Calling All Therapists, Coaches + Beginner Mindfulness Teachers

Are you ready to begin?

At the start, most mindfulness teachers share two things: a passion for their practice and a feeling of not knowing how to start.

For me, the main problem was my confidence: I read books, even did some online courses, but still, after all that, I didn't feel 'ready'.

  • I suffered from imposter syndrome (I'd never worked as a meditation teacher before, who's going to trust I can do it?)
  • I felt scared about teaching; although I'd done my fair share of practising, I'd never guided a meditation, let alone given a class
  • With so many options online, I felt uncertain about who to trust
  • I didn't have a structure to follow or how to start getting people to come to my classes
  • I didn't have the time in my diary to commit to a 7 day training programme (or longer!)

Using her unique approach, Dr Patrizia Collard has trained over 500 mindfulness teachers.

She's also sold millions of books on Mindfulness and has taught thousands of people to meditate over her 30 years of teaching.

She's used all of this knowledge to create a new approach to Training Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy Teachers utilising a mixture of online and live training.

Our Teacher Development programme is crafted to offer you a personal level of support throughout your journey to becoming a confident mindfulness teacher.

"Dr Patrizia Collard is an expert in her field. Her knowledge and understanding of Mindfulness makes her a leading teacher and mentor in this field. I am deeply grateful for the lessons I've gained from her."

Kate Baron

Mindfulness Coach

"Having finished the course, I am much more confident in my abilities in teaching Mindfulness and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. I loved working with Patrizia, Monty and Helen, who gave lots of support and guidance throughout. Their expertise and years of experience in the field was evident, and I appreciated the depth of knowledge and authenticity that underpinned the course. It was really apparent that they took a personal interest and cared deeply for each of the students on the course. The eight week on line course I had done previously felt very superficial and impersonal in comparison. Key was the level of commitment and care shown by Patrizia, Helen, and Monty throughout. Thank you all."

MBCT Teacher

Rose Grewal

"After the training, I felt very confident in my ability to teach Mindfulness and have built up a great online business around it, including leading 8 week MBCT group programs. The venue was also gorgeous; very peaceful and quiet, yet extremely welcoming.I would absolutely recommend this course - it's perfect for anyone who wants to become a professional mindfulness teacher or add Mindfulness to their list of skills."
