Amarinder Vadera is a qualified Mental Health trainer, coach and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) practitioner, who specialises in Mental Health Awareness training and empowering people in their recovery through one-to-one and group coaching.
Amarinder has been a corporate trainer since 2006. She also has personal practical experience of dealing with mental health issues which she incorporates into her training courses and one-to-one sessions. Following her graduation, she pursued her passion for teaching and training, becoming a Mental Health trainer with the leading charity ‘Mind in Harrow’ in 2008, accredited by Middlesex University.
Amarinder has completed her accreditation in Coaching and Mindfulness and is familiar with integrative tools such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Her experience also includes mindfulness-based stress reduction, psychotherapy and she has completed a counselling skills course with the family mediation service, Relate. These combined skills have stood her in good stead to not only raise awareness and challenge views, but also to empower those most vulnerable and aid them in their day-to-day recovery. Amarinder is also familiar with Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP) and Peer Support interventions, and has co-facilitated such workshops.
Amarinder has successfully designed and delivered training courses for local and national organisations including her local council, housing associations, Job Centre Plus, the Royal Orthopedic Hospital, churches, schools, colleges, charities and corporate banks. She has also worked with vulnerable adults and children with learning difficulties. Her experience has helped her to train volunteers at various charities. In addition, she regularly lectures student health visitors at London Southbank University and enjoys the opportunity of public speaking. She has been a keynote speaker on the subject of stigma and worked closely with the ‘Time to Change’ campaign aiming to normalize mental health difficulties.
