I don't even know where to begin. Prior to meeting Michelle, I had no idea what a life coach was. All I knew was that I was stuck and I needed a bit more guidance in my life and that's when my cousin recommended her to me. Michelle is beyond amazing. When I first met her she gave me her book and her workbook. These tools, along with her, helped me through my whole process. I was able to self reflect more and change my way of thinking. She's helped me have courage to do some of the scariest things I could never imagine myself doing. She's helped better direct my life to where I want to go and open to my eyes to my own truths. She has a passsion for what she does and it truly shows in her work. There's never any judgment and she's able to share her toughest experiences . Michelle has an amazing heart and only has the best intentions. I admire her strength the most. I'm extremely grateful for her guidance and highly recommend her as a life coach.

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 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.

Training with Branden was a great experience. He made me do many exercises from bear crawls, push ups, mountain climbers, jump squats, to what ever he can push me to do. I never really did weight training til I worked out with him. He pushed me to a limit I never knew I could reach. He genuinely cares for his clients and believes in you when you don't believe in yourself and that's is a quality that makes him the best! So if your looking for an outstanding life coach/trainer BRANDEN NICHOLSON is your man!!!

I've been training under Ticia's guidance for two years. During that time she has trained me with a variety of moves which keeps my body challenged. The workouts have included; plyometrics, cardio such as hiking, kettle ball workouts, free weights, weight machines, running hills & stairs and body weight excercises. Ticia has created meal plans and inspired me to learn meditation. She is basically my life coach, trainer, therapist and friend. Someone who can in one way or another relate to my life needs and goals.

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.
