Consultant Training

Welcome to the Holding Space Consultant Training


People are suffering and in need of support during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We are called to action.

Beginning April 2020 ~ Amy Wright Glenn launched a new, intensive, online 12-hour training to qualified professionals who are interested in partnering with the Institute to offer one-on-one consultations during the global Covid-19 pandemic.

The 12-hour online training includes three two-hour pre-recorded modules, completion of assigned reading, 2 one-on-one sessions with a partner, and a one-on-one conversation with Amy in preparation for this work. Participants can pace themselves through the pre-recorded training ~ and be ready to offer one-on-one consultations through the Institute upon completion.

Now, more than ever, the work of this Institute is vital.

Now, more than ever, the work of holding space offers healing balm and guiding light.

*This training is open to those who are already working in mental health counseling, chaplaincy, and/or have at least 5 years of experience in birth and/or death doula work.

**Full or partial scholarships are available for BIPOC and LGBTQ applicants.

To apply:

*Write up a 2-page response detailing your experience in mental health counseling, chaplaincy, and/or birth/death doula work. In particular, highlight your strengths/challenges in supporting individuals through grief/loss, major life transitions, trauma, and crisis.

*Send application, letter of recommendation, and a $30 USD application fee to Amy.  Contact Amy for email/payment information. 

Individuals who successfully complete this training commit to working with the Institute’s payment structure for consultations and keep 80% of revenue earned.

Tuition is $450 USD.
