"A professional who has the common touch"


Explanation:
"having the common touch" is an idiomatic English expression that describes precisely what you've mentioned, i.e., a person's willingness and ability to help people, to be understood by them, and not onlyto feel at ease with them but also to make them feel at ease with him/ herself. -- Hope this helps!
