Maggie has been an amazing support to me as a life coach for several years. She truly cares about the well being of individuals. For me, she has been a constant emotional sounding board who has helped me work through several difficult life challenges and changes. From family issues to grief and many other instances, Maggie has helped me move through these with an encouraging perspective. Not only does she actively listen, she has a vast and diverse background from which she pulls to empathize and give objective advice. I could not ask for a better experience.

Cathy was an incredible coach. I've had several different coaches over time, and she was particularly strong and helping me have deep insights quickly. I always left each session with a tremendous amount of energy relating to new and novel ideas that I was passionate about moving forward with. She also does an impressive job of documenting and sharing wonderful ideas in her blog, which I would highly recommend.

Give yourself a gift, actually the greatest gift you are likely to give yourself, and stop reading my review and call Tim immediately. since you are looking at reviews, you are getting serious about changing your life. Tim will be your partner in that change. Tim's approach is total immersion. he changes the workout every time, makes it fun (even at 5am), and is engaged and interested in you as a human being. He supports you during the day with text messages and phone calls. Seriously, calling him will be the best move you can make if you are serious about changing your life for the better. I hope to see you in the gym...

I feel anyone looking for guidance from an unbiased individual, with hands on experience from a clinical perspective and a broad range of community based knowledge to ensure you will have insight on how to make your life more focused and help you build self-awareness that will allow you to notice when you have fallen off the path you've been creating for yourself, on your path to self-actualization and provides you with the tools to make effective corrections along the way using effective critical thinking skills that you can use in any situation life has presented....you will have missed out on a life changing opportunity! Take it from someone who has experience the life changing effect of her guidance...don't let this opportunity pass you by, simply because you'll regret it for years to cone.

    I met Kelley in our Ipec coach training program. She was my peer coach, and was par none. I had some concerns that she could help me, given the differences in our age, experience, professional background, spirituality and family dynamics. Kelley helped me more than years of therapy could. My dream would be to work with her in a coaching capacity. Working with Kelley as my coach was transformative. We met when I was trying to recover from a series of dramatic and tragic losses. Through Kelley's coaching I had permission to find my voice and to find ways to heal and move forward. Little by little I have gotten my life back. I love Kelley, and if anyone reading this has the opportunity to work with her you, too, will find she will help you move forward, transform your life, and to see your world through a different lens. She's a great coach with great talents. Susan Klieman

    My session with Stephanie was surprisingly revealing. She led me to look at various priorities in my life from different angles, and this helped me to evaluate what I was trying to achieve and how I actually felt about my life. I would recommend her enthusiastically to anyone who wished to improve or change their life experience.

    She was a big help for me when I attempted to help my granddaughter learn simple words and numbers. She is a Downs syndrome child. Miss Marullo's suggestions were very helpful for me and the child has been improving! I am grateful for the help!

    Coach Annie was absolutely wonderful. She coached me right through some obstacles that were standing in the way of progress, with her thought provoking questions, and focused attention on me.Through listening as she asked pertinent questions, I was thoroughly convinced I could accomplish my goals with a fresh new perspective. I wanted to get a certification and Annie coached me through the process of following through on what I wanted to accomplish. she also held me accountable to what I said I would do. As of this time all the material has been submitted. for that certification. Thanks Anne. There were no disappoints for me, just sincere appreciation for her forthright coaching.

    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.
