Thomas has been and continues to be much more than just a highly trained personal fitness trainer! He's a life coach, he's an ear to listen, and a friend to lift you up. Extremely kind and adaptable to your fitness goals. I put my complete trust in him to lead me on my fitness journey. His methods and programs are suited to you. His knowledge of the body and its mechanics, muscle strength, nutrition, and overall fitness knowledge is amazing. Making sure you get the most out of each and every movement he spots and corrects placement, motions, etc... so that your doing exercises/drills correctly. Genuinely interested in your wellbeing and success! He humbly states that everything achieved is because of me; and there is truth and wisdoms in that; but I can't imagine ever being able to achieve them on my own! Enough can't be said about Thomas! I'm very grateful for him, to have found him, and to know him! He recently told me, "Life is happening FOR YOU! Life is never happening TO YOU!" You want a change in your life, become the change! Get with this guy!

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 completely, wholeheartedly recommend Jeanine. It was my first time working with a coach and, of the 15 or so coaches that I did intro calls with, I connected right off the bat with Jeanine's warmth, intuition and understanding. She's changed my life. In our time together, I grew more than I could've imagined in just a few months. I relearned how to connect with my intuition and to act on it. I nurtured a profound, deeper trust in myself and the universe. I reopened myself to the world to be the giver that I am at my core. And I found the courage to speak my truth and step into my full bigness and wholeness of being. Her use of guided visualization is so powerful and has opened up worlds and tools that I will use for the rest of my life. Most importantly, I feel that Jeanine approaches her clients as more than just clients but as humans that she deeply cares about and roots for. I feel unconditionally supported and cherished by her. Jeanine is incredible and I can't recommend her enough!

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.

Rick Gioiello has an intuitive/innate sense to coaching among other talents, and knows where the work is needed. With upfront honesty and intense compassion , he gives advice/direction making one feel comfortable and allowing that vulnerable side to shine, I have personally felt I have learned something new after sessions with him, and as a result booked a role on a short film. He has also helped me with audition clips and is an awesome photographer . He takes his work seriously and passionately and it shows brilliantly. -Gina Rados-

James is incredible. He's a powerful force that'll challenge you (in a loving way) to move towards the life of your dreams. He's helped me make more money (a few hundred more a month) doing what I love. He's helped me see my worth and value myself more - and I've been extra proactive on growing my business. He's inspired me to take care of my body more, and because of that I feel healthier and stronger than I have in months. I highly recommend him as a Life Coach to anyone -- he'll get you where you want to go - and fast!

Eric has been an amazing coach and mentor over the last year! His entrepreneurial mindset plus his strong human and professional values helped me to set new avenues to my professional and personal life, specially when it has to do with being open to new opportunities, creativity, and innovation. He is pretty much aware about the challenges we have to face everyday in our work environment and he is always bringing, if not the right solution, at least the best way to deal with it. I highly recommend his work!

If you are looking to learn a healthier lifestyle and work toward being the best you that you can be, Melissa will help you in that direction! Melissa is the most dedicated nutritionist and healthy living coach. She has turned her expertise into an awesome support for those who are looking to make life long healthy choices with nutrition. I learned a great deal of tips and tricks, and the science behind what my body needs. She makes it fun, empowering, and is incredibly motivating! She continually checks in on me and supports me with her infectious positive energy and genuine support. She truly cares about your success. I would absolutely recommend Melissa as your health and well-being coach.

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

Sherry was nice to work with. She was available for each of our sessions and even went out of her way on more than one occasion to see how my weekly progress had been. She did a great job making sure that I was the one making my own decisions and action steps. At one point, I was really stuck during a session, and she made a suggestion but was very thoughtful to ask for permission first. Thanks Sherry.

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 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

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.

How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

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.
