    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 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!

      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.

      What a life changing experience to work with Saba. She helped to me find my purpose and passion which ultimately changed my life for the better. I walked aimlessly without knowing what my calling was. Without her knowledge and wisdom to help bring out the drive, motivation and will power I had inside myself, I wouldn't be where I am today.

      Every coach needs a coach. Every intuitive needs another intuitive. Shirahz is the best of both worlds. She has depth, is knowledgeable and present during every session, and she helps me clear soul, generational, and other blocks every time we do the work together. Because I'm ready for change and ready to do the hard work of being vulnerable, honest, and really looking at the trauma in my life, Shirahz is helping me bring the good back into my life in amazing ways. I can't say enough good things about this gifted woman. She finishes my thoughts -- and few ever even come close to that level of intimate knowledge without years and years of proving loyalty! If you have a Capricorn in your life, you know exactly what I mean when I say that we can be the most secretive, isolated individuals when we don't want anyone "in our way" and that tends to limit most Capricorns in all ways social. We just don't "trust" others. It becomes our greatest comfort and despair. Shirahz has enabled me to blossom in a mere short 4 weeks of working together through level one of Sacred Coaching's extensive, "brutal" 6 week courses. I am so full of love and gratitude for the divine work here and for Shirahz's incredible personality, capacity for love, and her talent of helping me rekindle my buried gifts, so that I can shine again in my own life and in the lives of those I am meant to touch.

      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.

      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.
