What is an STJ Mentor?

A mentor is an experienced STJ user who is willing to help new users. This might be done in various ways. The mentor might be on the phone with the new user during their first STJ session to guide them in getting started and answer their questions. The mentor might just be available for a phone call, email, or text if the user has a question. The mentor might meet with the user on the phone after each STJ session to provide listening and support, and answer questions.

This arrangement might be just for the user's first STJ session, or it might be for the entire sequence of sessions in dealing with the first pattern the user works on. The exact arrangement can be worked out between the mentor and user.


We have not checked out the mentors listed to see if they do know enough about STJ to be helpful or to see if they will be helpful. So you must use your own judgment in deciding whether to work with any of them. Self-Therapy Journey LLC makes no representations as to the qualifications, competence, or experience of any mentor. If you connect with any of them, whether on the phone, in person, or on the internet, you are assuming all risks of any such interaction or communication.

I was able to illuminate and ease several patterns in the 3 months I explored the Pattern System. I am looking forward to helping others refine their Pattern System experience to the best of my abilities, with an encouraging approach.
