Why does The Resilient Mind use mentors to support clients ?2020-12-08T15:44:16+00:00

Why Mentorship

When The Resilient Mind training started we experimented with therapy, counselling, and mentorship, and found mentoring increased the effectiveness of clients’ outcomes. The fact that it generated trust, transparency, and a willingness to accept one’s vulnerabilities in both parties made it the ideal vehicle for attaining self-awareness and turning one’s weaknesses into strengths.

Mentoring has had a fascinating history. Before formal education came into its own, the preferred method of education in most of society was mentoring. The second half of the 20th century saw the emergence of modern forms of mentorship aimed at achieving career success. This was particularly so in the United States, where it gradually grew in popularity. Today, thanks to the deep levels of engagement that mentorship succeeds in fostering between mentor and client, it is gaining increasing acceptance as an effective way of imparting skills and knowledge.

OUR MENTORS

Our mentors are people who have developed awareness and skills toward managing their own psychological functions and are adept at transmitting the same to others. Endowed with rich experience, they seamlessly slip into an empathetic relationship with their clients. They know where the pain is, where the struggles are, and how, by degrees, we can overcome these to reach a state of fulfilment. By virtue of establishing a high Trust Quotient (TQ) with their clients, they develop a strong sense of security, understanding, and connectedness that makes the attainment of mental and relationship health goals that much easier.

HOW IT WORKS

During the 10-week training program, clients choose how they wish to communicate with their group mentor – whether by cell phone, Skype, or text. The mentoring focuses primarily on the following:

  • identifying clients’ two top stressors, setting goals to reduce their ill effects, and working toward this end by applying the 7 traits of resilience
  • Motivating the client and imparting self-confidence by providing encouragement, empathy, and compassion
  • Instilling in the client, on the basis of the trust established, a gentle sense of accountability toward the attainment of his/her goals
