Working with Ms. Bernard was a life changing experience. She helped me to reach new heights in my career and to finally succeed at long-standing personal goals. She is extremely personable and has the ability to connect with her clients quickly and to begin work with them at whatever stage they're in at the time. She is trustworthy, always encouraging, and a patient and insightful guide through life experiences in pursuit of goals and dreams. She also instills good value and high integrity back into your life.

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!

I was at a very tough place in my "job", battling terrible executive management, understaffed projects, and low morale across the board. I knew I needed to make a change but was terrified to leave a job I'd been doing for a long time with people I knew and liked, and it was a job that I used to really enjoy. I was worried no one else would want to hire me, despite my extensive experience in my niche industry from both a technical contributor and management/directorship standpoint. Carla helped me build my self confidence and helped me find the courage to leave a very unhealthy situation. I did it and feel 100% better about myself and my future...and the best thing of all is a new career path has opened up for me that I wouldn't have been able to pursue had I stayed in the previous job! Thanks, Carla, for your support and guidance through a really tough time!

Personal training with Eric Johnson was fun, energetic and effective. He also provided helpful nutrition information that was easy to use in the daily life of a mom if 2 with a full time career. I always felt encouraged, supported and cared about when discussing my fitness goal. I lost all of my baby weight and then some while working out with Eric and learned how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and fitness level.

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!

From the very first session with him, I knew it would be a positive experience, and I was right. Phil has a talent for asking thought provoking questions and had the ability to help me come to my own conclusions about what I truly wanted. He's a wonderful career counselor and helped me more than I could ever put into words.

    Stacy served as my mentor to me and my wife Deborah over a 6 month period. I have worked with many coaches throughout my career and I can say that Stacy is one of the best! She has a wealth of knowledge and experience. Stacy’s focus in working with us was helping us with a new business franchise that my wife and I invested. Stacy’s advice was practical, insightful and most importantly real world. We were able to implement many of the suggestions and systems that she shared with us and they made a significant difference in our business and our profitability. I would highly recommend Stacy as a Coach or Mentor. -Rob & Deborah P.

    Melissa Walker is a really good Career Coach. She has a way of melding all the information she has learned from books, real-life experiences in the corporate world, and deep experience running her own business into a wealth of fantastic information. She was patient to listen and guide my thoughts through a series of probing, insightful questions that helped me improve my Career goals. I was recently promoted and believe some of the information she provided me helped with that process. I wholeheartedly recommend Melissa as a Career Coach for anyone who is struggling with challenges or just wanting to take their career to the next level.

    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. :)

    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.

    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 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.
