Listener - Apprentice 5

Listener Rating
5.0 star rating

Hello! I'm glad you've found me on 7 Cups of Tea. I'm a trained active listener and I like to support people struggling with depression, anxiety, and many other difficulties. If I'm online, then please feel free to start a chat. Disclaimer: Please understand that due to the many other commitments in my "real" life, I'm on 7 Cups quite sporadically, and sometimes don't log in for weeks or months at a time. For this reason, as much as I would like to do follow-up chats, it's often not possible for me. If I don't reply to your follow-up message, please do not take it personally! It has nothing to do with you and everything to do with my frequently-packed schedule and limited free time.

I know how difficult it can be to reach out, especially to someone you don't know personally. Sometimes, life gets hard, and there isn't always someone to listen to you and just offer reassurance or validation, or suggestions for how to deal with your emotions. This is where I come in. I see my role as a Listener as someone to offer validation and support.

I am open to chatting with anyone about anything! If it's on your mind, I'd like to hear about it. While I have experienced a lot in my life and can give suggestions on how to deal with certain feelings, I'd like to make sure you're aware that I am not in any way a mental health professional, and that our conversations together are certainly not a replacement for seeking good professional help! I'd also like to add that I don't offer advice. I realize this may be frustrating when you need answers, but please understand that any advice I could give you would be necessarily based on the limited information you've given me, and likely wouldn't accurately reflect your situation. You know yourself best, my friend! I can only assist you in finding out what you want, and then the choice must, in the end, always be yours.

Looking forward to chatting with you!

I felt like I could talk about anything and everything with this listener. Amazing :)
A very good listener, non-judgmentally discussed a topic I had always felt ashamed about, and provided good support
Well spoken
