One to One Online Mentoring
What is a Mentor?
A mentor is a person who can support, advise, guide you, & importantly offer a friendly ear to just listen to you & your concerns without passing judgement.
They typically take the time to get to know you and the challenges you’re facing, then use their understanding and personal experience to help you improve.
Mentors have the potential to become life long friends, or the relationship may only last until you’ve achieved a goal, there’s no ‘one size fits all’.
Many celebrities have publicly discussed the impact their mentors had on their success, including Christian Dior, Richard Branson, and Oprah Winfrey
Mentors show empathy and respect whilst sharing both hope and optimism which can have a profound positive effect on mentees (you). Mentors are living examples of how individuals can not only improve, but also recover from issues they may be struggling with that affect their mental health, or they can provide strategies for functioning well within society.
The sense of accomplishment for a Mentor is huge when helping someone to achieve their goals, which is enhanced when one knows first-hand just how difficult your journey can be.
People struggling in general, or those with mental health issues can often feel isolated and powerless and fear for their future. A mentor can help by being a friendly person to go to for advice about dealing with the problems impacting you & your mental health from the perspective of having a similar experience.
This type of support helps people to move forward and build on their achievements, giving them the confidence to set new goals to work towards.
A peer mentor is someone who can:
- give support and advice from the perspective of having experienced similar issues
- tell you about their experience and give ideas about how to deal with specific situations
- help you identify (signpost) and contact other organisations that can help you
The role of a Peer Mentor is NOT as a therapist or a doctor, so cannot give you medical advice or tell you what you should do. They will actively listen to you and help you to engage with the right services (signpost).
