Self description

Female , 17

I'm 17 years old, and have aspirations to become a clinical psychologist when I am older. My hobbies include writing poetry and playing music (especially the violin).

Life experiences

Depression

I suffer from this, and I am on the road to recovery. However, I feel like people have a lot of stigma towards the mental illness and I want to show them that they can get better in the long run. I have a lot of experience to share.

Family and Relationships

I feel like I can empathise well on this subject with other people. I tend to give good advice to my own peers who struggle with their own family and relationships and I would love to extend that out to more people.

School

As a student in sixth form, I have been through the majority of school and I have had plentiful experiences, both good and bad. I want to be able to help people in any situation in school, from bullying to the transition from primary to secondary school.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I want to become a mentor because I care about others' well-being a lot. I definitely feel that I have the traits required to be a good mentor too, such as empathy and being able to understand. I believe I am capable of motivating and giving advice to others that are in need of it. As my future career plans are to be a psychologist, this experience of being a mentor would allow for me to develop my skills, and I would very much like the chance to be able to develop them through this.

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!'
