Self description

Female , 27

Hi. I'm Faye, and I come from the Black Country in the UK (yup, I'm a yamyam). I graduated with a psychology degree this summer, and now working in marketing whilst trying to find my feet in the big grown up world.

Life experiences

Mental Health.

I have just graduated with a Bsc in Psychology - obtaining a 2.1. I have studied all types of depression, anxiety disorders, OCD, schizophrenia, substance abuse, gambling addiction, food addiction, which has given me a good basic knowledge base.
Like 1 in 4 people in the UK, I have suffered from depression. I was in a dark place for a while, I lost all my confidence and cut myself off from the world. With the strength and encouragement of my boyfriend I got over my issues. Life is short and every moment should be cherised - I want to remind people of that.

Relationships and Sex.

I have been in a long-term relationship with my boyfriend for nearly 6 years, and we have been through so much together. We got together when we were both 15, have been through school, college and university together, as well as my battle with depression, pregancy scares, and death of a family member. Although despite this, our relationship is strong and he is my rock.

Whilst at university I worked a clamydia screening assistant, promoting safe sex and good sexual health in my local area. This involved educating young people aged 14-24 about sex and STI's, and offering free clamydia tests to them.
As well as the health side of sex, I understand how important sex is in a relationship, and how many problems it can cause - (and solve!)

Teenage Pressures and University

I've been through it all, and know how 'the best years of your life' aren't as easy as they seem.

Bullying, peer pressure, problems with friendship groups, trouble with teachers, extra-curricular options, year 9 options, GCSE's, A-levels, UCAS forms, University, living in halls, graduation.

I have written a number of articles aiming to guide and advise students on university living. Take a look at my links page.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

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!'
