Self description

Male , 34

I am a lecturer on a Medical Imaging (radiography) course. I also practiced as a radiographer for nine years in both Australia and the UK.
I grew up in Australia and have been living in the UK since 2007. I have been married for three years and now have two children aged 3 months and 22 months.
I recently completed a Masters in Health Research whilst working as a radiographer whilst my wife was pregnant, a very challenging time in my life!

Life experiences

Student life, mature age study

Completed a Masters whilst working full time, currently a University lecturer

Living away from family

I have lived in the UK since 2007, whilst my immediate family lives in Australia

Having a young family

I currently have two young children and am relatively recently married so have lots of insight into managing the parental, financial and relationship challenges associated

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

Since starting work as a lecturer I have come to realise the strength of a kind word and some empathy from someone who has been in a similar position. I have been keen to start some volunteering work and I think mentoring on family life, living away from close family, student life (especially as a mature age student) or working as a health care professional would be a strength for me.

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!'
