Verified review

Gabriella's knowledge and experience as a life coach are surpassed only by her creativity as she makes it fun and easy to make her lessons meaningful and applicable in our daily lives. For me saying out loud to someone, this is what I want to do, started the process. Knowing that I had to be accountable motivated me. Gabriella suggested I set my goals incrementally; this is something I would have not done myself. As a result of this, I attained my goals and feel better about myself. Clearly, her enthusiasm is a testament to her commitment to helping others make healthier lifestyle changes.

I’ve never had someone that cared so much about me as a whole. It wasn’t just therapy for her. Her dedication and passion helped me get through the roughest times in life. I don’t think I’ll ever find another therapist as wonderful in my life.

I had the best day of my 43 year long life! Lisa guided me through such enlightenment about the light I have inside of me and I was able to realize the power of what I have within. I have been paralyzed by a severe phobia for most of my life, and I now know I have the strength to live a whole new, healthy, happy, phobia free life. This was the best thing that has ever happened to me. Thank you Lisa for your expertise and for helping me realize I could take on every day for the rest of my life. I look forward to all the happy days ahead. Thank you so very much for making such an impact on the quality of my life as a woman, mother, teacher and friend. You are a true gift to our world.

James is incredible. He's a powerful force that'll challenge you (in a loving way) to move towards the life of your dreams. He's helped me make more money (a few hundred more a month) doing what I love. He's helped me see my worth and value myself more - and I've been extra proactive on growing my business. He's inspired me to take care of my body more, and because of that I feel healthier and stronger than I have in months. I highly recommend him as a Life Coach to anyone -- he'll get you where you want to go - and fast!

If you are looking to learn a healthier lifestyle and work toward being the best you that you can be, Melissa will help you in that direction! Melissa is the most dedicated nutritionist and healthy living coach. She has turned her expertise into an awesome support for those who are looking to make life long healthy choices with nutrition. I learned a great deal of tips and tricks, and the science behind what my body needs. She makes it fun, empowering, and is incredibly motivating! She continually checks in on me and supports me with her infectious positive energy and genuine support. She truly cares about your success. I would absolutely recommend Melissa as your health and well-being coach. She makes it simple and easy to follow, but most importantly empowers her clients to take risks, try new things, and make continually steps in a healthier and positive direction.

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.

David is by far not your ordinary image consultant! His expertise, knowledge, and sense of style aims to set you up for success both professionally and personally. He brings the best out of you (externally) by understanding and exposing what is within you (internally). In other words, your revamped image is based on your personality. This builds and creates "true" image, and individual style and stamina for the long-term! Not only that, he goes over and beyond by providing you positive feedback as a mentor and life coach. At the end of the day, thanks David - I nailed that interview! :-) You are the real deal!

I have worked with Angelique Mercurio as her student and very much appreciate her deep knowledge and sincere integrity. She has an innate ability to meet you where you are and communicate effectively and productively. Working with her is easy yet challenging because she operates from a place of authenticity and no personal agenda. Whether teaching or coaching, Angelique Mercurio clearly demonstrates a seasoned level of knowledge and experience and a passion for what she does. Her understanding of Emotional Intelligence and coaching in general has helped to propel her into being a credible force and expert in this area.

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

My body looked incredible after just a few sessions working with John. I tend to be lazy about working out but John kept me motivated and made sure that I was challenging myself enough to get the results without getting injured. I even saw ab definition for the first time in my life! I would definitely recommend personal training with John.

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.
