  • Prostitution is often referred to as the oldest profession whereas therapy is amongst the newest. At first sight they may appear strange bedfellows, but perhaps they have more in common than you might suppose By Kevin Chandler

  • In practice - Beginnings
  • Kevin Chandler
  • Category : Columns
  • To me, beginnings are as fascinating as endings, although I’ll save comment upon the latter for some future column. I find it intriguing how couples meet and, at some point in their first counselling session, I usually ask about that first encounter.

  • In practice - The limits of care
  • Kevin Chandler
  • Category : Columns
  • The doorbell cut like a starter pistol through our Friday morning lie-in. My wife looked up from her novel and I sneaked a glance across at her from beyond the sports pages, our silent stares issuing the identical message: ‘Well, are you going or do I have to?’

  • Kevin Chandler
  • Category : Columns
  • Throughout the three decades I’ve plied my trade in the counsellor’s chair, I’ve been required to submit to regular one-to-one supervision. I am now on my eighth supervisor, all bar one of them, women.

  • Kevin Chandler
  • Category : Columns
  • The two elderly aunts lived together, spinster and widow, my closest relatives other than my wife and small children. I would call by every fortnight or so, and the visits prior to Christmas, Easter, or the children’s birthdays took on a familiar pattern

    Three hours between clients. The sun is shining and it’s a shame to be indoors. The tall front hedge needs trimming and even with my new extendable battery-powered hedge-trimmer it’s a job I don’t relish, fearing one day I’ll over-reach and topple off the ladder

  • ‘So what qualities do you think make for a good counsellor?’ The radio presenter’s microphone stared hard and expectantly into my face, eagerly awaiting the required sound bite.

  • In practice - Not just another day
  • Kevin Chandler
  • Category : Columns
  • I read of some research indicating that most clients prefer their counsellor to be of similar age to themselves, or a little older. If so, maybe I need to amend my directory entry and specify that middle-age anxieties are now a speciality.
