Self description

Female , 29

I am 21 years old and I come from a big family with two sisters, a half-sister and three half-brothers. I live away from home though visit regularly as my father is recovering from cancer and a stroke and my sister is recovering from M.E and is currently learning to walk again. I have just finished a bachaelors degree in psychology and am hoping to go on and study it at postgraduate level. It has been a long road to get here full of difficult times and a lot of hard work but i am very proud of my achievements.

Life experiences

Cancer / illness / stroke / ME

I have watched my father battle cancer and a stroke and seen him almost die in the process and I have watched my sister battle M.E. and lose the ability to walk.

Depression / suicide / self harm

I have battled depression myself and been lucky enough to overcome it. I have reached the depths of despair but have been able to pull myself out of it.

School /University

I have just completed a psychology degree and therefore am knowledgable about both the school and university process.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I would like to help vulnerable people in difficult situations, by providing a listening ear. Sometimes simply having someone to talk to who understands what you are going through or just wants to support you can make all the difference. Simply knowing that someone cares and wants to help can often provide people with a valuable life-line. The online-process removes the fear of talking face-to-face or over the phone that some people have and helps maintain anonymity allowing people to be truly honest about their feelings and enabling them to get the help they both need and deserve.

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!'
