Premium Mentorship

Cognition & Co takes great pleasure in announcing our latest mentorship offering; Cognition & Consultation: Premium Mentorship.

Although we already offer a free yearly Masters Mentorship Network, a number of students have reached out looking for a more personalized and career specific form of mentorship. In order to provide such a detailed platform, we have teamed up with a number of HPCSA registered professionals that have the capacity to take on a limited number of students. These students will receive individual attention focusing on various aspects of their career path in the form of one-on-one sessions, structured to maximize learning and growth opportunities.

While Cognition & Co have created structured packages for each of the career consultants, these packages are adaptable in order to facilitate each students needs. The packages include individual consulting sessions with psychological experts, as well as a number of added benefits, as seen below.

All sessions can be held online over Zoom but if you live in the same city as a Mentorship Consultant, they are open to meeting in person (following COVID protocols). Session dates are not fixed and will be discussed with the Mentorship Consultant upon introduction to them. If you are interested in getting a mentor, fill out the contact form below and we will get back to you.

Individual sessions can be structured in any way the student would like. The typical structure includes up to 4 aspects of the following list, but this may also be adapted to suit the student; personal growth, autobiography reflection, personal reflection and development, debriefing, application preparation, interview preparation, career guidance, masters preparation, internship preparation, community service preparation, etc.
