I highly recommend Gaurav at Knowledge Kinetics as a career and life coach. He is a keen observer of human interaction and is adept at reading character and motivations. His accumulated experience and education allow him to quickly assess skill sets and key strengths/opportunities at the individual level, helping his clients grow and progress professionally. Gaurav begins by investing time in open listening and observation, and quickly absorbs critical information and details. Once having formed thoughts and opinions, Gaurav is a thoroughly engaging communicator, whether addressing a single client or a large group. He effectively shares his ideas and recommendations with a personalized and customized approach that is always on target, leaving listeners inspired!   A few examples of Gaurav's coaching and consulting expertise and its impact on my own trajectory include the following: By leveraging Gaurav’s professional expertise transforming qualitative and quantitative data into insightful findings, I was able to bring added value to my larger team. This greatly benefited my organization from a business perspective, and allowed me to grow personally and professionally.   From a consulting perspective, Gaurav also worked effectively with senior leadership, and staff at all levels, to collaborate and advise on effective solutions to problem issues as an internal advisor. His sought-after counsel was a key input in organizational decisions. Whether helping guide you personally on your career and life journey, or inspiring larger teams in achieving critical organizational goals, Gaurav will prove an indispensable asset.

Amy is a very caring,positive supportive person. She is an excellent communicator with great patience. She was my life coach for about five years and helped me with my life goals and values. When I met my partner she became our couples coach. She was good at role playing and relationship skill exercises.She also was good at listening to us and not taking sides. The best thing I could say was that although I had been seeing her for years as my life coach , my girlfriend liked her from the start and always felt comfortable with her. She never felt that Amy favored me over her. This is the most compelling case I can make as to why Amy is so good and has a genuine affection for her clients. She is openly rooting for you. The things she could do better probably is true for most therapists and life or couples coaches. I felt especially as a couples coach she didn't challenge us enough or focus harder on some of the problems we were having. She did not however, attempt to do therapy which is beyond her training and was always clear and honest with us that she was a couples coach and not a couples therapist. My partner and I are still together and thanks to Amy we learned valuable communication skills and a respect for each other. I highly recommend Amy as both a life coach and a couples coach. You will always have a friend who cares about you and wants what's best for you in her.

Tiffanie's professionalism, strong and clear line of questioning, unequivocal confidence in the client's wisdom and power, and unyielding persistence inspires hard work and deep introspection. For me this meant making strides that I thought were unattainable. I had been working for years in therapy on my relationship with a parent. Met with my initial resistance at the idea of change after 10 years of little progress, Tiffanie's prodding, deep listening and championing led me to reexamine the struggle and simulate forgiveness and a course (accompanying beliefs and thought patterns and subsequent feelings and actions) that would empower and support me in my relationship and break with the previous pattern of self-defeat. I made a huge breakthrough once I internalized and embraced the possibility that I actually have a choice in not just how I manage my parent but the level of care that I provide to her. And then her support and coaching as I executed that choice led to true transformation. I can’t emphasize enough how profound this has been. I wholeheartedly recommend Tiffanie as a coach.

I haven't begun working with Kelly yet, but I did speak with her for a little while on the phone. My impression is that she is not only legitimate, but also very professional, sincere, client-centered. I'm looking forward to working with her to overcome some personal challenges, build a successful coaching business, and broaden the horizons of my spirituality.

I'm my dear h for a nutritionist Nicole reached out to me and set up a time to talk! The interview lasted about an hour but she makes sure that she answers all questions and concerns. Nicole was not rushed and totally forcues on me and my needs! Following the interview Nicole sent me over her plans and what she has to offer. This is as far as I gotten with the process of finding a nutritionist and I can tell you I can trust that after my search that Nicole has my best interns in mind and that is most definitely one of the main things I looking for.

Sophia is a talented experience coach and I love working with her. She patiently listens, asks profound questions, leads her session in a manner of self-discovery and exploration. Somehow magically I often arrive to my own solutions with her gentle professional guidance. In a couple of last sessions, Sophia helped me create my dream calendar that I love. It was scary and overwhelming to start setting goals at first. But Sophia masterfully laid out an easy-to-follow plan that turned this project into an inspiring session. Now full with dreams and with a clear vision ahead of me I'm ready to start the New Year, all thanks to Sophia! Highly recommend!

Coach Linda is fantastic. She has excellent academic and career credentials across a range of relevant disciplines. Yet she is very low key, informal, flexible, and easy to work with, and does not presume to "know it all." I recommend her without reservation.

So far I've had one hypnosis session with Julian to help me with focus during my last semester in college. I had never experienced hypnosis before and he took the time to explain the entire process and answer all of my questions so I felt comfortable. Julian is extremely knowledgeable in this line of work and is very attentive to how you feel and what you want to focus on. The session itself was extremely relaxing (his voice has that effect) and with his guidance I was able to visualize my ideal state (in the session) to execute it in real life. Initially I wasn't sure it would work, but I have to say, I felt a difference immediately! The proof for me was seen later in that same week when I submitted a term paper EARLIER than the due date which is hard for a habitual procrastinator like I used to be. Since then, I have consulted him for guidance and support as a life/business coach. His perspective and advice has been invaluable thus far. I'm making progress much faster than I was on my own and he holds me accountable to my goals through unending support and encouragement. I cannot thank him enough!

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.
