What is Life Mentoring?
Life mentoring is a supportive learning relationship between a trained mentor who shares knowledge, experience and wisdom with another person who is ready and willing to benefit from this exchange.
Requesting a Life Mentor does not mean something is wrong with you. It is a smart decision to help you:
- Find new motivation
- Overcome barriers in life
- Share life wisdom
- Get the support you need
A life mentoring relationship is about walking alongside another person, sharing life wisdom and celebrating success. It is not about telling someone what they should do, how they should do it, or requiring that certain things are achieved. You choose your own goals
We all have strengths and a contribution to make in the world but they can be hidden and locked away. Mentoring has been shown to be an effective way to unlock those things and to realise our full potential.
Goals – Clarifying a desired future to work towards
Reality – Identifying the current things to overcome
Options – Exploring possible new solutions
Way – Developing an achievable plan
Life mentoring is free of charge. The Mentor will agree with you how often it would be helpful to meet and where would be convenient. You can end the mentoring at any point but it will be reviewed when your goals have been achieved to decide the way forward.
