As someone who had been in traditional talk therapy for many years, I was ready and in need of direct, real-time, constructive guidance and support to make some definitive changes in my life. Jerry's astute observations and her grounded, "down to earth" supportive persona along with her thought provoking (and at times challenging) assignments have helped me to achieve sustainable and positive changes in a relatively short period of time. I highly recommend Jerry and Inner Guru Coaching to anyone who is ready to find and tap into their inner strengths- Jerry will help you get there!

Our daughter had all the pieces in place for a successful collehe app - except for her sat score. She had 4 months to raise her score by 200 points. We knew she needed a tutor and Nick came highly recommended by her guidance counselor. The results were immediate. We are in his debt.

I had an amazing healing session today provided by Emily Elyshevitz. Through this session I was able to feel my chakras all light up with a burst of warm energy one right after the other. Green light poured from me and the tingling from the nerve damage in both arms subsided. I had the sensation of breathing in fresh cool air that was not present in the room prior while in the session. Upon completion, Emily provided me with loving and effective messages through reading my Akashic record and offered me much needed guidance and direction that cleared a path for me and continues to grow with each passing day. I highly recommend this mode of energy healing. As a patient who suffers on a daily basis with Lupus, Asthma, Rheumatoid Arthritis, nerve damage and various other ailments that require taking many medications, I can say with clarity that this experience of healing has provide me with the most relief I have felt in a decade.

After struggling for several months with internal issues like many of us, I decided to reach out for that extra help and push I needed. Hence why I chose Gabriella to be my life coach :) Unfortunately, I was one who could never acknowledge that I, myself, mattered just as much as everyone else and was a very passive aggressive girl. Allowing myself to continue being passive with conflicts and obstacles that I encountered I began building and bottling a lot of anger and felt the love I had for myself begin to diminish, but after I began to converse and work with Gabriella she really helped open my eyes and my voice. She is so easy to talk to but still helps dig deep to the core of ourselves where we can find the willpower within us to use as a daily tool in life. Gabriella is extraordinary, she connected with me so well and still helped me figure out how to balance certain aspects in my life whether it was from dealing with boyfriend issues to finding ways to do something FOR MYSELF. I have learned so much about getting along with life and being happy and loving with myself. I have learned that we all deserve to voice our emotions, we are equal and have the willpower to do better for ourselves in every way. Gabriella was the perfect guidance into starting to approach life in a more positive and healthy way. She truly is an amazing mentor, a very brilliant life coach, and a great friend. I will forever be thankful to have found her support.

Working with Jeanine was an absolute pleasure and it is remarkable to see how much positive transformation she has facilitated in my personal and professional life in just 6 weeks. It is evident that coaching is Jeanine’s passion and she has an incredible gift. Her style is incredibly personalized, consultative, thoughtful, and inspiring, and I found myself empowered by her ability to offer a plethora of resources and guidance. Now that we have completed coaching, I am particularly grateful for Jeanine’s conscious efforts to serve as a teacher while giving me the tools to create change in a gradual, sustainable way. Through meditation, intention-setting, and reflection, Jeanine has enabled me to achieve heightened self awareness, feeling more centered, present, and confident. Not only did Jeanine help me accomplish every one of my goals that I set for coaching, but I am now pursuing my dream career and ready to continue to use the tools that she provided to continue to evolve my aspirations while savoring the journey along the way.

Rick helped me through a very serious emotional and physical crisis with his precise insight, expert advice, and patience to reach a deeper level of understanding, clarity, and action. I was very despondent, highly stressed, confused, and fundamentally lost with a very complex and difficult series of personal and health problems to navigate. I am very grateful for the immediate specific meditations he suggested, as they helped to calm me, and focus on the positives he suggested that I could control. Rick's healing energy and sensitive intelligence helped to restore my belief in my strengths and gave me renewed ways of thinking through his detailed and highly acute analysis. I know that his ability to reveal the connections underlying these restrictions in me were effective in getting me to transform and feel more in control of my life. Rick's words of wisdom and ability to connect emotionally with me, had a profound effect on my healing. It is very rare to find someone capable of fluently reading a complicated situation without having to explain every detail. Rick is both perceptive in observation, and practical in solutions, he is direct, gets to the heart of the matter in an authentic innovative and caring approach. I am very grateful for the guidance and support I was fortunate to receive.

I had the extreme pleasure of working with Gillian at Shiftability Coaching. This was my first experience with any type of coaching. As a parent, I was completely distraught over a decision to have my young children enroll in public school in the suburbs or stay in the city and keep them in private school. Gillian's thought provoking questions and exercises allowed me to differentiate between my feelings of fear and instinct. Within 4 sessions I was able to make a decision with joy and confidence! Gillian is very kind, friendly and easy to talk to. I felt her guidance came from a place of genuine and authentic interest in my journey. I honestly cannot say enough about my experience. Thank you Gillian. I felt as though I was talking to a dear friend!

    My daughter is applying to college now and man am I in way over my head! Then my friend referred me to Nikki, who tutored her daughter for the SAT. She's been working closely with my daughter to put together her admissions essays. Even though that's all I asked for, she's been helping us to choose the best schools for our girl too. Way better than the school guidance counselor!

Janet Logan is an exceptional coach. She listens to your concerns, interests and input with regard to your ultimate goals. I recommend My Coaching Services to anyone searching for a new career or just in the job search market.

    At the age 47 and a little out of shape, I needed to get in top physical shape for a police academy. (In New Jersey the age limit for police officers is 35, but there is no age limit for correction and sheriffs dept)...... so I new if I wanted this job in corrections, I had to be ready, and if anybody has been to any police academy, you know it's a para military atmosphere. Screaming at you from day one, not caring about your feelings. Their only concerns is that you will be physically and mentally strong in law enforcement environment. The first Day I walked in, I talked to Bob about my mental and physical weaknesses, and he told me not to worry, and to listen to everything he had to say moving forward. I literally felt at ease from that moment on. Now it wasn't always easy, Bob pushed my mental and physical abilities beyond I thought I could ever reach, and after 6 months of running, sprinting,spinning,rowing,pull-ups, push-ups, weight training, jump roap, etc., I found myself in the best physical and mental shape of my life. Bob is more than just a trainer, he is a trainer, a life coach, a friend, (and even an enemy, lol when he had to be). I am proud to say that on July 12, 2016 I graduated as a New Jersey Juvenile Justice Commission corrections officer, cycle 29 and have been working in the jail ever since, and I couldn't be happier about my new career in law enforcement, but most of all, I couldn't of been happier about the choice I made walking into Bob's studio, because I know I could have never done it on my own. Sometimes in life we need a little help to get to the next level, and that's why I made the investment in myself to get to the next level with Bob Pelsang!!!!! Sincerely, S.C.O. T. Venezio

Marcus assisted her with Resume, Cover letter and interview prep, which is how she landed the job we both are currently now working. I came to Marcus looking for some life coaching, and I am happy to say I have more clarity on how to precisely move with intention in my life to acquire more happiness and certainty.

    Jessica guided me through my career search by helping me come up with a plan and how to deal with my feelings of impatience and uncertainty. With her help I was able to define my goals and I felt much more confident in my interviews. I liked that I was given homework after each session to develop tools that would unblock my mental and spiritual barriers and we would discuss the progress in subsequent sessions. With her expert coaching I've been able to formulate the tools and processes to facilitate listening to my inner voice and overcoming specific doubts. Jessica has a caring, fun demeanor which is a pleasure to work with. She doesn't "talk at" you and listens intently to what you have to say. I love that she gently challenges you to see things from a different perspective. She created a safe, comfortable environment to express myself freely. I always looked forward to our meetings. I left every session with a deeper level of self awareness and feeling energized to tackle any obstacle in my career search. I would highly encourage anyone looking for a Life or Career Coach to seek out her services.

    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

    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.

    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 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.   

    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.
