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've always cared about expanding my english vocabulary and grammatical skills. I find it comes in quite useful for a professional career. The assistance I received gave me the confidence to excel in my professional and personal life. Lois has expanded my knowledge of the english language and I would recommend her to anyone seeking assistance or just looking to expand their knowledge of the english language.

If you're like me, you're reading this wondering if you should take the plunge. While each situation is unique, I gotta say... DO IT! If you have the means and could use guidance in any aspect of your life, absolutely dive in. Fawn is incredible. I've been working with her for over a month now and I've seen so many significant changes in my life, changes that wouldn't have been possible without Fawn's support and knowledge. I contacted Fawn when I decided I needed a more hands on approach to improving my outlook and my habits. What I've achieved in my short time with her is far greater than I ever expected. I come away from our sessions more positive, more motivated, and refreshed. Her meticulous handling of each session, her ability to listen with an intent to understand, her check-ins, and her resource sharing is so intuitive. She knows because she's been there. Her scheduling system is wonderfully easy, which is especially helpful when dealing with different time zones. She utilizes Google Docs for session notes, which I love! I can carry my progress in my pocket. Fawn does an amazing job laying out a path at the beginning of coaching, but she also knows when to make adjustments. Much like life, you can only prepare so much before you have to simply run with what you've been given. I love that each conversation feels like catching up with a wise friend I've known for years, all while aspects of my goals are starting to fall into place. I'm incorporating her suggested action items in a way I've never been able to do before: effortlessly and optimistically. I'm gushing, but so what? One thing we touch on so often--and for good reason--is gratitude. I'm so grateful to have found Fawn and I can't wait to see where the remainder of our sessions lead.

Sean was very helpful and totally professional. His office environment was very relaxed. I needed help developing my resumé, and especially conveying my professional attributes and not just work experience. Sean provided extra help after our sessions via email in the evenings and over the weekend. I'm extremely satisfied with Sean's services and will probably return, and I'd recommend him to anyone needing resumé and career advice. Thanks Sean!

    Before I worked with Jon, I felt unsure about how I wanted to proceed in my career. We explored different options I had been thinking about. After working with Jon I felt better about what my next course of action was going to be in regards to achieving my goals. He helped me gain some clarity into what I really wanted. He also gave me some great tips to build my confidence and offered some great ideas on how to achieve great things.

    When I first spoke to Mira, I was in a really low place regarding my confidence and my career. She gave me the courage, plan, space, accountability, and motivation I needed to help me quit my job, start my own freelance business, and begin applying for a graduate degree, all without my falling apart in a sea of tears over monotonous tasks, overwhelming to do lists, and general anxiety. Mira has an amazing, calming presence, and she did a great job of making space for me to articulate my goals, vent (when needed) without veering too far off track, and isolate concrete actions I could take to move forward. We also did some mindset work together that has helped me so much on a day to day basis. Highly recommend Mira if you are a creative soul who needs a little help & guidance to begin systematically chasing your goals and dreams!

    Emily has such a great and comforting personality. When I meet with her, I feel like I’m really being heard, no matter what tangents I go on. Most importantly, she’s patient and allows time for me to work through my thoughts. I’ve referred friends over to her, and they have raved about her as well. Choose Emily to help guide you in your career or other parts of your life. You will be very happy you did!

    For career minded individuals Emma offers a compelling mix of openness, strong listening and understanding skills, with proven business acumen; in short she understands the world you are operating in. Furthermore, Emma has a lovely way of getting to the heart of this issue (root rather than the symptoms) and keeping you focused on reaching your potential with a strong action plan. I highly recommend working with Emma.

    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.

    After working with Dana, I am pursuing a career that fits me perfectly by following a plan we created together. One of the things that surprised me most about working with Dana was that she allowed me to discover what career options were even possible. When I first started working with Dana, I was kind of directionless in where my life was headed. I had a kind of idea of what I wanted to pursue and was passively working towards that goal but I knew I lacked passion. Once Dana and I worked together a little more, she made me get real honest with myself about what I actually wanted out of life and for the first time in my life, pursue a career that actually fit me. Once I had actually settled on a career choice, we collaborated on a plan to make that choice a reality for me. I highly recommend working with Dana if you aren't sure what kind of life you want, or if you do know what you want, she will guide you on how to achieve it.

      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!

        Goddess Ashtoreth has been my life coach for over 4 years and I am very grateful for her. I look back at the me when we first met and who I am today, the transformation is incredible! She is very patient, understanding and honest. She makes you take a good look at yourself, good and bad. She makes you accountable for you and your actions. With her, you touch on so many aspects of who you are and life. It’s about mind, body and spirit with her. It’s about recognizing, acknowledging and embracing the wounds that lie dormant deep within. She helps you get in touch with these wounds and then the healing process begins. She calls this process “The Onion Peel”. At first I did not quite understand what she meant, but as you start the process it makes complete sense. One layer at a time. You have to peel back one layer in order to get to the next layer. She is so patient about it. She understands that everyone has to go at his or her own pace. With her patience, it helps the individual evolve and transform. This is what she truly wants for each individual. It’s not about her; it is truly about wanting you to become the best version of you. You feel this from her. You feel the love from her. With working with her you evolve in some many areas in your life. Be career, relationship, finances, etc. It’s all connected. You have to be healthy in all areas in order to achieve your greatness. When you work with Ashtoreth it’s about complete self. She helps you see you and find you. Again, I am so grateful for her. Without her I am not sure where I would be with self and life.

          Natasha is the unexpected breath of fresh air that anyone can benefit from. I was recommended to Natasha by my rhuemetologist after being diagnosed with fibromygia and a plethora of other ailments. I wasn't sure what to expect, so I entered the door with an open mind and a commitment to follow through with the sessions. Sessions include explanations of treatments, and guidance for what I'm going through. We talk a lot too. I'm very analytical and have a science background, so I want to understand everything that's going on. Natasha gets that and is very patient. In order to explain complex ideas in simple terms, one must have a thorough understanding of the topic. Natasha demonstrates her expertise in word and action. While there is physical healing involved, it seems more like a byproduct of the energy work. Instead of medicating the symptoms, Natasha gets to the root of problem through energy healing (detaching the negative energies and promoting the positive energies). Clearly, I don't understand it all yet. I'm still a noob! :) Check out the website or Facebook for info. I spent thousands of dollars and countless hours in the past few years with medications, the best specialists is SoCal, MRIs, and enough blood work to leave a constant needle prick in my arm. In the past couple months I've (slowly and carefully) stopped taking meds for asthma, thyroid, and allergies. My immunologist said I'm healthier than I've been in years! People around me are treating me differently (in a good way). My perspective is changing from the inside out in ways that I can't yet find the words to describe. In short, calling Natasha is the first step in an epic adventure of cleansing, healing, and love.

            Jessie has played an integral role in shaping my career and quickly became the older sister I always hoped for and wanted. She is one of the most loving and generous people I have ever met - always happy and willing to give her time and energy to those who need it. Jessie truly has a passion for helping others and is always doing what she can to uplift those around her each and every day. Inspiring and empowering both men and women to follow their dreams is what she was put on this earth to do. Over the years Jessie has been there to always cheer me on and guide me through life's crazy twists and turns. I am so grateful for the wisdom she has bestowed upon me. She has helped me so much professionally, but I am most grateful for what she has done for me personally. She has always reflected back to me the person I hope to be, and as a result I can say that she has taught me to truly love myself. Having Jessie as my mentor has been one of my greatest blessings. She is a remarkable human being. These words simply do not do justice to what an incredible mentor she is. Jessie has forever changed my life, and I know if you let her - she will do the same for 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.

              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

              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 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.
