To work with Molly is a true blessing. She's not only a gifted practitioner, but a deeply caring intuitive soul. After just one session, she's already offered me such profound support and guidance. It is exceptional to work with someone who is so gifted at guiding you back to the fullness of who you are. It is holistic healing in the truest sense. I feel changed and so appreciative of the physical, emotional and spiritual transformation that Molly has facilitated within me. She followed up to check in with me the day after our session, and sent me beautiful healing energy when I especially needed it. I felt extraordinarily well cared for. Molly is a gift!

I am very grateful for the help and guidance Jane provided in helping me declutter and organize two rooms in my home. Jane showed me how to develop an organizing system to make it easier to put things away and to find them when needed. When Jane first arrived we discussed my goals and needs, then she outlined a plan of action and we got right to work. Jane was great at using containers at hand to organize materials. She offered great suggestions for recycling/donating goods. Jane was punctual, arriving on time and working the entire contracted time. Jane has a great attitude and disposition for helping others. I would certainly recommend Jane for a home organizing project.

Three months ago, I knew that I wanted to make a career transition but didn't know how to achieve that goal. I felt overwhelmed and was spinning my wheels. Enter Deb Goldstein. After just 1 hour of meeting with Deb, she was serving up gobs of value! Later she sent detailed notes with homework assignments we'd discussed to help me inch closer to my goal. Our sessions continued in this pattern for the next 2 months and I followed Deb's guidance after each time we met. What happened next surprised me. I received a better opportunity than the type I was originally targeting, a job that was more aligned with my long term goals. Had I even received an intermediate job offer that quickly, I would have been thrilled, but the offer I got exceeded my expectations. I wouldn't have received such a gift without learning and following Deb's skilled guidance. I will never approach a future job search the same way again. Deb is a gifted investigator, career therapist, cheerleader, and muse in a single package. She will shepherd you through her organized, thoughtful process, always going at your pace. Deb digs deep with her questions and helps you discover what you want from your career and how to craft your personal brand. She does all of this without telling you what she thinks you want, empowering you to own the process and try new things. Deb will open your mind to a better way of job searching and career building. I will gladly hire Deb again if I need career advice in the future.

I contacted Jim for help transitioning into a new career. Ironically, he helped me realize the value of the career I already had. With his advice on improving my life outside of work, I decided to stick with my current career. I appreciate the eye opening experience.

Ian did an excellent job! I am mid-life in career and needed someone to update my resume. Ian combined all of my work experience, updated my layout and advised me on what content was important. I was proud of my resume after Ian completed it. Resumes are so important and I couldn't have trusted it with anyone better. Ian offers other services, as well. I will be utilizing every resource that Ian can offer. He's intelligent, strategic and, above all, an honest & interesting guy. Thank you, Ian.

I've been a student of Rose's for seven years, and my life has changed dramatically as a result of her teaching, guidance, clarity and goodness. Rose seeks to help us understand our patterns, what holds us back in life, and how to propel ourselves into the lives we want. I've taken workshops, classes, and had 1:1 sessions - all invaluable, all I have grown from. Don't let fear of uncertainty hold you back - Rose is approachable and direct and incredibly intuitive, kind and genuine. She will help guide you on your path and it will be more beautiful than you ever imagined.

Chavi is an amazing meditation teacher and a divine human being. I attended her first meditation class in Cambridge and immediately knew that she was the real deal. Over the course of the next year or so my meditation practice grew and blossomed in such deep and beautiful ways I couldn't even have imagined. Chavi's gentle meditation guidance and discussions after meditation are very helpful and help bring a deeper level of understanding. I moved South for work and miss her very much. I still use her meditation techniques and am so grateful for her.

I first met Ciara about 7 months ago through a free meet-up. And boy did she leave a fantastic impression! She was so clear, serious yet funny in her approach, targeted, goals-oriented, and well-planned.......... that I hired her as a personal coach. She helps me deal with the "mean girl in my head," prioritize events in my life, and THINK though all of my future actions so that I come up with the right plan. And when I can't, she offers spot on solutions. I highly recommend Ciara to anyone needing guidance, coaching, support, and/or motivation for all areas in their life. She is calm yet EFFECTIVE. I am a lucky person to have found her!

Real Health GPS LLC' Gigi Adduci is amazing... After my car accident 2 yrs ago and back problem as a result, I don't know what I would have done without her and her guidance... She helped me get rid of anger, anxiety from constant pain to allow healing.... We also used EFT to help relieve pain in my neck and back, I felt the difference within 5 min... I recommend giving her a shot and see for yourself! I feel like a new person... P.s. Service is reasonably pricesd as well... Which is always a plus for me.

Working with Jen has been the single most impactful thing I’ve done in getting closer to understanding who I really am and the life I really want to create. And, for the first time, probably ever – I accept and love myself fully and unapologetically. I am still a work in progress, but I am so proud of being able to finally make empowered decisions confidently, and speak up for what I truly want. And, being totally present and intentional in life is just so rewarding! I am happier and choosing to live life my way. Blessed and beyond grateful for Jen’s gentle and strong, nurturing and motivating, loving and unrelenting support, guidance and desire for my success and happiness.

    It's never been easy for me to open up to people, much less someone who is relatively a stranger. Rita was extremely patient with me and let me do whatever I needed to in order to feel more comfortable. Her attitude is very down to earth and open minded, and she's very comforting, never condescending. I honestly can't imagine how I'd make it through the past few months without her help and guidance.

    It's hard to put into words the value that Kerri has brought to my business. At first, it was hard to imagine involving someone so closely with my business - it took years to get to where I was and the thought of trusting my business with anyone was, frankly, scary. From day one, Kerri made me feel completely comfortable, taking the time to learn my business and how it operates. Using this information, she created a plan that didn't require "starting from scratch" as I had originally feared, but rather one that built upon what I already had in place. Over the last 6 months of formally working together, her guidance has helped me work more efficiently and stay organized, putting a clear strategy in place for execution. I can now focus on the aspects of my business that I love, like interacting with my clients, knowing that Kerri is helping behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly while we continue to grow. I'll beat several personal records this year as part of this work and I'm excited to see where Kerri will take me from here!

      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.
