From the moment of our first conversation, I knew I made the right decision. Ms. Geane was very professional but had a way of making you comfortable to give her the needed information.

When you decide to make a change, Tonya Sampson " my trainer", is only part of her label. She becomes your brand and that's the only way I can describe her. She's your life coach, sounding board, friend, sister, and that person that sometimes at 530 am has sunshine coming out of her bum and you want to punch but instead hug!! Because she's there for you!! She's changed my life to say the least. She always thinks of things that could motivate me, make me laugh when I want to cry, and just be a better person, not just physically but as a human being! It's not about the check in/out hour session for her when she is with you. She's personally invested in you and a cheerleader the whole time, whether you ask for it or not. ;) So having her as your trainer isn't what you get if you work with her. She treats you like you are literally her only client, is flexible, and has your best interest at heart at all times. She's a huge blessing in my life and honesty if you can pick... who wants some meathead trainer that could care less about you when you can have her?

I have known Lisa since 2008, From that moment, she worked with me to achieve my goals. She developed me on a personal and cultural level. I was given an opportunity to study my postgraduate work in the States but it was how Lisa guided me and coached me on my career that I was able to excel in my position. I had a hard transition time but Lisa's coaching and determination helped me to create the life I envisioned.

Trust The Process. Those are the words I think about when I look at how much Jesse has helped me. Coach, Guide, Mentor, these words seem small. When I met Jesse I was a lost, overweight, newly divorced woman with ambitions and goals but no direction. Jesse took the time to get to know the real me. With that knowledge he was able to set me in a direction I could both see and understand. Through his guidance I have lost my excess weight and successfully kept it off. I am now the CEO of a burgeoning Wellness Center and a working goat farm. Jesse heard me and created steps to help me succeed. The process of getting from where I was, to where I am today was made easier with the personal program Jesse set up for me.

    John Carney was a great source of 'reason' for me in a time of chaos. He helped me to see beyond the fray, and focus on real-life issues. John brings a unique perspective that quickly differentiates undesirable symptoms from the root of the issue. I like to hit things head-on, and not waste time on incidentals. That's what John helped me to do! Can't say "THANK YOU" enough!

      Lesa is simply amazing! I've been working with Lesa since February and she has really helped me transform my life. When she came into my life by chance on a random encounter; I was not searching for a life coach and certainly didn't think I needed one until we started chatting. That's all she wrote for me! I was Wowed by how easy Lesa was to talk to and how when I spoke I knew she was listening to me with her whole heart and mind. I feel like Lesa brings a really unique aspect to this whole Life Coaching thing. She's definitely doesn't make our meetings feel like a therapy session or a dreaded appointment to talk about stuff. She's full of love, spunk, light, great listener and a strategic planner that has helped guide and assist me in tackling some of the issues I was having in an efficient and conscious manner. She also doesn't always tell me what I want to hear lol and I'm the kind of person that needs to hear the truth sometimes as I've been stuck in my old ways for a while and in my all too comfortable comfort zones She's helped me establish some much needed boundaries and has helped me plan for a better future in all aspects of my life. Thank you Lesa for helping me turn my life around and getting me from a "Surviving" status to a "Thriving" status!

        Cory and I worked together for a few months and in that amount of time I was able to give my life a complete 180 degree turn. I found a job I love and am excelling quickly in the position, I moved into a home with people I respect and I'm excited to share a space with them over the next year, and I was able to strengthen my relationship and respect with myself and hold myself accountable to my short and long-term goals. Cory has given me many tools to use in times of stress and has given me the confidence to tackle all that lies ahead in my future with ease and grace. I am so grateful that I was able to work with her and would recommend her coaching to anyone who may feel lost or lacking control in their lives. She not only helped shed light on my strengths, but she let me see my ability to shine on my own.

        Will was a life coach for a very dear friend with health issues, both physically & mentally. Will was very loving, caring, patient and kind. Will showed true compassion to my friend. I would entrust Will to coach any family member or friend. He shows patience & compassion but at same time can be very stern if need be. Will be a great asset to any company & will do great with his own company. Lois Kirkus

        Jennifer is an amazing fitness and nutrition coach that has helped me change my health, my physique and my eating habits. She takes the time to get to know you and your life and continues to motivate you to want better for yourself. She's not a drill sergeant, but still holds you accountable and makes you go the extra mile all with a smile. I have muscles in places I didn't event know I could get them. I'm in better shape then I was during my college cheerleader days. Thanks Jen!

        Dr. Corbin helped my son focused on a career path after graduating from college. He listened to my son and helped him figure out his strengths that he could bring to any employer. Dr. Corbin also provided excellent suggestions on how to network using social media and LinkedIn. Dr. Corbin made himself available whenever we needed to speak to him. He was always pleasant and helpful and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to shine above others.

        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

        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.

        How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

        When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

        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.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
