I've been working out with John for over 3 years, and he has transformed my body. He helped me lose about 13 pounds before my wedding. He's more than just a personal trainer - he's a life and health coach as well. I know if I have any questions about health or what I should be eating, I can always send him a note, and he'll respond. Every workout we do is always different. He keeps things interesting, and I always leave feeling good/sore. John is the best!

Sean is an amazing healer, life coach, therapist, and body talk expert. He was able to bring peace to some old emotional wounds that I hadn’t thought about or even realized were still there. I went to him because I felt “stuck” and was searching for advice on my life purpose. After just two months of sessions, I already felt much healing and therefore more joy than ever in my daily life and am also able to express myself better and see more clearly changes to make to encourage my happiness and growth so that I may pursue my dreams being more in the flow and in the spirit of love.

Deb is an amazing life coach. My husband and I truly feel she is an asset to our relationship. She is a great listener and is nonjudgmental. I feel she comes from a place of love. She helps us see things about ourselves we might not have, if we didn't have her in our lives. Whenever she leaves I feel I have gained so much by our time together, that would have otherwise got ignored, not talked about, or buried. She is sweet, sincere, relaxed and full of great insight. We are so blessed to have her in our life! Thanks, J and I

Immediate healing in tumors in lower abdomen ( one was like a mid size grapefruit, and the other one was like a golf-ball size). They disappered same day, after session. WOW! My pain was gone right away, and still gone in lower abdomen. Immediate healing in car-sickness, mental ballancing (before I used to switch over numbers, when I was writing). My stress, fears, and angers were gone. I feel more relief, and still feel it.I can focus more, I feel calm, and in peace. And still feel that way. She ballanced my energy field, body field, emotional field, spiritual body field. She lifted that burden, what was pushing me down. I feel so healthy, so alive. She healed my hip-joint, before it was dislocated two times. Now feel so strong. No pain, and no discomfort in my knees. No pain in my shoulders. Feel so much love. My digestion so much better. I can eat spicy food. She is the best! I am so blessed to know her. She saved my health and my life for sure. Thank you, Beloved Jacquie

Melissa's enthusiasm and positivity is infectious and present in everything she brings to the table. She's helped me question and think deeply about what I truly want in life, in both my career and my well being. She's pushed me outside of my comfort zone, and I've grown immensely. I highly recommend Melissa for anyone who is at a crossroads about their future!

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.

I am so grateful to have Nicole as a mentor and a guiding light. Her coaching style blends her hands-on professional experience with sincerity. Nicole understands people and dynamics quickly and does so through listening. She practices active listening. You will do most of the talking, and she will bring it all together, usually by asking a question. The ah-ha moment! She doesn't dwell on weaknesses, but focuses on strengths. On a professional level, she has helped me navigate through the ranks and carve out a role that fit my skillsets and lifestyle. I've also looked to her for advice when presented with new career opportunities. Based on my experience, I cannot recommend Nicole's services enough. Every mid-level professional deserves an advocate like Nicole.

Pete has been my trainer for over 5 years. I started with Pete because I was losing the motivation to workout because I wasn't seeing results from my​ efforts. With Pete, I'm in the best shape of my life, and he still encourages me to get stronger. I appreciate that he pushes me to work hard without sacrificing my form. I highly recommend Pete.

I am a mid-career professional seeking to change direction and I couldn’t have ask for a better Career Coach than Dr. Milwid. Dr. Milwid is a skilled guide. She begins by leading you through a self-exploration that helps you understand not only what you’re looking for but also what you have to offer. She then turns tactical and offers extremely helpful and practical guidance for restructuring the primary documents needed for an effective job search: your resume and cover letters. Throughout, Dr. Milwid shares relevant articles and research and brings to bear her decades of experience advising people and her own multi-faceted career. Dr. Milwid is also extremely encouraging and a genuine pleasure to work with. You’ll leave your sessions with Dr. Milwid feeling energized and prepared to embark on a targeted and effective job search. I feel lucky to have worked with her and am confident you’ll feel the same.

Kari is a magician!!! She walked into clutter, and finished leaving everything in its place and easy to find. We also found items that mean a lot to me like jewelry and old coins. You will be so happy you called and let her unclutter your life.

I began working with Tatyana years ago while recovering from a severe break to my sacrum. It had been a few years since the break, but I had tried many different types of treatments and none provided me with any relief and my life had been substantially altered from my life pre-break. The first session got the pain I was feeling in everyday under control, but after that she began to work with me so I am now able to be nearly as active as I was before the injury. I would imagine it would be lovely to work with Tatyana without injury or pain, but her extensive background in healing methodologies, she is the best medicine for recovery.

Claudine Woo is an amazing mentor and career coach. She is intuitive, compassionate, and works with you to establish pragmatic and tangible solutions to help you achieve your professional goals. Claudine has been a constant source of support, and an authentic guiding voice on a career path that has been anything but clear. I recommend Claudine especially if you find yourself balancing multiple passions, and looking for a path that may not be as visible for you as it is for others.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
