What my clients have to say about working with me.
“I had the privilege of working with Chantal for 6 months. As a female in a leadership role which consistently requires a significant amount of time while simultaneously trying to balance the challenges of my personal life, I found myself overwhelmed and unable to truly identify what I want from MY life. I found myself consistently working to complete the never-ending “to-do” list, but felt that I was lacking personal fulfilment from both my work and personal life. There was no time to breathe, to reflect, or engage in self-care. In fact, the term self-care was not even part of my vocabulary. I was mentally and physically exhausted, and struggling to find (and hold onto) “my happy”. Six months later, I am a different person. I am stronger. I am better able to draw my boundaries in my personal and professional life. I am better able to communicate my needs. I am better able to assert myself. And I have identified the core values that I will not compromise in any of my life decisions. I have a better sense of what brings me joy, and I no longer feel apologetic or guilty for these things but rather am learning to embrace the value in self-care. My relationship with my partner is stronger, and as a leader, I am learning to accept that although my approach to leadership may be counter to others – that does not make it wrong. I learned what my inner strengths are – my super powers – and I’m working to use them in my daily life. I learned about the beliefs that often hold me back, and I’m working to fight against – to use them as enablers rather than disablers. I am still a work-in-progress, and I always will be. But Chantal has given me the tools to figure out how to find and maintain my happiness. Through her expertise in positive psychology, I was alerted to the ways I was (unintentionally) sabotaging my happiness. And through her kindness, thoughtfulness, and empathetic nature, she helped me find my authentic self. I truly feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with and learn from her. She changed my life, of this I am sure.
Josephine, Expat, The Netherlands
“I would want to give everyone the gift of getting coached by Chantal. In a very short amount of time she helped me gain insight into what’s really important to me in my life. This helped me to focus on what really matters. Before, my attention was diffused. I got distracted easily and often felt overwhelmed. Chantal’s humor, positive energy and pragmatic approach helped me to get real about what I truly want for myself in life. Through a simple and effective process she helped me discover my strengths, my core values and my deepest desires. To my biggest surprise, right after our final session, some of my deepest desires manifested into reality. I could hardly believe it. Thank you, Chantal”
Ester, Business Owner, The Netherlands
“I tend to run before I learn how to walk. Therefore I told Chantal I wanted to do a six-month coaching instead of a three-month one. In that time, and step by step, she helped me develop tools and strategies to achieve my goals: I wanted to feel good, inside and out. Being healthy is about balance, and about knowing yourself better in order to take good care of your body, mind and soul. Changes were gradual so I had the time to process, which only makes me have great confidence in that new habits are here to stay. Chantal was amazing at all times; she is knowledgeable, experienced and kind, and she is ready to provide encouragement at every step of the road. I do feel now much better, inside and out. But, most importantly, I now have a wonderful array of tools that help me navigate the good, the rough and the hectic times.”
Mariana, Phd student, The Netherlands
“I’m doing really well, I’m very happy with life […] I often think of the things I learned with you, the vision, the values, etc, they’ve helped me keep a sense of direction and I keep checking in with ‘me’ to see if life matches what I really want, it’s not always easy but I feel I’m better equipped to do it, I have to really thank you for that.”
Mary, Academic, France
“The outcome of our coaching time together exceeded all my expectatons. I feel physically and mentally stronger. I am grateful for the relaxed and fun way in which Chantal coached me and for all things I have learned from her.”
Lydia, Business Owner, Spain
“In a relaxed, positive and attentive way, Chantal handed me tools and advice to create balance in my physical body and at the same time helped me bring structure and calmness to my daily life. Go see her yourself, you will be surprised!”
