“I don’t need a career, or life coach – I know my direction.” When a 2.5 year, full-time contract came to an end a coworker suggested that I might find it helpful to see a friend of hers whom had a coaching and consultancy business (yielding an eye roll from me). As a bit of a favor, I contacted Deb. I have always been laser-focused with my career. I am often the go-to caregiver, and document-person in my family. I pride myself in being able to keep it all together while exceeding goals and expectations. I was blindsided when my first meeting with Deb was a complete catharsis. She helped me slow down, refine my pitch, and build on my strengths as they applied to some of the new skill sets I had acquired, and would be offering as I set out to build my business again. During the couple of months we worked together, Deb was very detailed with our agreed upon goals from meeting-to-meeting. She often followed up between meetings to help me stay on track, and provided subtle but effective encouragement (remember – I didn’t need a coach). An unexpected bonus was that Deb also happens to be very connected and opened a few key doors for me by making introductions. If you are skeptical about engaging with a “coach,” Deb will amaze you. You’ll wish you had met her ten years earlier. I have a feeling she is a unique coach. I know that I will be engaging with Deb again. -- Cindy Davis

I hired Jane as a Life Coach because I am going through a life transition and seeking a new path that reflects the growth I have managed over the last several. I spent many years in an emotionally abusive marriage where my feelings were dismissed, my dreams squelched and my intellect ridiculed. As a single parent in the ten years between now and then, I had little time to pursue dreams or new careers, but I was away from the bullying and able to finally begin to blossom and to value myself. Now my children are grown and I'm ready to take the next step, but I realized that I could not do it alone. The conditioning was still too strong. I wanted someone to help, to bounce things off of, to give me perspective and to keep me from falling into ambivalence and indecision in the face of that inner critic. Jane has been that person. She has a wonderful combination of kindness and straightforwardness. She spent our first session just listening, giving her full attention to where I had been and where I was at. The validation of that alone, was worth gold to me. She has the ability to listen in a way that is deep and that helps you hear yourself, and trust yourself. We are still working towards my goals, which she is helping me identify and stay true to. The more I work with her the more solid and confident I become in my dreams and the quieter that echo of the bully becomes. I highly recommend Jane for anybody who is in a transition period of their life--especially if you have been the victim of abuse--and is looking for someone who can provide support, structure and firm but gentle guidance. She never, never tells you what to believe or who you are or what you want. She helps you find your own way there.

Jim is a wonderful coach! I highly recommend him as he takes the time to listen to you and he really cares about your outcome- it shows that he is passionate about his work! He and I have had about 5 sessions so far and he is helping me see more clearly what I want from my life and work. It's a process, and I sometimes feel all over the place- but Jim can really get to the core and ask you, "When you get this (and you will!) do you really want it, and why?" So success is a reality, and I feel I'm taking charge of my life, career and happiness! I'm thankful to have found such a great life coach in Jim, he's professional yet down to earth and I look forward to our next session!

Rose Siple was my spiritual guide through Thought Alchemy's 20 Week Co-Creating Pathing journey towards building my life and ultimate long term goal of a to that I would truly love to live, but also as one I loved living, here and now. My transformation including healing of my own inner turmoil but also inter-personal healing with others in both my personal and professional life. Only through understanding my own perspective as well as opening, acknowledging, and appreciating other's perspective's in any given situation with love and compassion I learned that communication was not only possible but necessary and essential. Reflecting back now, I can see the dramatic difference in my approach to new challenges and conflicts where I once approached with fear, insecurity, and anxiety are now met with confidence, self-assuredness and flexibility. Loving my life now, here, today is so much simpler and flows so much smoother with greater ease now that I no longer struggle against changes but accept gracefully with optimism. I can only add this choice, my choice to freely accept and embrace which was presented and offered by the Universe, God, Infinite presence or whatever whatever belief anyone has, was a welcomed one I'll forever be thankful for!

I am a 74 year old woman that has been training with Ryan for years! His program is extremely safe, effective and most importantly, its FUN! ... Because if you can't get a laugh or two in, forget it! Not only have I gotten a leaner body, but I have also greatly increased my flexibility, which has helped my quality of life tremendously! I highly recommend the senior citizen community to hire Ryan for their exercise and flexibility needs!

Very grateful to have been given Drew as my coach. He has a way of getting information across so that you understand it. He is very patient; I know I'm not the first person he's explained all this to, yet he acts like it :-) His energy is positive, yet mellow. Really glad to be a part of his team, and I know that I will owe my success to him. Thanks for being awesome Drew!!

I had interviewed two other fitness coaches before Gena and what I loved about Gena from the start was her willingness to listen and customize a plan based on my personal needs, circumstances and abilities. She coaches, encourages, checks in and keeps the experience positive providing the little extra push needed to stay focused on fitness goals that can easily be compromised with a busy to-do list.

Jen is an intelligent, compassionate coach who provides exactly the right amount of support you need to reach your goals. What I loved about Jen is that she is so empowering. I worked with her to get off sugar. She helped me see that even making small changes could have significant, long term effects. I would highly recommend Jen if you are looking for a seasoned compassionate coach who knows how to help you become your best self.

I met with Coach Noah a few months back as I was having problems keeping a sustained energy level throughout the day. Sure I could just drink a bunch of coffee but lets be real, that ain't to healthy! By the end of the day I hardly had the motivation to get myself to the gym which would led me to miss days. I know this is a big no no since going to the gym actually helps BOOST energy. Noah had suggested that I try synergy's product Pro Argi 9 which is a natural way to boost energy by increasing NO levels your body. In turn this leads to greater blood flow. After the first few days using this new supplement I could really notice the difference! I must say, kudos to you, coach!

Received an amazing reading from Lauren. Very detailed with the reading and very clear on actual time frames. Everything was really accurate. All predictions came to pass. It was like getting a reading from someone I knew my whole life but I only knew Lauren for 15 minutes. Would recommend her to anyone.

I researched Reiki in Jamaica, Plain and Beth was in the top 5! The session, which flew by, along with the feedback that she gave with what's going in my life, was so on-point! She is truly amazingly gifted and I don't know what I would do without her. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and anyone who is seeking Reiki or Life Coaching. She is THE best!

I couldn't do it without Kerri. She doesn't just see my goals and hopes as I do - she sees beyond them, to potentialities and capabilities for myself and my business that I just couldn't see on my own. I can often be full of ideas, but Kerri trusts those ideas, and more importantly, has the vision to see them through. It adds immeasurable value to my life and my work. And everyone will tell you that she does all of this while being riotously funny, but I think what they really mean is that Kerri has time to make you laugh because she's got everything else under control. I will never forget watching Kerri sign a check to her wedding planner, in her wedding dress, with a glass of champagne in hand - she can do anything! I would trust Kerri with any project no matter the size, and I am always grateful for her insight and her advice. She never fails to offer me motivation, capability, and control (and, of course, make me laugh).

      Time to Smile Coaching

      New To Thumbtack

        About

        Being a teen is tough, it always has been. Their bodies are growing faster than their brains. Some of their body parts are growing faster than others. There's pressure for grades, sports, sex, drinking or drugs, and all the things that goes along with growing up. It's always been hard. Now, it's all online. You don't do cyber bullying, sex, and drugs unless you're addicted, depressed, or anxious. Role models used to promote, "Just say no." and "Stranger danger". Now, they're Miley Cyrus and Justin Beiber. Divorce rate is over 50%, and kids really don't know where to turn. I'm not saying that I have all the answers, but I believe in talking to our kids, and letting them know that they are worth more than a cheap picture or a quick high. Peer pressure and bullying are real, but when kids are taught, that it will end, that they do have a future outside that building they call school, and that they do have options and self-worth. Maybe, just maybe, drug rates, suicide rates, and mass shootings won't feel like their only options.

        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.
