All About You!

Get ready for a journey of pure bliss and indulgence as you are transported into the world of mindfulness and glorious meditation. You will experience the most wonderful relaxing sessions with our top mindfulness tutor, Lorraine Milliard who works from the heart bringing kindness and compassion to the forefront of all the early mindfulness sessions. Mindfulness plays a key part in the Amazing Minds programme because we (the team) are mindfulness professionals and advocates of this compassionate and healthy way of living life. This means we dedicate valuable time in learning about the different types of mindfulness we can use for our own wellbeing and mental health coupled with what we need to know to help children and young people that we will be helping and supporting in the future. 


Training is in real time, which means the sessions are delivered online, by a team of highly qualified experienced professional tutors working with small groups of learners to ensure the learning experiences are dynamic, inclusive, comprehensive and enjoyable. We guarantee there will be lots of student interactions and discussions during your online training sessions. You will enjoy a training experience that feels robust in content, structure and delivery. We will provide you with an online package, ready to go, six session Amazing Minds Coaches Guide so you are ready to start delivering once you have completed our training programme.


Get ready to enjoy 18 sessions of high-quality learning with our team of very dynamic, experienced, and super positive trainers. Our trainers are Amazing Minds Coaches and are professionals in their own fields of expertise, specialising in mindfulness, coaching, counselling, SEND, safeguarding, mental health, wellbeing and supervision programmes. 

Digital Training Guide

We have created a comprehensive Amazing Minds Coaching Guide that is easy to follow and captures a wealth of information and first-hand experiences of how you can achieve excellent results working with children and young people. We have included high quality video content, recommended reads, professionally recorded mindfulness meditations and easy to follow top tips on how the AM programme is delivered to ensure maximum success. The digital download is clear, concise and provides you with everything you need know to become an Amazing Minds Coach.

Length of the Course

Your initial training will be 18 online sessions (one per week every week) and you will complete this part of the training in approximately six months. The final part of the training is practical as you work with children and young people in educational settings and complete several case studies, this can be completed in just six weeks or you can take a few more weeks to complete. It really is down to you as it depends on how many young people you are able to work with at the same time.


The final part of your training is the delivery of the Amazing Minds programme, which is so cool and you will be supported throughout this part of the live learning component of the qualification. The young people that you will work with will be aged between 10 – 19 years old.

We want you to learn under the experienced supervision of our tutors and be guided through the initial experience of working with children and young people. This part of the training is really enjoyable and empowering, it is everything that you have been working towards, so we make sure you enjoy and experience with confidence, self-belief with all the tools that you need so you are ready to go forward and make a difference.

If you need a placement school for the final part of your training then we can help provide this for you, ensuring that you have all the necessary enhanced DBS checks and safeguarding training in place. Many adult learners already have connections and relationships with schools, so they are happy to organise their own placements as this works well for them and that is absolutely fine.


The Compact provides the Amazing Minds Coaches with a professional ethical framework that protects children and young people by ensuring all Amazing Minds Coaches are enhanced DBS checked, insured, received safeguarding training and continuing ongoing professional development. Coaches will be part of a collective membership that gives Amazing Minds Coaches access to high quality marketing and branding materials created by Amazing Minds. Amazing Minds Coaches will be listed on the official website and also mentioned on the Amazing Minds social media platforms.  A collaborative approach that really bring its members together to maintain quality, standards, and professionalism. 


“Having been a member of support staff for many years, I never thought I would work directly with students - the Amazing Minds programme has allowed me to do that. As an Amazing Minds Coach, it is so wonderful to see students building a new relationship with themselves - building on their confidence and resilience to manage difficulty. I have seen so many changes such as improvements in sleep, confidence, self-esteem, self-worth etc. Although all the mindset work is undertaken by the students, it makes you really proud to be part of their journey. Witnessing the moments when they are proud of themselves is a priceless reward! Would I recommend the AM training? Absolutely, one of the best things I've done.” Mary - Kent

"Doing the mindfulness training helped me to develop my own self-care practice and also positively impacted on my own self-awareness. The experiential learning was fun. I enjoyed learning from my peers in supervision and on the initial training. It was good being online so I could fit times easily around my work schedule, it also built my confidence using this program online. The comprehensive handbook was a useful reference point when I started working with my first few students. I would recommend this training as it can help young people learn to look after themselves and be a kinder person. The young person will benefit from being more focused and calmer. You will also benefit from watching how mindfulness really helps to support young people and as the Amazing Minds Coach, you also benefit from the different mindfulness practises as you support the young person. My golden gems delivering this course were hearing a young person say their family had noticed positive changes by session three! It was a magical moment working with one student when they shared their anthem song and I decided to adopt this as my own special anthem song! Finally, seeing how a student with neurodiversity was able to complete the six sessions was a real gift." Sonia – Kent

"The Amazing Minds training is well-designed and rich in content, combining an understanding of adolescents' and young adults' brain development with mental health and mindfulness. Taking part in the training has allowed me to experience first-hand the incredible benefits of the programme, while also thoroughly preparing me to work with young people. So far, the results I have achieved have been astounding and extremely rewarding. It has been such a joy to witness the growth journey of the young people, while also being an active participant in it. Each teenager I have worked with has made significant positive changes, moving in their desired direction in life. I highly recommend the Amazing Minds training to anyone wishing to make an impact on young people and to be changed by it themselves. Jo Price is a caring and passionate person who has supported me throughout the journey through her presence and positivity." Asia - London

“Becoming an Amazing Minds Coach has quite honestly changed my life. Completing the mindfulness course has given me tools to calm my own mind and thoughts, I have learned how to live more in the present moment and be more grateful. All this learning has enabled me, as a person, to live a happier balanced life. I now have a great daily mindfulness routine and so do my family. Undertaking the Amazing Minds course was enjoyable, informative, educational and ultimately inspirational. I always looked forward to the next session. Once I finished the course I couldn't wait to get started with the young people. Being an Amazing Minds Coach is one of the highlights of my job working in a school. Personally, the results I have had so far have been mind-blowing with every student massively improving their mindset goals. The Amazing Minds course is an absolute must, every child can benefit from learning how the brain works and how to practise mindfulness.” Charlotte – Kent

“The Amazing Minds training which I have just completed was excellent. It enabled me to develop my own self awareness, self care practice and taught me things I didn’t know about myself. The training showed me the incredible benefits for the young people and the positive impacts it will make in their lives. I am greatly looking forward to working with the students.” Mary - Kent

“Training for amazing minds has helped me to develop a new directive approach to working with young people. It has given me the tools needed to help them gain a better awareness of themselves and the influence they can have on their own well-being. I’m amazed by how much content has been included in this short course, I would highly recommend it to anyone curious about coaching young people.” Andrew - Kent

“Amazing Minds is amazing. It has reminded me of the importance of my own self-care and mindfulness practices, along with showing me the power of our own individual mindsets and how small things can have a big impact. Training to become an Amazing Minds coach is such an honour. Knowing that the skills I’ve learnt will help me to coach and guide students on their own journey’s. Whilst they’ll be doing the majority of the work I look forward to seeing the difference it will make to them and the positive impact it will have on their lives. The training was inspirational and informative and run by a passionate trainer who wants to help improve students mindsets. The sessions felt collaborative and it was good to engage and learn from the group I was training with too. There are so many benefits to the Amazing Minds program and I wish something like this had been around when I was in school because it really would have made a difference.” Charlotte - Kent

"I was excited at the opportunity to train as an Amazing Minds Coach after witnessing some of my colleagues undertake their training and subsequently working with young people. Their commitment and genuine sense of pride in their student's success has been really inspiring. The Amazing Minds training sessions are engaging and insightful. Participating in the Amazing Minds course has deepened my understanding of mindfulness and it's been a real privilege to engage and learn from the Amazing Minds Trainers alongside the other participants. Learning the Amazing Minds techniques and how to deliver the sessions, to be able to better equip our young people in understanding their own mindset, and how to positively nurture their own wellbeing has been fantastic. The Amazing Minds training sessions work in tandem with a thorough Amazing Minds Guide that will be invaluable as I begin my journey as an Amazing Minds Coach. On a personal level, committing to the training has totally reignited my enthusiasm to engage in consistent mindfulness practice, prioritizing the time to value, understand and protect my own mental health." Claire – Kent

"It is a good and useful course, even if you might not need it at the time (that you do it), as it
gives you the opportunity to have something to help you. It has helped me to be calmer,
more rational, and more aware of what I am doing and how I am feeling."
