    Working with Hannah has been a life changing experience. She is a professional that can accommodate all levels of fitness from the elderly to the adolescent. In my case , I am middle aged and was out of shape with limited range of motion and little muscle mass. The results I've experience, which takes time and patience, have been due to being steady and consistent and trusting Hannah as my guide. She has been there 110% and helped me find confidence and strength I didn't think I had. I managed to stay focused on my goal to get strong and fi without getting hurt. I highly recommend her as a trainer, coach and fitness expert.

    I loved having Cara as my nutritional Coach. She was not only knowledgeable with nutrition and workouts, she is passionate about it as well. She genuinely cares how her clients are doing on their program, and if there needs to be any adjustments she changes them quickly! I would recommend Cara to anyone who needs some fitness coaching.

    I have often thought I needed a coach and did not have a clue how to find one or how to know when I had found the coach I needed. I am so very fortunate to find Keith Thompson. What I liked most about Keith is he went below the surface to help me discover what was holding me back. It was not just having me do a series of tasks. It was that of course and I learned what was holding me back and how to correct it forever. He is an outstanding listener and ask the right questions to stimulate my thoughts. If you are looking for a great coach, look no further.

      I hired Andrew as my Leadership Coach, and he was exactly what I needed. Not only was he professional and gave great coaching, but he would also go the extra mile with extra resources or research or just checking in on me from time to time. I will definitely be getting coaching from him again in the future!

      Oh man I love working with Jessica. From the moment I met her, I felt like I was being seen in vibrant color for the first time. She cares deeply about people and man does it show in her coaching. What I love most about Jessica is her ability to stand boldly for her clients. I always feel like she has my back when she's in my orbit, and is going to nudge me forward to a place where I can stand in my full power. I trust her deeply and always feel spoiled being able to soak up her wisdom. It's clear she has a ton of rich experience to draw from, and it serves her well as coach. Bottom line is - Jessica gets it - she's the real deal. I'm a significantly stronger, better person for having had the chance to know her.

      I did not fully understand the benefit of meeting with a Life Coach until my experience with Carolyn. As a Life Coach she not only provided insight into some of my experiences but reinforced them with analogy for my optimal understanding and perspective. She allowed for complete honesty, safety, trust and connectivity to my desired goals and expectations professional/personal. I feel that Carolyn has empowered me with a multitude of tools/resources required for success on my life journey. Lastly, I would like to add that a few of her attractive qualities are active listening,insightful, positivity and pragmatic just to name a few, all of which are key components for coaching those whom seek more instruction for navigating life’s success. I highly recommend scheduling a consult with Carolyn it will change your life!!

      It would be hard to overstate Tristan's skill as a Personal Empowerment Coach. She listens deeply to her clients and has an uncanny knack for insight into their path. She has helped me especially with my relationship with my elderly mother. She has helped me navigate my small art business. Many good business decisions have developed after talking with Tristan. I would especially recommend her exceptional workshops. She is just a joy - her workshops are fun! Tristan is a gifted leader and she has changed my life for the better.

      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.
