Commonly known as James Gillespie...  I’m a 36 year old amateur photographer with a passion for life and a love of obscure boardgames, clever puns, home-made cheese scones and positive thinking. I live in sunny Bournemouth with my gorgeous wife Allie and some unusual pets... including my tortoise and a stone gargoyle!
I have an interesting background in managing and leading a large range of Mental-Health services across the UK and I hold a post graduate qualification in Clinical Leadership - Planning and Leading Service Innovation and the QCF Level 5 in Leadership & Management. I am passionate about helping individuals to reach their potential, whilst creating modern & dynamic services that are confidently marketed to referrers and commissioners. I also have a keen interest in developing new systems for organisations & individual projects to evidence and quantify their outcomes.
I currently hold a senior management position within a major Mental Health charity.... leading the strategic and operational development of Mental Health services across the South East :) Whilst being the operational Health & Safety lead for the entire organisation.
I have my own website Astroduck.com and in 2013 I started a Christmas T-Shirt Store called www.Grottomotto.co.uk where I sell a range of amusing T-shirts that I design myself.
Joyful Salutations! Yes.. it is I, CustardMoonboots or as I am now more commonly known online 'Whistway'. The bizarre etymology of the name is quite different but equally silly! Hmmm… “ Quite different and equally silly” that sounds like some other people that I know! ;) - Whistway
Many thanks :) No one has ever 'cursed my parting' before... I will try to brush my hair a different way --Whistway
I am employed by a large mental health charity, As a service manager for a large mental health community services team in East Dorset :) I always wanted the power to make a difference... I have it now and its rather scary ;)
Is that new? Congratulations, if so :) - SunKitten
I have been in this particular role since Nov 07... but it's still pretty new - so thanks for the congratulations :) --Whistway
