What is Mentoring?

    Mentoring is where one person supports another with any issues that might be worrying them or causing them distress. The mentor often uses their own experiences and knowledge to assist the menteein making decisions and deal with the issues that they are facing. The Mentor never tells the Mentee what to do or how to do it but guides them to choose a course of action which feels right for them. The aim is to set goals.

    You can discuss anything that you choose to with your mentor and they will not force you to discuss anything that you do not feel comfortable with.

    They can help with information and support around your issues or your caring role. They could also help with self-esteem issues or lack of confidence. They will never make judgements about you or your actions. It can sometimes be easier to talk to a ‘non-judgemental outsider’ rather than a ‘professional’ or a member of the family.

    Mentors can support you proactively with whatever issues you wish although they are not there to do everything for you. They could help you cope with certain situations such as when you are feeling stressed. They will listen carefully and help you make decisions
    on how to cope with or perhaps alleviate the problem.

    Mentora Conwy will speak to you about your preferences and will offer mentoring support to suit your own personal needs. 
    This mentoring includes, telephone, e-mentoring (email or social media), face to face mentoring, and group mentoring. 
    Group mentoring will involve attending monthly meetings in your area with other mentees and will follow a programme based on the 'Five Ways to Wellbeing'.  This programme focuses on aspects of our lives which keep us well both physically and emotionally and looks to ways to enhance or improve both aspects.  Check our NEWS PAGE on the main menu at the top of the screen for the dates and locations for group mentoring in your area.
