The Inner Council Practitioner Program is an experiential process where practitioners will demonstrate their ongoing trust relationship with the Inner Child over the workshop and one 3 month session of mentoring. This is required in order to give the workshop and provide mentoring to their own participants. Following this process there is a final Practitioner Program which provides the soft skills required to comfortably manage the relationship with participants, so that practitioners feel enthusiastic and enjoy their work. Upon completion you will receive all documentation and certification so that you can run workshops, provide mentoring and bring the Inner Child into your practices.
Becoming a certified Inner Child Practitioner involves a dedication to a continued connection and building upon the trust relationship with you and your inner child. Checking in on a daily basis, journaling and recording interactions with your inner child is fundamental to the process of your own personal development and supportive connection to your inner child. With this in mind you have the personal tools to build towards delivering workshops and supporting practitioners longer-term through mentorship programs. As a practitioner you will receive certification and be listed on our website, we shall direct workshop requests to you to begin your client portfolio and discuss ways in which we can continue to support you in your role.

Is the Inner Child Practitioner Program for me?
Consult your heart, and inner child!
A profound part of the transformational process the Inner Child Workshop enables is a closer relationship to our intuition and inner landscape. If the workshop resonates with a part of you that can envisage this into a dedicated life practice you wish to pursue for yourself, and share with others, then absolutely this program is for you!
This program is great motivation to keep up the inner child practice, receive ongoing guidance and support during your journey, and provides clear opportunities for expanding your own practice into one you can share with others.
An opportunity to share empowerment and powerful integration tools with others may compliment your already growing self holistic toolkit. Whether you are an existing practitioner, or someone who would like to venture deeper on their personal path, this program is open and available to all who have completed the Inner Child workshop.
Prerequisites for The Inner Council Practitioner Program
What do I commit to when I join the program?
- Online and one-to-one study covering the following aspects
- Participant evaluation & assessment
- Holding space in the therapeutic environment
- Explaining empathy and metaphor when guiding others
- Managing trauma through trauma informed care
- Understanding regression & guided meditation
- Integrating others’ experiences into your own narrative
- Archetypal theory & interpretation
- Building a personal dedication to your own path and practice of what becoming an Inner Child Practitioner means for you
- Learning and becoming familiar with the Inner Child Workshop material in readiness for delivering workshops (This includes considerations of group and one-to-one workshop dynamics)
- Organising a workshop with a friend or family member in readiness for the practical part of the training program
How long can I expect the Program to last for?
The practitioner program is carried out over two one-to-one sessions (approx. 4 hours), however, the program is a smaller part of your ongoing commitment to Inner Child work and the clear practical demonstration of your own experiences throughout your personal journey that are shared with your practitioner.
Like with all holistic healing practices, there are no strict timelines with becoming a practitioner; the natural path can take anywhere between 3-6 months (following completion of the Inner Child workshop) for the connection to be nurtured and developed with your inner child and to feel what the mentorship program feels like as a participant. However, this will also depend on personal commitments, circumstances and integrating the practice into your life.
Part of your journey will be to trust; in yourself, intuition and your inner child to what is coming up and how comfortable and confident you are in sharing this practice, firstly with yourself and with others. Once a few instances of natural processing have occurred, an alignment will become apparent that you are ready to share with others, using your experience and intuition as your guide.
When the moment arrives, you will know!
The Inner Council provides psychoanalytical tools that allow participants to self-author their own healing development within a personal trust framework. Efficacy is based upon serious commitment towards the practices. Certification by the Inner Council is presented following recognition and articulation of authentic connections to these practices.
This certificate application is for all participants who have satisfied the requirements of The Inner Council: Inner Child Practitioners program with a recognised Inner Council practitioner. Upon completion of the program your practitioner will inform us of your entry and you are then free to register for the certification, allowing you to present the Inner Child workshop to those who come to you for your services. If you have any questions, please discuss them with your practitioner.
This certification also comes with the documents for delivering the workshop and understanding deeper about the aspects of developmental and depth psychology and a reading list that can help you to choose material that contributes towards your current skills and the ongoing requirements of providing support to others.

I realize from many cases I’ve dealt with in the past [as a psychologist], people find it difficult to talk about feelings, and therefore understand themselves, due to how language is organized. What I perceived from the experience of inner child work, is that it allows a deeper understanding of feelings, going beyond the need for rationality and confines of language. From this perspective, the workshop offers a great potential for working with clients in a therapy appropriate psychological setting.
