Wholistic, educational, inclusive – I am taking real tools and excitement about expanding my practice.
Purposeful, therapeutic, peaceful – encouragement to commit time to the worthiness of my writing practice.
During the course of my busy life, one of the best ways to take care of myself is to recognize when to just stop and take the time to rejuvenate by not feeling as though I will be letting someone else down! I found the overall tone of the Creative Wellness Guided Meditations CD to be very soothing, the music was a lovely compliment to the messages being shared. I particularly found myself drawn to the self care track. As a busy caregiver with a bit of a superwoman complex, it was a very powerful reminder that in order to be effect and caring to other I must first care for myself properly. Listening to this meditation was like receiving a permission slip to take some time off to do what fulfills me most… and I accepted it (which never comes easily to me)- so thank you!
Inspiring, helpful, enjoyable.
Powerful, tender, empowering.
In 2000, Lynda Monk came to my office and we talked on bringing her in on a trial basis to offer training courses related to how stress affected not only fire fighters but their families. Having sat through these presentations before and at first going in with a pre-conceived notion that it wouldn’t be of any use to me, I knew that it might be a hard sell to the fire fighters. That first session we had 25 fire fighters present. Three hours later, they were all sold on her approach to the issue and looked forward to her next sessions. We now run at least one session per year utilizing Creative Wellness and they are one of the highest attended training courses. Lynda Monk is very approachable, likeable and down-to-earth. She can communicate readily at any level, thus my fire fighters really appreciate her sessions.
As helping professionals we focus our energy on advocating for others, often forgetting about ourselves. Lynda understands the importance of nurturing the nurturer and offers an invaluable service. My coaching with Lynda is an investment in my own wellness. As a result of my coaching with Lynda I am finding that I am able to create space for ‘being’ in the midst of all of the ‘doing’.
I chose to work with Lynda because I trust her judgment and integrity, not only on cognitive issues but also in emotional matters. She continually provides helpful feedback, suggestions, insight and encouragement. I am really pleased with the results so far, especially Lynda’s support and encouragement as I progress in the writing of a sometimes painful Memoir. As a direct result of my coaching relationship with Lynda, I find that I am writing with renewed energy, enthusiasm and commitment. I highly recommend Lynda Monk and Creative Wellness. Lynda’s coaching is a gift you can give yourself. Some one who is there for you, and only for you, during the time you spend together.
This was an amazing oasis of warmth and reflection in the midst of a demanding, fast-paced life.
While I was working as a training manager for a First Nations organization in B.C. I worked with Lynda Monk on a number of occasions. She worked with us in the capacity of trainer and curriculum developer. I always found Lynda to be professional, knowledgeable, skilled and caring communicator. I always received excellent feedback on her training from training participants who commented on her energetic training style and her comprehensive knowledge of content. I highly recommend Lynda for any task associated with training and/or curriculum development in her area of expertise.
