How to Find a Life Coach
The Life Coach Magazine Directory is coming soon! In the meantime, here are some of the best places to look for a life coach.
Noomii is the largest directory of professional coaches online—and it’s free!
Those looking for coaches can complete a brief questionnaire and receive a response within just a couple of hours. Noomii will recommend one to three coaches who are a match for your desired coaching outcomes. You’ll then get a free 15-minute consultation with each one to determine which is right for you.
You can also browse the directory of 10,000+ coaches and listen to Noomii’s interview with each one. Then request a consultation with those you feel are a good fit.
Visit www.noomii.com to get started.

Bark is a directory where local service providers from a variety of industries can connect with clients. Customers complete a brief questionnaire about the services they’re looking for, and Bark sends those leads to those professionals whose profiles are a fit.
For coaches who create a profile on the site, Bark charges a small one-time fee for each lead you choose to respond to. After that, there are no commissions or ongoing costs, so all the earnings are yours.
To get started as a client or coach, visit Bark’s website.
Thumbtack is a popular service that connects you with professionals in your area. You can find everything from an electrician to a tennis instructor. And you can also find life coaches!
The advantage of Thumbtack is that you can see verified reviews of any coaches you might be interested in working with. Since the platform is focused on finding professionals in your area, the coaches in your results will be local. You can also filter by coaching topics like career, positive habits, stress management, relationships, and spirituality.

The Life Coach School
The Life Coach School has a directory of coaches on their website. These coaches have all been certified through the Life Coach School certification program. The Life Coach School is a popular and well-respected organization in the life coaching community.
These coaches have a range of specialties including weight loss coaching, over-drinking (helping you stop drinking), confidence and mindset coaching, relationships and marriage coaching, business coaching, health and wellness coaching, motherhood and raising kids, and even specific business verticals like real estate coaching, public speaking, doctors, and more.
Many also have specific backgrounds like Christian, LDS life coaches, Buddhist, stay at home moms, etc. Most of these coaches are women, so if you’re looking for a female life coach, you’re in luck!

Transformation Academy is another coach certification program that maintains a directory of their grads.
One of the things we love about TA is the vast catalog of specialties, so it makes sense that their directory reflects the huge variety of coaches trained to focus on a specific niche. You can filter for a coach whose specialty is spirituality, confidence, happiness, and more. There’s also the possibility of choosing a coach based on location.
Transformation Academy is one of our top picks for coach training (get all the details in our review). With more than 700,000 students now having graduated with a Transformation Academy certificate for coaching, it’s no wonder that this coaching directory is one of the largest.
Visit the directory to search for your perfect coaching fit.
International Coaching Federation
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) is a global organization dedicated to advancing coaching as a profession. They are well-established, respected, and set high standards for their coaching certifications. ICF certified coaches must meet stringent education and experience requirements, as well as mastery of core competencies set by ICF.
Find a Coach through Social Media
Facebook and Instagram are two great places to find coaches promoting their services. Try posting to Facebook asking if any of your friends know and life coaches. You’ll probably be surprised at the results. You can also check out the #lifecoach hashtag on Instagram, and you’ll find lots of coaches. Scroll through until you find some who resonate with you. You can even just start following some until you decide you’re ready to have an initial consultation.
Other Coaching Directories
There are many established, well-regarded coaching programs that will match you up with a coach. Here are just a few:
Finding the Best Coach For You
Finding the right coach can take some time, as well as trial and error. Following a coach on social media, talking to their past and current clients, and scheduling an initial consultation are some good ways to get a better sense of whether a coach is right for you.
