Mentoring sessions give you a place to talk about your business, get help and to connect with someone who cares about your welfare. It is easy to feel isolated or alone as a therapist and mentoring helps by giving you support and guidance, as well as a place to ask questions or talk over anything regarding your work as a therapist. It is helps you grow and develop as a practitioner.
My view is that having a mentor is invaluable for any therapist wishing to be successful, realise his/her potential and to keep balanced, healthy & effective with clients.
If you are a new therapist working in the field without a support system within your own therapy discipline, mentoring can be incredibly helpful. I offer mentoring for Creative Kinesiology practitioners, kinesiologists from different schools, or practitioners of any therapeutic discipline.
What is a mentor?
A mentor is a more experienced person working in the same or similar field to you, with whom you can discuss difficulties or questions to do with your professional practice or business. Your mentor can give advice, coaching or help from the benefit of their own experience in private practice.
What happens in mentoring?
The personal sessions of mentoring I offer, tend to involve a mixture of discussion and Creative Kinesiology. I also give coaching about technique, if relevant, and ways of handing different situations within professional situations. Issues that are discussed and worked with can be anything arising from within your sessions as well as the bits round the edges, such as:
clients cancelling or not returning
anxiety about clients coming
difficulty with money and charging
being triggered by your client
not knowing how to handle a situation/client
Who is mentoring for?
I offer mentoring to Creative Kinesiologists, kinesiologists from other schools, holistic practitioners of any discipline such as Reiki, Shiatsu, speech therapy, massage. Healthcare practitioners or anyone managing other people and working in a caring capacity are also most welcome.
