How it works

Sign Up

The first step after reading through the following information will be to sign up.

Confirmation Email

Once you have signed up for an online circle, you will receive a confirmation email.

Follow the signs

Outside of the venue where the circle is hosted, there will be a signboard and a Mentell member waiting to greet you.

Sign in and take a seat

Once inside, you can add your name to the register and let the facilitator know what you would like to drink. Refreshments including tea and coffee provided.

Opening the circle

When everyone is sat down and ready, the lead facilitator will open the circle and cover basic house keeping, the 7 principles and suggestions on how you can make the most out of the circle.


The ball will be passed as each person has their turn to speak, and the rest listen. Please note that you are under no obligation to speak if you don’t want to.

Half time break

At 8pm, there will be a short 10 minute break where you can go and get a drink or have some conversation before the circle resumes.


At 9pm, the facilitator will offer all members the last opportunity to share, followed by a few simple reminders before closing the circle.
