I've been working with Pat for over 1 year and I must admit, it has been terrific! I sought Pat's help for my own coaching business. I have a history of starting and stop, but to this date, I am still going strong, and this outstanding. Besides the obvious help with the coaching business side of things, Pat has helped me become really aware of habits/tendency's I never knew existed that have been slowing me chronically. Furthermore, Pat has gone above and beyond to help me in situations when my person life was experiencing some turmoil. All in all, Pat is a terrific coach, he helps you stay positive, focus on what's working, overcome challenges, and believe in yourself. If Pat messages you, my suggestion is you reach out and talk to him. You won't regret it! Diarmuid

Victoria has been helping me with my English since 2009. She is the best English Tutor I have ever had! She helps me a lot with my pronunciation and how to write the best sentences. I really enjoy learning from Victoria, and I think I can't do good without her! I'm now having my own business "Sassy Dog Wear", and all the product descriptions and website pages are written with Victoria's help. I feel very lucky that I found her!

Loren Michaels Harris auditioned and won a spot in our cast to read "LOST OR FOUND" in the 2016 Listen to Your Mother: Southwest Michigan show which I produce and co-direct locally. He. Was. Fabulous! Wonderful to work with. Very open to suggested edits and coaching. He is so clear on his message that he speaks off-the-cuff as smoothly and confidently as he reads a prepared piece. He was cool under pressure and absolutely delivered. A consummate professional. I would work with him anytime!

Working with Dana has been a remarkable experience that has helped me kickstart the life I've been dreaming of for years but had trouble brining to fruition from lack of clarification on my goals. She's caring, warm, and truly wants to see you succeed. She takes the time to get to know you, so you can be helped in a way that's true to who you are and who you want to be. I'm very appreciative of everything she's helped me to do from starting my own business to making a move I was scared to do. Well worth every penny--it's an invaluable experience.

When I need solutions, I call Faith. I can not begin to express how great it has been to work with her. I met Faith while serving as Marketing Director of a University. She was contracted for numerous editing projects. Later, Faith assisted me in transitioning to my present entrepreneurial role. We collaborated in web content creation/editing. Faith has a strong background in business services, accounting, and compliance. Yet, she enjoys writing and editing - what a combination. Her business recommendations have been invaluable and her excitement is phenomenal. You should see for yourself. Faith has my recommendation!

I love working with Kelsey. She is so encouraging, motivating and positive. Her training and meal plans are straight forward and easy to understand. She is an excellent coach and is always asking how she can better help you - a good trainer will just give you a plan. An excellent trainer will always constantly be helping you, asking you how they can help you, encouraging you. She isn't only a trainer, but she is your friend. ❤ I still have a ways to go, but I've learned so much from Kelsey and I'm eating right, exercising, losing fat mass and building muscles which is my goals that's she's helping me achieve.

I met Rebekah at a local workshop as I was struggling with work/life balance. I knew through Rebekah’s energy, sincerity and knowledge an inquiry about her coaching was necessary. Rebekah and I worked together for several months on figuring out what work/life balance meant to me, how my values play a role in that and areas of growth. Her strengths based approach allowed me to feel confident in my work, but also personally. Rebekah is very mindful in listening to what you are struggling with which allowed me to be vulnerable and honest in the areas I need to work on. I truly enjoyed our work together and appreciate Rebekah’s kindness and knowledge. If you are looking at diving into areas of your life you are grappling with or if you just need a little boost, I highly recommend coaching with Rebekah!

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.
