Sandee is the consummate professional, Highly skilled, knowledgeable, empathetic, thrives on diversity, totally nonjudgmental & has a beautiful soul. My regret is that we now reside in different geographic locations so I am no longer able to benefit from Sandee's massages and other essential life skill services she provides.

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.

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.

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 was having a very difficult time after loosing my job and career and Rob's coaching helped to transition from depression to optimism and a clear path for the future. 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. I highly recommend Rob Whalley as your Life Coach. G. Bolduc

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!

I have known Dr. Lunsford for many years and he is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He takes the time to listen and then helps you find the steps needed to solve your problems. He encourages you as a person to grow and go after your passions in life. He has helped me tremendously throughout the years with his guidance, caring attitude and his ability to see the bigger picture. I owe him a great deal of gratitude because I would not be where I am today without his unwavering guidance. Jennifer RN, Tampa, Florida

I am very pleased that attended a course with Marina Piantanida. I did not just listen to lectures. I worked with homework, practice and assignments. I've heard and seen before, but the difference between theory and practice is huge. When you not only read, watch and listen to, but try to act it, and you see the reaction of the people to your actions, you get the desire to introduce this skill in your daily life. And the growing belief in that you are able to do all. You gain strength and excitement. In addition, listening Marina’s clear instructions, you begin to see and understand your own mistakes. Thank U!

Clients get better faster when they work with me because they experience a whole new way to think about their emotions and their bodies. My clients go on to achieve their dreams & goals because they find their happiness, and they live each day in less - or no - pain. It's true. My life purpose is to help people feel great. I left a good paying corporate job to pursue my own Life & Health Coaching practice because I am passionate about sharing how people can get well again, and how getting well allows them to be successful in life.

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 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.
