Deb is an exceptional career coach (and exceptional human being). When I was out of work and professionally disoriented, Deb came to the rescue. By engaging me in thoughtful discussion of my core values, skills and experience, she guided me to reformulate my personal narrative and helped me articulate my professional goals. In supporting me in the development and implementation of customized job-search strategies, I found the confidence and determination to find the job I truly wanted. She was the mirror I needed to discover who I wanted to become. I could not recommend her more highly.

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.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Jim McCoy. I started working with him a year and a half ago (when I was in major crisis mode). He's intelligent, funny, and incredibly compassionate. I've had more growth with him than I did after a few years with my Boston-based psychiatrist. His method works for me because he does more than simply mirror my feelings -- He actually gives me his opinion when I ask for it. He's helped me gain confidence and direction. He always makes himself available to talk and never makes me feel like it's a chore. I HIGHLY recommend him as a life coach. He'll change your world!

Rob's energy and passion for what he does are clear right away. He always has a positive outlook and will help you find the silver lining in every situation. When I first spoke with him, I was having some trouble being underappreciated at work. Rob offered sound advice and was always there for me when I needed him. Highly recommend Rob as a life and business coach, motivational speaker and all of the above!

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.

I have been working with Mike for several years. Originally my intention was to help with specific goals. it has developed into a much richer relationship. We cover the gamut of personal and professional subjects We speak on the phone which makes it very convenient. Mike is a great active listener. I always feel that he understands where my had is at. I always feel more positive after our talk. There are times where he pushes you to get to a deeper level of understanding. He is successful at this despite the one dimensionality of the phone.

It was very helpful working with Wendy on issues around my marriage. She taught us tools about effective listening and actually stayed with us for 4 hours until we were comfortable with the technique and felt we had resolved the issue(s) at the time. Wendy is very clear, concise and compassionate as a coach and we learned a lot.. She definitely went above and beyond our expectations. The quality of her work was excellent. I don't have anything to say that would have made it better next time. I want her back to teach in the same way she did before. A real gem of a coach!

    Geoffrey has an amazing gift. He is a truly talented healer and lightworker. I felt so empowered and positive after our session. Geoffrey helped me to visualize goals and taught me the action steps to achieving them. I could see it so clearly as you guided me through each timeline event, as if I was really there. The techniques he used were very calming, relaxing, and put me in the meditative state needed to see myself in the moment of each goal and realizing them. Geoffrey gave me the tools needed to take this a step further into practicing visualization and positive manifestation on my own, until all my goals are achieved. I highly recommend Geoffrey to anyone struggling to manifest their dreams into reality.

    I first met with Sharon a few months ago to find a job closer to home. At that time, I was unclear about my core strengths and assets. Over the spring and summer, Sharon Harris has provided concrete tools and exercises that have pinpointed my strengths and talents and has opened up a whole new world to me. She continues to be on the look-out on my behalf for employment closer to home. Sharon is professional, her enthusiasm is contagious and she is an absolute joy to work with.

    As a person who has read a lot of self-help books and been unsuccessful in making change, I am the perfect person to share that Francesca's life-coaching is extremely powerful and effective. Her one-on-one coaching has helped me bring about desired transformations in my life, and I highly recommend her!

    Everyone talks about work life balance when the reality is our work is integrated into our life, not balanced with it. Pete's ability to add value in everything I brought to him, even if it was not something he had experience in, makes him a great asset to have on you team! Pete helped me with a variety of different projects and situation in my professional role, volunteer role, and personal life. Pete's greatest value to me was his ability to speak into any area of my life and add value or give me clarity. Conversations with him helped me process through tough leadership decision at work and helped me create better personal disciplines in my life. If you are looking for help in one area of your life, Pete can help. If you are willing to open up about every area of you life...hold on because Pete will give you the candid feedback to take everything to the next level!

    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.
