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!

When Rephoel first approached me about trying coaching I wasn’t sure if I would benefit from it. I was skeptical about coaching, in general, and, I haven’t had the most success in the areas of health and wellness. I, generally, find it difficult to talk about myself and my problems. Since a few of my business associates had mentioned coaching, and how it helped them with their businesses, I decided to give it a try (even though Rephoel isn’t a business coach). I committed to a 90-day program. Coaching turned out to be very beneficial. By being forced (gently, of course) to talk about my problems, and myself, I came to a few important realizations. Most importantly, my problems are not unique. The self-esteem issues I had been using as an excuse are a problem for many people. The internal dialogue I have is also normal, but is not truthful. I came to realize that nothing tragic was going to happen if I put myself out there. As I pushed myself to talk to more people, I realize that I have value and people like me. I still struggle, but recalling the positive responses helps. I have also made progress with my diet. While I didn’t lose as much as I originally hoped, I was able to lose 15 lbs., which I have kept off. I also learned some new tools to help with overeating and setting myself up for dieting success. I am now better able to make decisions for lasting changes. My coaching experience has benefitted me. Not only has it helped with my health, but it has helped me personally and professionally. While the general subject of the coaching is health and wellness, it touches so many areas of life. I highly recommend this coaching program, and Rephoel. If you have doubts, give it a try anyway! Make a commitment and do it! Thank you Rephoel for introducing me to coaching and showing me that my preconceived notions were wrong. You have helped me more than I could ever have imagined.

    Anthony Vertino is an excellent, insightful, professional therapist. He has recently evolved his practice into a new, exciting level of therapy/coaching. He'll take a serious, committed patient and through a different approach which emphasizes outcomes as opposed to traditional treatments which can take long, long months to possibly work, Vertino uses this positive, results-oriented formula to help your relationships blossom as well as every aspect of one's life conquer indifference and mediocrity. Highly recommend him and trust him. : )

      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!

      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.

      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.
