I'm laughing to myself seeing how Miss Audrie Henry is listed on this review page as a "Relationship Educator" (which she is), as I am truly the most relationship inept (Yes, I'm 50 years old and NEVER married). My selection of Miss Henry was prompted by my inquiry into looking for a Life Coach. As stated above, my age, and my career is what sent me on this quest to gain outside insight into what, if anything, I should do to ensure I'm on my correct path in life. Out of a list of many online advertised candidates, Miss Henry intrigued my inquiring mind. Her office is spare, yet comfortable. Quite simply, a type of meditation room for two, and this works. (There are throw pillows on the floor if you so desire). Miss Henry is personable and easy to interact with. She is questioning, but not intrusive. She gives you the opportunity to answer your own questions. Miss Henry is not overly clinical in her dealings, and does not make one feel to be a bug under a microscope. There were many people offering their licenses, and she certainly has her own titles to present, however, titles were not what I was looking for. I've worked with some people who have the alphabet at the end of their name. Certainly smart people who can pass tests, but tests of "bedside" manners they do not posses. Miss Henry has the wherewithal to be a counselor with insight. The path I am on is now more clearly visible thanks to the gentle guidance presented by Miss Audrie Henry.

I was impressed with how much Angela understood what I was trying to accomplish. We were able to come up with a plan that was actually workable for me to see the changes I want. I appreciated that she will have phone sessions also. This was my first experience with a Life Coach and I was happy with the progress I have made with Angela's help.

Hope is an excellent life coach and has helped me deal with many issues throughout our time together. She really does love helping people, I feel like she is really invested in my progress. Her joy at my success makes me feel good after the pain of growth. I mostly work with her on general life issues, but one of the many sessions we've done together is Career Clarity. During this session I was finally able to recognize what career path I wanted to take. It took me 35 years to find out what I want to do when I grow up, but at least I made it :) Thank you Hope!

Maribel was instrumental in assisting me on a variety of items for my career. I met her through an interview skills group meeting and quickly got a sense of her professionalism, knowledge, and helpful nature. Maribel went above and beyond her role as a career coach and provided many tips to improve my resume and interview skills. In our coaching session, she really helped me to dig deeper about my career goals as well as my personal aspirations. I would recommend her services because she has a wealth of experience and provides her clients with relevant skills to boost their careers.

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 had acquired Dee's services about two years back. Initially to make a purchase in her lovely shop of oils and stones among many other beautiful and unique items. Shortly thereafter, I began to attend her group mediations and realized how truly life changing her services were. It wasn't long after that when I saw her for spiritual guidance, reiki healing, and ultimately hypnotherapy. I can honestly say that ALL of the services she offers are life-changing but the benefits/results of my hypnotherapy sessions were truly life saving. Dee Woolridge is an amazing life coach, mentor, and healer!

    Roberta’s coaching has helped me discover my goals and the changes I needed to make to reach those goals. By asking specific and targeted questions, she showed me that I was capable of figuring out my own solutions. Roberta motivated me to move forward and kept me accountable by having me create action steps. Emphasis on follow through ensured that I continued to make progress. I appreciated the fact that I had her undivided attention without ever being concerned that she was judging me.

    Scott Goyette of Fitness 4 Mind and Body has been working with my 20 year old son for the past several months. My son is a college student who really had no plans for his future. He wasn’t completely sure what he wanted to study and he found succeeding in school to be a real challenge. He was opposed to being coached, but agreed to ONE meeting with Scott. That one meeting was all it took to convince him that he could benefit from working with Scott. Scott has helped him to develop a mission statement for his life and to lay out a plan to succeed on it. He is helping my son to identify his particular challenges and finding ways to overcome his obstacles. Scott has been extremely effective and getting my son to see things from a different perspective and act in a way that brings about positive change. The more my son succeeds with Scott’s help , the more he wants to grow and change – and the more he believes he can. Scott Goyette has been a true blessing.

    Learn to dance with your fire! As your trusted life coach and transformation strategist, it is my mission to be your advocate and to strive to elicit the best from you. I will work with you to move you towards your goals in healthy and inspiring ways. I will hold you accountable and challenge you to grow and do more than you think you can do. I might push, pull, and stretch you in ways you might find unexpected and perhaps uncomfortable, but like a good workout, once the (growing) pains subside, you will be stronger, healthier, and brighter inside. I will be exclusively focused on you and your goals, not mine. I will be your partner and confidant, with respect, optimism, care, and joy for all you are and wish to accomplish. Whether you're a talented, productive creative (artist, writer, musician, etc.); an entrepreneur or business owner; or a stable, capable, strong person wanting to live a truly full, rich, successful life with bipolar disorder, Asperger's, anxiety, or OCD, we all have one thing in common: a fire inside of us that illuminates and drives all that we do. It's not always easy living with this kind of fire! As much as it sustains and inspires us, it can also be hard to control, and sometimes damaging, if not handled with skill, respect and attention. Do you feel as if you're stuck in your path to a richer, healthier, more fulfilling life or career? Are you ready to assess and change old, rigid habits and learn ways to make your fire and drive work for you instead of against you? Our coaching partnership will help you move towards a deeper sense of total wellness, new creative and professional accomplishments, and healthier attitudes and habits. I will guide you towards understanding your motives, your needs, your dreams, and the most rewarding paths to a successful, illuminated life. I will help you to really listen to yourself and will be your guide on your inner journey towards strength, stability and happiness. Through this process, you will learn how to better manage, respect, and love your body and mind. You will learn how to dance with your fire!

    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.
