Self description

Male , 65

Im Marrried with 2 children and 2 and a bit grand kids. I work in government on the commercial side and have experienced the pain of living with someone with Alzheimers for 10 years. I have also worked with mental health groups

Life experiences


I work with companies of all sizes from one man bands to international companiesI feel I have some knowledge about business


I have been a carer of someone with this illness and I understand the fears, frustration and guilt that carers can experience


I have brought up two children with my wife. My son is in the forces and I am fully aware of how difficult that can be for their loved ones especially when they are on active service

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

My motivation is that I want to help other people as I was helped. This is a good means of helping as its very anominity makes it easier for people to talk. I dont have all the answers but I can listen and thus offer the chance for the person with the problem to bring everything to the open and for them to find their own answers. I feel it is important that the individual reaches their own conclusions because only they can truely know the position they are in. I will seek to open up areas for considerattion rather than give answers unless the answer is an unassailable fact.

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!'
