Self description

Male , 38

I'm a barrister in my mid-30's. Married. Passionate about my wife, my job and football. Can be cranky at times (can't we all?) but I'm generally easy going, decent company and fun to be around. My fashion sense is terrible - so I can't offer any advice on that front ...

Life experiences

Depression

Depression is so prevalent in society - particularly amongst my peers. Yet still the taboo persists. I want to use my experiences to assist others in similar situations. The biggest step is being brave enough to confront the situation - knowing you're not a pariah and that others have felt and do feel the same way is a massive help.

Self-worth

Closely tied in with the issues surrounding depression as set out above.

Career

After school, university and a post-graduate degree it still took me 5 more years to finally land the job I'd always wanted. Those 5 years were some of the hardest of my life. Fear, disillusionment, anger - all these issues were tied up with a sense of entitlement. I'd done the hard work, got the degrees yet still the job wasn't there. I can relate to people in all walks of life - whatever their career path and help them to understand that they are not the only ones to have faced such difficulties and advise and assist on how to move forward.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I've had a few struggles of my own getting this far but with the help, guidance and understanding of others I've been able to overcome obstacles such as debt, depression and low self-worth. Despite what seemed insurmountable problems at the time I've been able to work through myriad issues, change my circumstances and start to enjoy the life that I have. I've also become a better partner, brother and friend in the process and I want to help others to unlock their own potential and achieve the same sense of self-worth that they 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!'
