Empathetic , Honest , Strokewise

Self description

Male , 53

I won the Stroke Lottery on 26th March 2012 - all the numbers came up..!!
I am now living a post-strike life where I try to take the positives forward with me, consequently I been down roads I would never have considered travelling pre-strike.. Most significant has been understanding the emotional effects of my Stroke, on myself and those who care about and for me..

Life experiences


I am a Stroke Survivor with significant positive experience to share with other sufferers and those around them..

Emotional Impact of Stroke..

This is woefully neglected at the early stages of post strike care..

Supporting Families, Carers and Friends..

All these people have emotions too, that are deeply effected by seeing someone they love suffering from the immediate and after effects of Stroke..

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I can use my own experiences to help others who are battling the physical and emotional effects of Stroke.. This may be as simple as signposting people to support they were not aware of.. The emotional effect of Stroke on all parties is woefully neglected as we all concentrate on the very visible physical effects of Stroke.. Emotions become buried by all parties as we put on our brave faces and pander to our in-built desire not to be a burden to anyone..

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!'
