I worked out with Patrick for over a year and a half. He helped me lose over 90 pounds, which I've kept off for over a year now. During the process he not only was my personal trainer but became a good friend. His style is very easy going, yet very motivating without being condescending. I not only learned how to exercise at home, but learned about nutrition, muscle groups and added a few new recipies to my collection! I never, ever, imagined jogging in my life. He encouraged me to try a 5K and now I've jogged in five of them. I dropped five sizes, regained my confidence and took back my life. I could have never done it without him--for he has truly saved my life! Thanks again, Patrick!

Patrick has been my son's mentor and "Coach over Skype" since high school started this year. He has played a crucial role in getting the right message to a teeager at this crucial time in his life. As a mother, my words of encouragement or messages do not always reach the target. Patrick not only has the wisdom, experience and patience, but is able to reach my son in the right way to make a huge difference in his personal life. It started when my son was deciding to try out for Varsity basketball. He was full of fears, insecurities and lack of time management, it was a huge decision. When he made Varsity freshman year, new challenges came. Throughout the year Patrick provided support, weekly check-ins with encouragement, mental exercises and stress reduction techniques as well as life coaching strategies which will influence my son for the rest of his life. Patrick is a mentor and guide without whom this year would have been very difficult. We plan to continue our journey with Donohue Life Coaching. Y.K San Francisco, Ca

I have been working with Victoria for going on 3 years now- we meet up once a year to revamp my resume- and I don't know what I would do without her. She gives what I have done in life focus and helps market me in a way that I never could have done myself to be desirable to potential employers. She also gives me the confidence to go for what I really want out of life.

The main word that comes to mind about Rosalyn's coaching is "courageous." She consistently and artfully offered steps, insights, and ideas that stretched me to my limits. It would have been easier for some coaches to simply go along, but Rosalyn provided the leadership I needed to press forward - and that's what I hired her to do. As a result, I now have a greater willingness to stand up tall and strong for what I believe are the best strategies in situations throughout my professional and personal life.

    I have been stuck in the same job for the last 5 years as a mid-level manager. I'm wasn't sure if there was hope for me to move to the next level in leadership. Letta was really responsive and quick to help me outline a strategy that should work well. We'll be meeting a couple times a month for coaching sessions where we'll work on mock interviews and leadership scenarios to help me gain more skills that will impress my bosses. This really seems like it's going to help me out of my rut!

    When I decided I needed a coach to assist with some decisions I needed to make, I began my search online. The sheer number and different types of coaches was totally overwhelming. But, little did I know that the perfect coach for me was right under my nose! Several months before, I had been introduced to Cassandra through a mutual friend because I was interested in the coaching profession for myself. We had several brief conversations about her training and about the business of coaching. Even in those early discussions, I found Cassandra to be warm, articulate, professional, considerate, and quick-witted with quite a sense of humor. Suddenly, I thought…Cassandra would make a great coach…for me! And I was right! She is not only a great listener but one of her most fabulous attributes is that she is able to “synthesize” my ramblings and feed them back to me in a marvelously cohesive statement that sums up what I said and much of what I felt – but hadn’t said! So, over the past 13 years, I have maintained Cassandra as my “go to” coach, and I have never been disappointed in the outcome of our collaboration. I have never felt judged, or wrong, or stupid in any situation that I have shared with her. Cassandra is the most non-judgmental person I have ever met. She is phenomenal in the way she supports me in whatever I am trying to achieve…and it’s ALWAYS about ME! If she has an opinion about something, she sets that aside and places the focus on what I want for my life. Her questions are so skillful that they encourage me to think in new and different ways and it inspires me to pull from deep within myself to come up with new ideas and approaches to my situation. In other words, Cassandra’s coaching is not about proving that she has the answers, but rather she is all about empowering her clients to gain clarity, recognize their own truth, and affirm their gifts. Yes, it is evident that Cassandra is highly trained and certified; but her value as a coach goes over and above what can be taught in a classroom. She is a person of integrity with a genuine desire and commitment to helping her clients achieve the highest level of personal satisfaction and professional success in their lives. I recommend Cassandra without reservation!

      Joe put me at ease from the beginning. I found him to be very professional, personable and intuitive. He was an excellent listener and very skilled at being able to sum up my circumstantial barriers and point out things I was unaware of. Joe was very skilled at helping me to navigate my life course toward a successful new path. I am very grateful to Joe and highly recommend him to anyone who needs life coach assistance.

      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.
