Do people in distress come to you for advice or just to let their story out? Do you think you can counsel people well?

My life is just this, when people know what I do, yes they come and talk to me.Funny thing is:even if they do not know, they seem to be drawn to me.

It does get a little hard work....because I need time out too.

I was told I am very approachable, but I have days when I would just like to be alone.
Yes, council people is part of my job anyway, I trained in Pastoral Care, along with other disciplines.
Problem is: when you evaluate for them, they still want to go their own way? Ha! and the problems don't end.
I don't really feel qualified to give advice on too many subjects but if someone wants to unload on me I'll listen.
I used to be a life coach/natural medicine practitioner, and was about to become a medical doctor. In a word, I was a counsellor. In my work, I need to get results through others - so yes I am seen as someone who helps someone else with their mindset.
Yes people approach me many times. But mostly I do only work of listening, that solves the problem. Usually I don't advise because I'm not in that situation and my reaction may not be the right one.
I am a good listener, but not great. I start feeling the pain and distress others are feeling, which keeps me awake at nights and starts affecting me in other ways, so I'd rather not be the counselor. However, for the record, let me state that my sister has told me at more than one occasions that I always say the right thing!
No but I'm happy to listen, or look out for people in need of a friend.
I got a few chances to be am agony aunt and i realised it makes me very uncomfortable.
