Hi my name is Nikki I'm 29 and I randomly reached out to Angela for weight loss training, guidance, support, and we have communicated through email this whole time, never meeting her in person she has helped me lose 40 pounds just through her awesome knowledge and support! Even in my lowest times she still was there. I went from 380 to 348 I can't believe this is happening to me because I've literally tried everything you could think of and nothing has worked until I met her. And I haven't even worked out even though she's suggested it. She's helped change my eating habits and that alone has already changed my life! I would recommend anyone who is desperate , hungry for change and for anyone who just wants a new found self love. Angela will help you love yourself and treat yourself with respect and a big part of that is making healthy choices. But like I said I couldn't do it without her. And she's all I have. Thank you Angela!! I look forward to many more sessions!

Two months ago, I realized my depression had to end, so I looked to Colleen for guidance in both my personal and professional life. Since day one, Colleen's sessions have been non-invasive, with questions that carried me into finding the pit of my emotions, negativity and fear on my own. But even when I was lost for words, Colleen led me to answers because of her ability to open up my perceptions and perspectives. Two months ago, I did not feel happy. I did not like who I was. Now, after adopting new mindsets and working toward goals that Colleen helped me with, I realized that I am worthy of happiness, and that happiness was with me all along. I like who I am now, and I'm excited to continue growing. Great thanks to Colleen for this shift to a brighter life.

Well, like everybody else I was needing a professional guidance to clarify a doable strategy so I could succeed in my career. It happens that I found Tom and on a 45 minutes call he heard me, understood my main problem and put me on the right track. I strongly believe in our work together and specially in the results we can get. I trust on his professionalism and commitment to unlock my deepest potential. I was shooting on the stars and he helped me hit the sun. =)

    Hannah’s no-nonsense approach to training is perfect for those who are serious about reaching their fitness goals. She is attentive to individual needs, not only able to provide guidance not just in the gym, but at the table too with a customized nutrition plan to compliment workouts. Hannah is meticulous in perfecting form, while also pushing to bust through plateaus with varied workouts to attack each muscle group. At the same time, she is mindful of any injuries one may have, and is never stumped for an alternative way to get the same workout in. Respectful, yet direct, she will keep you accountable for what you put into the gym without completely destroying your soul, encouraging you to dig deeper to push out that one extra rep, or rally for that last set to make it the best set. If you’re looking for the perfect balance in a trainer, you just found her.

    I have worked with Zane over the last two years. It has been a very rewarding experience. Zane is not only smart and able to quickly understand what I am communicating, he asks questions and provides insight that helps me focus on the elements I can work on most efficiently. In addition to personal growth work, Zane has also helped me make a career transition that was intimidating and confusing. I have no hesitations on recommending him as a counselor. – Jesse

    When I made the decision to hire a life coach, I looked and met with several different people. The moment I met Lisa, I knew she was meant for me. I was at a point in my life where I felt stuck, confused and didn't know how to move forward. She not only gave me the tools to manage all the things going on in my life but she also held me accountable and really supported me in reaching my goals in the time I spent with her. She was there for me whenever I needed her and I always walked away from a meeting with her feeling empowered. Hiring her was one of the best things I've done for myself so if you're looking for some guidance or clarity in your life, hire Lisa. She's amazing and I've never been in a better place than I am right now. I always had it in me but she showed me the way and I'm forever thankful.

    My first job out of college was a nightmare that I didn't know how to wake up from. Sarah worked with me for 8 weeks, and in 9 weeks I had found another career path for myself. My experience with Sarah didn't end there. I received mentorship and life coaching during that time, but the journey continued. I know Sarah will always be supporting and guiding me on that journey for years to come. Working with her is a more than a career jump or timeline, it is life altering and lasts years.

    I’m glad I didn’t click away, working with Anthon was the best career decision I ever made. I first signed onto thumbtack when I was going through a career change, and needed someone to help me with my resume. When Anthon sent me his profile initially, I thought to myself, this guy has got to be too good to be true, he had industry experience from Microsoft, had reviewed over 50,000 resumes, and hired over 2000 engineer. I was excited and skeptical at first, but it turned out to be a great match. Anthon not only optimized my resume, he used his network to set me up with mock interviews so I could get practice with real engineers. He introduced me to tons of closed networking groups where jobs are advertised, and was willing to use all his resources to help me achieve my goal of breaking into the tech industry. I started talking to Anthon around December, and by mid february, I had received a great job offer, but he didn’t stop there. He helped me create a model for salary negotiation which got me a 10k raise on my offer. It’s a no brainer who you should work with, because Anthon is the best person for the job.

    About

    My hypnotherapy/counseling work stands out from others in my business because, I've probably been where you are now. I have a lot of life experience, so I understand what you're going through. I take the time needed at each session (1-2 hours) to help you feel better. I charge by the session, not by the hour. If you hire me to officiate at a ceremony, you will know that you will receive more than from others. I'm been performing ceremonies, and teaching others to, since 1996. So I've performed hundreds of weddings, everything from traditional Christian to very Pagan. I believe that it's YOUR day, not mine or anyone else's. I also officiated at memorials, baby blessings, vow renewals, plus other life changing/life phase ceremonies.

    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.
