Mentoring for Registered Nutritionists

What is Mentoring?

Mentoring is a relationship between two people where the individual with more experience, knowledge, and connections is able to pass along what they have learned to a more junior individual within a certain field.

The aim of this blog

As someone who offers a lot of support to Nutrition Students and Graduates, I get asked all the time about how to get a mentor. Many graduates are keen for guidance about how to get started in their chosen career, how to move into a particular area or would just like someone to talk to about their own career. I thought it was time to create a list of who is able to offer mentoring to Nutrition Graduates so that I can answer this question more successfully.

Thank you very much to all of you who have kindly offered your help and are now listed in this blog. Your support is invaluable and greatly appreciated.

I will continuously update this list as offers come in and remove people from the list once they reach capacity of number of mentees.

How to use this list

If you are seeking a mentor, please look through this list to see if there is someone who matches your areas of interest and could be a suitable mentor for you. Then contact them via the email address or website given to discuss a possible mentoring arrangement. I will not be able to provide a matching service for those seeking a mentor.

Once someone has reached their limit with the number of mentees that they are able to take on, I will remove them from this list. If the person you were planning on contacting is no longer on this list, that means that they are now at full capacity with the number of people they can mentor.

Please note that some mentors may charge for offering a mentoring service. I have indicated who may charge in the table below.

Contacting a Mentor

When contacting a mentor via email, please introduce yourself by giving a bit of background about yourself and what it is you are wanting help and support with, whether it is answers to a few questions or a more long-term mentoring relationship. Please think about what you are hoping to gain from contacting the mentor before sending them a message.
