 Lynda Monk, MSW, RSW, CPCC presents:

Transofrmational Journaling for Coaches & Our Clients

This webinar is approved for TBA CCEU

Description of Event

During this interactive webinar, participants will be introduced to Life Source Writing™.  This is a 5-step transformational journaling method that can help both coaches and clients alike to gain clarity, reduce stress and manifest desired results.  In addition to being an awareness building and action planning tool, journaling and expressive writing are proven ways to improve emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual health.  The writing and wellness connection will also be explored in this webinar.

Transformational journaling is a powerful tool to integrate within the coaching relationship itself, and it is also a consciousness raising practice that can enrich and nourish us as coaches as we take time to listen within.  In this webinar, we will explore journaling as a creative evidence-based practice to help our clients gain new awareness and take inspired actions aligned with their values and goals.


Learning Objectives:

  • Explore the benefits of journaling for both coaches and clients

o   Who is journaling best suited for?

o   What considerations are needed to get the most out of journaling? 

o   What is helpful and what can be harmful (not all writing is healing and transformational)

  • Experience Life Source Writing – a 5 step reflective and mindful journaling method for increased insights, clarity and well-being
  • Learn about Writing Alone Together for journaling in community and within group coaching programs
