I have worked for a non-profit organization for 26 years, and recently my new boss asked for my resume. At first,I was totally over whelmed and didn't know where to start. I contacted Syreeta a few days before my resume was due, and we talked a bit and she asked questions, and the rest is history. In a nut shell she provided me with a professional and top-notch resume in just a few days. I am absolutely impressed with my resume and pretty sure that I'll use her services in the future. Also, I want to say that Syreeta was very positive and reassuring the entire time that we worked together. She also met EVERY deadline. Moreover, I highly recommend SW Coaching & Consulting. Thanks again!

I was concerned that hiring a life coach would be too costly to help me past anything beyond the earliest stages of my project. But Judy’s coaching services are structured in such a way that I I can engage her not just for helping me with short term goals, but for helping me achieve long term goals as well. That knowledge, paired with Judy’s skilled and insightful guidance, has allowed me to finally trade the paralyzing sense of being overwhelmed with the clarity of having concrete, achievable goals. Judy’s particular intelligence makes her an invaluable coach for anyone who is undertaking a sprawling, intellectually intimidating, creative endeavor.

Tom has the unique ability to provide Heath coaching and life coaching. This prompted me to return to him after 12 months away. He is very prompt, very in tune with my needs, and look forward to teaming with him to make great strides this year.

I am so grateful that this amazing healer was put in my path. In our few sessions, I have been given a sense of well-being using tools from Jacquie and her healing work with my spiritual team that I have been seeking for decades. Jacquie is very intuitive but it seemed that every time we worked together, the results were better and better. From our first session, I felt a sense of feeling lighter, more connected to my higher self and able to ask the questions and receive responses to continue our work. She is a healer. I am so impressed with her skill and dedication to me individually. I hope you will give yourself the gift of experiencing the healing Jacquie has to offer. You will be so glad you did.

Having met Dr. Anna is one of the best things that's ever happened to me. I had been in therapy for over a decade with various counselors, but now I know the difference between a therapist and a Therapist. She is warm, compassionate and creative, no two sessions are the same, and she seems to have an incredible repertoire of techniques at her disposal. She is always goal-oriented, makes sure that results are really happening, and always explains everything so clearly as you have never heard and never understood before. She has the greatest sense of humor, her academic knowledge is amazing, and her fine-tuned sensitivity boarders on the mystical. Yet she is always funny, down to earth, and real. I've never laughed so much in therapy sessions before! :-) I am so grateful, ... because I am finally discovering what "free" and "happy" really mean!

I started with Tommy in December but didn't try his alkaline vegan diet till January. I'm not a true vegan like him but I'm trying the best I can. I lost 14 pounds since I started with Tommy and he has taught me so much about food and what it does to your body. I recommend his service (coaching & training) cause it goes hand in hand.

Gabriella is amazing. She helped me gain the courage to leave my ex and supported me all the times I failed. She was never judgemental and has always given me the tools for me to realize what I have to do. She has this amazing way of making you realize things for yourself. I can honestly say Im truly the happiest I've ever been. Not because my life changed magically but because of the way I deal with things and handle things - all because of her. On a side note, there have been times when I haven't been regular about my sessions and I've texted her asking if she could talk -- and she has made it happen...sometimes within 15 minutes! She truly does care about her clients and is such a wonderful life coach.

I found Jeanine quite by chance one day listening to a podcast. Something in her voice and approach resonated with me and I sent her an email. Cut to eight weeks later and I am bang slap in the middle of a successful and fulfilling JNC coaching course! Due to my location we hold weekly calls which work really well. It feels so good to be doing this coaching not only because I am accessing so many new tools/techniques/literature and expanding my learning but also because I see a positive shift in my daily life. Like anything it requires commitment and you have to want to do the work. Jeanine is the one who gets you to where you need to be to do this. She is uplifting, positive, soothing, caring and switched on! An amazingly skilled coach who works at lightening speed and tunes in effortlessly (or so it seems) to you! I would highly recommend anyone who wants to invest some time into their learning and self development to take a chance and engage with Jeanine - you won't regret it.

Brent is a good communicator and has always been very professional in his demeanor, he is always on time and easy to schedule appointments with. I was a little nervous when I went to my first appointment, but have gotten much more comfortable over time. Brent is very present in the room, he gives me a lot of eye-contact, and shows genuine compassion. While it can sometimes be difficult, the work that I do with Brent has allowed me to get to know myself better, and has significantly improved the relationships I value most in my life. His office, while very simple and unadorned, has a warm atmosphere, and is very conveniently located. I have found my work with Brent to be very valuable, and highly recommend him as a coach.

Patricia' mentoring helped me to significantly achieve professional and personal growth through her knowledge and expertise. Her one-on-one coaching provided strategies for me to implement to reach my goals professionally. Her trust and insight was invaluable to me to achieve a positive work-life balance and a job satisfaction!

Breaking into the industry is hard for any aspiring actor. It is tenfold harder for disabled actors. Liz has never tempered my goals. If anything, she pushes me further. She doesn't believe that, because of the way I walk, I have to accept being a character actor. She chooses scenes geared specifically to show casting directors, agents, and producers that I can be a leading man. She offers more than support. Her criticism may be tough, but it is always constructive and well-intentioned. She expects a lot from me because the industry expects a lot from actors. She expects me to be on time because the industry expects actors to be on set on time. She expects to see rehearsed monologues and scene work because the industry expects actors to walk on set ready to perform, not to work, the scene. Under her coaching, I got representation. I have been asked to audition for professional theater companies like the Manhattan Theater Company. I also have landed roles in two short films and an off-off broadway production. 2018 looks ever brighter. If you have the chance to work with Casting Solutions Casting, do it. You will walk away from the experience knowing what to expect from the industry and, more importantly, knowing to how to land work as a professional actor.

After working with James Wightman, I went from being on the verge of homelessness to making $2,300 in 3 days. James helped me heal deep wounds from my past that were causing me to experience an emotional and financial breakdown. Using his coaching techniques, James helped me release the shame of my past and move through previously debilitating trauma memories. Thanks, James, for being a phenomenal coach!

Carrie is everything you'd want in a work/life coach. She helped provide me the inward reflection, outward structure and accountability I needed to get to the next level. I'm finally doing the things I've been thinking/dreaming about doing for years. I really wish I worked with Carrie earlier and got this process going. I'd be much further along today than I am however I'm happy I got started, which is the problem for most of us. Carrie can help you get out of your own way and on the path to reaching and exceeding goals. I couldn't provide a strong recommendation.

I found Evan’s coaching service to be helpful in my job search. In my situation, I felt completely stuck. Evan helped get me "un-stuck" by asking all the right questions allowing me to come to the conclusion on my own time and in my own way. He watched me go through all the iterations of, "do I want this?" "is this right for me?" "whose interest am I serving here?" until I was finally able to conclude it was time to move on. When it came time to apply, I got excellent coaching on my resume and cover letter as well as my approach to the search. I even felt confident enough to cold-call some employers and eventually took a job with one of those who wasn't advertising an open position but just happened to be looking. Evan has an easy personal communication style. After the initial awkwardness that comes with bearing your fears to someone you barely know, he quickly became a trusted adviser. I have ADHD, and need structure and deadlines to keep me accountable. Sometimes, I bristle at this structure and deadlines and push back. But Evan never let me forget that I am ultimately holding myself accountable to myself. Setting deadlines and creating structure just became a part of our regular discussions. That was immensely helpful! Most importantly, Evan was able to meet me where I am mentally and emotionally until we could walk together toward my goals. You can probably tell that I'm a fan. I would recommend him to friends and colleagues especially those looking to make a change and want to put their best foot forward, be it personal or professionally.

Victoria, is quite a talent! My wife and I met with her for about 45 minutes and she presented me with a handout script for me to read out loud and then critique me over and over again until I improved somewhat, as it’s still a work in progress but I think she’s well worth the money.

I recently started a new job which has started leading to some anxiety. I felt like it was starting to affect other areas of my life, at which point a friend recommend Gerard. We had some initial scheduling challenges, but once we got past that, everything else went extremely well. In just a few sessions, I began to feel less stressed out about everything, and overall more self-confident not only at work, but in other areas of life too. Overall, I've had a great experience with Gerard, and I'd highly recommend him to anyone dealing with anxiety or any life challenges.

I’ve always been intimidated with working out. As a professional body builder, she knows how to scale workouts to all levels. She’s very knowledgeable, compassionate, and fun to workout with. I lead a very busy life and she is always working to accommodate the needs of all her clients. I’ve been working out with her for 6 weeks now and I see small changes in how my clothes fit and surely a lot more definition. With the meal plan she has me on, I see my belly become smaller and smaller on a weekly basis! Only 6 weeks in and I’m super satisfied! I’ll add pics on 6 months and 12 months!

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.
