Thanks for checking out my profile. I'm Alex, and I'm a trained Active Listener here at 7 Cups.
I have been through many experiences dealing with depression, stress, and trauma in my day, and I still struggle with anxiety. So, I can most likely relate to you and your experiences.
As an Active Listener, my job here is to listen to you, whether you're ranting to me or simply seeking a friendly voice to have a conversation. Just know that you are never alone, and I commend your strength and perseverence.
Most of my Active Listening days are spent on prescheduled chats, but if you would prefer immediate support, you can enter the queue to speak with the next available Listener here at any time, 24/7/365.
What do I feel comfortable helping with?
There are many different topics that I am willing to chat with you about, and many of them are listed below. However, nobody's experiences are ever cookie-cutter in nature, so please do not let my listed areas of expertise turn you away from seeking my support - simply send me a message and I will be more than happy to listen to you.
What do I do outside of Active Listening?
What I love about 7 Cups is how much more there is to it than simply connecting 1-1 with a Listener. With that said, here's a list of what I do here at 7 Cups, other than listening to Members and Guests:
Community Mentor Leader(Listener Learning & Journey Subcommunity)
Global Group Moderator(I can mod all Group Support Chatrooms)
Peer Supporter(Listeners - I'm here for you after you've had a rough chat!)
Chatroom Teen Star (I moderate Listener Chatrooms)
Quality Teen Star (I grade Active Listening 2 exams)
Forum Teen Star(I monitor the Forum Flags and moderate the Forums)
Alex is the absolute best listener I've ever had. He's so caring and understanding. He's the only listener I've had who actually sounds like they want to talk with you. Thank you so much. ♥
Alex for President!
You´re a good listener ;)
Alex was amazing to say the least. They truily cared even though my problem was insignificant to me. They helped me open up when no-one else cared to. I would recommend them ten times over
Alex was a great listener, he really made me feel understood and like someone cares about what I am going through and experiencing.
they help so much
You are great
The Response Time was a little slow, which doesn't bother me. akaAlex put lots of warmth into her text and I knew she cared, which helped cheer me up quite a bit
Thank you alex you really help me.
took the time to listen to me and understand how I was feeling rather than rushing me along. thank you so much. feeling a lot better now.

This person listens and actively responds to the conversation almost immediately. I recommend for anyone who needs to talk.
I'm glad I had somewhere to let my emotions out inside of bottling them
He is a great listener. He is really nice and a down to earth person. I thank him for giving me a boost up and for him to be the first one ever to spill my story to. I really like him he is awesome!!! I hope he is happy outside this site because he deserves it.
She was great. Really appreciate it!
They knew just what to say. They didn't judge and they knew exactly how I was feeling. They made me feel more confident in finding help.
