No one “needs” a coach (except Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google said “Everyone needs a coach”). Regardless, the ROI of reaching your goal with a coach is 700%. If you are stuck or really ready to make a big change, use a coach. If it’s not us find someone that you trust and that trusts you-and ask about their experience. It’s one of the few professions that’s not highly regulated so do your homework. It’s a relationship. It’s intense. It’s worth it.

A coach generally works 1:1 (although group coaching and team coaching can be an option) and is there to maximize and optimize a client's inherent goals and talents. A coach may have an expertise but should not push an agenda. A consultant has a technical expertise in a particular area and advises on the specific agendas, often working with multiple people in a company.
