I was concerned that hiring a life coach would be too costly to help me past anything beyond the earliest stages of my project. But Judy’s coaching services are structured in such a way that I I can engage her not just for helping me with short term goals, but for helping me achieve long term goals as well. That knowledge, paired with Judy’s skilled and insightful guidance, has allowed me to finally trade the paralyzing sense of being overwhelmed with the clarity of having concrete, achievable goals. Judy’s particular intelligence makes her an invaluable coach for anyone who is undertaking a sprawling, intellectually intimidating, creative endeavor.

Tom has the unique ability to provide Heath coaching and life coaching. This prompted me to return to him after 12 months away. He is very prompt, very in tune with my needs, and look forward to teaming with him to make great strides this year.

Having met Dr. Anna is one of the best things that's ever happened to me. I had been in therapy for over a decade with various counselors, but now I know the difference between a therapist and a Therapist. She is warm, compassionate and creative, no two sessions are the same, and she seems to have an incredible repertoire of techniques at her disposal. She is always goal-oriented, makes sure that results are really happening, and always explains everything so clearly as you have never heard and never understood before. She has the greatest sense of humor, her academic knowledge is amazing, and her fine-tuned sensitivity boarders on the mystical. Yet she is always funny, down to earth, and real. I've never laughed so much in therapy sessions before! :-) I am so grateful, ... because I am finally discovering what "free" and "happy" really mean!

I started with Tommy in December but didn't try his alkaline vegan diet till January. I'm not a true vegan like him but I'm trying the best I can. I lost 14 pounds since I started with Tommy and he has taught me so much about food and what it does to your body. I recommend his service (coaching & training) cause it goes hand in hand.

After struggling for several months with internal issues like many of us, I decided to reach out for that extra help and push I needed. Hence why I chose Gabriella to be my life coach :) Unfortunately, I was one who could never acknowledge that I, myself, mattered just as much as everyone else and was a very passive aggressive girl. Allowing myself to continue being passive with conflicts and obstacles that I encountered I began building and bottling a lot of anger and felt the love I had for myself begin to diminish, but after I began to converse and work with Gabriella she really helped open my eyes and my voice. She is so easy to talk to but still helps dig deep to the core of ourselves where we can find the willpower within us to use as a daily tool in life. Gabriella is extraordinary, she connected with me so well and still helped me figure out how to balance certain aspects in my life whether it was from dealing with boyfriend issues to finding ways to do something FOR MYSELF. I have learned so much about getting along with life and being happy and loving with myself. I have learned that we all deserve to voice our emotions, we are equal and have the willpower to do better for ourselves in every way. Gabriella was the perfect guidance into starting to approach life in a more positive and healthy way. She truly is an amazing mentor, a very brilliant life coach, and a great friend. I will forever be thankful to have found her support.

Lisa is extremely skillful and caring. She assisted me in letting go of life long family issues that were dragging me down and keeping me from recognizing that I deserve happiness. She helped me get rid of my lifelong belief that I'm not good enough as I am. She helped me get rid of my fear that the world is in an inevitable downward spiral of disarray and doom. And she helped me flush a very disturbing toxic business contact and neighbor/friend who both turned against me after I got close to them. All of this change was accomplished in 4 visits. My last visit was 9 months ago and the results have been permanent.

I've taken pole dancing classes, personal coaching, and teacher training at various times throughout the years starting in 2011. I've found every aspect working with Ro a safe and nurturing environment. She sees the best in you and encourages you to strive for this level. I always left her classes or training feeling better about myself, which is an invaluable trait in today's society.

After working with James Wightman, I went from being on the verge of homelessness to making $2,300 in 3 days. James helped me heal deep wounds from my past that were causing me to experience an emotional and financial breakdown. Using his coaching techniques, James helped me release the shame of my past and move through previously debilitating trauma memories. Thanks, James, for being a phenomenal coach!

During the six weeks that I worked with Melissa, she was a constant sounding board, making herself available whenever I had questions or needed motivation. She provided ongoing inspiration and really tapped into the issues specific to my current lifestyle. I've struggled with my weight for the better part of my life, and Melissa was the first person I've encountered who cut through all the noise from the fad diets I'd looked to as an answer in the past. She helped me find what worked for me, and provided tools I'll continue using into the future, for not only myself, but for my family. I'd highly recommend Melissa as a Health Coach to anyone who wants to feel better about their life. Amazing!

Victoria, is quite a talent! My wife and I met with her for about 45 minutes and she presented me with a handout script for me to read out loud and then critique me over and over again until I improved somewhat, as it’s still a work in progress but I think she’s well worth the money.

My experience with the Mcknight Coaching Lab was extremely satisfactory. David has helped me be more confident and assertive, not just in my career, but also in my personal life. He taught me the skills to go after the things I want in life. It was after he helped me revamp my resume that I got a call to interview for my last position. Even when I got discouraged while looking for an apartment, it was David who encouraged me and gave me the determination not to give up, and the next day I found one. David is able to give the needed encouragement and support, yet not get overly involved in your personal life. He is always extremely professional, while being warm and personable......David himself also has an impressive resume, being employed by fortune 500 companies, and educated by top universities......

Whether teaching or coaching, Angelique Mercurio clearly demonstrates a seasoned level of knowledge and experience and a passion for what she does.

Stefanie is a life saver, not just your coach or counselor. She helped me through the longest, hardest stretch of my life and I came out on the other end a full version of me with realized dreams and a long list of successes... and I couldn’t have done it without Stefanie of Risk Productions & Media. Her experience is insurmountable. I originally went to Stefanie for her spiritual counseling as I was having issues with my career, finances, grief & relationship problems. Years later I decided to start my own company and I knew who to go to. Stefanie of Risk Productions & Media is a huge asset to have for your company or for your personal life. -MR

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.
