Self description

Male , 34

My background is in IT but I gave that up many years ago as I realised I am people person, not working with people just wasn't for me.
For the last 6 years I have worked in Higher Education and Student Support with experience in counselling (not qualified) students, mediating (qualified) conflicts and just generally being a go to person for students.

Life experiences

Higher Education

I have been working in HE for over 8 years in a number of roles - support and academic - and I have gained a wide array of experience that I would like to share

Conflict

I am a qualified mediator and deal with conflicts on a daily basis, whether it be roommates, partners, work colleagues etc... Conflict with those around can be daunting and it is very easy to either bury your head in the sand and hope it goes away or go for all out war and try and defeat your opposition. Mediation is about finding a solution, not always the one you want, not always perfect but one that works, one that is truly viable. So if you are in conflict with others I can hopefully help.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I enjoy helping people, it gives me a kick when I know I have made a difference for someone. I have also gained a lot of experience of a number of issues over the last few years and I would like to share it, but I'm also still learning and I see mentoring as another way of learning about people and myself.

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!'
