Best agony aunt website
A long and exhausting search online means I eventually found a GREAT agony aunt site you can trust and enjoy. As I worked in this field for over 20 years I am very fussy. I used to hire people to work for me as agony aunts.
Having worked as an agony aunt (also a clairvoyant, therapist and life coach) for many years I do know the difference between a good one and a bad one. Unfortunately for every good one there are 500 who like to believe they are good when they are not. It soothes their ego and makes them feel important if they give advice to people. Some of them have a rather lonely, empty and boring life and it is their way to feel they have a purpose and get a social lite at the same time. But it is actually very irresponsible and selfish to give advice to people if you are not able to give good advice. Giving the wrong advice is worse than giving no advice at all.
Years ago I retired, and since then I have been looking for a good website I can regularly use to keep in touch with my old life and get advice or an opinion I can trust.
I saw load of websites, mostly written by total amateurs with no idea. Others were simply believing they were good when they were not, either because of ego, boredom or money. Having looked at loads of sites I eventually found one that I like and trust. Why? This lady is not young, she is, like me, middle aged. So she must have been through many normal and sometimes worrying processes such as falling in love, having relationship or money problems. Young people might be bright but they have not faced such huge problems.
Then there is the fact that she has had a lot of famous clients, written for newspapers and magazines, been on radio and television. In fact I am amazed that she did not do as I did and retire. She is not short of money so does not need to work. But she loves to help people, and her prices are very reasonable too, considering her experience and qualifications. She also has a great chat room and a great forum you can go on to read and post and learn - totally FREE of charge. The prayer page is another good feature, where you can post and have the others pray for you and yours.
A long and exhausting search online means I eventually found a GREAT agony aunt site you can trust and enjoy. As I worked in this field for over 20 years I am very fussy. I used to hire people to work for me as agony aunts and whenever I advertised for staff I was flooded with people CLAIMING they were good at it, then you would find out they are not! It seems to me that many have a huge ego and that is why they do it, sometimes very cheap or free, rather than not do it at all. They love the idea of telling people they are an agony aunt. I recently saw a so called agony aunt writing and asking for advice on how to set up a website. If she was a true agony aunt she would have figured it out without any help. You must beware of the agony aunts online that are just there for their ego, or because they are bored and housebound, or for the money. Online agony aunts are ten a penny, which is sad but true. The good online agony aunts are actually very few and far between. And the inexperienced person would not know a good one from a bad one anyway.
As I am well qualified in this I took it upon myself to find a good agony aunt site. Partly cause I miss the world of chatting to agony aunts. Partly because I would love to be able to tell the many people who email me for advice that now that I am retired I feel safe in recommending them to someone else, rather than just saying that I CANNOT help them. A good agony aunt is fair, wise, knowledgeable, experienced and intelligent. So I would never ever advise anyone to consult a so called agony aunt that is very young. Even if they are very wise they do not have the experience of life and solving problems. With them they can only guess how they would behave or what they would do in certain situations. You need an older person to give great advice!
Charlotte Craig is the one I recommend BECAUSE she is older, qualified, has a lot of experience, has had a lot of famous clients, has often been recommended by journalists and experts. Most of all at her age she is still carrying on when many just retire or pass on all of their work to their staff. There are agony aunts out there who are a lot less experienced who refuse to deal with people at all and only write for magazines or newspapers or appear on television. The site is great because you can consult her herself, you can also get a lot of free advice about lots of things, chat in the chat room and go into the forum. I will be using the site regularly. I do not need to ask people for advice but I love to chat to others of the same ilk. Go to http://www.askagonyaunt.com. Charlotte Craig is THE agony aunt, and that is the opinio
All in all it is a great site and I will use it regularly, would be great if we bumped into each other on the forum or chat room soon. Go there whenever you need wise advice, advice you can trust. http://www.askagonyaunt.com.
