Jenni was more than a helping hand for our wedding. She was, and continues to be, a life coach and a good friend throughout the whole process. She made the entire event flow without incident which made everyone involved, from the wedding party, to the guests have a lifelong memorable event.

Katie is amazing! She helped me set my goals in a realistic way step by step and helped me create a unique routine based on my needs and interests. She really digs deep to understand people individually. I was able to change my lifestyle for good with her holistic approach. She gave me ideas for exercises and recipes to do on my own while meeting with her 3x a week for an intense workout. I’m already feeling the positive impact in my life and seeing the results! Thank you! :)

"Judy is an exceptional life coach. Too many in the coaching field couch and cover their work in hopes of not giving too much of their work away without compensation. Judy does not withhold her knowledge or expertise from those she serves. Her training, insight and experience is evident from the moment she begins engaging with you. Her listening skills are apparent. The questions she asks of you are structured to stimulate your thinking. Judy is a unique Life and Career coach. She belongs on your team as you transition and transform your own life and career objectives."

We're off to a great start! I just signed on for a 3 month life coaching cycle with Jerry and am very pleased. I had my 1st coaching skype session earlier this week and gained much clarity and many useful takeaways both through our session and through the discovery questionnaire she gave me to do prior. Life is already feeling better. Jerry is very responsive, kind and professional!

Nick made each lesson engaging and fun. I found myself looking forward to the next lesson. He is extremely knowledgeable and always found a way to make the lesson relatable. He provided me with many useful test taking tips and tricks. As a result of Nick's coaching, I experienced a significant increase in my test scores.

Ashley has been my Holistic Health Coach for a year and a half now. She has completely transformed my life in more ways than I thought was possible when I even signed up for her service. I have learned in depth about more than just nutrition. She really teaches an overall wellness that comes from within. Her program has taught me self-love, self-awareness, accountability and just an overall way to feel better about myself on a consistent basis. She has also taught me valuable ways to eliminate consumer products full of toxins by incorporating essential oils for almost every single purpose you can imagine. And she has taught me so much about herbs and how/what to use to make my own home remedies instead of grabbing a pill bottle or medicine to alleviate symptoms or issues. With her help I have truly transformed my life and I am on a much better path that I plan on continuing. I also occasionally use her Rain Drop Therapy service for aches and pains that I have now and again from a car accident I was in years ago. I recommend her very highly to anyone who is serious about changing their life for the better.

"It's funny, but you can be so good at identifying brand attributes and communicating consumer benefits for your clients, but when it comes to doing the same for yourself, it seems to be an insurmountable task. Joanne helped me to identify what value I would bring to a new position and what I wanted in a new job. When an offer came, Joanne was there to coach me through negotiations. As I progress through the new company, I know that circumstances will arise where I will need to think through my approach. And Joanne will be there to coach me through it."

"When I graduated from college, I had no idea what I wanted to do for a living. I got into sales and now realize that sales is not for me. I heard about Laura through a business contact and was hoping that she could give me some guidance as she does career coaching. Laura helped me figure out what career would be right for me by asking me good questions, paying close attention to my responses, and picking up on my personality and strengths. As this was all done by phone even though Laura offered to meet me in person, I was very impressed with her insight, patience, and obvious desire to send me on the right path. Laura is a kind, practical, helpful person and I highly recommend her as a talented career coach." - David H.

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

I have been working with Gloria for over 8 months now. She has really helped me to focus on defining what I want for my job and career and why its important to me. From there she has helped me to set both short term and long term goals which are helping me to take my career in the direction I want to go. She has helped me to recognize key strengths in myself and determine what kind of work makes me most happy and therefore most successful. I would highly recommend Gloria as a professional coach! She is empathetic, encouraging, and has really helped me to think about my career and goals in a new way which makes it very exciting.

ANGEL Diane Passage has been generously and kindly sharing her time, energy, experience, and stellar "Life101 know how" for over a year now in working with me. We have taken a journey through so many issues that it boggles my mind -- we started together during the toughest & lowest point in life I had ever gone through, I mean, I felt hopeless, and when I think of how & who I was before we started and how I can now better deal with matters today, I see a world of difference, seriously. As a matter of fact, I have learned so much from Diane that I highly respect and value, and I constantly find myself repeating & sharing the wise advice & hands-on "exercises" Diane has shared with me when I converse with friends & others about their issues. When the student repeats the teacher, that is a job well-done!! Diane is truly a natural when it comes to life coaching. There has never been a question or issue that she could not consult on, and she is always super cool & smooth as silk when sharing her advice -- she always makes her point clearly and well. I'm a pretty tough customer, normally not taking the advice of so many folks. However, Diane Passage is TRULY a SUPERSTAR with life coaching, and with a major hat tip & respectful salute, I honor Diane as she has my 100% full respect. TRULY A GREAT LIFE COACH!! Thank you, Diane, for ALL you have done with me!!

    I have known Ricky for over a decade. Before he officially became a life coach, he had always taken a keen interest in his friends well being. I remember on multiple occasions when someone was in a rut, or were on the verge of going in the wrong direction, he would take it on himself to provide valuable advice, even if it was difficult to deliver. That is what makes Ricky particularly qualified for being a life coach. He is someone you can rely on telling you how things are and what you need to do to improve your life. He will not back down to giving tough feedback, but will be considerate when providing it. On a personal level, Ricky has been subtly coaching my life for years now, whether he or I knew it or not. At every phase of my life, he has been there to provide advice, whether it be around the way I present myself, outlook on my career or even my general demeanor and view of life. He has been a value mentor, and most importantly, friend. I highly recommend Ricky as a life coach.

    I’ve always been intimidated with working out. As a professional body builder, she knows how to scale workouts to all levels. She’s very knowledgeable, compassionate, and fun to workout with. I lead a very busy life and she is always working to accommodate the needs of all her clients. I’ve been working out with her for 6 weeks now and I see small changes in how my clothes fit and surely a lot more definition. With the meal plan she has me on, I see my belly become smaller and smaller on a weekly basis! Only 6 weeks in and I’m super satisfied! I’ll add pics on 6 months and 12 months!

    From the beginning, I knew Lynne would be a great help guiding me through my career. Even before we met, we got to know one another through correspondence which meant we had a base to work off of when I came in. I am in a creative profession and was unsure whether Lynne would "get it," but I was quickly shown, through exercises and our conversation, that her coaching is about working from the foundation up. Her style is universal yet feels extremely personal. Walking out I felt like I had already made progress and am excited to be coached by her.

    Andre is an amazing coach! When I first talked to Andre I was an emotional mess. I had a boyfriend that left me for someone else and I had lost my dad a few months prior and life was looking horrible. After the first session with Andre the depression (or the poor me attitude) was completely gone because I see things so much differently then I did before I talked to him. I had been abused mentally and physically all of my life and I hated my self but he has showed me how to love my self and that I don't need anyone around me to be happy. He is even helping me with my dog! He is truly amazing and I would recommend his service to anyone that is dealing with any life issues. There is no price on the happiness that I am experiencing now compared to the sad, depressed, lonely person I was before I talked him and I've had 3 sessions.

    I was counseled by Lin Fai Whu over a period of twelve months. At first I was skeptical that he would be able to help me, but I found that to be otherwise after a few counseling sessions. Lin Fai is not an emotional counselor who caters to how people feel and tells you what you want to hear. Instead he brings thoughtful, simple suggestions based on Biblical truth to guide you in the right direction. He has a solid understanding on matters of sin and the heart. I found Lin Fai to be caring, meek and wise and I highly recommend him to any man or couple who seek Biblical counseling on any life issue.

    I've been working with David for a year now as my life coach and I really feel blessed to have found him. It's amazing how easily he is able to help me improve my outlook on everything and begin to manifest actual positive tangible changes. What I particularly love is that David is really accessible. He clearly knows life has it's ups and downs, and he's able to coach me into a better understanding of my own abilities to bring about change. It's very powerful to be able to create the life I want. David seems to have a gift for being a positive force exactly when i need it. I highly recommend him as a law of attraction coach.

      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.

      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 get a life coach?

      People of all ages and in all careers have called in a life coach. Life coaches are accredited professionals who can help you figure out the tangible changes you can make in your life to reach your goals; they can even help you turn your dreams into goals, if you’re not sure where to go next. A life coach can also help people find their purpose in life. Life coaching clients often have an idea of what they want to do, such as help people or work with animals, but don’t know how to turn that passion into a career. A life coach can help clients work through the options to find a clear path with concrete steps that lead to an attainable goal. A life coach can also help clients make a major career change, such as starting a new business. Life coaches can help clients develop better habits that will make them more successful, acting as an accountability partner. Life coaches also often guide their clients through major transitions in life, such as a career change or other stressful situations that are made easier with guidance from a neutral third party.
