Rev. Garrett was amazing. Had a great idea of what my wife and I are going through and was able to be a straight shooter. Felt a great turn around for my wife and I and we are both excited to keep getting guidance with him.

Coach Gwen has great sense of humor and is very down to earth. She gave me a mock interview. I could not believe the exact same questions were asked! I was very comfortable and the interviewee was as well. She is straightforward with her thoughts on given situations and ideas. I love the fact that she has such high standards and respect in what she does. Im now waiting for my second interview with this major career move. I highly recommend her services!

As a Life Coach, Deborah gently guided me to rediscover what I was passionate about. Once I discovered that, she helped me outline the steps that I needed to take in order to make my life and career change possible! Without her help, I wouldn't have achieved this in such a quick time frame.

Eric Johnson is the best of the best when it comes to personal fitness, no matter what your personal goals are he is the expert at helping you reach your full potential by following his guidance you will exceed your greatest expectations. When I started training with Eric I was a skinny guy i was 5"10 and 135 pounds I tried gaining weight on my own for years with very little success and after a few months of training with Eric I soared to 170 pounds gaining all lean muscle. You can gain so much more than strength by being in his presence; not only did he help improve me physically but he also strengthened my faith in God as well. He is an excellent trainer and role model I will recommend him to anyone looking to get in shape.

I walked away from my coaching experience with a more keen sense of self and confidence in my strengths. Kelly had an innate ability to make me feel comfortable while also challenging me to leverage my strengths at work and in my social life. I left my session feeling positive about my strengths and with a clear direction of where I want to go next in my career. Great experience all around!

Hi Team! This is my first time to post. I moved to Texas in August and met Carlene Saelg. I am 53 and weighed 170lbs. My goal was to change my ways and create a new and sustaining lifestyle for myself. That starts with baby steps. One of the those steps was to start the a supplements program. I started in November with Carlene's guidance. I appreciate the difference this has made in my well being. My energy has increased, as well as my focus. I am eating cleaner and exercising daily. I now weigh 140lbs. I have lost inches going from a size 14+ to now a size 8. ( All of the new clothes that I bought for my jobs, when I arrived to Texas, now fall off of me. YEA!) It took me years to neglect my well being and gain the depressing weight. Losing this weight has been faster than I thought it would take. Patience is a virtue. Believing is trusting. Love yourself and stay the course. I have a plan. Carlene Saelg's guidance and coaching has been invaluable. I am grateful for her easy and constant presence. Support is a beautiful quality and a key to one's success. Thank you, Carlene for adding to my life.

    I've known Penny as a colleague for 18 years and she is the epitome of professionalism combined with warmth, caring and expert guidance. Penny instantly makes every person she comes in contact with feel at ease and as if she's known them for years. I've seen her patients interact with her and it's clear that she has a gift that defies words. God has blessed her with a helping mind and heart that will change your life for the better. The real testimonial is seeing how clients track her down years later when they have a crisis they need help with; they don't reach out to someone new, they reach out to someone they trust. Penny is the counselor other counselors would go see in their time of need. Simply put, she's the best there is.

    Mr. Charles Day provided me with EXCELLENT Personal Trainer methods, advice, healthier eating habits and goals of weight loss and toning for long-term health. I lost 100 pounds and it was a God send for someone like Mr. Day to dare I say, "Save my life". I am a Professional Career woman. I am Caucasian 55 year old and in a "Seaon" in my life called Menopause. This requires additional high maintenance approaches to stabilize moods and balance a healthy lifestyle in order to be proficient in my high profile career. Mr. Day is the catalyst who helped me accomplish this and guided me to better understand the achievements I was capable of in great strides. Mr. Charles Day would be an asset and benefit for any entity or profession he chooses for gainful employment. They will have acquired not only his skill set but also his wisdom, good nature, great sense of humor dosed with high energy and encouragement then seasoned with commitment, caring and a professional attitude while being a fine specimen of an example for many to follow. He has strong leadership qualities and will prove to be extremely successful at whatever he chooses to do.

    My overall experience with Bridges Career Services, LLC had been amazing. My resume looks awesome and I already had a TON on job opportunities open up for me since posting it! It did take a little time for my resume to be completed but once I emailed Camron, he responded right back and completed my resume within 2 hours of his reply! And honestly, my resume is awesome so I'm glad I waited. :)

    Pre Tiffany, I was STUCK. I had talked to two other business coaches about the same problem and they both gave very conflicting information, that didn’t get me anywhere. When trying to find my “path in business,” it seemed like anywhere I reached out for help, everyone was just repeating information they read in a blog post = not helpful. I was in that place where you’re so frustrated and confused about what to do, that you don’t do anything. Since I was doing nothing, my business wasn’t progressing either. But after one session with Tiffany, my path as a coach, my target market and how to actually find these ladies became crystal clear. A problem I had been struggling with, for what felt like forever, was solved after 24 minutes on the phone with Tiffany (really, I checked the time haha). She gave me resources that no one had mentioned before, she made it clear WHY I needed to do certain things first so that I know I’m working on the right things, and she gave me an exercise that helped me figure out my unique edge. I left our call 100% clear, instead of confused with a million questions about how I take my next step. I recommend Tiffany to any business newbie who needs some guidance.

    I was at a dead end job that I had been working at for a little over 7 years, and knew it was time for a career change. It was a tough time for me, and I did not believe in myself and needed the extra motivation and coaching moving into a new career. Amanda was there for me, and was not only able to assist me with finding a new career, but was also able to build up my confidence and help me believe in myself to conquer the new challenge. Amanda was very professional, and understanding throughout the process, and I would strongly recommend her services to anyone that’s needing that extra help.

    I have known Dillon for close to 3 years. Our interactions started with him being my mentor and soon became mentor/friend. Dillon has a great way of listening, coaching through questions, and being fully present in any conversation. Dillon is very sincere and respectful while also bringing a large amount of creativity to any situation. It is truly an honor to know Dillon. I am not alone in saying that every interaction leaves you with positive energy and in a better mood.

        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

        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.

        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 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.   

        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.
