Mellow training benefits anyone working with children, families or people in general.
Completion of group-focused training grants certified practitioner status, meaning that once trained practitioners can deliver parental groups to help spread the Mellow ethos and ultimately help support themselves and others.
Practitioners also gain access to manuals, free Reflective Consultation, ongoing evaluation support (incl. bespoke end of group evaluation reports), free Accreditation & access to the practitioner section of our website for further materials and resources.
Mellow training is composed of various programmes, dependant on the supporting age range/profile:
Going Mellow (0-5yrs): our core training split into therapeutic personal group programmes
Mellow Ability (4-7yrs): for parents and their children with additional needs
Mellow Ready (14-18yrs): a group programme specifically created for teens to support their mental health & wellbeing
Mellow Bumps & Dads to be (antenatal): helping parents understand and connect with their baby before birth
Mellow Futures (antenatal-toddler): a programme for both Mums and Dads with learning difficulties/disabilities
Mellow Conversations (any age/profile): focuses on practical techniques to achieve a strength-based approach & solution-led conversation
