Self description

Male , 64

People have said about me is "what you see is what you get" hence the profile name wysiwyg. I was born at an early age with more hair than I have now and with not a care in the world..:) But over the last 54 years that has changed. I left school and joined the RAF as a musician from there I went to uni and became a careers officer. Married had 5 great boys, seperated after 14 years, but still great friends with the wife. For the past 28 years I have always worked in a caring profession

Life experiences


I am a trained and experienced careers advisor and now work with young people with special needs as a careers advisor and counsellor.

Mental Health/Self Esteem/Attempted Suicide/Self Harm

I suffered from depression after my 15yo son took his own life. Since then I have been involved in helping young people with various issues.


Though I was married and had 5 great sons, i was also gay, but due to my faith I felt it was wrong. Now I believe that God accepts me as I am, sexuality and all. My sexuality is part of me but does not define me.

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!'
