A day in the life of a couple’s facilitator

A day in the life of a couple’s facilitator


For some young people, love is full of meaning. Yet, mixed-up emotions and feelings can lead young adults down a path of promiscuity, arguments and a lack of mutual appreciation in their relationships.

Ham Khemarin has been working to facilitate the problems of young couples at Karol & Setha for six months. He obtained his Bachelor’s from Royal University of Law and Economics.

He participated in one of Karol & Setha’s professional workshops, which piqued his interest in the job opening.

“Karol & Setha selects one facilitator per year. I applied for the position and passed. I believe that it was because of my potential and talent, but especially because I have expertise in compromise,” he said.
Ham Khemarin shared his experiences about his career counselling young lovers.

“Nowadays, some teenagers build their relationship very quickly. At the starting point, they only see the good without a single imperfection. Then, when they start to see the flaws of their lovers, they feel overburdened. And the question comes up – should they stop in the relationship, or should they continue, because they don’t understand what their lover’s demands are.”

Man Khemarin is not only a facilitator, but a consultant on the topic of love as well. He has been invited by some radio programs to be a guest speaker on the issues of life and love.

Man Khemarin loves his work, and finds few difficulties with his caring profession. This draws him to his work with passion.

“The problems with this job are so tiny. Because of the gang of social workers at Karol & Setha, we have a great time solving people’s problems. And if the problem is too tough to console, we also have staff with high expertise we can always turn to.”
