Self description

Male , 53

I'm 51 years old and married with two boys aged 21 and 14.

I have spent the last 35 years working in Youth ministry in my church, organising activities, teaching and running workshops for young people. For the last four years I have also served on the national Youth leadership team of my church.

When I'm not working as an area manager in a catering company providing school meals in South East London, or getting involved in some sort of youth activity, I enjoy running and going to the gym.

Life experiences

Sex and Relationships

Much of the work I've done mentoring young men has been in this particular area. Over the years it's been a topic that has perpetually come up and which always needs addressing as the context shifts with the generations.

Personal Presentation and Life skills

As someone who is responsible for employing and recruiting I recognise the importance of good personal presentation when presenting oneself for interview. I have a lot of experience in this area and I'm always willing to share my knowledge. I also have a strong conviction that young need to learn basic skills such as cooking, cleaning, etc so they can support partners and a home when the time comes to settle into a relationship.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I could have really used a mentor when I was growing up. It was a struggle not having someone to bounce ideas off or share anxieties and fears with. As a result of this I have always made myself available to the young men around me so they had a safe place to go if they needed support, advice or just a listening ear. I recognise the difference a mentor makes in the life of a young man, even when they have other positive role models around. I've had many experiences keep the course of my life which I believe have put me in a good place to support young men as they face life's challenges. I've also had the privilege to positively impact young men around me and want to do more with what I've been blessed to receive.

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!'
