I hired Craig as a career coach, had my first session with him yesterday. He is very motivated and want to see you succeed. It is a team effort, he will put in as much as you do. Feeling excited and looking forward to working with him and see some rapid results.
Rita is a public speaker who captivates her audience! She is a dynamic, motivational speaker and exceptional life coach!
Tom is my life coach for over 10 years now! He is always available or makes himself available when needed. He has helped me with finances, work, business and relationship advise. Tom has been a great motivator for when I needed that extra push. I recommend him to anyone.
Cross training with Karl has taken my body to the next level. My strength and endurance levels increased tremendously. Not only did I lose weight, I feel my strongest ever. I couldn't even do regular push ups before! Karl's workouts are both fun and challenging so your body never gets bored. If you want to take your fitness to the next level and get your best body ever, I highly recommend Coaching by Karl.
It was a pleasure working with Justin. I moved forward with my career. I got a new job and improved my communication skills. I feel more confident on networking events and professional meetings. I am ready to create the kind career I always wanted. I highly recommend the Cool Comminicator!!!
Gabriella is more than a life coach/therapist, she's a friend! Best experience ever. I love her! She's helped me beyond what I ever expected.
Michel truly understands how the teenage boy brain works and over the last 4 years has helped both of my boys navigate some rough times all while supporting me as their mom. His background in academia and life coaching along with his therapy approaches, provided my college son with better self-understanding and skills to push through his struggles. After trying several other therapists who he just couldn’t relate to, my younger son blossomed under his help & guidance and is now more self-confident, motivated and sees a future that is worth working towards. In his words, Michel “helped me get going on life.”
There was an instant comfort I felt with Judy. I had never gone to therapy before and she put me at ease almost instantly. I started having sessions with her at a really difficult time in my professional career, and there were times when I thought I was doing everything I could, but she helped me realize there were more options and other avenues of achieving my goals that I hadn't even explored. Our sessions together really helped me through some very dark times in my life and when I couldn't afford therapy anymore after I lost my job and health insurance plan, she continued to send me text messages just to make sure I was doing ok. She is incredibly thoughtful and has given me valuable tools for handling anxiety and difficult work relationships.
I truly enjoyed working with Brent. I feel like he really takes the time to listen deeply into what you are saying. I felt heard and understood, which is something I don't say often. We only worked together for a few months, but it was a great few months. He always maintains eye contact and shows great care and compassion. We shared an amazing moment during our work together where I felt like he truly understood where I was coming from and I began to cry. This is something that I don't mind sharing because it just shows how much Brent really takes the time to make you feel comfortable and heard. I highly recommend Brent as a coach.
Patricia Diesel's Life coaching approach and unique one-on-one partnership offered a different technique. Her phone coaching with my decision to invest time to a new way of thinking, preparing and taking action not only brought great success for emptying my storage unit on time, but a transformation in me happened as well. I became empowered and applied the reality of my abilities, values, and accountability to repeatedly bring about a positive result. I take away from this a tool box of skills unique to my strengths, abilities and mindset for success is ready to bring out for all future projects and goals. Her instruction was wonderful but it was her encouragement that brought life to it. Thank you, Patricia!
Insightful, powerful and eye opening. I would be separated right now if I hadn't given coaching with Gillian a chance. It's a fresh approach that opens your eyes to how you are being blocked and simple solutions that are right in front of you but somehow haven't been considered...my wife and I are communicating so much better and are firmly on a new path, and really excited about it...awesome! - Bill
I have been working with Nicole of NEP Consulting, and my experience has been amazing. She has deep knowledge and sincere integrity in the service she is providing. Nicole has taught me to think outside the box when it comes to my job search, and she has also opened new communicative skills that has changed the way I approach, and interact with potential employers. Nicole is providing the advantage I need to be successful as I transition into a new career.
excellent experience very intelligent and professional looking forward to more work with slyder coaching
Kevin Burns has a depth of knowledge, compassion and understanding that I haven’t seen and or experienced in a long time. He gave me lots of personal advice to help me get “unstuck” at a time I needed it most. With his advice I was able to turn things around. His words came from a deep place and has helped me “change course” in many areas of my life. He’s warm and very professional and has a good heart. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking assistance. He’s an amazing ‘Life Coach’ ...Keith Gitens
First of all Kim is amazing! She made me feel extremely comfortable and pushed me to ask questions that led to new ideas for my career. She has real passion for helping people reach their goals. She did an amazing job identifying my strengths and weaknesses- and how to work around them! Since working with Kim, I can confidently say I am more successful in my career path planning process! I would definitely recommend K Career & Life Coaching to anyone!
When I first found Paul, I was (and am still) working at a grocery chain indicative only to the state of Arizona called Fry's Food & Drug Stores, owned by Kroger. I was (and, again, still am) extremely unhappy with the way things are run as they are run by corporate greed (I just won't get into it), and I was lost in where my life was going. I looked up career coaches online and came across Thumbtack, just to find Paul's ad, looked it over, and sent him a request. I think that it is safe to say that the $400 that he charges per month is probably the best investment that I have ever put forth into my life as he has helped me tremendously to find what I really enjoy in life and where I want to be in the future! He has helped me open my eyes to a new way of life; he has helped me learn how to relax a lot easier; I would absolutely recommend him to ANYONE who asks for a career coach! I think that I have found a profoundly new friend and advocate in steering anyone back on the right path that they are looking to go down! Thank you so much, Paul, for ALL of the help!
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
I am so thankful that I found Evan Kirstein. He has been my ADHD coach for the last 5 months, and my life has taken a turn for the much better. Thanks to his deep understanding of ADHD and his understated communication style, I feel like I have regained a strong sense of inner trust and self-reliance, and I am learning to live up to my potential on a daily basis. He was insightful and also knew when to talk and when to listen. We worked on self discipline of practicing music, work and diet. I enjoyed our sessions and have benefited from them.
My experiences with Rick began a few years ago, when he began training/coaching me at a martial arts school where we practiced. I post this because simply knowing him has motivated me to be a better person in life. In the school, his directions were clear, concise. I liked that he was genuine, and never explained anything that he had not experienced himself. One trait that made him such a great coach, was his ability to detach, and take a look at challenges and obstacles from an outside perspective, that others may not be able to see. I have never seen him back down from an extreme challenge. Other traits that I noticed about him were his authentic positivity, and a ferocious determination to help others accomplish their goals, while at the same time being humble enough to listen to others and learn. I later came to realize that he is this way because he thrives on helping others perform to the best of their ability, and because he cares. I can always count on Rick, and I trust him. I'm fortunate that our paths somehow crossed in life. -Enrique Luna
Robin Gardner is an amazing and highly intuitive and experienced coach and knows how to get to the heart of the matter. She has given me tools to help me handle my core issues that no one has ever addressed and did it quickly, gently and effectively. I highly recommend her if you have blocks in your life that are holding you back from being your best, happiest or most effective self.
Very good. Highly recommended
