A little peace of mind

practitioner training

this work matters

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 who are struggling, with heaps of practical experience and in-depth personal support, then the Little Peace of Mind Practitioner Program has been designed just for you.

Not your typical ‘coach training program’,  the six-month Little Peace of Mind Practitioner Training Program is completely unique with its in-depth retreats, personal coaching and support and provided-for-you practice clients to help you build your confidence and experience.

100% online so you can join from wherever you are in the world.

And a maximum of 12 participants to provide an intimate experience and individualised support, tailor-made for you.

Now, more than ever, the world needs more people that can do this work and share this understanding.

This work matters.

The cornerstones of the program are three, three-day in-depth retreats, all held online and led by my colleague John El-Mokadem and myself. The first will kick off our six months together, and the second will take place after three months and the final retreat will wrap up the end of the program.

Each day will run from 10am to 4pm UK time and attendance at all three retreats is required in order to graduate.

1. The Foundations Intensive – 20, 21, 22 September 2021

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 Review – 22, 23, 24 November 2021

Here you’ll bring examples of client work that you’d like a fresh perspective on and we’ll help you deepen your work and the impact you have.

This will enable you to

=> Gain confidence in delivering your own coaching

=> See the impact of this way of working for yourself

=> Explore the practicalities of setting up your own coaching practice

3. Going Deeper – 14, 15, 16 February 2022

As you already know, this conversation goes waaaaay deeper than: “You know that’s just your thinking, right?”.

In our final retreat together that completes the training, we come together to explore how to continue our life-long journey into seeing the truth of the principles more and more deeply for ourselves – and thus being able to support our clients to do the same.

the training

the practical

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.

1:1 Coaching:

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 one of our experienced Practitioners, 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.

Facebook Supporter:

If you’d like to, you can also take on the role of Community Manager for the six 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.

a little about me...

I have been a coach for over 16 years, am a Master Transformative Coach, have hundreds (if not thousands!) of coaching hours under my belt, served as a member of faculty on Supercoach Academy, created an organisation that has helped over 100,000 people with anxiety and stress and published my book with Hay House.

I share that with you to let you know – I know what it’s like to start training as a coach in this understanding and I’ve personally seen the value of high-quality mentoring and practical experience in developing my work and impact. I have particularly enjoyed mentoring others through this same journey and I love to see students transform both personally and professionally as they embark on this journey.

With that in mind, there is also plenty of additional 1:1 support throughout the program – all with me personally.

Personal Coaching Calls: In these four calls, you’ll get together with me 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.

Mentoring Calls: You’ll also have five calls where, 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. These will be with myself or a senior coach on my team.

Please note: all 1:1 sessions with me will take place between the hours of 9am and 4pm UK time.

John El-Mokadem and I have worked together since 2014, creating podcasts, retreats and practitioner programs together. He is, quite frankly, one of the wisest teachers I have met and feel very grateful that he will be teaching alongside me on the Little Peace of Mind Practitioner Program retreats again this time around.

faqs

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 6 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 or The Floral Project 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 hello@alittlepeaceofmind.co.uk.
