My husband and I went to Vladimire for marriage counseling. Vladimire is very easy to talk to and provide insightful and nonjudgemenyal input in a gentle way. She doesnt forget about you after your session....she messages small messages of positivity and advice in between sessions which somehow always seem to apply. She has suggested journaling assignments between sessions which can be difficult, thought provoking and groundbreaking if you decide to put in the effort. She is culturally empathetic. She is also flexible and accommodating to busy schedules. She never let's you leave unresolved just because time is up. You end up feeling like you are sharing with a good friend who cares for both of your well beings as individuals and as a whole equally.

Her wealth of knowledge in the field of education, counseling and "best practices" is exceptional. She is easy to work with and inspires any project that you may need her expertise for. Keep up the great work....Sincerely, Dr. Tamiko Smith, MBA

    Kim has been an absolute blessing to work with! She has so much compassion for her clients and genuinely cares for your well-being.

    Here are the features I appreciated the most while working with Josh for my first job search in NYC. 1) Professional advice based on his own experiences and research 2) Personal, and very thoughtful support throughout your job search process 3) Global perspective thanks to his international background Josh is a very strategic, optimistic, and kind person who will be on your side throughout your journey. He encourages and motivates you for numerous of new challenges and precious encounters. Above all, I really liked his approach where he listens to you carefully before he gives you specific and super useful advice. There is no right or wrong answer with each person's job search. But one thing I can tell everyone without any hesitation is, choose a mentor like Josh and he will light up your path. Because the path can be very long and it is not always very clear when you are looking to step-up in your career, and your life.

    I sought out a coach because I was looking for guidance on ways to improve my career. I was experiencing a lack of fulfillment and needed help defining my professional goals and strategies for achieving them. Chris and I were able to set up our first meeting within one week of our initial call which I appreciated. We have had two meetings so far, and I can tell already that he is very astute. He helped me define my core challenges and goals within the first hour and we're already working on a plan for moving forward. He is personable and very encouraging. I would absolutely recommend him.

    Najami unconditionally supports me in accessing more of my inner wisdom. She's strong, grounded and nonjudgemental. As a result of working with her, I have greater clarity around how I would like to shape my career and where I feel called to serve. She is truly my champion and believes in me. And I love that she also offers a lot of great self care and beauty suggestions!

    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

    My experience with the Mcknight Coaching Lab was extremely satisfactory. David has helped me be more confident and assertive, not just in my career, but also in my personal life. He taught me the skills to go after the things I want in life. It was after he helped me revamp my resume that I got a call to interview for my last position. Even when I got discouraged while looking for an apartment, it was David who encouraged me and gave me the determination not to give up, and the next day I found one. David is able to give the needed encouragement and support, yet not get overly involved in your personal life. He is always extremely professional, while being warm and personable......David himself also has an impressive resume, being employed by fortune 500 companies, and educated by top universities......

    I cannot get enough time with Kim and her phenomenal coaching. She has taught me so much about bringing my whole self to every part of my life, and has given me invaluable advice that spans across my career, personal passions, and relationships. I find I'm often able to pass her advice along to my friends, too, making me more empathetic and helpful in my closest relationships. Every time I go to the WSDM, I feel like I'm getting exactly the advice I need to feel inspired about my life. I would recommend Kim to anyone who is looking to become their best self in every way.

    Stefanie is a life saver, not just your coach or counselor. She helped me through the longest, hardest stretch of my life and I came out on the other end a full version of me with realized dreams and a long list of successes... and I couldn’t have done it without Stefanie of Risk Productions & Media. Her experience is insurmountable. I originally went to Stefanie for her spiritual counseling as I was having issues with my career, finances, grief & relationship problems. Years later I decided to start my own company and I knew who to go to. Stefanie of Risk Productions & Media is a huge asset to have for your company or for your personal life. -MR

    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.

    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

    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 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 it cost to hire a career coach?

    A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.
