My name is Ayla, I'm glad you have found me. It is my pleasure to be here for you.
I joined 7cups because I want to reach out my hand to those of you who are hurt and struggling, lost, hopeless, depressed, lonely and in need of a listening ear, feel free to reach me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Each one of you is special, unique, a warrior in the making, someone with incredible self-worth and strength. I believe that with faith, we can achieve anything.
You have the willpower to change your life. Just Look inside you.
Just like you, I have had my fair shares of struggles in life. My mental health has been up and down for years but I was blessed to find ways to help myself and get better. I still have not figured it out yet and there are days where depression hits me hard but I know that as long as I don't lose hope and I keep putting effort into myself, it would be okay. Throughout my education, and due to my main interest in mental health, as well as my own experiences, I have gained experience in the following:
-Borderline Personality Disorder
-Child abuse and incest
-Coping Skills *
-Domestic Violence Violence
-Dissociative Identity Disorder
-Sleep and insomnia
-Trauma and PTSD
*Various coping skills, related to Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Suicidal thoughts, Self-harm, OCD
How I do my chats: I will treat you with respect and kindness. I will not judge you or give you any advice but I will listen to you and provide you with a safe space to talk.
My chats are usually 60 minutes long but the time can be adjusted as needed.
* Please note that I do not and will not take any chats of sexual nature. Kindly respect that. *
Inner peace beings the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions. - Pema Chodron
