A year of unemployment, a failed relationship and moving back -in with my parents had taken its toll on my self-esteem. I generally have a positive outlook on life, but I was beginning to lose hope. I read self-help books and attempted to visualize positive outcomes for myself, but all I could manage to see, was myself at the bottom of a dark well trying (unsuccessfully) to reach a rope. I interpreted this recurring image as evidence that I was quite literally “at the end of my rope”.
Fortunately, I came across Chantell’s post in a facebook group dedicated to empowering women. I took a chance and contacted her, because I had nothing to lose. At a time in my life when I was struggling, her kindness and generosity were a marvelous gift. Working with Chantell has been an incredibly rewarding experience. She is perceptive and wise and unafraid to challenge me when I need to be confronted with something. I have now come to realize that she is the rope I kept seeing in my “failed” visualisations. She is the one who has helped me climb out of the dark place I was stuck in. I don’t know what would have happened to me if I had not encountered Chantell, but I do know that my life is a better, kinder, richer journey because I have been privileged enough to cross paths with her. Although we have never met in person, the impact she has had upon my life will remain with me for as long as I walk on this earth. I don’t think that there are enough words to convey the gratitude I feel towards her. I can only say that I am very grateful that she took a chance on me, especially when I was done believing in myself. Thank you a million times over!
“I have just finished a couple of introductory sessions with Chantell and am still amazed at the results and the clarity she helped me gain in such a short time. She very quickly tuned into and helped me to identify exactly where I was at and offered insights and suggestions of how to move forward. The second session was where she helped me create an inspiring and exciting goal and get into the state of what that would be like having that in my life.
The net result of these sessions with Chantell has been a dramatic increase in my clarity and productivity. I now have a powerfully compelling and exciting goal for the year ahead and I no longer feel stalled and have actually produced more content and achieved more mini goals in just a few days than in many previous months.
I highly recommend Chantell and the coaching service she provides. She has a lovely vibrancy and high energy and I always felt she knew exactly what she was doing and how to bring out the best in me. I really enjoyed my time with her and obviously am very happy with the results from our coaching sessions.”

“Chantell Vermaak-Johnson, my Life Coach and ‘life-line’. Chantell was and still is my driving instructor on this endless journey to self-discovery and personal growth. Without her, there would be no book. Thank you, Chantell, for all the ‘tough love’ when I needed it most.”
