Mellow training benefits anyone working with children, families or people in general. Our training programmes primarily focus on children ages 0-5 years as this is the most pivotal time in shaping their futures, however, we do provide training to support other age ranges and scenarios.

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.

Training is split into sessions and participants will learn about the therapeutic personal groups (e.g. Mellow Mums and Mellow Dads) and the age-defined parenting workshops (e.g. Mellow Babies and Mellow Toddlers).

Mellow programmes can only be delivered by Mellow trained practitioners. This is because we believe that the delivery of a group, especially to very vulnerable parents or parents-to-be requires skills over and above the use of materials and worksheets however good these may be. For this reason, Mellow only releases manuals to trained practitioners.

Due to the nature of the programmes contained in Going Mellow, Mellow Ability & Mellow Futures, two trained practitioners are required for delivery as a minimum, however, for contingency, we recommend two trained practitioners for almost all our groups.
