I have used Connie as a personal trainer for multiple times over the span of several years. Each time I have enjoyed her expertise as well as her attentiveness to my personal needs; not a cookie-cutter schedule. I intend on continuing to use her as my personal trainer as needed.

Working with Angela has been so enlightening. As my life coach, she has helped me to make several positive changes in my life. I have gained insight into how my thoughts and feelings affect how I show up in everyday life. She has given me the tools to help me take control of my emotions and empowered me to show up in more positive ways. My self-esteem and confidence levels have improved immensely. I am better able to speak my truth and communicate more effectively. Angela's compassion and grace allowed me to be vulnerable and take an honest look at what is holding me back personally and professionally . I am forever grateful for her guidance on my journey to a better me.

I worked with Noelle to prepare for overseas missionary life. She gave me tools for improved communication, cultural shock, and how to maintain a support system and self care. I went from slightly terrified to feeling excited and confident. I've been abroad for three months and have used her tools to help transition well with my new cross cultural team and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Highly recommend a chat and cup of tea with her to talk about learning new skills and coaching!

Veronica is such an amazing person. She helped me analyze my website before I launched it. I was so overwhelmed until we spoke. She is such a great listener and gave me an excellent website analysis. Her analysis and talk was exactly what I needed to gain the courage to press play on my business. Veronica is so gifted.

    I have loved my coaching sessions with Holly. Sometimes we have met in person, but we have also had several sessions over the phone. I admit, at first I was skeptical about doing coaching over the phone...but it was wonderful! Holly is an attentive listener and an insightful coach. She is good-humored, gracious, perceptive, and kind. I recommend Holly Schut 100%!

    Ray is an incredibly gifted life coach. His energy and passion are contagious. He is an incredible motivator and gives you the gentle kick you need to put the aspects of your life into action. Ray’s bits of wisdom, strategies, and philosophies always have me at the ready with a notepad. He guides his clients to reflect and act. After a session with him I am motivated to take the next steps—and know I have to because he will be checking in and holding me accountable. Personally, Ray has helped me with growing my business while balancing my personal life. He asks driving questions to get his clients clear on what they want out of their lives. For me, he helped me set daily, weekly, and monthly business goals and gave me a schedule and plan to use to achieve these goals. Additionally, he gave me great relationship advice—the importance of scheduling time for your relationships and ways to value them. He is a joy to work with! If you want leverage all of your awesomeness, gifts, and talents, Ray will help you make it happen! I didn’t know that I needed a life coach until I started working with Ray. I can’t recommend him enough. (I also love that he shares and gives through his YouTube videos. They are just a taste of all he has to offer.)

            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.

            Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
