Hi there I've been on the site, supporting people for a good few years now on 7 cups of tea and Im glad i found a site where people can talk openly about their experiences/views/opinions/problems without being judged!

I've been off and on due to personal issues but hope to be a lot more active now 😁

I have studied counselling and picked up skills which were active listening skills,empathy and good communication skills.I have also worked with people with mental health issues,learning difficulties , depression and much more . I have worked with lots of people in different settings and from different backgrounds so please do not worry or be afraid of asking me any questions.

I have experienced difficulties in life such as depression and chronic pain so im not patronising and i'm human like everyone else in the world i've picked up different ways and coping mechanisms to help me overcome any challenging things i come across its always good to talk and listen to others and look at their perspective on things and the way they see things Hope to hear from people soon :) take care
