Self description

Male , 46

I'm a fortysomething father of two, with all the boxes ticked. Beautiful wife, great career, degrees, fit, healthy ... but not without all the bumps and grazes along the way. By now I've pretty much been through the lot .. and i'm still breathing.

Life experiences


... has been a consistent factor in my life, and I have developed effective strategies for controlling and harnessing the emotions it provokes.


It takes one who has experienced bullying to understand another in the same pain. Been there. Felt that. There is a way, and it is never without hope.


i have spent 20 years working up from being the geek in the corner to being the come-to-guy the directors rely on. I have a firm belief that if you apply the right strategies consistently and without ego, you can succeed in any organisation, idiots notwithstanding.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

in the main because I have been helped along by a series of brilliant people, some of whom had no idea how helpful they were, and I need to pass on what I've learned because my son is too small to understand right now. Life hurts and disappoints in a thousand different ways .. but there is always a path - I've found mine through good luck and good judgement.

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!'
