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

I started working with Julie on my resume “thinking” I had to get a different job. Over the last few years my business was down. Waaaaaay down. Julie asked me a ton of questions about my job and how my business worked. She came up with an outstanding resume for me. In the process she gave me some valuable information on how to re-market my current business. Her tips were so worth-wild and practical that my business is back up and doing so well, I’m no longer looking for another job.”Thank you Julie, you are the best”!

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!

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 known Amera McCoy for almost 4 years now and I can say without a doubt that she is the best executive coach I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Amera McCoy is a superb executive coach who builds relationships with her clients to get results, rather than approaching it as just another business transaction. Our interaction began in class when I started my doctoral program in Business Psychology. After getting to know her professional background and seeing her vast knowledge exhibited, I decided to reach out on a more formal note. She has helped and coached me through some of the challenging moment in my career and remains a friend, confidant, and (she doesn’t know yet) mentor years later. She brings the same passion and expertise to a group situation that she did for me one-on-one. I couldn't have asked for a better partner in either occasion Amera has a great sense of humor and tremendous life/professional experiences that she leveraged when working with me individually and with my teams.

Minister Michael has greatly helped realize my endeavors and also helped me see that my low self esteem that I held on for years had been a debilitating crutch. That crutch was preventing from moving forward with my life. Minister Michael coached me on how to master myself in terms of staying focused and not beating up on myself so much when I make errors in judgment. He was very consistent in helping me.

I don't know where to begin... Ashley helped me plan out my entire career path from my first year of college all the way to the day I received the offer letter from the employer. She doesn't only help you establish your career path she helps you rationally breakdown all the milestones you'll need to hit in order to accomplish your personal career goals. All in all, I owe many thanks to Ashley for my career growth. Without her expertise and advice I would not be in the position I am in today.

Annette is an outstanding coach and has helped me with the way I see myself, my weight and how muscle is more condensed than fat and I'm much smaller than what I weigh on the scale because I strength train 3 days a week with heavy weights. She champions me to the finish line and I've achieved many goals I've set for myself with Annette beside me as a partner climbing the mountain beside me.

Darick is extremely knowledgeable and tailors the work out to what suits you the best. His understanding of anatomy ensures that you train your weaker areas in parallel without causing any discomfort (I am an older individual). I have never looked or felt better because of Darrick's tutelage.

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.
