Self description

Female , 54

I am an adopter and a birthmum, I used to be a letterbox administrator for a local authority post adoption support dept. I would be delighted to offer any advice prior to and after adoption. I am currently studying to be a counsellor. My dad died when I was eight which was a massive blow for myself and my family. My love of music got me through I think. I live with my partner and my 19 year old son and my 7 year old son. I am a homestart volunteer. I love chatting to people and I am a mine of useless information! :) I play keyboards, like gardening, making stuff and learning!

Life experiences


I've worked in Post Adoption Support and childrens services as a letterbox coordinator. I am an adoptive parent. If you are thinking of adopting or are wondering about adopted relatives please contact me.

Loss and Debt

I have experience of bereavements, unexplained infertility, miscarriage, divorce, debt, have been around the block a few times in other words!

Young carers

I've been a young carer who supported a parent suffering from depression and bereavement and two younger siblings. This is a mighty burden for any child to bear and it is a deeply formative experience, I am happy to talk to any carers out there.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

Sometimes it's hard to see the wood for the trees, sometimes life makes us feel we are completely alone, sometimes it is easier to say how we feel by writing it down. Sometimes others see our strengths more clearly than we can ourselves.

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!'
