Recently I hired Ken to develop a resume that will allow me to position myself for greater opportunities. Not only was Ken able to showcase my skills, but he also served as a career coach. I believe his help and guidance will help me land the right opportunity in my field of expertise. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone looking for guidance.

I hired Jane as a Life Coach because I am going through a life transition and seeking a new path that reflects the growth I have managed over the last several. I spent many years in an emotionally abusive marriage where my feelings were dismissed, my dreams squelched and my intellect ridiculed. As a single parent in the ten years between now and then, I had little time to pursue dreams or new careers, but I was away from the bullying and able to finally begin to blossom and to value myself. Now my children are grown and I'm ready to take the next step, but I realized that I could not do it alone. The conditioning was still too strong. I wanted someone to help, to bounce things off of, to give me perspective and to keep me from falling into ambivalence and indecision in the face of that inner critic. Jane has been that person. She has a wonderful combination of kindness and straightforwardness. She spent our first session just listening, giving her full attention to where I had been and where I was at. The validation of that alone, was worth gold to me. She has the ability to listen in a way that is deep and that helps you hear yourself, and trust yourself. We are still working towards my goals, which she is helping me identify and stay true to. The more I work with her the more solid and confident I become in my dreams and the quieter that echo of the bully becomes. I highly recommend Jane for anybody who is in a transition period of their life--especially if you have been the victim of abuse--and is looking for someone who can provide support, structure and firm but gentle guidance. She never, never tells you what to believe or who you are or what you want. She helps you find your own way there.

Jim is a wonderful coach! I highly recommend him as he takes the time to listen to you and he really cares about your outcome- it shows that he is passionate about his work! He and I have had about 5 sessions so far and he is helping me see more clearly what I want from my life and work. It's a process, and I sometimes feel all over the place- but Jim can really get to the core and ask you, "When you get this (and you will!) do you really want it, and why?" So success is a reality, and I feel I'm taking charge of my life, career and happiness! I'm thankful to have found such a great life coach in Jim, he's professional yet down to earth and I look forward to our next session!

I was initially nervous to meet with a life coach, however, after meeting with Jane I realized it was the best decision I have made for myself in a long time. She creates a plan to help address your personal and professional goals and genuinely cares about her clients. I would highly recomend booking an appointment with Jane for career goals, life coaching skills, or any additional professional aspirations.

After I worked with Michael I felt joy, peace, and insightful. Walking into Mach for the first time, I felt a sense of comfort. I left the business of life outside of the door. I would recommend Mach to anyone who needs spiritual healing and some insight.

Marc has been wonderful for my teen son! Glad he enjoys going to meet and seems to be a more positive impact than dwelling on negativity in a therapist office.

Geoffrey has an amazing gift. He is a truly talented healer and lightworker. I felt so empowered and positive after our session. Geoffrey helped me to visualize goals and taught me the action steps to achieving them. I could see it so clearly as you guided me through each timeline event, as if I was really there. The techniques he used were very calming, relaxing, and put me in the meditative state needed to see myself in the moment of each goal and realizing them. Geoffrey gave me the tools needed to take this a step further into practicing visualization and positive manifestation on my own, until all my goals are achieved. I highly recommend Geoffrey to anyone struggling to manifest their dreams into reality.

I first met with Sharon a few months ago to find a job closer to home. At that time, I was unclear about my core strengths and assets. Over the spring and summer, Sharon Harris has provided concrete tools and exercises that have pinpointed my strengths and talents and has opened up a whole new world to me. She continues to be on the look-out on my behalf for employment closer to home. Sharon is professional, her enthusiasm is contagious and she is an absolute joy to work with.

Everyone talks about work life balance when the reality is our work is integrated into our life, not balanced with it. Pete's ability to add value in everything I brought to him, even if it was not something he had experience in, makes him a great asset to have on you team! Pete helped me with a variety of different projects and situation in my professional role, volunteer role, and personal life. Pete's greatest value to me was his ability to speak into any area of my life and add value or give me clarity. Conversations with him helped me process through tough leadership decision at work and helped me create better personal disciplines in my life. If you are looking for help in one area of your life, Pete can help. If you are willing to open up about every area of you life...hold on because Pete will give you the candid feedback to take everything to the next level!

About

Being a teen is tough, it always has been. Their bodies are growing faster than their brains. Some of their body parts are growing faster than others. There's pressure for grades, sports, sex, drinking or drugs, and all the things that goes along with growing up. It's always been hard. Now, it's all online. You don't do cyber bullying, sex, and drugs unless you're addicted, depressed, or anxious. Role models used to promote, "Just say no." and "Stranger danger". Now, they're Miley Cyrus and Justin Beiber. Divorce rate is over 50%, and kids really don't know where to turn. I'm not saying that I have all the answers, but I believe in talking to our kids, and letting them know that they are worth more than a cheap picture or a quick high. Peer pressure and bullying are real, but when kids are taught, that it will end, that they do have a future outside that building they call school, and that they do have options and self-worth. Maybe, just maybe, drug rates, suicide rates, and mass shootings won't feel like their only options.

I motivate others to be the best they can be. I give life tools and skills to cope with loss and suffering, bullying and stressful situations to help the cope in a positive way. The three main goals I want someone to learn about themselves is what I learned from life, such as the following: * Treat others how you want to be treated * Love yourself * Accept your erroneous zones and learn from them and move forward in life The main idea of Mathenia's Positive Corner is sometimes life will bring you to a halt, and you have to be the one to say "enough is enough" to truly make a positive change in your life.

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.
