Mindfulness in Mind – Practitioner Training Programme (PTP)
In-Person & Online
“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few” – Shunryu Suzuki
Mindfulness is recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) as an effective treatment for depression and has been clinically evidenced to significantly reduce symptoms of anxiety and stress. Mindfulness is a treatment option that we at Mindfulness in Mind believe should be made available to anyone who experiences mental health issues.
Mindfulness in Mind, supported by national charity Mind, is the banner under which Mind in Salford and Mind in Hackney have delivered evidence-based 8 week mindfulness courses; MBSR Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, MBCT Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and MSC Mindful Self-compassion, to the public since 2010.
Mindfulness in Mind run the Practitioner Training Programme (PTP), a recognised 12 month pathway for people who want to train and qualify as mindfulness teachers. We train fellow Mind colleagues, counsellors, therapists, mental health practitioners, physicians and educators from all over the UK to deliver 8 week mindfulness courses. We also encourage applications from experienced mindfulness practitioners who are looking to change their career and want to have a recognised qualification to help them to establish their own mindfulness enterprise.
The pathway provides the foundation for seeking registration with the British Association of Mindfulness Based Approaches (BAMBA) and teachers in training will be supported to attain the levels of competency outlined in the Good Practice Guidelines (GPGs).
Course Details & Fees
The key components of the training programme are outlined in the prospectus (see below). The next course starts in October 2021. We will be delivering a hybrid-model; teaching in-person in our training room in Salford whilst including practitioners who will be attending via zoom. We have a fully fitted out training room with a large TV monitor so everyone will be able to engage at the same time.
Fees cover the whole of the 12 month pathway, there are no hidden costs. The fee covers all teaching, resources and regular individual supervision throughout the programme:
- Individual fee is £2,300. Payment plans by instalment are available to help spread the cost.
- Organisation fee is £2,800
We are pleased to announce that we have ONE bursary place left for a BAME applicant who lives/ works in Greater Manchester. The bursary will cover the full cost of the training and would be awarded based on how an applicant meets the criteria as set out in the application form PLUS the following :
- You are a BAME applicant and live/ work in Greater Manchester.
- Financial considerations- the cost of paying for the training would prohibit you from applying or would leave you in financial hardship
- A daily practice of mindfulness / meditation that has been developed over at least 12 months and which has had clear benefits for yourself and others
- A commitment to, and a clear pathway, to teaching mindfulness once the training has been completed. We are keen to fund someone who has the vision, capacity and ability to take the learning forward. We can help you carve out this pathway however the passion must come from you and we need to see your vision and that you have clearly thought about how to realise it.
