Self description

Male , 63

I spent 27 years in the Police Service, CID, ending up as a Sergeant. I lost my leg in a RTA on my way to work one day. I ensured that I obtained the very best outcome through the Civil Courts and the many battles with the system. I know how to ensure the victim and their family can survive a catastrophic accident. One needs information as soon as one can possibly can get it. These accidents impact on every bit of your and your family's lives. Please get in contact.

Areas affected: Home, Job, Benefits, Equipment, Social services, Holidays and Travel, Solicitors and Experts. You have no idea until it happens to you.

Life experiences

Accident Victim

You have suffered an accident and don't know where to start getting infomation about your new lifestyle. From the small and inconsequential accident to the medium and then to the serious accident you need a Mentor, someone that has been through it before. That's me. Done that been there and survived. Your path is unclear you need someone to cut through the fog and get some clarity into your life again. I know how to do that. I know what the important points to head for. all the information is out there and some of it is free but have you the timeand energy to find it? No? Then get in touch.

Bullying and Harassment at Work

What a minefield this is. My wife has been bullied and harassed and Discriminated at work. My background has been very benificial to assisting her and many other people I have been in contact with through a forum for Bullying in the workplace. Admittedly I generally give my opinion in how to fight the system through Tribunals and Courts and bring the fight to the Bully. I hate discrimination in all its forms and assist people in their fights. Again you need the information to fight I can't do the fight for you. Remember information is power.

Catastrophic Injury

At a loss with how to reintegrate into society? Think your life is at an end because of illness or injury. Think again, think positive. You may not be able to do EXACTLY the things you did previously but you will be able to do some. It is all about rehabilitating your mind and you body to the new reality. Remember you are not alone or if you think you are then you need to start to rethink your life.

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!'
