This article suggests that simple imagery and visualization techniques can be used with the mentoring relationship. After identifying the challenge that mentors need strategies to promote mentee development, the article presents a case for using visualization and shows how this strategy has been used in other contexts. Visualization and imagery is then applied to pre‐service teachers. The article concludes by exploring the potential for the use of visualization by mentors arguing that visualisation could help bring about self‐actualization.
