Hello! I'm really glad you've made that first step to come to 7cupsoftea and I'm glad you're seeking someone to talk to. I'm a trained active listener here at 7 Cups. I also have a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and CPD-accredited qualifications in counselling and psychotherapy as well as a Level 4 Advanced Psychology qualification. I would like to help anyone struggling with depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, bullying, abuse, self harm, eating disorders and suicidal ideation. Whatever the problem, I'm here to listen to you. I've overcome a lot myself, all of the above in fact, which is why I want to make a difference to your life today and give you an ear to listen. In my spare time I write poetry and fiction, and am an activist in animal rights and an advocate for mental health. If I am online, please feel free to start a chat. If I am offline, then send me a message and we can arrange a slot of time to connect! Happy to see you are here. x
