Active listening is like kindness and empathy, simple enough in principle. and a life time task to master fully. Because of my background I feel more naturally able to help people struggling with stressful emotional situations, toxic or difficult family situations, or with anxiety, PTSD, depression. Many times in the past I could overcome hardhips and difficulties simply by having a chance to talk to someone who really listened. I'd like to "pay that kindness forward" now by listening to you on 7Cups.
Don't be fooled by all the topic training badges on my profile page: that only means I got acquainted to the topic, not that I am an expert! But I will be happy to try and help you regardless, as a fellow human. If I am online, feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline, you can send me a message so we can set up a time to chat. I look forward to it. I have work and life commitments, so I don't have as much free time as I would like, but I will do my best to be available several times a week to help out.

Feedback & Reviews
Charlie was incredibly kind, empathetic and an extremely great listener. They let me vent everything I was feeling and concerned about and then helped me not only feel better about my problem but actually find a solution! I honestly didn’t see a way for there to be a solution without a big confrontation, but they found it! I stepped into the chat room with a black mood and feelings of hopelessness, but left uplifted, free and light. They were truly amazing, better than many “actual” therapists I’ve seen and much quicker as well! I cannot thank them enough, this changed not only my whole day, my week, but will have long-lasting positive effects on my relationship. They are THE. BEST. EVER!!! I hope they stay as volunteers forever! This was my first time using 7 Cups and I will be recommending it to everyone I know!!!
Charlie40 has been awesome. I have a complicated situation and They're is helping me a lot. They're giving me concrete, actionable advice and also being very empathetic and validating how I feel, which I really needed both of. Awesome, awesome listener!!
i'm so glad for sharing my thoughts with him, really great and helpful.
They are kind, respectful and honest. Not afraid to share, doesn't hold back questions, but respects boundaries.
Very nice, supportive and inspiring chat
He is really helping
Charlie40 gave me some incredible insights in to what is a very painful situation. They reassured me and gave me some hope that I haven’t been able to find so far. I can’t rate this person more highly.
A perfect person for this position in this app. A very good listener and so helpful, sweet and encouraging!
A very good listener, listened to me so actively and patiently. I can't be more grateful
Great human being with lots of good thesis..
Wonderful listener, I know they are only just starting their journey as a listener but I have a good feeling that they will be a great asset to our community. Really great at active listening skills. I'm happy they are a part of the community and felt happy that they truly were listening to me
