Who we are

Really is a TV channel for young women. We hand-pick the best reality-based programmes that offer an honest insight into other people's lives - shows that are feisty and straight-talking but still good natured (a bit like us really). From classic BBC series like Mary Queen Of Shops, US acquisitions such as The Hitched or Ditched to amazing one-off documentaries like Teen Dads, you can trust us to bring you something brilliant when everyone else is boring you to tears. You'll find us on Sky 248 and Virgin Media 267.

We think it's important to air programmes that tackle big issues head-on but want to help point you in the direction of support if you are experiencing any of the issues we cover. Really Helpful mentors are drawn from the community of horsesmouth as well as some of the people involved in bringing you Really programmes. They may be people who have been through the same thing or experts in the area- but all of them can help support you to make positive changes.

Our areas of expertise

Body issues

Body issues, including eating disorders and embarrassing illnesses are one of the areas covered by our programmes and we know this is an area that is difficult for many young women to talk about. Really Helpful mentors on horsesmouth allow you to talk anonymously about your experiences.


As our programmes show, being a parent, however old you are, is full of positive and negative moments. If you want to share the lows, or celebrate the highs, our Really Helpful mentors are here for you.

Love and relationships

Most people are touched by issues around love and relationships at some point in their life. Our programmes are designed to make you think but if you feel you need someone to talk to then browse our mentors below to find one who is right for you.

Why we're on horsesmouth

We recognise that we may not have the answers to all the issues we raise in our programmes but we'd like to help put you in touch with someone who does. We believe that connecting with other people is the all-important first step to dealing with your problems and realising you’re not alone. Trust us, there’s someone out there who has been there too.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
