Posting for traffic....

Absolutely fascinating to watch . She is SO good at what she does!

Loves deep stuff smile

I thought she was a bit odd with him. A bit flirty? Quite different from how she has dealt with the women clients they've shown in previous episodes.

ILookAtLifeFromBothSidesNow Wed 01-Feb-17 23:17:34

Really?! I absolutely did not see that at all!

ILookAtLifeFromBothSidesNow Wed 01-Feb-17 23:19:26

I do think she was more cautious with him than previous episodes bit flirty, no, definitely not

Merrylegs Wed 01-Feb-17 23:19:58

Yes I thought this too Neolara. I learned more about her than I did him tbh. She was rather 'narrating' him.

ILookAtLifeFromBothSidesNow Wed 01-Feb-17 23:23:55

Oh my goodness, l'll have to re-watch it at some point to see if I missed something! Body language etc.

Youremywifenow Wed 01-Feb-17 23:24:47

To be fair, I think I'd go a bit funny if Calum was in front of me. He is obscenely pretty.

ILookAtLifeFromBothSidesNow Wed 01-Feb-17 23:27:51

Yourmy, yes, I can't argue with that...he is gorgeous!

Good therapists are supposed to listen, not talk. They're supposed to tease the info out of their client and help them put it back together in an order that is constructive

ILookAtLifeFromBothSidesNow Wed 01-Feb-17 23:30:06

I've enjoyed all the episodes, especially the sessions with Danniella Westbrook...but sad and painful to watch at the same time.

ILookAtLifeFromBothSidesNow Wed 01-Feb-17 23:32:00

But surely they 'tease' the info out by talking? How else would they get the client to open up?

KathArtic Wed 01-Feb-17 23:32:20

Good point Merry! I don't think she understood him at all. He didn't fit with what she knew, but it maybe was just cut and pasted in a bad way.

It was disappointing as having watched him in BB I wanted to find out more about him.

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 01-Feb-17 23:32:34

She didn't ask him about his abandoned child, so it was all a bit pointless.

Patriciathestripper1 Wed 01-Feb-17 23:33:42

I thought she was flirty with him too but then he is gorge 👅

Patriciathestripper1 Wed 01-Feb-17 23:34:45

shock he has abandoned a child?

dataandspot Wed 01-Feb-17 23:39:23

He has a child and she didn't ask him about that?!

All the stuff about no relationship with his father and he doesn't see his child?!

Crowdblundering Wed 01-Feb-17 23:41:02

I think she is a fucking appalling counsellor.

LesisMiserable Wed 01-Feb-17 23:43:59

Watching it now. So very many men like him . Boxed off.

Crowdblundering Wed 01-Feb-17 23:45:33

She brings up past clients to her clients it's so unprofessional- she's awful.

Gives her opinions, advises, talks WAY too much.

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 01-Feb-17 23:48:54

Yes, he has a daughter that he refuses to acknowledge. Makes a mockery of the whole programme and the tales of woe about his relationship with his father.

karmassidekick Wed 01-Feb-17 23:53:59

I liked it. As an adult child of an alcoholic myself I felt I could really empathise with callum, I actually feel it's given me a better understanding of myself and my own issues too. I felt myself nodding along, abandonment issues, commitment phobic eye on the back door, keeping things packed away are all traits I can recognise in myself.
I didn't know about his abandoned child.

IMissGrannyW Wed 01-Feb-17 23:58:27

how can anyone take seriously another person who lives out his life by appearing on 'reality' tv? But it's ok, apparently, because he's pretty.

M00nUnit Wed 01-Feb-17 23:59:30

Just Googled it... There's a Mirror article about a woman saying he's the father of her daughter. No idea where he really is or not.

karmassidekick Thu 02-Feb-17 00:07:15

Granny can you not have some empathy for the guy? His triumphs and traumas have led him to make the choices he has, pretty much like most people in one way or another. I'm not a big fan of reality TV or its stars but I can imagine having that name and the issues that came with it are proably a big factor for him. He said himself he feels exploited by it but what else can he do?
