Become a Certified Wellbeing Practitioner

The Problem

Dealing with uncertainty and change is one of life's constants - and for many this is stressful.

Right now we are also witnessing an exponential increase in stress in the workplace, mental health issues and people struggling. In short, more people than ever are experiencing chronic mental stress.

This takes a huge toll on individual, organisational and societal health as well as organisational productivity and performance.

The Solution

Give people a true understanding of how mental stress gets created and they uncover an inner resilience they didn't know they had. Learning to recognise and live from their innate capacity for wisdom and wellbeing, people think better, feel better and perform better.

We can train you to help others eliminate stress at its source and create the conditions for people to access clarity and the resourcefulness to thrive in any situation.

Learning from Ian how to mentor and coach others in this understanding, has enabled me to access a deep level of transformative listening and discover for myself too a sense of satisfaction, enjoyment and freedom beyond anything I could ever have imagined … and I now know too, this wellbeing is available to anyone, regardless of their circumstances.

How can I become a certified Wellbeing Practitioner?

We offer a pathway through different trainings, each program has pre-requirements and our certifications require you to meet specific observable criteria. You can enter at any stage depending on your own level of experience and existing understanding - this is explored in an intake call.

“The Wisdom and Wellbeing courses have been a revelation for me in terms of both my personal and working life. I have now trained to become a Wisdom and Wellbeing Practitioner for my organisation. I love that it starts with understanding how I can access my own innate wellbeing so that I can then help others find theirs too.

Ian, Elizabeth and their team are truly inspirational to listen to plus accessible if you need another nudge in the right direction. I have also met some wonderful people on their courses. Most importantly I have found calmness in a busy world to enable me to be the best version of myself to support others.”

Learning to coach from a listening place of deep wisdom, began with my own journey which was a difficult beginning in children’s and foster homes. It wasn’t a quick fix, after 47 years of conditioning, I was attached to my past. I wore it as a badge of honour which in part kept me in the pain and hurt. My beliefs and identity had to fall away to a clearing of peace.

This now enables me to work with anyone to deeply listen and allow the space for well-being which is always always there.

Elizabeth and Ian’s complimenting different styles of delivering this wonderful program and their choice of mentors and webinar speakers have made it a life changing experience for which I will forever be grateful.
