Mr O, I need some advice about how to give advice!

What has brought this on?

It’s like this: a friend recently came to see me about a very serious problem. I think I was able to help him, but it made me realise that I’ve never really thought about how to deal with people who ask for counsel.

You need to know that I have had no formal training in this area. But over the last sixty years I have spent a lot of time listening to people’s problems, and I’ve now got to the stage where this is my principal occupation.

So what is your approach?
