“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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

    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.

    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 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).

    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!

    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.

    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.
