I have worked with Nathan on several occasions in regards to my personal fitness. He has designed a custom workout regimen for me before and because of the time I was on that regimen I was in the best shape of my life. He did a great job tailoring the workout schedule to my exact needs both schedule wise and for the physical results I was looking for. His style as a trainer and fitness coach is both professional and personable. I would absolutely have him train me again.

Don Burrows’ Professional Profile system helped me win two new, valuable contracts! Here’s how it worked: #1 – A want-ad for a contract position got my attention. My Skills and many Accomplishments were a perfect match, so, I used my Skills data bank and Accomplishments data bank to adapt my Professional Profile to the job, then submitted to the recruiter. The recruiter contracted me within days. A face-to-face - - that’s right, Not A Phone Interview, but a face-to-face interview - - was scheduled within a week. It was the easiest interview I’ve ever had, because everything relevant was laid out. A week later I accepted the contract offer. #2 – Using Don’s method of targeting companies, I sent letters of inquiry to my targets, along with a targeted Professional Profile. One of my targets called me in for a meeting. I left with the assets that I needed to get started on their project, and had a signed contract within a week. Bottom line, it works. A Professional Profile is a proven tool for getting you that next contract, or a new job! Don delivers Great Results, he is a personable expert, with skills of great value, he is on time (and will hold you to timelines), has the highest integrity, creativity, and much more. He cares about you. Don Burrows gets you the attention you deserve by showing hiring managers exactly why they should hire YOU! A Professional Profile will get your phone ringing and will get you that interview. Don’s targeted strategies put your name, skills and accomplishments right in front of the people that you need to talk to. Turning your resume into a Professional Profile will snap you out of the job search doldrums; you’re going to remember all of the amazing things you have achieved, and you’re going to showcase what you can achieve for your future employers. Creating a Professional Profile is a life and career-affirming process that will remind you why you love doing what you do.

Jenny has the best experience possible: personal experience and her own journey with disordered eating. She struggled and learned to successfully recover and taught us all a lot about love in the process. I am proud of her success and proud to see her helping others. Personal experience, degree in psychology (with additional master's degree program), intense nutritional study, personal fitness experiences, and a generous, kind heart make her the best coach a person could want. But don't worry, she can assertively teach and motivate you; she's no pushover. Choosing her is choosing to be a healthier you. Don't hesitate; she is worth your time and money.

I had a Reiki session with Heather and I definitely recommend working with her. She is very kind, lighthearted, and professional. I felt so relaxed, calm, and experienced significantly less stress the week following our session. I will definitely be back.

I discovered Rayna through a Google search for a personal Christian coach to help me navigate a course through my current wilderness experience as a new widow. My husband's illness was brief and many of our financial affairs were in order but how to manage a small farm, taking care of myself, our animals, our home, property & vehicles plus estate resolution, personal effects & a tiny social life (by myself) is overwhelming. She is helping me set priorities, adjust & cope with a lack of routine/schedule/structure & lost familiarity. I don't recognize my life anymore. We are finding & celebrating the good things, carefully taking micro-steps to create a new & healthy normal. And we've only been at this for 7 months. I cannot imagine getting through this without her thoughtful questions and reminders but I am getting through it and life will be good again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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

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.

How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

What is a career counselor?

If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.
