When I found Rob Atkins, I was an award-winning teacher who had been let go. I felt like I had lost my identity because I thought of myself as a teacher and then I wasn't. I found a probationary job educating adults in leadership skills in a non-academic setting. I contacted him to see if I could add some focus, leadership, and a professional image to my life. He has done much more. Thanks to him, I have more clarity in my personal and professional life. I realize I always had confidence and leadership ability but was just afraid to show it and was oblivious to it. I know more about how to navigate outside of the classroom, and I am not looking back! As a result, I have now been retained in my current job, and I look forward to the opportunities it will present! The religious aspect is also what I needed to hear since it has too often taken a back burner to my career. Rob is able to zero in on exactly what you need to move forward in your life and career. He recommends books, courses of action, and even what to say in certain situations. His advice is concrete and specific, and not just a "pep talk." Thank you, Rob, for everything! I highly recommend Rob Atkins as a life coach! Danielle Blount, Ed. D.

My life is utterly transformed and there is not a day that goes by that I do not give thanks for all Ataana has helped me to achieve. Ataana is a master healer, mentor and teacher. Ataana has supported, coached and has given me the tools I need to transcend some extremely difficult periods in my life. I have to say, I would probably not still be on this planet without his support. Ataana has helped me to understand and activate my best life possible. I am extremely grateful God has brought him into my life. Thank you!

Jake provided life coaching services while I pursued a career change and relocation. He asked insightful questions that helped me figure out which path was best for me short-term and long-term, and ensured I focused on all aspects of the transition (including financial/practical considerations) instead of being driven solely by emotion. His step by step approach helped me tackle a huge change in small, manageable pieces and allowed me to focus and be productive despite the anxiety/uncertainty I was feeling. Overall, it was a great experience. I was new to life coaching, but now realize how helpful it can be to have someone help you create structure in the midst of chaos.

I have come to believe that to grow into who we truly want to be and live meaningful, purposeful, joyful lives, most, if not all of us, will need the objective viewpoint, support and accountability from a coach, mentor, therapist; whatever we are comfortable with calling that person. Working with Deborah has been a lifesaver for me at a time in my life when I had reached the height of frustration and almost lost hope of a positive future. She has been that constant source of support and accountability, helping me realize and keeping me focused on my calling, helping me address and overcome foundational lies that have held me back for years in shame and unawareness and helping me reclaim my power to act on managing my life to create meaning and purpose. Through insight from her own life story (I'm not alone; it's not just me!) and her continuous and compassionate support of moving me forward, I see a light at the end of the tunnel and have hope that I am beginning to understand my calling and how to contribute my unique gifts I was meant to share with others. I don't gravitate toward the "guru types"; Deborah's a real, down-to-earth, "takes it all in stride" kinda woman, and wants only the best for those with whom she works. If you're not living the life you envisioned, she can definitely help get you track!

I have worked with Nancy Stevens in both overall life coaching as well as in regard to my health/wellness goals. Nancy was always a bright spot in our sessions. These sessions were always relaxed and friendly but she did not hesitate to ask the tough questions...questions that often left me thinking on them days after. They were not just thought provoking but also encouraged me to make some small and major changes in my life, my career and my overall outlook. Most importantly, I have found through our sessions what I desire to be my life story and how I can actively work toward achieving it. While recognizing and acknowledging the difficult issues/issues imposed upon me, she has helped me see how to deal with them proactively. They are not my story; they are not who I am. I have moved forward in many ways since first meeting Nancy. As far as my health and wellness, I appreciate that Nancy has been so knowledgable with regard to not just exercise but to a diet which is most beneficial to my specific situation (age and thyroid issues). I am unable to think of anything that Nancy could have done better. It's intimidating to work with someone like this...to share your hopes dreams, insecurities. However, I was instantly at ease with Nancy. She proved to be knowledgable, caring, encouraging, and, best of all, proactive. During my work with her, I came to understand ways in which I was allowing myself to be a victim in my own life. She gave me the tools to take back authority over my life and my story. I wouldn't hesitate to send anyone her way!

    Personally Recognizing & Accepting Yourself ...is my take away from NaRu coaching. Whats important is me, my view of my life & how I view situations...not how others perceive what my visions should look like to them.

    Esther was my life coach during one of the most difficult and trying seasons of my life. She helped me to place my focus where it needed to be and move forward. Esther listens well, shares her good wisdom, and speaks from a caring and truthful place. My experience with Esther was wonderful and I strongly recommended her to anyone who needs honest life direction.

    The approach and attitude which Shellia took and displayed while helping me was nothing short of outstanding. She quickly gained my trust and confidence and established a rapport which eliminated my initial feeling and concerns of working with a total stranger; she truly is the epitome of a constant professional. I highly recommend her as an Inspirational Life Coach.

    Rebecca has been my coach for a few months now. She is smart, warm, intuitive and brilliant at keeping me on task and achieving the goals I set for myself. She has led me by example in my own coaching career. yes, that's right I am also a coach. Could you imagine how tough it would be to coach "A Coach"! She is truly one of the best. I recommend her without reservation to anyone wanting more from their life on a whole.

    Amanda is simply the best resource I've ever had. Understanding, flexible, very professional and always willing to help. I've done tons of traditional therapy and nothing really worked out as much as the time I spent with her. Open your heart and let her expertise help you! It helped me in the worst time of my life! :) Thank you ALWAYS Amanda!

    About

    I believe that every moment in life has something to teach us, if we are willing to look at them with the right perspective. I believe that those perspectives may be the key to unlocking the potential that each of us have hidden within ourselves. I make it my goal in every interaction to create a space that enables my clients to see themselves honestly and without judgement. I enjoy working with individual adults as they learn to conquer their anxieties, abide with grief, beat back depression, manage physical pain, and discover their purpose in life. In addition to being a counselor, I am certified to practice hypnotherapy. I'm passionate about coaching his clients through developing their own meditation practices, because I believes that everyone needs a regular exercise for getting the most out of their mind.

    I am naturally empathic. When you suffer, I feel the injustice. When you celebrate, I cry tears of joy. I want you to succeed and know the fulfillment of finding your life purpose.

    About

    I am a life coach not a liscensed therapist or counselor in Tennessee. I worked for seven years in a dual diagnosis mental health/drug and alcohol facility. I not only helped both adults and adolescents get sober but even more so dealt with patients issues in their relationships, spotted issues and came up with solutions that could sabotage continued sobriety/happiness. Since most patients used alcohol and drugs to cope with problems in their life, my belief is by fixing those underlying issues so patients no longer feel the need to medicate to deal with life. I love relationship therapy, conflict resolution and strengthening relationships. I have a keen ability to see the whole picture and am able to point out in a loving but matter of fact way. I don't take sides I call it as it is. I had a foster daughter with serious family, mental health issues and lots of personal problems. I got her at age 15 and raised her till 19. After lots of life coaching, family counseling, self esteem work she graduated high school and even went to college. She went on to getting married and having two kids. She was a difficult case but her mom trusted my abilities enough to sign over custody to me. Lastly my approach to life coaching is unique in that it involves taking a serious look at a clients character defects, letting go of resentments that hold people back from true happiness, helping clients identify the root cause of their emotions/problems and learning to truly love themselves.

    About

    I empower women to embrace and nurture their spirit, mind, and body to achieve a balance life. I help you with your personal development, career, and family. Self-care is my concept in one-on-one's and in group sessions.

    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.
