Agony Aunt Personal Statement
I have worked as an agony aunt for my local newspaper for the
last five years. I have dealt with various issues from sexual health to financial
troubles. I am very good at giving advice to people in overcoming their problems
by providing realistic solutions. I have experience of working as a psychologist
at a private clinic where I dealt with a wide range of issues.
The issues were mainly to do with the patients fear of inadequacies. For example
an individual was having trouble communicating with work colleagues on a personal
level, so I advised him to participate more by going to parties and also try
to attempt to have a drink after work. The main thing I told him to relax firstly,
if you have trouble talking, ask them what they would be doing for the weekend
and see where it goes.
I have excellent writing skills; I am very competent when writing my articles
onto computer. I can effectively communicate my thoughts onto paper. I keep
up to date with latest social and sexual issues by reading specialist magazines
and specialist sites. I am confident that by employing me as the agony aunt
for your national newspaper I will be able to continue to do what I do best
at a grander scale.
