David and I worked together during my recent job transition. I decided to hire him to help me discover if it was time for a career change, and as I was on severance - I didn't have a lot of time to waste. David used his network to introduce me to people who held careers that were of interest to me. I even shadowed one for a day. He also helped with career testing and self- discovery tools that enabled me to narrow down my search and ultimately land a job that I am excited about. He is truly a coach. With his energy and enthusiasm, he helps you to help yourself. Thank you, David Alicia Kerrigan

Kimberly was my life coach. She asked what goals I wanted to achieve and when, it was then her job to make a path for me. She not only made the path, she guided me through it. I achieved several of my goals, including a career change. There were times when I strayed from my goals but Kimberly would not allow me to stray to far and got me back on track. I recommend her to anyone that has goals in life but does not know how to achieve them or where to start. Kimberly still reaches out to make sure things are going well.

    Josh is one of the hardest working, most inspiring people I have ever had the pleasure of working with over the course of my career. He doesn't just care about the job but about his people. He goes above and beyond in creating a positive, responsive environment - often tailoring solutions and improvement plans to the individual, sacrificing his own time to ensure success. It was a pleasure to work with Josh. I have yet to find his equal in the four years since we parted professional ways. I wish him nothing but continued success in whatever field he decides to tackle next!

    I have really enjoyed working with Cheri thus far! She has a diverse range of services but spends time getting to know her individual clients and understanding how she can best be of help based on their specific needs and goals. She is great at listening to my specific situation, interests and goals and providing insight and feedback that I wouldn’t have seen or realized myself. Through working with Cheri, I have been able to better articulate what my career goals are and identify a few areas on which to focus my efforts and gain more momentum in my career change. Having someone to help me set goals and check-in with every week or two has been immensely helpful in holding me accountable to do the necessary work and make progress. Whether you’re job hunting, changing careers, or looking for image or life coaching, I’d highly recommend working with Cheri!

    Clarice is honest, quick witted, and professional. She was just the one to get me going, get me motivated, and get me to the next stage of my career. She is real, and has the ability to connect with you as an individual to get to the root of your true passions and desires. Her strategic approach has been tested in Fortune 500 companies, and I would trust no one else on the road to success.

      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.
