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.

Lois is a wonderful tutor. As soon as she heard me talking she knew exactly what was it that I needed to train my English in order to take it to the next level. Highly recommendable to those who have an advanced level of English, because she is really precise and you get to learn a lot of history on the language. It is very enjoyable and it makes sense. If you need ESL, she's the one! She is also a writer, producer and acting coach, therefore she's also super creative and helpful when it comes to having to work out some text.

I came to Loocidity looking to improve my resume so I would get more traction with hiring managers. Instead of a quick glance and some brief recommendations for improvement, I got a coach who took the time to get to know me, my strengths and weaknesses, taught me how to cater a resume to a specific job, and guided me through every step of the interview process. The coaching methodology isn't quick, but it's thorough, straightforward, and priced to get the job done rather than to count the minutes on the clock.

    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’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. :)

She's very open and honest and has a really positive way of looking at things - and her positivity is contagious. She got me through a really rough time and gave me advice that I know I'll be applying to challenges I face in the future. Thank you, Allyson!

    Coach Gabrielle was amazing!!! This was my first time receiving life coaching so I did not really know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised, however. She was extremely helpful not only by providing me with valuable advice and insight but her kindness, genuineness, & warmth was more than I could ask for. I am so thankful for her support and encouragement when I felt I had no where else to go. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a life/career coach or counselor or anyone who feels “stuck” like I was. I’m so glad I made the leap! Thank you so much Coach Gabrielle!!!

    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

    • I have been to several therapists in the past and am usually very skeptical of life coaching and therapy When I began phone sessions with Grace, she was able to help me discover what was really at the bottom of my concerns and how I viewed the world. She gave me guidance to start me on a journey of self introspection. Grace very quickly helped me feel that the road to self-development and happiness is a rewarding one in which I have a trustworthy ally. She helped me understand my needs for stability, become successful in my home and personal life and I have become a stronger person because of her. I highly recommend Grace.

      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!

      Eva was so helpful in my life. Sometimes even just validation that you’re not the only one going through something is what you want. With Eva, you get so much more than that. She had the experience and tools to help me actually discover the answers I was seeking on my own. Life coaching has been way more helpful to me than some therapy that I’ve tried that have dug too deep into my past. Eva helped me understand what’s happening now so I could create the future I wanted. I can’t thank her enough!

        I came to Michelle needed some clarity around my academic life. I felt stuck in an unpleasant situation and I wasn’t sure what to do about getting myself out of that messy situation. I felt anxious and confused for days and finally I took my first step on contacting Michelle. She really took her time to listen to my problems and issues I had and She helped me identified my personal goals within that whole chaos. She reminded me of what I have been wanted to do and shifted my tunnel vision to look at different possibilities. Given that life is so complicated on so many levels, Michelle is definitively a great partner to have on this life journey. Michelle is very warm and caring. She’s also very supportive of all my emotions and I felt that I could trust her walking side by side with me on getting me back on track and heading to the direction where I intended to be. Choosing a good life coach can be really intimidating experience, but I am glad that I have found Michelle. She’s truly an inspiration to me and not to mention her professionalism as a life coach. I only have many good things to say about the service she had provided to me.

          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

          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.

          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.

          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.
