Creative Journaling is a Journey

Writing is a powerful medium for making sense of traumatic, stressful, or emotional events to improve physical and psychological health. As a way to manage overwhelming emotions, journaling is a helpful medium for managing anxiety, reducing stress and coping with depression. It is also a powerful way to transmute negative thoughts and behaviors into calm, positive self-talk, elevated mood and new creative thinking  for coping with challenges. Among the many benefits of journaling, writing promotes and enhances the creative self. Applying an evidence-based approach, you will learn how to use journaling with clients that has immediate and long-term benefits.

Mentor Agility’s trauma informed coaches are trained with specific skill sets for behavior change helping clients reconfigure their self narrative, set goals, increase motivation, generate accountability and increase performance. Coaches learn how to work with trauma, burnout, and stress to alleviate distress and help clients make better choices. By assisting clients in adjusting everyday behaviors to support resiliency, overall health and wellness, improve habits, reduce stress and create a new story that excites and motivates the client, coaches can help clients move into a growth mindset and get their lives on a track with creativity and excitement.

What makes our coaching approach distinctive from other programs is our application of the coaching core competencies through the lens of storytelling. Trainees will learn how to use the step-by-step coaching process using the playful and imaginative Hero’s Journey® Change Model designed to ignite clients intrinsic motivation.
