The first day I met Lea I knew I wanted her to be my life coach. The funny part is that she was not one then but luckily she is now! She has helped me focus on what is important in my life and dismiss those that would work to derail my gifts. I wholeheartedly recommend this amazing woman.

Julianne is really sweet! After meeting up with her she went over a variety of different foods that I could eat to get a healthier diet. I was really happy to have her coach me and suggest different options. She is really great and will do whatever it takes to see you succeed and have a healthy life. You get what you put in and what you ask for. Julianne is super understanding and willing to help, the first step is asking for it. She is a great person to have on your team! I am really happy I had the chance to meet her and have her help me make life changing decisions.

I spoke with Velina on Skype about the challenges I'm dealing with in my life and she was really helpful. I highly recommend her to anyone having difficulties or needing a good coach in their life. She seems to know a lot and has a lot of experience helping people with all kinds of issues. For me, I really felt like she cared deeply for me and understood me like a close friend and yet is very professional. She is warm and kind. I'm so glad I found her. She helped me so much.

Adam is everything you want in a meditation coach. He is a warm, generous spirit. He is funny (hysterical really). He is impressively smart and knowledgeable. It is obvious when working with him or simply talking to him that he was studied diligently, put in years of hard word, learning about and practicing various contemplative traditions. He has lived in monasteries for years, and brings this background to his work. He will impress you in this way. However, it is his humility that you will feel when your session is over. As Maya Angelou said, "...people will never forget how you made them feel." Adam makes you feel welcomed, supported and inspired. I am grateful for his assistance in helping me establish a meditation practice (no small feat). But I am more grateful for our sessions together and the wisdom he's brought to my life. There are more pockets of peace and calm in my life, more places of dignity, less anxiety - little by little, more happiness.

      I have been working with Sarah to really push myself in ways I wasn’t able to on my own. The result so far has been incredible! I was hesitant to try coaching at first, but it has been so refreshing and helpful to get passed road blocks I didn't even know existed! I cannot say enough good things about her.

      Ken Karnack, owner of Old School Fitness, has been my online coach since March 2011. I am 43 and up until I was 30 I was in incredible shape. At 30 I got married, had kids and I forgot about me. I ballooned up to 280 lbs from 220 with a 29" waste. I did the weight loss diets, doctors etc for years. I started looking for help 10 years ago. I started having health concerns. Vision loss from phentermine diets, blood pressure over 153/110 and just plain out felt like I was dying a slow death. Being a former athlete and knowing what I was capable of made it worse. I came across Ken and what he has done at his age and said I could do that. So I contacted and determined to make a change. Ken has knowledge and experience and knows how to fix me. In my words I am broken. Quitting is easy but Ken keeps me on course and is more than a fitness and diet guru. He listens when I want to quit and throw the towel in. I am 249 now and stronger than I have been in years. For the first time I know I found the answer and it was not a tv show or fad diet. It was Ken Karnack!! In the end it will be because of him I will be able to say I am in the best shape of my life and healthy again. We are going to 220 lbs. This is a journey and Ken my navigator. I trusted him with my life and he is making it possible for me to set a positive example for my kids that they can do anything and how to stay healthy. My 13 year old son was fat when I started this. He watched me and he started to care about himself. He is lean right now and happy. So Ken has helped me in many ways and continues to. I cannot tell you what he has meant to me and my family!

          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.

          Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
