Counsellor may not be an Astrologer but an Astrologer should be also a good counsellor.
Though, prediction is a technical part, conveying prediction to the client should be in the form of counselling.
Few months back, One Client came to me for consultation who was totally Depressed & was having SUICIDAL thoughts as well. His horoscope was NOT showing Short Life at all. Still, I did some counselling to him & he felt better. This week, during phone consultation, he told me that he cracked some BIG deal & got some BIG order for his company. I could feel the happiness in his voice.
