Hello and a warm welcome from New Zealand. It takes a lot of courage and strength to reach out and talk about painful things that matter to you. If this is the first time you’ve talked about your story, you’re doing an incredibly brave thing that will put you back on the road to life and wellness. Apart from 7cupsoftea I am a trained telephone counsellor and completed a certificate in Suicide Prevention. I am currently in my third year of completing my counselling degree. I am devoting my life to helping people get through all types of mental illness and relationship struggles because I know from first hand experience the power of talking openly and vulnerably. On a personal note, I’ve struggled with anxiety, depression and panic, but through reaching out like you, I’ve learned to be more self-aware and equip myself with the tools I need to manage myself so that I can be functional and in good relationship with myself and the people I encounter. Please note, at the moment I am only able to offer what's called "Brief Intervention" which is designed to help people ground and centre themselves for issues that are based in the present, here and now. If it becomes apparent that your issue are based in the past or require deeper, more long term care from a qualified professional, it's better if you reach out to a face to face therapist. I'll let you know if that's the case as we chat. If I am online, please feel free to contact me. I’m glad you’re here, let’s get through this together.

A listener who is willing to spend quality time and access your problems. 10/10
I've had a few conversations on here with some listeners but none as attentive and detailed as this one.

He is very concise and on point with his statements and listens to you. Invests the time and dedication to truly understand what you're going through and for that I can only say great hings about him. He helped me in a time of need and I have absolutely no doubt he can do the same for you. Thank you again brother you made a difference and it matters. Stay safe and keep optimistic
