Self description

Male , 53

I trained as a mentor with LUCCA leadership and was given a mentee.My mentee lived in america and was backpaking around Austrailia so contact was only made through E-mails.I thought about the training i had and thought to put it to good use.I have been in the prison service 13 years and i am in the process of setting up a charity called Lighthouse mentors.The aim of the charity is to help prisoners comming to the end of their sentance and upon release.The way we aim to help is by supplying a mentor for that period and up to a year after release.I need lots of help setting up so any volunteers out there want to give a hand please feel free.I havnt a clue about funding so if anyone can direct me that would also be of help.Thanks Dunk

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!'
