I am Chantal. I am a Co-Active Coach. I am a writer and a speaker. I am a community builder. I am a mother, wife and "the fixer"for my busy family. I am a collector of new and interesting experiences. I am an adventurer. I love challenging work, as much as I love having fun. I want to have it all. And I want that for my clients too.
I have a wide-range of educational and professional experience. I am a trained Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) with the Co-Active Training Institute CTI®, (the largest in-person coach training school in the world and the only program to teach CTI's ground-breaking Co-Active Coaching® model). I am also an Associate Certified Coach with the International Coaches Federation (ICF). I have a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies, and a Bachelor of Education.
My professional experience includes teaching in Japan, China, the Czech Republic and Canada. I have also worked in Sales, Training and Human Resources with Yellow Pages (formerly Telus Yellow Pages). I have facilitated a variety of courses and workshops for community groups.
I feel my greatest personal and professional accomplishment, was fulfilling my dream of writing and publishing my novel, Gypsy Dreams, which I published in 2014. Realizing that lifelong dream, made me conscious of how accessible it is for everyone to reach their personal and professional goals. It sparked my interest in wanting to help other people have that same feeling of fulfillment.
That led me to co-creating a women's retreat and inspirational speaker series for women, from 2015-2018. The purpose of this work was to inspire women to know their true value and live a life of their own design.
Currently, I am most interested in working with growth-minded individuals who want to make an impact in their world. Every person has their own unique gifts to share with the people they care about, their community and the world. There is so much potential in every individual. One of the most rewarding aspects of coaching is being able to witness the greatness in my clients and to help them experience their fullest potential.
If you feel that you could be more, do more, have more, and if you have a desire to be that person that you know you can be, coaching could help bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be. Whether you are interested in writing your book, creating or growing your business, finding meaning in every stage of your life , coaching can help you create what you want. It is about getting clarity on what you truly want, and then designing your life so that you can have it ... ALL.
If you have a sense that there is something more for you to be, do or have, it is possible. I would love to help you live that version of yourself. I encourage you to contact me, to set up a free session for you to experience coaching and see what it can do for you. I would love to work with you to create the life of your dreams.
