Meet Eve, the eight-year-old agony aunt

Eve Hobsbawm is a London-based life counsellor. Make contact through her website – EveProblemSolver.com – and for a small fee she will send you helpful advice.

Two weeks ago, I got in touch: I had lost my keys, and was panicking about what to cook my friends. But I also couldn’t work out how Eve manages to run a business while attending school – since she is just eight years old.

It all started in December, when Eve was seven. “The first person I exchanged business cards with said her husband was really annoying. So I said: ‘It all cancels out. You might do stuff to him that’s also really annoying.’ She was really impressed.”

Eve has consulted on roughly 40 dilemmas, with payments ranging from 10p to £5. She hopes in time to build the problem-solving equivalent of a walk-in doctor’s surgery.

Is she any good? I’d say so. Eve suggested my keys were in the hall – and they were – and recommended spaghetti as a quick and easy meal, which it was. All for £2.

This little girl is fantastic.
