Mentor Training

The next Mentor Training will be January 8-March 12, 2019  hosted Online

Healing Touch Program has created the new Healing Touch Program Mentor Training Course and Mentor Support Portal to help you have a successful mentorship practice.

By participating in Healing Touch Mentor Training you will have the tools and knowledge to become a successful Mentor. We will be giving you information on how to launch a successful mentorship practice one that can stand alone or be integrated with your current practice or teaching. We will be teaching you how to motivate, encourage, advise, coach, listen, tutor, and guide your Mentees to successful completion of their HTCP certification. By learning to be an effective mentor, you will be able to help your Mentee to harness their talents and to awaken their ambition, passion, and their drive to succeed.

Overview of the Mentor Training Course:

HT Mentor training is a 10 week course that is a combination of both online training and live coaching calls. We planned the course so that students could register at any time and get access to the video lectures and the Mentor training workbooks. This was important, because taking the Mentor Training will become a requirement in January 2016 in order to be a mentor in the Healing Touch Program. The MT Course is one step in mentorship, along with successfully getting 3 HTP's through Certification while working with your Supervising QM. 
The course has 9 mentor video lectures that run approximately 40 minutes - to an hour in length - a few are a little over an hour. The videos are available in the Mentor Support Portal to registered students and repeat students. These lectures correspond with the Mentor Training workbook that is located in the Mentor Training support material area. 
With the course you will also have 10 weekly Mentor Coaching calls that go along with the weekly lectures. In these live coaching calls the Instructors will discuss the mentor training lectures and workbook details, review homework, and discuss actual Mentor/Mentee issues. These calls will be offered as a live series twice this year. If you miss the live calls they will be recorded and posted in the portal. To get the most out of the course it is best to be enrolled in the course when the calls are live verses the recorded calls so you can ask your particular questions. 

Once you have taken the Mentor Training Course you are registered for life! You will have full access to any updates and may repeat the course at any time. In addition, if you are already a Qualified Mentor, you are granted access to the course at no charge. If you repeat the course you will not receive CE credit and you will not have your homework assignments reviewed.

Here is what students have said about the Mentor Training course…

Dr Monica Nebauer, HTCP/I

My hesitation about taking the Mentor Training Course was the amount of time it would take in addition to a busy life and full time work.

While I have always known about the qualities of the HT program, I gained a much better awareness of the excellent educational program we offer and how to help mentees meet the standards required for certification. So I gained awareness and also confidence in my ability to help mentees.

After taking this course, I was much more confident as an Instructor and Mentor. I had a much better understanding of how to guide people towards the final objectives of Level 5 and Certification.

For students considering taking this course, I suggest to, take the step and do the program as the time and effort you take will be well worthwhile in terms of improving your knowledge and awareness of the program and a deepening of your awareness of how best to practice and teach HT and be a confident mentor to others.

The Mentor Program was a wonderful experience overall, as it is so well-constructed and implemented using contemporary educational principles. The theory sessions were beautifully planned and presented by very knowledgeable people with a depth of knowledge and experience. I am so grateful I was able to do the course and benefit so much from its pearls of wisdom. Thank you!


Terri Terhaar, HTCP

Before I took the Mentor Training Program, I questioned “As a Mentor would I be able to help my Mentees thru the process?”

After taking the Mentor Trading course, I felt I could empower my Mentees because I didn't feel alone in the process. Dawn and Franny  [my Instructors] were always available.

The instructor make the program. They were great examples of what a Mentor should be. Thank you. I loved the program and feel very capable in helping my Mentees because of this [course].


Margaret G Fowles, HTCP, QM

I had already successfully mentored several people, so I wasn't sure it was necessary for me to take the course.  But after I went through the course, I felt more self assured about mentoring and achieved a new level of clarity about what is required of the mentor and the menthe.

I felt prouder and more self assured about the mentoring I had already done.

This training will spill over into your healing practice and make you more self-assured in working with clients because it will clarify even more what you have learned through all the levels and how significant it is.


Brenda Fister, HTCP

“If you have any interest in being a mentor this is a must!”

My biggest hesitation to taking the Mentor Training Course was the expense!  But by taking the course found that I was more confident and ready to take on mentees.  I felt organized and informed about the expectations of being a mentor.

The main result for me was to become a mentor.  I had not been mentoring when I took the course so I was looking for guidelines and resources so that I could be the best mentor that I could be and the training program gave me that.

I would say if you have any interest in being a mentor this is a must!  There is a lot to being a mentor, including understanding of how individuals learn, the resources are extremely valuable on the mentor portal and the networking and valuable insights from others taking the training are helpful as well.

I continue to go back to my notes as well as the notebooks to be sure that I understand all the homework requirements so that I can share with my mentees accurate information.  This course was well worth the expense!


Jane Hightower, HTCP/I

I had been a teacher and mentor since 1992, was a Qualified Mentor, and thought the Mentor Training Program had little to give me. Wow, was I mistaken!

I learned how important it is to keep up with current changes. I also discovered of a couple of changes I had missed and was encouraged by all I was doing right as a mentor.

Even with my experience, I found it incredibly supportive.


Victoria F. Stewart, HTCP/I Energy Therapy Specialists

I have been a Mentor since 2002.  The Mentor Training was created after I had gotten more than 3 people certified.

 It was valuable for all Mentors to take this training program. It will make you a better practitioner in your community and there is nothing better than to help another apprentice become the best  practitioner they can be.


Jean S Pruett, HTCP/I, Bridgepath, Inc.

“It [mentoring] is some of the most fulfilling work I have ever done.”

After taking the Mentor Training Course, I was definitely more confident in my body of knowledge about mentoring someone through the program all the way to certification and affirmed in my organizational skills that have served me well in managing a fairly large group of mentees.  Paying attention to detail became even more important to me as well as staying informed and up-to-date on any changes that were occurring through the Mentorship Portal.  Participating in the quarterly mentoring calls with a Lead Mentor has also increased my confidence and comfort level in mentoring those who cross my path.

One of the best results of going through the Mentor Training program was adding to my knowledge and skill level in managing challenging mentees who seem to have difficulty in setting appropriate boundaries personally and professionally.

The training helped me recognize a need to end a mentoring relationship on two occasions and manage it from a heart-centered place that allowed one of these mentees to make clear and definite changes in her attitude, behavior, and openness to growth that allowed her to eventually re-connect with me and complete her HTP journey.  She is now an HTCP and an amazing healer.  She literally glows and has already helped many people experience astounding healing in their life.

 Don't miss the opportunity to learn how to use your gifts in service to others as they learn and grow through the amazing work of HT.  Mentoring is a way to expand your influence and increase the visibility of this much-needed work in our world.

The support and encouragement one experiences going through the Mentor Training program makes Janet's dream of spreading HT around the world an even greater possibility.  It is some of the most fulfilling work I have ever done.
