Mentoring at the NNA
The NNA mentoring scheme is running successfully, with monthly Zoom calls with Cora Weekes.
The monthly sessions, which will start each January, are primarily for recent graduates and students in their final year of a nutritional therapy diploma to help set up in practice, build up confidence, hone their clinical skills and address any subjects or questions that may come up. We are looking to support and encourage each other, while addressing the following:
- Setting up in practice – legalities and priorities
· Client interaction
· Functional testing
· Supplements in practice
· Jobs for nutritional therapists (or case studies)
· Consultation formats, questionnaires, timings
· Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database – how to use (or case studies/guest speaker)
· Digital Marketing
· Functional testing in practice (examples) or case studies
The mentoring costs £75 for the whole package of 10 sessions and you must be an NNA member to join.
If mentoring is something you think you’d find useful, please get in touch here.
Recent testimonial from a member of the most recent mentoring group:- I have found the mentoring sessions most helpful, particularly to be able to hear first-hand experience of setting up practice. I found all the laboratory testing discussions excellent particularly where they were mapped to the case studies. Thank you for all your valuable insight.
We are awarding 1 CPD point per session.
