I first meet John Bruno when I was a junior in college. He was the martial arts and strength and conditioning coach at the time. He is very knowledgeable about both subjects. Part of earning his respect is remembering that if you ask him to teach you, you are the ignorant one so listen and try to do what he says. He can seem pushy at times but he does care about those he teaches. If he hadn't pushed me I would've never exceeded my own expectations. In some ways I think he may have believed in me more than I did in myself and for that I am thankful.

Meridith is SO very bright. She takes you through a journey that leads you to unexpected answers and self discovery. You are left more uplifted, confident, a true pilgrim of the world ahead. She helped me love myself more and helped me brainstorm what was getting in my way. She also provided daily tools to assist in growth and self knowledge. She is worth every penny. Also, her personal story is so inspiring. Highly recommend her.

Sarah's personality assessment is genius! She hit things right on the nail regarding how me and my partner think based on our personality types. Because Sarah understood how we process information, she was able to explain things in a way we understood- for example my partner is very open about religion/spirituality, therefore Sarah made sure to quote scriptures that related to whatever point she was trying to get across. I appreciated Sarah's availability outside of scheduled sessions. I also want to thank the people in the background-her family. I'm not sure how many clients Sarah has but it takes an unselfish family to allow her to be on call, so please share my appreciation for them as well. This was my first time turning to a relationship coach and overall it was a much needed experience that I would do all over again if I had to.

Nichole M (Proud USMC Wife) said... I have known Jihan for several years. We initially met at work and quickly became friends. Even though she is only a couple years older then me, I look up to her and feel like she is not just a friend, she is an amazing person! She has the best advice and outlook on absolutely any topic you can throw her way. She is understanding and forgiving and kind. I can't say enough good things about her. Even though she has officially booked her second client, I would say she has had impact on hundreds of people and has been a life coach all along! I love you girl and so lucky to know you! You have absolutely helped me more then I could ever explain!

I have been searching for a while to find the right coach that fits what I have been looking for. I feel lucky to have found Ave. She is extremely knowledgeable, straight forward, and has a vivacious personality. She holds you accountable on your workout journey, not just on the days she sees you. When you are her client, she is right there next to you along your journey, encouraging you the whole way through. Ave is an amazing personal trainer and I would recommend her to anyone.

I had my first soul session with Kristin and I wasn’t sure what to expect going into it, but she was great at explaining the process which put me at ease. I had gone through a divorce that left me feeling broken and empty and I was still having trouble dealing with the aftermath. Through our multiple sessions, I discovered things about myself and realized that I needed to change some things in my life. Kristin helped coach me to make the changes I wanted to make so I could start this new life for myself. It was nice to have guidance and someone to talk to as I was making these changes. I slowly began to feel my heart and soul healing and was able to let go of all the emotions that come with a divorce. Being able to have someone help you during a rough time is priceless and I am so grateful that I was able to have a soul session during this time in my life because it completely changed my life.

Rob Whalley has been my Life Coach for many years. We have used his book IN LIFE SCHOOL as a guide and workbook. As a result I have benefited in a life changing way physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

I am now a much happier and productive person. Rob has also been an inspiration spiritually with his strong belief in God. Together we have explored ancient truth and wisdom as it pertains to my personal belief system and this has brought the peace for which I have been searching. Rob has helped me to change, grow, prosper and reach my life goals which has empowered me to live a better life today. With Rob's affordable, easy to get started and understand "Life Coaching Package," everyone can benefit from the wisdom and knowledge needed to achieve their life goals.

Tania has been coaching me for 3, maybe 4 years now for my time management, relationships, stress and anger management. Tania works with you so you can understand how to go through the motions. She will no do any work for you , but what she will do is hold you accountable for your actions. She is a blessing in disguise. She can give you tough love when you need it but she has a nurturing personality. She also works out payment plans as well. God only knows I needed it at the time. It's good to have someone on your side that works with you. She does take her time to get to know you so you're not another paycheck to her. She genuinely cares.

I am incredibly grateful to have worked with Chandra on a personal and professional level for over 10 years. What impresses me about Chandra is that she doesn't just talk the talk- she walks the walk. I've learned that if I'm willing to really listen, to do what I say that I'm going do, and to finish what I've started, that I can create the life I want.

Miranda is so knowledgeable, sincere and genuinely kind. She sees the potential in me, when sometimes I only see challenges. She encourages me to try something I am ‘sure’ I cannot do, or asks that I ‘try again’ when I’m unsure. She also recognizes when I’m having a hard day and I need more mindful practice than physical. I am so fortunate to have Miranda as my teacher. She adapts my practice to promote my strengths, and has help me to become flexible and strong. She has taught me so much! I cannot say enough great things about my experiences with Miranda and I absolutely recommend and encourage others - if you are looking for a great teacher, mentor and coach- you are in the right place!

My past experiences are working with children, adult, and the elderly population. I am working with people who are looking for behavioral changes.

I help clients to articulate their desires while remaining focused to reach your own individual goals and developing a plan of action.You will learn to develop your own strategies to overcome road blocks, identify and eliminate limiting beliefs while being accountable to your dreams.

About

At some point when you were a child, you knew what you wanted to be when you grew up. You played for hours doing things that you loved. Now, you are all grown up, and life is not quite the same. You have some unanswered questions: What do I do with my life? What is my passion? Why am I not fulfilled? How do I find my dream job? Well, I am here to tell you that those things that you wanted as a child really are the key to your dreams and is the most important starting place to finding the answers to these questions. If you have some of these or similar questions, then you are in the right place. You may feel you want more, or you have come to realize that you should be doing something else with your life, but you are not quite sure what. Maybe you have an inkling about what you want, but you lack the tools or strategies you need to move forward. Taking some time to investigate your childhood activities and past times will give you access to the things that you are passionate about. You never actually lose these passions; you just get off course. What is life coaching? "Coaching is an on-going partnership that helps clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life. Beginning with the clients' desires, coaching uses reporting, exploring, and a consistent commitment to move the client forward. Coaching accelerates the clients' progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are today and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be tomorrow." - International Coach Federation, ICF Life Coaching is all about helping people get from where they are in their life to where they want to get to. If everyone is being honest with themselves, I think we could all do with improving an area or two of our lives. Rather than actually telling someone the answers, a life coach is the catalyst for getting a client to find the answers themselves. By asking challenging and thought-provoking questions, a life coach can unlock the potential in a client. Coaching is forward looking and focused on the action you are willing to take to get what you want out of life. Sometimes, you just can't see the wood for the trees!

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

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.

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.

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.
