About me

About Chantal van den Broek

Let me take you back in time. As a child, I felt unsure of myself and believed I could never live up to the expectations of those around me. To compensate for my insecurity, I attracted people who were self-confident.

I see in hindsight these people were domineering. Subconsciously, I developed a pattern of people pleasing and came up against challenges involving dominating and narcissistic behaviour.

After my relationship of 15 years ended, I began to understand why dominating behaviour had crossed my path. Why I was continuously confronted with domination at work, was something I couldn't place at that time. But I did know that they way it made me feel did not serve me; it kept me small.

That insight was the first step in my inner awareness. I include my own experience with dominating behaviour at work and in relationships in my coaching.


Process of awareness in others

My life experiences, consultancy work and coaching, have taught me to get to the root of an issue quickly, make connections and see underlying problems. I am an experienced collaborator at all levels and am familiar with a wide range of requests for help. Achieving the desired result is always a priority for me. Communication is the key when it comes to initiating change in people. A lot of people see me as interesting because I do my own thing and follow my heart, and work purposefully for the client. I make no distinction between individual and corporate because the human aspect is always central. Becoming empowered is a process of awareness in which I am happy to help and guide you.

Empower Yourself Mission and Vision

After a process of inner awareness, applying my knowledge and life experience to a wide audience has become my mission, because that way, I am able to offer support to others using my holistic approach. I help them in their process of becoming aware and provide practical tools which they can use to achieve their goals.

By tackling the real core problem, the transformation process in people and organisations is set in motion. This is immediately a good illustration of my vision. It is the way to resolve emotions, triggers and blocks, traumas and limiting beliefs. The result is that every goal is achievable.

Using the methods I developed, I get people to take action and provide them with the tools for achieving their goals, a step at a time.

The EMPOWER model was designed based on my own life experiences and the support I provided as a consultant to major clients. I developed the model for Empower Yourself.

Once you understand and apply this model, you will save at least 10 years you would otherwise spend on self-development. Use this time to enjoy yourself and do what you were put on this earth to do.

Why the EMPOWER model

The EMPOWER model is your guide for any goal you want to achieve. Examples of goals may be: take a trip around the world, become mother, or entrepreneur. Tackle all your limitations using this unique model and turn them into positive behaviour.

I developed the model in such a way that you can continue to apply it for the rest of your life. I personally use the model every day for more structure, overview and focus.

Take steps towards your goal and discover: happiness is a choice.

  • E - mE first!
    Put yourself first. You are the most important person in your life. It is essential to act from this basis.
  • M – Adopt a positive Mindset
    Your mindset can help you grow, or cause you to get stuck. Do you want to keep thinking negatively or do you want to have positive thoughts?
  • P – Be Proactive
    Change demands action and proactive action. That is how you achieve the goals that are important to you
  • O – Overcome limiting beliefs
    On the path towards your goal you will encounter limiting beliefs. Investigate where they come from.
  • W – Work on resistance
    There are times that you experience resistance. It is important to feel what lies hidden behind that resistance.
  • E – Keep your Emotions in balance
    To remain empowered in every situation, it is important to be in control of your emotions.
  • R – Celebrate Results
    Dealing with challenges and situations is a process of letting go of triggers, blocks and of detaching from situations and people. Communicate from your power and celebrate the result.
