Working with Lynda Monk feels like stepping into a fantastical dream. In that dream are the play-tools of a new life, a life full of possibility, charm, deep warmth and insight. The gift of working with Lynda as a coach helped me to complete important projects and opened the door to my life’s next steps. I am very grateful for her skills, intuition and heartfilled cheerleading!
“Lynda and Creative Wellness’s ability to be flexible and responsive to our agencies needs was tremendous! The staff are excited about developing self care plans and look forward to working with Lynda again.”
I used your CD in my group therapy session on Monday night, with overwhelmingly positive responses from my clients who are all working people with a variety of stressors and life struggles. We used #6, Progressive relaxation. This is particularly good for a number of reasons; Peter’s voice is very soothing, the rhythm and cadence of his speech not rushed nor excessively slow. This length of the exercise is perfect in that working people can easily wrap their minds around taking 10 minutes out of their day to practice the relaxation response. Well done! We may be ordering a box of these wonderful CD’s!
Lynda presents very difficult and challenging material in a very kind and gentle way that provides participants with the safety required to learn while they explore personal trauma. Lynda’s committment to ensuring that professionals take time to address their own trauma or vicarious trauma needs – enables participants to engage in those courageous conversations necessary to maintaining professional humility.
Lynda has that rare gift of being able to write in a way that is both theoretically sound as well as personally engaging. She uses her experience as a front-line practitioner, educator, and consultant to great effect, consistently writing in a voice that is compelling and thoughtful. Her written work reveals her concern for quality and attention to detail. Lynda writes with authority, compassion, and integrity.
Three words come to mind when reflecting on the work provided by Lynda Monk: Passion, Commitment and Innovation. Lynda leaves a trail of legacy, our ministry has certainly benefited from our partnership with her in the areas of training and organizational health.
Inspiring, helpful, enjoyable.

When I first came for coaching I did not know what to expect. I am surprised at how quickly things went from feeling very confused and muddy to a place of greater joy and clarity. I would recommend coaching with Lynda to anyone going through life changes. This coaching exceeded my expectations – it had a lot of substance to it. I feel like a veil has been pulled aside and I am feeling ready to live my life more fully.
