The mentoring process

Basic training

Complete your interactive training, either in-person or online, and complete your online study modules (both core and specialist) to gain a certificate of basic training, with which you can work freely. You can stop here if you want to.

Get a mentor

From the listings below, contact a potential mentor to discuss working together. Mentors are likely to ask you questions to work out whether you are a good match. Once you both agree to work together, you will need to pay your mentor £149 directly.

Be supported

You will be supported through a series of meetings and communication with your mentor to: get your work started, set goals and meet them, reflect on your practice and feedback from clients, and complete two community projects.

Contact a consultant mentor

All of the people below offer their services as mentors to CalmFamily consultants with basic certificates of training who feel that mentoring would help them to develop their skills in relation to their CalmFamily work. Mentor services are charged at a fixed rate of £149 paid directly to your mentor once you agree to work together. Mentors actually use a combination of techniques including mentoring, coaching, counselling and general CalmFamily approaches to support you in achieving your gaols and becoming confident in your work. When you contact a mentor, they will let you know if they have capacity to work with you at the time, and will then discuss with you the process and establish whether you will work well together.
