Dr. Miller is the best! She is a true professional and really knows what she is talking about. With her help I was able to overcome my fears and take charge of my career. Since working with her I have successfully transition from a teaching position into the curriculum leader position that I always wanted but was too afraid to apply for. I highly recommend the career coaching services provided by her and the Professor Patty Cake team! Jackie

I have used both the emotion code and the life coaching services from Sharon. I found her to be thorough and understanding. She listens carefully to your needs. I am free of distressing issues that made me mad at others, and am free to move on. I was told that forgiving didn't mean what was done was ok, and I finally understand that.I was always worrying about my 21 year old son and if he was doing "what he should" . I learned that is his responsibility, and I cannot control him, I can only control me. I went to numerous counselors before i found Sharon, and wish I had found her first.

High level preaching and teaching. Prophetic encouragement and guidance that is life changing. The Bible says "Believe in the LORD your God, and you will be established; believe his prophets, and you will succeed.” 2 Chronicles 20:20. I have found a life of success at The Kings Healing Room church under the leadership of Pastor Brian K Hill, Sr.

Chris Allen has been my business coach for four years and I only have positive things to say about my experience. Her background, education and experience uniquely qualifies her above other coaches I considered and have since become aware of. She provides a number of assessment tools. Her PeopleMap tool helped me understand my approach to the world and to use it to work effectively with people with a different perspective. It gives me the ability to consider how I can better deal with difficult or awkward people situations that I encounter. You have to do the "homework" to get the most benefit. Chris can't do it for you. She listens carefully and comments constructively about what she is observing. She is flexible in her approach, being aware of my needs yet gently pushing when it's required. She has listened to my jumbled thoughts and helped me see the appropriate path to tackle situations. I can tie increased income directly to a number of conversations that we had. I read that entrepreneurs that engage a coach significantly increase their business income. There is no questions that I am experiencing that by working with Chris. She has helped me grow personally and professionally as I'm growing and running my business.

I have been a client of Kim Oakes for over 5 years. I had worked with a psychiatrist in Dallas, TX for 17 years, due to issues with a Bipolar husband and Schizophrenic son. A move to NY State after a divorce added to my issues--divorce, helping my disabled son who moved with me, a new relationship, going back into the work world and the pressures of all this in my early 60's. Kim has been wonderful--kind but candid, realistic about my problems but empathic, and offering options of ways to deal with difficult people. She has taught me a great deal about "boundaries." In moments of crisis, I've even called Kim, and she "talked me down out of the trees" over the phone. She is easy to talk to, has a lovely sense of humor, and is an excellent listener. I would not hesitate to send anyone with personal or family issues to her--be it divorce, disabled family members, difficult relationship problems in family or work, and life crises. She has helped me more in 6 years than the psychiatrist in Dallas did in 17! In a nutshell, she is extremely caring, and at the same time, very down to earth.

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.
