Suzanne gave me insightful career advice had me leaving the appointment with a plan of where to go and what to do next. She listened to my situation and gave me invaluable advice that I could not have received from a friend or family member. Suzanne is warm, professional, and excellent at helping one develop a career plan while also providing personal advice.

Rachel taught me how to lose weight the old fashioned way--through diet and exercise! I can't tell you how much I've benefitted from her guidance in workouts and support with nutrition and lifestyle choices. I would highly recommend Rachel to anyone who's looking to commit themselves to a lifestyle change that is both attainable and challenging. Rachel will keep you on track and provide you with positive energy through the process!

I have worked with and for Eddie Fooshang. Plainly, I enjoyed communicating with and learning from him in both scenarios. Even when I was teaching him about products and companies that were new to him, I learned and benefited from his mentorship and experience. I continue to seek advice from Eddie, as well. His tenure, professionalism and ingenuity inspire me to remember, I can press forward, go higher and will ask, "Is there a better way to work this?" I am excited to know that he will influence others who want to benefit their career paths, self-growth and sales knowledge.

Maribel is a wonderful! She is not only extremely knowledgeable but also very caring. She takes the time to examine one's passions, ambitions and the main components that make everyone unique. Furthermore, she helps one to identify those attributes and apply them positively in order to mold his or her personal and professional endeavors. I highly recommend her coaching to anyone who wants to be the best at what they do.

I had the privilege of working with Dr. Jack Allen during a rather stressful point in my career. Dr. Allen offered guidance and coaching that helped me to gain perspective, and remain positive in the midst of the turmoil and high demands. He guides his clients to discover how to best attain their personal and professional goals. His coaching is practical, positive, and extremely helpful.

    I’m so grateful to Satori for her guidance. She was an open, loving and accepting mirror reflecting my true self back to me as I climbed the peaks and descended into the valleys of my journey to awakening. The deep compassion, insight and wisdom she shared with me was a gift that opened my mind and kissed my heart with the sweet nectar of I AM.

      I was feeling frustrated with my job and really needed a change. Southwestern Consulting opportunity came up and I was hesitant, but gave it a shot. Since starting with them only two months ago, my life (not just career) has changed immensely. I look forward to work every day. My sales are up. And Jamie is not just a coach, but my biggest fan. He goes over and beyond to be a resource for me. It was the best decision I made and I can't wait to celebrate my big fat paycheck with him at the end of the year. =)

        As a self proclaimed "non runner" I was anxious about participating in Melanie's 10-week running program. However, with Melanie's guidance not only did I meet the goals she laid out, I also developed more self confidence and discovered that I don't hate running! Melanie is a wonderful coach! She seemed to know whether I needed a little tough love to push me to meet my potential or some gentle encouragement to help me reach the next target. She is a spark. She lives her life to fullest and helps to inspire everyone she meets with her energy, positive outlook and never ending pursuit of greatness! I highly recommend Melanie to help you meet your goals- whatever those goals might be.

        I was out of shape and depressed. I had no drive, no fire so to speak. Ivan has been a beacon at what was a major low point in my life. He has helped guide me into getting in shape again through teaching, positive encouragement, diet plan, and most importantly by leading by example. He has and is still coaching me in so many other ways than my physical training. Ivan has been instrumental in getting me out of a rut. He has coached me through one of the lowest points in my life and shown me I can overcome anything. Ivan has been able to teach, coach, and mentor me in a ways I never could have imagined. He has brought out the absolute best in me and we are still going. I would not be nearly as sucuessful as I am without Ivan guiding me and showing me how to accomplish my goals. My work production has drastically improved to the point my bosses have noticed. My wife and I have a renewed spark again as if we were newlyweds and I have been able to appreciate the small things with my children thus making me a much bettee father. My energy level is through the roof in every aspect of my life. I wouldn't be nearly as successful as I am now without Ivan's guidance. He has shown me how to get the fire back in my life. I have more passion and drive than I have ever had and owe my successes to Ivan's coaching. He has been able to get me out of the rut and shown me how to soar.

          I've worked with Liz for several months, individually and in a group setting. From my perspective helping writers birth their books isn't something she does on the side, it's her true calling. So much so, I find it difficult to imagine she has any energy left to write her own best-selling books. Liz supports her writers by helping them define and refine their mission, information and process. Her energy and focus is powerful.  Her experience and insights are rich. She does her research and constantly uncovers new opportunities, technologies and trends. She's organized, reliable and always prepared. Oh, and she doesn't hold back. One quality that separates her from many book coaches and publishing services available today is that she doesn't claim to have a tried and true formula. (You know the spiel "Just follow these ten steps and you too will have a best selling money-making blockbuster!") Instead she guides each of her clients to find their unique gift to the world. This is not only more fulfilling for the writer but significantly reduces the risk that theirs becomes another "me too" book languishing in the remainder bin. She'll be as involved as you want her to be. If you're serious about your book, I strongly suggest you hire her.

            Charlotte's wisdom, grace and kindness have helped me move through some of the greatest challenges of my life without the fear, anxiety and doubt that have weighed me down in the past. She's got a way of framing the most seemingly complex, heavy problems in a way that makes them seem like extremely small hurdles to overcome – or, in some cases, to simply walk away from. I can't wait until my next session!

            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.
