I have worked for a non-profit organization for 26 years, and recently my new boss asked for my resume. At first,I was totally over whelmed and didn't know where to start. I contacted Syreeta a few days before my resume was due, and we talked a bit and she asked questions, and the rest is history. In a nut shell she provided me with a professional and top-notch resume in just a few days. I am absolutely impressed with my resume and pretty sure that I'll use her services in the future. Also, I want to say that Syreeta was very positive and reassuring the entire time that we worked together. She also met EVERY deadline. Moreover, I highly recommend SW Coaching & Consulting. Thanks again!

When someone makes a difference in your life, you want to tell the world. I have been working with Linda from Now Life Spirituality coaching for almost a full year and all I can say is Wow! what a difference my life is now compared to just 12 short months ago. Linda has made such a difference in the way I see the world and the way I see myself in this world. No longer do I walk around with spiritual blinders and mental blocks that have kept my from reaching my full potential. the abundance blocks are gone and I am free to create the life of my dreams. Thank you, Now Life & Spirituality Coaching.

He was more than willing to help accommodate our crazy schedules and always provide top-notch training. Workouts are fun and challenging. Tom inspires you to push yourself both in the gym and in life. His knowledge and assistance with proper form and fitness is unmatched. Highly recommend Thomas for your training needs.

I found Lisa through her website after quite a bit of searching. I knew what I wanted to accomplish; I just didn't know how to get it done. Nutritional advice, personal training, and motivation is what I was searching for and exactly what I found in Lisa! She is encouraging, upbeat, and always focused on my development. The workouts are fun, varied and always challenging. As I have made lifestyle changes toward being healthier - I feel that I have a true partner in Lisa. She has worked with me on so many different muscle groups and overall cardio fitness my health, body and spirit are all stronger. Each time we go through something new she demonstrates just what a strong and effective teacher she is both my modeling the exercise and patiently giving feedback until my form improves. She is such a strong teacher that many of the exercises she has taught me I now can do at home. Lisa has a variety of videos that she has available for those in-between work outs along with those times I can't make my twice weekly workouts. Simply put - a joy to work with and a complete health coach. I feel nothing less than grateful to have found her.

Nekeidra was amazing to work with. She helped update my resume, explaining the different formats required for online applications vs. email applications. She also coached me on tailoring my resume for each and every different job I applied for. She was supportive and helped me through my entire search process. I truly enjoyed working with her!

I find SHEpherd's guidance very useful in my current career. Dina gives me advice on navigating usual hurdles and some not so common hurdles. I find having someone coach me who actually has a successful career outside of "career coaching" to be a great benefit. Her career experiences help me make better choices. I'm looking forward to continued support from Dina and SHEpherd Consulting. JO

I sought out a coach because I was looking for guidance on ways to improve my career. I was experiencing a lack of fulfillment and needed help defining my professional goals and strategies for achieving them. Chris and I were able to set up our first meeting within one week of our initial call which I appreciated. We have had two meetings so far, and I can tell already that he is very astute. He helped me define my core challenges and goals within the first hour and we're already working on a plan for moving forward. He is personable and very encouraging. I would absolutely recommend him.

Debbie of Body of Light provided the best yoga experience I have ever had. I have moved to the West Coast and unfortunately can not find another teacher to match her knowledge, experience or insightful teaching style. Debbie creates the perfect environment in her classes and after the practice I always felt light, rejuvenated and joyful. Her classes offer a complete yoga experience. She is intuitive and not only asks, but knows just what her students need. I have had private sessions where Debbie has helped me rehab various physical ailments in just a few sessions and taught me how to stay healthy on my own. Debbie’s yoga immersion, I can honestly say, was life changing. I completed her yoga teacher training and am often complimented by my students on my teaching style. The entire process deepened my practice immensely. It was rewarding in so many ways. I can not recommend the unique and wonderful experience of Body of Light more.

Katrina is a fantastic life coach! She has a very inviting and genuine personality. I felt comfortable talking to her almost immediately in our first session. Big or small, I feel like I can talk about anything that's going on in my life with Katrina. She always has time to "go into the weeds" with me and help understand what I am thinking. Not too long ago Katrina guided me through a major career change. I felt stuck where I was, and Katrina helped me to breakdown what I was going through and figure out what my true passions are. She got me to focus on what was important and we set goals that were both measurable and achievable. I am so much happier now, and I don't think I could have gotten here without Katrina's guidance. I would highly recommend Katrina as a life coach to anyone looking!

Leslie has been tutoring my teenager son for 2 years. Since she started, his English level, writing and reading have improved tremendously, going from below average to beyond expectations. Leslie demonstrated excellent teaching skills, being softer at times and pushing more when needed. Moreover she shown a lot of flexibility to adapt to him and his scheduled when needed and always got the work done. Leslie has been above and beyond expectations!

Meeting Bill Ryan was the answer to my prayers. I was in a rut and wasn't happy about how I looked and was usually tired and forever procrastinating about doing exercise. I would walk and stop or watch TV exercise programs and become bored took Pilates , too costly. There was always an excuse..... Some changes in life boost ones incentive, and mine was our daughter's upcoming wedding. I needed to feel & look good, and, mostly wanted her to be proud of me I desperately also wanted to change to a lifetime lifestyle.. My nephew joined Snap Fitness and loves it, he sold me on getting up the nerve to call and find out what they were all about and then go for a visit. I told him I really wanted someone to work with me individually because I was afraid of the machine and all the requirements of working them etc. When I called Snap Fitness I spoke with Bill Ryan. He couldn't have been more friendly, polite, patient and understanding. I told him my downfall was not sticking to plans. . He said he thought he could turn my habit around by proper exercise that could boost my metabolism therefore giving me more energy and eventually help me gain a better body image and boost my confidence. He arranged an appointment and we met the following day. He made me feel comfortable instantly because of his friendliness, a great smile and caring attitude.. He is a picture of strength and is mild mannered as a kitty cat After him showing me around and what you could do per machine. I decided I liked what he had shown during my visit, what I could learn to do and what plan he had in mind for me. I knew I could benefit from this Trainer and his expertise. He instantly made me feel more energized just being in his company made me ready to build up my confidence.. I also told him I needed to ask my husband and would get back to him. In essence I told my husband I wanted to do this for me to have a better quality of life and live a long life and also for our daughters wedding in 2014. When my husband agreed to my request I made an appointment with Bill. I knew Bill took his job seriously being a Trainer. It didn't take me long to gain respect for him, therefore I was going to listen and learn because I knew his time was precious and also he had other clients that needed his assistance. I worked with him on a regular basis trying to learn the settings of the machines or the amount of weights I should use or the time it took me to get it all accomplished. Bill really helped me, always encouraging me to try again and telling me I would get better the more I did it.. He has such patience and charm, quick wit and really knows his craft. He never made me feel inadequate in any way. I did this routine on a consistent basis until Bill felt comfortable enough for me to be on my own.. Once the magic happened and finally clicked with me I felt like this was the best experience being able to show him all he taught me paid off and now I was capable of being on my own., However, he assured and there were times... Bill Ryan is a Professional Trainer a fine individual who would be a valuable asset to anyone who seeks one on one training, he's the man you need to hire.He will motivate you and make your life turnaround.. He did mine and I will always be grateful for his guidance and friendship. Thank You Bill!

Kathie was my Health Coach in the summer and fall of 2017. Early on, she asked questions about what was going great in my life and what I wanted to improve. Kathie then worked with me to set realistic goals for myself. Each week during our coaching session, she had a well thought out approach to discussing my progress and coaching me to learn the importance of positive self talk and personal encouragement. In just 90 days time, I achieved a significant amount of progress towards my goals and I loved Kathie’s coaching style! Caryn

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.
