I have been working with Tom this past 6 months on significant health and life goals. My doctor said I made so much progress I was no longer pealing the onion, in fact I was now working from a new paradigm altogether! Tom's guidance and coaching has truly made an impact and lasting change. I recommend him hightly.

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.

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.

I talked with many coaches, therapists, and trainers. Aaron and WellThrive Elite are the best. Aaron helped me so much. He knows a lot about many things and helped me in many areas of my life. He really listens but also gives good practical coaching. WellThrive Elite helped me with fitness and coaching to lose weight, tone up, manage stress, and look better for dating and self confidence. So many types of fitness that I was never bored. He also coached me to figure out who is the right person for me to date and which career I would like. Such in depth information of different careers. What a life saver. Best personal trainer and best life coach for so many things. Thumbtack seems like a good site. But more than one coach told me that Thumbtack charges the coach a high fee when the customer messages the coach. I would just call him. I highly recommend. Here is his number: 646-535-4384. He talked to me for over an hour without charging me. He talks a lot, but all good information and definitely worth it!

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’ve attended a class by Debbie and have met her for numerous one-on-one consultations and blessings. Debbie is an excellent listener and healer. The amount of knowledge she can provide is limitless and her calming and loving disposition allows you to open up your heart and mind to move forward, even in the most stressful circumstances. I am genuinely grateful for her guidance and support during my spiritual journey. I will continue seeing Debbie and encourage others to reach out to her as well.

Patricia was a Godsend for me. I started my business two years ago and was struggling on how to make the next step. Her insight and ability to come up with a plan to further my business goals proved invaluable. I think the key to her ability to help me is that she really listens. She understood what I needed to do, even if I could not articulate that clearly to myself. She was then able to use her experience and expertise to set me on the right course. Patricia is very personable and easy to work with. I would heartily recommend her for anyone who is looking for guidance in their professional or personal life...or both!

    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.

    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

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
