Life Coach

A very good friend is at a crossroads career wise and was thinking about consulting a life coach. Has anyone done this? Or can make a recommendation. He's in his mid 50s and he's in a big job so it would probably need to be someone very experienced. Any tips or advice greatly appreciated.
