Anything that concerns you about your degree or your career development. Your relationship with your mentor is confidential - if they think that they need help in helping you, then they will ask your permission before they talk about your issues to someone else. Your mentor should encourage, challenge, nurture and teach in response to your needs. However, do bear in mind that your mentor is not a therapist. We will expect you both to set parameters at the start of your relationship about what are, and what are not, suitable topics for discussion..
