I trained with Patrick for just over 2 years and made great progress in my weight loss. Patrick is a motivator and always kept me in check. If you have the will to make a change in your lifestyle and need a great coach, trainer and friend - look Patrick up and schedule a time to meet. You will not be disappointed.

Pat worked with our college freshman son and was instrumental in getting us through a tough first year. Pat went above and beyond in every way to support our son which was a tremendous relief forparents who felt helpless in a difficult situation. Pat is a genuine person and was immediately personally invested in our son and us. We've received great feedback from educators, family, even the pediatrician in choosing a life coach to support our son through such an important and demanding phase of life. Pat is excellent with young adults and parents of young adults. We cannot recommend Pat highly enough!

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.

Sarah is an incredibly supportive and non judgmental life coach. She helped to develop my confidence and teach me the value of creative visualization. While working with Sarah through a career change, i more than tripled my salary and found a challenging position that supports both my career goals and greater life goals.

KeriAynn provided care for my Husband who suffers from Alzheimer’s while I got away for a much needed break. She was amazing! Her knowledge about the disease, and ability to communicate with him were extraordinary. He absolutely adored her. Charlie was easily agitated, but KeriAynn had a very calming effect on him. She was extremely responsive to his needs and cared for him with a level of professionalism and compassion that is not easily found in a Caregiver. She could not have been more suited to care for the love of my life. Rhunette Humrich

Joanna is unlike any interview coach I have had before, the approach she has to her clients was something to admire, and I looked and researched a few interview coaches before I decided to go with Negotiation Geek. Joanna has experience working HR in a Fortune 500 company, offers great advice, and she puts forth the most solid effort I have ever seen from a career coach in getting to know her clients’ needs before a session is established. This isn’t a cookie cutter coaching session, I was very impressed when she helped me prep for an interview for a Fortune 500 company, she reached out to her network who worked for the company to give me advice on the hiring process, taught me how to search for clues in the job posting, and asked me some very tough questions in our mock interview session. As a result of her game planning and the preparation skills it left me, I was well prepared for the interview, and it wasn’t nearly as hard as my mock interview with Negotiation Geek. I would recommend Joanna again and again to anyone who needs to prepare for an interview, and her salary negotiation skills are top notch and have helped me establish a better salary for the jobs I have been interviewing for. Joanna is awesome, and she even followed up with me after the interview to see how it went! Joanna is an amazing coach and I trust her because she’s put in the work in corporate America HR and she truly cares about her clients’ success. Go with Negotiation Geek and you will not be disappointed!

I have been receiving Reiki treatments from Teresa for about a year and I can honestly say my life has improved in every way since. No more physical pain in my back or plantar fasciitis. I dealt with severe depression and anxiety for more than 20 years and the depression is completely gone. My mind is clearer than it has been since my school years and my creative blocks are mostly gone. Teresa is a phenomenal practitioner with an uncanny knack to be able to know exactly where my pain is and helping my body to heal itself. I highly recommend her.

She is kind, knowledgeable and has a special talent for really listening to her clients to help them determine the path that they should take. I look forward to my sessions with her. I have a real good feeling after a session and always feel motivated and inspired because of her wise, insightful words. Bhavani and her life coaching will forever be an integral part of the healthy, motivated and mindful life I strive to lead. Do yourself a favor and reach out to her. You will be glad you did.

    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.

    I recently published a book, and Janet was an absolute DREAM to work with as the editor! Seriously. My greatest concern with this project was wanting to see and hear my voice come through on the pages. Janet made that happen! I could hear my voice come to life. Not only was the finished manuscript flawless, no errors, but there was also a TON of amazing feedback and respect of my vision for the book. Her feedback was honest and constructive, a passionate critique of my writing style, and there were even a few laughs for the both of us. What a joy to work with! AND, Janet even went above and beyond to create a unique and personalized video tutorial to guide me through the process of reviewing her edits in Word. Can't say enough to express how happy I am with the results of working with Janet!

    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.

    Jimmy is the man. He's one of the best Strength and Conditioning coaches I've ever worked with. He put 90+ pounds on all of my majors lifts and added 9 inches to my vertical in one off season. He's knowledgeable and personable and will help reach whatever goals you set in fitness and nutrition. I highly recommend him.

    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.
