Brandon is a great coach. Very detailed and knows what he's doing. He is a kettlebell expert and if I had any questions with kettlebells, I would go to Brandon. He also corrects my form if I'm doing something wrong. He will correct my form even from the slightest movement and that's something that not many trainers do. He will show you modification workouts to me advanced workouts. Brandon is definitely the trainer who would start at the level you are at and progress from there. Overall, Brandon will inspire anybody to be better!

    Hey guys! I have had a couple of other life coaches before Albert and I didn’t like working with them for several reasons. Mostly because they talked the talk but didn’t walk the walk. I’m now actually personal friends with Albert, and he actually lives with the mindset he coaches in his personal life. He isn’t a different person coaching versus out in the world.

    "His personality, integrity, humor, and appreciation for others make him an excellent listener and leader. His open- mindedness and capacity to care about others make him a great coach. He is positive, focused, and has the ability to ask just the right questions to allow the client to realize their dreams and reach the goals to get there. I highly recommend David Merino as a personal coach."

    I have met Giles for 3 Shamanic Energy Work sessions and each experience has shifted me in a profound way. Giles holds sacred space for his clients to connect with the parts of themselves that are calling for healing. Through his intuitive guidance, I have been able to understand and break through blocks that I didn't know were holding me back. I am very thankful for the services that Giles has to offer and I will continue to work with him on my healing journey. Giles is also a wonderful mentor for those looking to discover their own path within this field.

    I decided to try hypnosis for weight loss at the recommendation of a friend. I was just so tired of trying and failing all the diets and feeling worse and worse about myself. From the first phone call Dale made me feel comfortable and at ease talking about my problems and fears. His sessions were really enlightening. I thought my weight problem was just about bad food choices but he helped me realize it was really emotional. I lost about 50 lbs and more importantly my stress and anxiety got so much better! I had no idea those things were even connected. Now I feel in control of my health and emotions and I feel good in my body. Dale is so professional and explained how everything worked so I could understand. He was also really kind and never made me feel judged. He was easy to work with and I felt right away that he could really understand and could really help me. I highly recommend Dale to anyone whose dealing with weight issues and stress/anxiety.

    Mike offered his coaching when I was going through a very challenging time in my life. Divorce. My life was entering new territory, I was a mess, and relations with my kids were not easy. Mike offered advice and thoughts that hit at many levels. From what good growth could come out of the mire to practical advice for being available to my kids. Mike did not sugar-coat things. He has a depth of experience and core of compassion that combine to make him an exceptional life or spiritual coach.

      After leaving a 20-year career, I was hoping to learn the secrets of how to get a job in the competitive Portland market. I ended up learning so much more - about myself, what is important to me, and that instead of a job, I actually wanted to be an entrepreneur. What a surprise! Each week was productive and encouraging. I have a solid plan now, that includes certifications, business plans, and networking strategy. No mysteries and the direction I so very needed.



      I provide superior coaching using Bob Proctors' techniques and teachings.


      Conceive, believe, and achieve, for nothing is impossible with God! All things are possible for those who trust in Him. - Luke 1:37, Mark 9:23, 3 John:2 Our goal is to empower those individuals that are ready, and willing to make positive changes in their lives. It is our belief that God created us to have dominion over our lives. This means to be able to overcome any situation that may face us, because we have the God-given ability to do so.


      I offer life coaching and integrative massage for women. My specialty is inspiring greater clarity and supporting positive change. I use powerful dialogue, mindfulness and body-based awareness to guide my clients towards greater trust in their own inner knowing. I also offer couples coaching for committed couples who want to deeper their relationship, build on their strengths and accomplish their goals together.


      My work as a Life Coach stands out because I've lived a lot of what it is I'm coaching around with my clients. I've struggled with my own relationship to food and positive self-image; I have an MFA in theater and understand the pull of performing arts vs. a more "regular" life; I believe in showing up as a Life Coach as a "real person" and not a slick professional who believes she knows more than the client. I believe the client always knows more than me--I am there to learn and reflect the fact that my clients are, already, "talented, resourceful and whole."


      We teach you how to finally live an extraordinary life now. We offer the following services: * Hypnotherapy - to provide the solution to your problems with weight, addictions, stress, love, career and money * Life Coaching - to help you define your outcome, so you get what you really want * Energy Healing - to invite the impossible, so miracles happen


      Life Coaching can be one of the keys to a happier, healthier life. My goal is to work with you as a peer to help you find the tools and techniques to achieve a balanced and fulfilling life. We will work on self awareness, self esteem, critical thinking, problem solving and decision making. You will become well-versed at handling issues whenever and wherever they arise.

I believe the purpose of my gift is to provide insights into the journey ahead of you and those who share your path.

      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.
