I haven't begun working with Kelly yet, but I did speak with her for a little while on the phone. My impression is that she is not only legitimate, but also very professional, sincere, client-centered. I'm looking forward to working with her to overcome some personal challenges, build a successful coaching business, and broaden the horizons of my spirituality.

Laura promptly responded to my RFP and was easy to get in touch with and schedule a meeting. At the meeting, she made me feel comfortable and took a genuine interest in my upcoming gig. From a professional standpoint, Laura definitely knew all the nuances and how to navigate the complexities of a live interview. She analyzed my mock interview captured on video, paying attention to weak spots. I immediately knew what needed to be corrected. I am extremely pleased with both Laura's professional expertise and approach, and will be working with her on other projects. I highly recommend you hire Laura to coach you on any life situation that requires you to be confident, assertive, and fearless.

Patrick and I met at a local coffee shop and discussed what I wanted to get out of this interview coaching experience. He gave me the tools I needed to structure my interview responses in the most effective way possible, which was exactly what I was looking for. Patrick has a wealth of knowledge and experience to help guide you, at a terrific value- especially for recent college graduates looking to get into the workplace. He also critiqued my resume and gave me tips for that. I look forward to working with him in the future to continue my prep.

Raffi led an informal group which I attended along with a few classmates from Israel in the summer of 2010. We had just returned to New Jersey from studying in a one- to two-year fellowship abroad. Raffi smoothed our transition back to American life, all while volunteering his time and skills. He is extremely intelligent, insightful, trustworthy and pragmatic. I recommend Raffi without hesitation or reservation. He has a serious goal-focus balanced with a great sense of humor. Raffi is a tremendous, vital person to turn to.

Working with Norman is like working with a good friend. He makes you feel welcome immediately! I especially liked that he has deep family values. His experience and knowledge made him the top choice. If you need someone to walk you through the maze that marriage can feel like, look no further! No one has it all figured out, so it makes it that much better to have a coach in your corner, right?! Like I said before, working with him was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend him/his services.

I was lacking motivation and it was hard for me to start an exercise program but I knew I had to get in shape. After working with Demetrius, my life changed for the better. He started me off with a 15 minutes a day work out program and this gave me the motivation to continue and increase the workouts. Demetrius is an excellent trainer who provides professionalism, challenging workouts and great support in my fitness goals. Working with Demetrius is great and I'm so happy to have him as my trainer.

Katya was AMAZING! I am so excited to have her in my life. I run an online business and work from home. Katya got all of my grocery shopping done, cut up lots of veggies for salads, found holiday cards for my clients, went to ACE hardware to fix my dining room light fixture that has been bothering me for ages....the list goes on! On top of this, she was willing to use and learn my task management system that I use with the rest of my team (Asana). She had her own laptop and was very responsive. After she left, I was able to make myself a salad in about 2 minutes. I can't not afford to have her and I look forward to working with her on-going. Thank you, Katya! :)

Amy is a very caring,positive supportive person. She is an excellent communicator with great patience. She was my life coach for about five years and helped me with my life goals and values. When I met my partner she became our couples coach. She was good at role playing and relationship skill exercises.She also was good at listening to us and not taking sides. The best thing I could say was that although I had been seeing her for years as my life coach , my girlfriend liked her from the start and always felt comfortable with her. She never felt that Amy favored me over her. This is the most compelling case I can make as to why Amy is so good and has a genuine affection for her clients. She is openly rooting for you. The things she could do better probably is true for most therapists and life or couples coaches. I felt especially as a couples coach she didn't challenge us enough or focus harder on some of the problems we were having. She did not however, attempt to do therapy which is beyond her training and was always clear and honest with us that she was a couples coach and not a couples therapist. My partner and I are still together and thanks to Amy we learned valuable communication skills and a respect for each other. I highly recommend Amy as both a life coach and a couples coach. You will always have a friend who cares about you and wants what's best for you in her.

When I had asked Ava to do a reading for me, it was a time during my life when I was struggling to pick a path between doing what was expected of me and what my passions and desires were. After my reading, I felt more confident in choosing the path that would be more difficult but rewarding in the end. Ava not only explained the cards dealt to me but how they related to my situation where as other readers I have had in the past just blurted out a description clearly memorized out of a book. I would definitely recommend her for a more experienced and personalized reading. Thank you so so much Ava!

The journey hasn't been easy but the process of getting there with help has made it bearable. The key was to keep focus on the gosl at hand. The visual workouts of video's was a tremendous guidance for each day workouts. In addition, the meal plan was an added bonus in achieving and completing weekly goals. I appreciate my online coach for all the times he pushed me to see what was in front of me and not beneath me such as the scale. And, to appreciate how far I have come. An environment of professionalism and constructive feedback in persuading clients like myself to keep pushing. It wasn't easy but with this online program, it made changing my bad habits into habits that will better my overall healthy lifestyle. Thank you, Coach Reese.

I had the honor of working under Kristen Crockett when she was a Trainer and Consultant for College Summit. Kristen has the ability to coach, mentor, and guide in a way that really brought out my leadership skills, confidence, and fearlessness as a facilitator, speaker, and professional. She understands the most critical strengths someone needs to enhance, in order to take their leadership and boldness to the next level. At the same time, she delicately but consistently tackles an individual's professional challenges in a way that allows growth both personally and professionally through her coaching and mentorship. My experience working under Kristen's training and coaching allowed me to excel, gain directorship positions, and eventually have enough boldness, confidence, and discipline to start and grow a successful business. I would highly recommend her as a speaker, trainer, or coach.

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.
