massage table she first saged my entire body than she used a pendulum to read my chakras and explained where my blockages were and what could possibly be the cause. She was very accurate and knowledgable. I didn't realize I had so many blocks. During the session I went into a deep mediative state which is rare for me. When I woke up I felt less anxious, more peaceful and calm. This is what was so amazing... I had been recovering from a recent heart surgery and in addition had been struggling severely with a nagging cough for the last several months. I had been to the doctor several times, on different medications but it wasn't going away. It was a very uncomfortable cough that had been keeping me up all night and causing distress. After two reiki sessions with Soraya in the course of one week my cough was completely gone! I couldn't believe it! I noticed that after my sessions with her I had more energy than ever. I felt negative energy that was weighing me down had been released from my body. Soraya is very gifted. She is more than just a healer or a life coach. She really cares deeply and listens to what you have to say. I am now seeing her for life coaching and she has helped me understand myself better and also shift my perspective on all areas of my life. I have become more positive and able to deal with my obstacles in a more empowering way. I'm so glad I found her!

I decided to hire a life coach because I was in a transitional period. I was done with my 9:00-5:00, working freelance jobs, and needed someone to help me take big action towards my dreams. I interviewed a few potential people, but I knew Sami was the coach for me right away. From day one I have loved our conversations. Each session leaves me feeling energized, and ready to conquer all that's ahead of me. Working with Sami has allowed me to get clear on my goals and has pushed me to take action towards my dreams. I am currently building my own business that makes me excited and gives me the freedom I desire. I also have grown in my personal relationships with friends, family and my significant other. Sami has helped me make this reality possible. I am so thankful for her and the awesome encouragement and guidance she has given me. I don't know what my life would look like today if I hadn't hired Sami - and I definitely do not want to find out! Sami is the best kind of cheerleader and should be first on your list if considering hiring a coach.

I received Pedro, my life coach as a gift from the universe. It could have been any coach when I purchased a package of life coaching sessions on ethical deal. But I found THE coach. A coach that throughout a one year process helped me heal the past and find the courage to live my dreams. I wouldn't be where I am today without Pedro coming into my life and am very grateful to Pedro for his guidance and the benefit he brings to peoples lives. If you are looking for positive change in your life I highly recommend Pedro.

I’ll first start by saying that even if you don’t think you need a personal coach, there’s something very refreshing and liberating to open up to someone who’s main purpose is to help you live a better, more fulfilling life. It’s easy to fall into routines in our day to day schedules; Whether it’s eating/exercise habits, relationship mishaps, work redundancy, or just feeling unmotivated. However, it’s important to recognize and give attention to those parts of your life, no matter how large or small they may be. That’s where Emily comes in. I can’t say enough about how helpful she is, how eager she is to help you reach your goals, her professionalism, her genuine love for her job, and her excitement for the people she’s been able to help along the way. 5 stars. :)

This is my first experience with a trainer and I could not have picked a better one. A.J. knows when to push and when to let me set my own pace for my workouts. He is also very involved with my diet and mindset . He is also very reasonably priced by Los Angeles standards. All in all I would highly recommend him for anyone who has a fear of getting started too. I had not really exercised much my entire adult life and he is very patient and knowing of what it takes to get the unmotivated and out of shape person in me to flip the switch and work on it.

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.

The professional advice given me by Deborah Vinall has proved invaluable on many different occasions in my work and ministry with troubled youth and young adults. She demonstrates a keen insight, empathy, and compassion into the complexities of the human experience. Her gentle understanding of the pain and suffering that leads to addictions, cycles of trauma and abuse, balanced with wise goadings towards boundaries and reclaiming ownership of ones life and actions have modeled a beautiful spirit of cooperation and non-judgemental support. Deborah Vinall clearly exudes the maxim of Tamar Counselling Services : "reclaiming wholeness", as she herself creates safe space for persons in any stage of healing to begin their journey towards doing just that!

    As the director of a diverse and expansive professional portfolio that includes events, marketing, communications, fundraising and operations, Sonya demonstrates daily her outstanding ability to successfully manage multiple projects, priorities and operations. Time and organizational management are at her core and she can do both like nobody’s business. She’s a strategic thinker who can switch back and forth between big picture thinking and the many small details. She enjoys coaching, inspiring and mentoring her team and others -- always striving to help them identify and focus on their strengths and desires so that they can develop the tools to optimize their professional and personal lives. I have also been the beneficiary of her wisdom and expertise on numerous occasions, and it has deeply impacted my own business as well. Bottom line: Sonya is amazing, and she fully deserves my highest recommendation.

    I can't speak highly enough of my first Jennifer Experience. I was able to communicate with Jennifer directly and speak with her about what I would say are somewhat "outside the box" needs. Jennifer was able to connect me with one of her wonderful associates who had first hand experience to help. She was caring considerate thoughtful and a great listener. She was very easy to talk too, truthful and honest when speaking of my deficiencies and how to fix them. I am so happy with my initial results, I have already requesting a second meeting. I highly recommend The Jennifer Experience to anybody needing to talk to and be coached about anything. Bryan

    I have been working with Sarah over the last year. She holds a beautiful space for me to be open. She also offers me practices to do which allow me feel more grounded and move into greater self love. I tend to resist doing them but they are really effective. I find her to be honest in her feedback which helps me get out of my own way. I love the way we work life from the “goal line” and the “soul line”. Ultimately, I have found her to be highly effective in processing my material. I would highly suggest her!

    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.
