Is an agony aunt a professional psychology counselor or therapist?
Or is she just a person who is good at listening to others' complaints.
An Agony Aunt is a term used to describe someone who responds to other peoples personal or relationship problems in magazines and newspapers. They do not necessarily have any professional qualifications, and if they do they will certainly publicise the fact! The psychology is that people like to read about other peoples problems which helps to sell the magazine. A sort of 'schadenfreude'
