Self description

Male , 66

I am currently a self employed driving instructor living in Devon, married with 2 grown up children. I spend a lot of my spare time investing and studying the stockmarkets and am interested in personal finance generally with knowledge of savings and investments. I do voluntary work with the prison service involving prisoner care and also the Samaritans as a listener. I recently applied to work for 1/2 day a week in an Information and Advice Center and have also done other voluntary jobs with Age Concern and Victim Support. I now have some spare time to share with and help others.

Life experiences

Helping others

Listening is what the Samaritans is all about. I am currently working with the Samaritans and hopefully will be able to use these skills to help others.

Finance

This a favourite part time job of mine where i may be of some assistance to others who need help or guidance in the right direction. I mainly specialise in stock market investments and savings.

Health

I have not been blessed with good health and have suffered from the Auto Immune diseases, Lupus (SLE) and also Myositis (DM) for many years. I have learned a lot about them and hopefully will get to learn more on this site and pass on what i have learnt. Working has been very difficult at times but i always try to have a smile on my face and be there for others at every chance.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

This is a fantastic idea for lots of people. Some are unable to get out and about or are to shy to ask friends or relatives for help. One reason the Samaritans is successful is because people are afraid to ask their friends or partners for help as they may be told things like," Thats nothing to worry about, you'll be ok in the morning". This site will be ideal for them to get assistance with anonymity. I feel i have something to offer and also much more to learn.

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!'
