Self description

Male , 28

I am a student social worker and have experience working with parents and young people, advocating on their behalf and creating links with services such as housing, employment and education. I have also worked with children in residential homes and with people who have learning and physical disabilities. I have worked on community projects in areas of Africa and have experienced some of their educational and charitable work first hand.

Life experiences

Depression, anxiety and emotional problems

As a social work student I have gained skills in 'counselling' and relevant theoretical knowledge which could help those at a low point or with specific areas of difficulty.

Higher education

As a student nearing the end of my course I feel able to advise those looking towards starting higher education or those experiencing particular problems.

Parenting advice

I have completed a placement at a children's centre which has allowed me to develop skills and knowledge in parenting and aspects related to it.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I would like to use some of my experience and knowledge to help others who may be on a similar path as me or who I may be able to assist through any aspect of my experience. I think that this is an ideal opportunity to use some of the 'social work' skills such as 'counselling' and 'sign posting' to aid members in their life journey.

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!'
