To us, the term ‘Mentoring’ describes a relationship supporting someone through their personal recovery. It is about encouraging and PRACTICALLY supporting someone to make the most of themselves and this opportunity. Mentoring is about developing mutual trust and respect. It is a two-way relationship; you both get the chance to learn new things and help each other. The Mentor and the Mentee benefit from personal development. Mentors have lots of life experiences that mentees can learn from and vice versa. It is also a great way for mentees to develop and improve communication and goal planning skills and for mentors to learn and gain more skills.
