Michelle MacGregor has been such a blessing. She has been very available since the first counseling session. I have met with her for both marriage and personal counseling. She is very direct, making sure I always understand what she is explaining. She asks questions, let's me struggle with answers and then helps me to come to helpful answers. The most important of all, she is very consistent with pointing me to Jesus. When I first met with her I was really struggling with insecurity, junk from my past. I didn't know how to get past my failures and see myself as valuable in God's eyes. She has helped me to get beyond all that and has helped me to see how much God loves me. She knows how to ask the right questions, how to get to the very core of what is going on. She is gentle but firm on what I always need to hear. Compassionate and kind. With all that being sais, yes I highly recommend her!

I have known Vicky both professionally and personally for over 17 years. I recommend her to all of my colleagues who are looking for career/life coaching. Her extensive history within the corporate environment makes her a natural fit for understanding and navigating the complexities of a Fortune 500 environment. She has many intangibles, including her ability to make you feel comfortable with discussions on your professional and personal challenges. However, her straight-forward approach makes for the perfect partner for solid professional growth, and personal stability (sanity) in challenging times. She is outstanding at helping you visualize and document optimal paths forward, and has been a driving force in my career progression, solving workplace challenges and personal glide path. Although my needs might be different than others who might be looking for assistance in this area, I am confident in my recommendation of Jacksonville Executive Coaching and Vicky Sydorowicz.

    Life definitely can be difficult at times and it is great to have friends and family that you can talk to. However, sometimes you need another perspective. I reached out to Jamila as I was struggling through some difficult times in my life. Transitioning into the role of a caregiver for my mom, dealing with an overwhelming amount of stress, changing careers, relocating back home and trying to find time for myself. Jamila coached me through the hardest times I have ever faced, providing me with clarity, allowing me to refocus my priorities. She helped me learn how to adjust my thinking, teaching me to acknowledge how much I was doing and to feel good about the progress I was making. Our discussions kept me focused on what was important. Through her teachings I learned a number of strategies to use in order to stay calm in those stressful moments. I am a very independent-perfectionist-overachiever type and Jamila helped me discover ways to embrace those qualities through balance. She is this new voice that I hear now in the back of my mind that encourages me and keeps me grounded, centered, focused, and calm.

      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.

      What is a career coach?

      If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

      • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
      • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
      • Defining your career goals
      • Creating a plan for job searching
      • Improving networking strategies and skills
      • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
      • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
      • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

      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 is career counseling important?

      Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

      • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
      • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
      • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
      • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
      • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
      • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
      • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

      How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

      A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.
