Mentoring now also available online

by / Saturday, 28 February 2015 / Published in Feldenkrais Practitioners

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

After much thought and deliberation, I’ve decided to offer online mentoring for Feldenkrais Practitioners. I’ve served as a mentor to students, new and experienced practitioners, and have been able to help them find and foster their own potential and strengths. More recently, I’ve been doing the same work over the internet via video calls and e-mail contact. Because I wasn’t sure if I could work as effectively online as I could in person, I’ve taken my time to test this out and can now say that I’m very satisfied with the results.

  • Working online has certain advantages over live sessions:
  • Online takes less time because you can stay in the comfort of your own home or practice.
  • I’m available to share my experience and knowledge, regardless of location.
  • We can schedule times that work for both of us.
  • It’s easier to be more consistent, which is one of the most important aspects for effective mentoring.
  • By developing and growing a relationship over time, our work together will become more meaningful, efficient and rewarding.

Because you may not be sure how this could help you, I’m offering a free, no strings attached 30 minute consultation. Just send me an e-mail and we’ll set up an appointment. I will help you with any questions you might have and you can test this out to find out how it could be helpful for you.

I also work in German.

  1. Hi John,

    I am no longer a client of Allison’s but noticed your offering and would like to know more. I really felt Allison was a genius but the delivery of the product tripped me up. I wonder if you could offer a similar high quality material as Allison. Additionally, I am not a Feldenkrais practitioner but a Healing Touch apprentice.

    Please let me know what you think,

    John Foster

      Hello John, and thanks for your interest. What I’m offering differs from what Allison’s offering in that I’m working with the actual teaching skills and tools of the Feldenkrais Method, for practitoners. She’s working with communication and practice building skills. There is some overlap because there’s not a clear line between practitoner skills and practice building skills. However, I see that what we’re offering to be clearly separate and both very useful. You can be a brilliant practitioner and still have a small practice because you don’t yet have the skills to market what you do.

      More recently, I have begun working with practitioners outside the FM community because I have been asked to teach some of what I’m doing. In this case, I’m teaching: how to communicate ideas of learning versus correcting, engaging your students/clients in a way that they contribute to their own learning, and how what we, as somatic practitioners do, effects the whole person and their life. Of course the subject matter would be determined by your interests and needs. If that could be helpful to you then yes, I can help. If you’re looking for the practice building skills, that’s not my specialty. If you’re interested in finding out more, we can set up a free consultation call, no strings attached.

      All the best, John Tarr
