I really needed an upgrade on my old outdated resume, and after researching and reading reviews I contacted Breakthrough Coaching & Beyond. I worked with Lisa on what I was looking for, what items I would like prominently displayed, and what items I may consider letting fall off of the resume. She was very professional, and was genuinely driven by what it was going to take to have me satisfied with the job. She exceeded all my expectations and then some with the resume she presented me. I joked with her that even I would hire the guy on this paper. I got a chance to use it for an job opportunity at my current company, and landed the job almost immediately. Our HR recruiter even made the comment that I have a very impressive work history while looking over my resume. I can't thank Lisa enough for her work that has already opened up doors for me.

I am very thankful for my time working with Joel. He was my career coach a few years ago and the insight, confidence, and direction he gave me are very helpful. You could really tell that he is passionate about what he does and I felt like he actually cared about me. I didn't use his resume service, but next time I need one done I definitely will. I highly recommend Joel if you are looking for a career coach or life coach or even mentor or anything like that who actually cares.

Bennett has been amazing! I am brand new to working out, and he has made taking the plunge much less intimidating. He coaches on everything from nutrition to lifestyle and does a great job of explaining why we're doing particular exercises a certain way. He plans each workout differently and always keeps things engaging. I can't recommend him enough.

I chose to work with Todd Smith for many reasons. His free interview is a nice touch and shows an ethical commitment to allowing potential clients to meet him and interview him before spending money. It is also a nice touch that his fee is reasonable! I sought relationship coaching with my wife after working with a counselor that was a good listener but offered very little direction. So we decided to try the coaching approach. Todd offers the best of both worlds - having the knowledge, insight, and background of an experienced counselor and the skill to motivate, teach, and promote change of a life coach. We feel so fortunate to have found him and highly recommend him to those who are highly motivated to do the challenging work of change and growth!

I have known Judith for over ten years as a family friend and life coach. She is a most remarkable, talented woman who has earned my complete confidence as a professional. Judith has the life experience, the education, the spiritual insights, the desire to teach, and the love of humanity that appeals to me. I worked with her as a client for about eight months this past year. We worked through each session that consisted of review of learned material and presentation of new material. As a result, I was aware of of my progress in learning how to live a more balanced, peaceful life. Her training has helped me in many ways, and I recommend her as one of the most powerful quality of life changes I could ever make.

Matthew really listened to wag at my goals were and customized a plan that worked with my lifestyle. I love that he didn’t try to fit me into a box/category he kept asking for feedback measuring my results and mindset and tweaking the plan so that it was manageable and attainable with my daily life. Matt was always accessible, prompt to respond. I love our workouts, challenges and food prep!! I got the results I wanted but even better I’ve created sustainable habits that me and my family love!!

Working alongside Anna Grimm in providing Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, I’ve been made aware of what a gifted therapist she is. She’s smart and thoughtful; she listens well and gets clients to hear themselves; she’s engaging and 100% present; she’s kind and humane; she’s funny. And her compassion and her empathy cannot be missed. Anna meets you where you are in your life; she exemplifies caring and the desire to help you move forward and work through the issues and struggles that life has given you. And her photographer’s eye becomes the one that brings insight to the therapist/client relationship. If you’re looking for a therapist, Anna will not disappoint you.

Devon knows how to reach her clients in an organic way. She is very good at listening to what you would like help with and then on the spot and also preparing for the next session with quality coaching strategies. Her heart is in the right place and if I needed to refer someone to a life coach, she would be it!

I consulted with Leonard when I was at a critical point in my career: I was facing both a new job opportunity and a salary/role negotiation in my current position. Leonard helped me sort through my options and, most importantly, helped me figure out the best scenario for ME. Now, just a few weeks after my coaching with Leonard, I'm making more money and doing the work I really want to do!

    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.
