peace of mind

• for you • for others • for the planet

....because when one person finds their way home, there's a ripple effect.

This is how the world changes.

You change and your life will change. Because what you see is what you are.

the problem

If, when you look at yourself, your family and friends or the world, you see people consumed with fear and upset – if you’ve had enough of sleepless nights filled with worrying – if you’ve tried everything you know to change what’s going on that looks wrong – if you’re avoiding the news (or obsessively checking it) – if you’re insecure about your finances, your health, your work, climate change, your relationships, the current restrictions, or your own or someone else’s mental health – you’re fucked.

And change is impossible.

That’s because when we live and make decisions from this place of scarcity and insecurity, we innocently continue the  experience of fluctuating between attempting to control what’s going on and hopelessness when that doesn’t appear to work. Round and round in circles spiralling downwards, ever more frustrated, constricted and upset, which only reinforces the whole thing.

And then we spread those feelings into our touchpoints with others, who spread them further and further. Now the whole world’s fucked.

Or so it would seem.

We want to reverse the downward spiral. We can see the world requires it. But how?

The answer is –  it starts with you


You see, the way it really works, which most people don’t know, is inside-out.

For example: 

Feeling fearful? In that moment, you’ll see plenty to be scared of.

Feeling like you don’t have enough love/money/happiness/freedom? In that moment, you’ll see lack, limitation and scarcity all over the place.

Result? Running round like a headless chicken trying to ‘cope with’ or fix everything. Mostly ourselves.

But here’s the good news….

When you feel peace, in that moment you’ll feel connection with your fellow humans.

When you feel gratitude, in that moment you’ll see beauty.

When you feel love, in that moment you’ll see how we are all the same.

When you feel quiet, in that moment you know the oneness that lies behind all of life.

Result? The need to fix falls away, our self-obsession dissolves and instead we find ourselves moved in creative ways into action in a way that serves the whole.

And because we are each a tiny part of the whole, as one changes, do does the whole.

the solution

• coaching •
• curriculum •
• community •

There are three cornerstones to the program:

1. Curriculum: Each month, we’ll deep dive into a new theme with 21 days of videos and exercises designed to help you realise the truth of how you already are the change you wish you see in the world – and see this in your day-to-day life. For example, in February the theme is Being, in March we’ll explore Thriving and in April it’s the turn of Action. You’ll also have immediate access to my entire library of 28 Deeper Peace of Mind courses to dip in and out of as you choose.

2. Coaching: The first three Mondays of the month at 4pm Eastern/ 9pm UK, you’ll be invited to join me  via zoom for live coaching and exploration of how the changes we see in ourselves are reflected into the world around us. Please note, the calls will be on Tuesdays for the month of February. Each will be recorded if you’re unable to attend live.

3. Community: More than just a Facebook Group, I want to lead our Deeper Peace of Mind members on this journey together. Each learning, each actively engaged in exploration and sharing our findings with each other.

Please note: we’ll take a break in the months of August and December.

a little about nicola...

Nicola has been working with people as a coach for over 16 years. With Masters Degree in Psychology, she is also a Master Transformative Coach, has hundreds (if not thousands!) of coaching hours under her belt, created an organisation that has helped over 100,000 people with anxiety and stress and is the Hay House author of the book A Little Peace of Mind.

She founded A Little Peace of Mind after finding an end to her own struggles with panic attacks and anxiety and realising that insecurity lay behind every area of life including parenting, health, anxiety, creativity, work and relationships. This work represents her wish to help alleviate that suffering in others.

She created the Little Peace of Mind Practitioner program to pass forward what she has learned so that others can have the joy of doing this work and creating change in the lives of others.

a little about dicken...

Dr Dicken Bettinger has a Master’s degree from Pennsylvania State University and a Doctoral degree in counseling psychology from Boston University.  He became licensed as a clinical psychologist in 1983 and then met Syd Banks who he then learned directly from for the next 23 years resulting in a  Certificate of Competency from Mr. Banks authorizing him to teach the Three Principles. it is hugely important to A Little Peace of Mind that our program honours the work and insights of Syd, and Dicken has been invited onto the Faculty to help keep us true to that intention.

Dicken has been married for 52 years and loves teaching people about what it takes to create healthy, thriving relationships. He has two adult children and plans his day around when he can be with his four grandchildren.  He enjoys photography, hiking, canoeing,  traveling, and his cockapoo. 

This is not officially part of his bio but he is also, in Nicola’s words,. love in form.

how do I apply?

Your investment in the Little Peace of Mind Practitioner Program is £7,500.

A non-returnable deposit of £1,500 is required to reserve your spot if you are offered a place, then the remaining payments are spread over the first four months of the program.

Here’s the Little Peace of Mind Practitioner application process.


The Guardians are all Certified Little Peace of Mind Practitioners who have themselves all had their lives changed by the Three Principles Understanding.

They have all completed the Little Peace of Mind Practitioner Program and are working with clients so they know what it feels like to embark on such an epic adventure – the doubts – the jubilation – the mistakes you’re bound to make on the way – the stories of client success.

They are there to support you every step of the way. They are your ‘person’ for the next 12 months.

Laura White Renee Zulich Bron Warner Ruth Harris Susana Vilmer

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.

You need to be someone whose life has been touched and changed as a result of learning the Three Principles, and experienced a profound change as a 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 12 months of fun and challenge and be fully committed to every element of the training 🙂

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.

You’ll need clear your diary completely for the retreats (no squeezing in work meetings between sessions!). The four 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!

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.

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.

No problem, email me at [email protected].

Get in touch with us at [email protected] and we’ll explain your options 🙂
