Our mentors not only guide us regarding our work and our plans for this journey but also govern and help us uphold our service offerings to the highest standards. The mentors support us with: 

– skill development to support clients
– supervision on work done with clients
– upholding ethical guidelines and principles of work

While we seek counsel of our mentors regarding our dilemmas and how best to support our client’s journeys, we take our own independent informed decisions.
