A Little Peace of MindPractitioner Program
If your life has been changed by the work that we do here at A Little Peace of Mind and you’d love the opportunity to start a new career (or side-career) helping others struggling with anxiety, with heaps of practical experience and in-depth personal support, then the Little Peace of Mind Practitioner Program has been designed just for you.
Every month, I’m asked to provide way more private coaching sessions that I have the resources to deliver and with over 70,000 people around the world already part of the Little Peace of Mind family and growing all the time, we need more people out there doing this work.
So I’ve come up with something I think is pretty cool:)
A comprehensive 6 month Little Peace of Mind Practitioner Training Program that’s completely unique due its small and intimate nature, personal coaching and support and provided-for-you practice clients to help you build your confidence and experience.
Places will be limited to a maximum of 6 participants to allow for my personal guidance and support throughout.
The in-person training comprises of two four-day intensives, both held in Surrey, UK.
Please note: Attendance at both of these is compulsory.
1. The Foundations Intensive: 15-18 September 2019
This kicks off our 6 month journey together. Here we’ll explore areas such as:
=> Deepening your own grounding in this understanding – the degree to which you live in peace and wellbeing is the degree to which you’ll be able to support others to do the same
=> Getting clear on how valuable YOUR individual contribution to others could be
=> Understanding what creates impact in others and getting some practical experience of what it’s like to coach and be coached.
2. The Practical Intensive: 26-29 January 2020
Here you’ll have the opportunity to work with one client over the period of the intensive, with my personal support.
This will enable you to
=> Gain confidence in delivering your own personal coaching intensives
=> See the impact of this way of working for yourself
=> Get real-time support as you coach your client over a period of time
There’s no better way to learn more about what it means to be a Practitioner than by diving right in and doing the work itself, all with my support.
As part of your training, you’ll be expected to complete 60 hours of coaching over the 6 months of the program, the majority of which will be with current Little Peace of Mind clients provided to you.
(Don’t worry, we’ll make it very clear to them that you’re in training!)
Client Q&A Calls:
You’ll have the opportunity to run one of our weekly client Q&A calls with me, and possibly to do at least one solo. This is a great opportunity to get familiar with yet another format you may wish to consider offering as part of your future coaching offerings.
If you’d like to, you can also take on the role of Community Manager for the 6 months of the program. This gives you experience of yet another way to interact with clients and you can learn how effective (or not sometimes!) this form of support can be.
The Practical Intensive:
And of course, we also have the Practical Intensive as outlined above which counts towards your 60 hours.
I will personally be providing all your training and 1:1 support throughout the program.
Monthly Personal Coaching Call: Each month, we’ll get together on zoom to take at look at your own personal grounding and understanding. Every client that comes to you, and every conversation you have with them will be impacted only and always by your current level of understanding. That understanding is what we’ll explore together in the context of YOUR life during these sessions.
Monthly Mentoring Call: Each month, you’ll submit one of your client calls for review and we’ll use that call as a basis for developing your understanding of common issues clients bring to their sessions and the way you respond. All to help you go deeper with your clients and give you the confidence to do this work ‘for real’ after you certify.
Please note: all 1:1 sessions with me will take place between the hours of 9am and 3pm UK time.
What’s In It For You?
a brand new career path
a way to pass it forward
No doubt, you’re so grateful for the difference this understanding has made to your life and you know you want to to pass it onto others. This is your chance to do so.
a chance to build relationships
Delivering 60 coaching hours to clients and all the other practical experience in the program gives you a unique opportunity to build relationships with potential future clients that may decide to hire you as their coach once you graduate.
be comfortable with a variety of formats
By the end of the 6 months, you will have conducted 60 one-to-one coaching calls, at least one group coaching call, a mini-intensive and possibly Facebook support – all with my support.
This is a great opportunity to find out what formats you’d love to include in your future work.
be part of the ALPOM inner circle
Working so closely together for 6 months means you get to see behind the scenes of how a successful coaching business operates and how the Principles-based understanding influences how a coaching practice grows in a very real and practical way.

Ready to Apply?
There are only 6 places available, so with that in mind, if you’ve read through all the details above, and are happy with the investment in time and finances involved, I’d like to invite you to apply for the program. The first round of applications will close on Sunday 9th June, and calls scheduled with eligible participants on 12, 13 and 14 June.
What's the plan after I complete the training?
You can set yourself up as a coach or practitioner with your own website, prices and coaching arrangements. Go find more clients – after all you will have a wealth of experience by the time you certify. PLUS you’ll be on the Little Peace of Mind website as a recommended coach – our clients will be sent to this list when they ask us for 1:1 coaching. No referral fees to pay to us – clients make all arrangements with you directly.
We’re simply grateful to have wonderful Practitioners to share with our clients.
Who is a good fit to apply to become a Practitioner?
You need to have completed either the 30 Day, 6 Week or 12 Week Little Peace of Mind Program and been seen a change in your own life as result. It’s helpful if you have experience in your own life with anxiety and stress, but not essential as long as you have compassion those struggling with this.
You must be up for a crazy packed 6 months of fun and challenge and be fully committed to every element of the training.
What happens after the first year?
Your successful completion of the training means you’ll be listed on our website as a recommended Little Peace of Mind Practitioner with a link to your own website for 12 months.
Following that, there will be an annual fee of £200 (plus VAT) to remain as a listed Practitioner.
How much time will training as a Practitioner take?
You’ll need to attend both four day intensives (the first day of each begins at 3.30pm). The monthly coaching and mentoring calls will be 60 minutes each and you must also set aside time to re-listen to your submitted coaching call before we speak. The Q&A calls that you are invited to run are 60 minutes each and each of the 60 coaching calls will also be an hour.
Yes. This program requires a hefty time commitment!
Will the practice clients be paying for the sessions with me?
I want to take all thinking about money off the table for you. And the clients 🙂
With that in mind, each client will be asked to donate £10 to the Hunger Project charity to be eligible for a session with you.
Can you revoke my position as a Practitioner once I've trained?
I don’t imagine this happening as I’m trying to make sure I bring the right people on board for this but yes. I can withdraw your Practitioner position at my discretion. If you’re an arse. If you do anything illegal, unethical or unkind (also comes under the ‘being an arse’ category. If you are offered a place on the training you’ll be sent a contract that explains what ‘being an arse’ is in fancy legal terms. If any of these situations arise, of course we’ll talk about it first, but my decision as to whether you can continue as a Practitioner will be final.
Ooooooh, I sound very strict! Seriously, I want my Practitioners to be world-class and operate based on love and understanding. Do that and we should be OK.
What if I've already trained as a Coach or Practitioner?
Then this program isn’t for you. I am currently developing a more advanced mentoring program for already certified coaches and practitioner – please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to be sent details of that when it’s ready.
I still have questions
