My goal was to move further up the ladder in my professional career. I was stalled and felt like a writer with writers block. Upon meeting Mr. Stone, his listening to me, where I was and where I want to go and then assimilating down what the fundamentals were that I need to build on and show me how - was an eye opener. He does what few people can do: Listen and then create, execute and deliver results. He was a life changer for me and someone I go to periodically now and then when I am unsure of which direction or action to take.

Keep up the great work....Sincerely, Dr. Tamiko Smith, MBA

After years of devoting myself training in preparation for a professional career, I found myself without a “plan b” and unsure of how to make a living. I was so fortunate to connect with Judy. Judy invested her time and effort to help me collect all of my thoughts, discover and define my goals, and together we compiled an organized step-by-step plan that made the whole process super manageable and straightforward. I have never been so productive as I am now, after working with her, and it has carried into all areas of my life. I feel confident now that I can do anything I set my mind to, using the tools that Judy has so graciously provided me - I feel like I’m on a roll!

I met with Jerry today for personal and career coaching and it was a really great experience. It was my first meeting and I think it went very well. It's true what others have said, the meeting really feels more like a conversation than any other type of therapy and it really gets to the root of what you want to accomplish and defined steps on how to achieve your goals. I left feeling refreshed and with a very positive outlook.

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.

Scott has been an invaluable therapist for me for a few years now. I've gained so many strengths and I've been able to make so many changes under his care and counseling. More recently, if it weren't for him, my situation may have eaten me alive and he was there literally every step of the way to make sure that didn't happen. His methods of therapies are wonderful. He's generous, professional, relatable, relaxing, reliable, consistent, and punctual. My favorite, though, is when he's leading into a breakthrough. He's direct enough to get you there without needing to be too "psycho-babbly". I recommend Scott 12 out of 10 times!

Laura is a very knowledgeable, caring, empathetic and insightful career professional. She picked up on my character and personality very quickly and made me feel very comfortable, bringing out the best of my potential. In two coaching sessions, Laura helped me prepare for an interview by providing a lot of valuable tips, drawing on her own experiences as a legal recruiter and boosting my confidence to succeed in an interview. I would highly recommend a coaching session with Laura, whether it would be one of a professional nature or personal.

I am very grateful to have found My Coaching Services. I forwarded my resume for review and editing. The results of my resume are incredible.

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.

Sharon has been my coach for about a year now and I don't know where I would be without her - she has helped me adopt several new positive habits that make me feel happier, healthier, more in control of my life, and more confident. She has been a total blessing in my life and I am so grateful. Growing up with ADHD, my room was always a disaster, it was difficult for me to maintain structure, follow-through on things, keep up with my calendar, get assignments in on time, and plan ahead. Sharon tackled each of these areas with me and was able to pinpoint psychological blocks that consistently kept me from reaching my goals. She also sent me several useful resources. Sharon is an incredibly compassionate person and coach. During my journey with her, she consistently encouraged me, believed in me, and never gave up on me. She was literally with me every step of the way and checked in with me via text and phone calls quite frequently. Now, about a year later, Sharon has guided me to establish several positive routines that have truly improved the quality of my life. I now feel capable of doing things I never thought I could do before and have tried new things with her encouragement. I have seen results with Sharon, both immediately and over the long-term, with regards to my physical and mental health, my academic career, my personal and home life, my career path, and my organizational skills. Don't pass up the opportunity to work with Sharon- it would be hard to find anyone more committed to making a positive difference in your life.

I worked with Georgina just as my career was taking off. It was hard for me to understand why I felt so stressed, just as everything I wanted was happening. Mangers, industry people, they were all reaching out and I found myself incredibly anxious as I sat in the big board rooms with these influential people. Georgina didn’t waste a second. By my second session, I already felt more empowered to handle what was happening to me and even more importantly, capable of winning in my music relationships. Simple tips gave me so much confidence and Georgina helped me realize my potential

        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.
