Life experiences

Careers advice

I have 12 years experience in this field, advising people on anything from getting back into work after a period of ill health, professional career development, CVs, interview coaching etc


I have experienced both marriage break-up and successful relationships, single parenting, and family issues.I have also counselled adult survivors of sexual abuse, people of all ages experiencing problems with family relationships, and young adults going through life challenges including drugs and alcohol, communicating with friends and family and becoming independent.


I have experienced and recovered from depression and anxiety, learning a lot about negative and unhelpful thinking along the way, and practical methods to tackle these.I have helped others, both as a careers adviser and counsellor, to explore these issues, find ways to gain self awareness, and move forward.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I believe people can help each other! I have learned so much in my life from the people I meet, and the challenges I've struggled with. I have organised and run a lot of groups where people help and advise each other- and often people are surprised to know that they are not alone in having a problem or experience. This in itself really helps, so I'm keen to support and use a network like this where people can share their experiences and learning.

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!'
