| Teen Quality Mentor | Teen Transition Mentor |Active Listening 1 (Grading & Feedback)You can call me Abhe!Greetings, I'm so glad that you've reached out for help. I know that life can seem like a complicated journey sometimes. During this time, it is not unusual to feel overwhelmed, confused or frustrated. My goal is to provide comfort and care for you as well as a safe and non-judgemental space to talk about everything and anything. Sometimes we just want someone to listen, and even that alone can be therapeutic. I am willing to listen to you and help you understand your thoughts and feelings better. You don't have to feel you are alone on the journey.
Not taking new chats!!
Piney is not available as she is off living her life. Many apologies to all the people who I have talked to and since have stopped. I know how rude and selfish that is of me, but it's really for the best of everyone involved. As always, my love goes out to everyone.
Stand firm, and you will win life.

Hi there! Welcome to 7 Cups of Tea :)
I’m a trained active teen and adult listener and I like to support people struggling with about anything. I came here to find help myself and I did and it made me feel a lot better and I want to do the same for others by listening to them. I love to read and listen to music. You can vent out, think out loud, talk about anything you like and I will be here to listen to you without judging you at all as I know how hard it is to open up. I want you to feel safe with me while you talk and know that I am here for you.

HI There Nice to Meet You, I am kerry! I would like to say how brave and strong you are right now for even taking the leap to come here the first step in reaching out for some support and a listening ear from me, I have been in my own therapy so I know how dificult it is to be vulnerable and fragile I know how tough it can be to be open about whats going on but I want you to know that I have been on the other foot I have experienced my own fare share and alot in my life and I know how difficult it is to even come here and I want to thank you for making that step.
On the 27th Febuary 2016 I began my journey being as an Active Listener providing emotional support to my members we build a safe confidential environment within our chats so my members are able to fully express themselves. We build a good trusting rapport that provides a space for my members to feel comfortable to talk and for me to listen in a compassionate way we work together to make sense of the experiences my members are facing so they are able to see in a clear way and able to understand themselves a lot better. I provide genuine care support with a unique empathetic approach that my members are able to reach to me for consistent support and encourage my members to find other healthy ways of coping better with their struggles.I help them recognise there achievements and we build upon goals that they can work towards building a better positive path in which I support them throughout. I have learnt alot over my time as a Listener and the kind of difficulties my members may face and it helps me to understand the complexities of these difficulties and know that every experience is different so I am very open minded and don’t judge a person or any situation I explore and gain a deeper understanding of what one self is going through and how they are really feeling. I have a deep insightful mind where I am self aware of myself which means I am able to easily empathetically connect with others naturally on a deep level. You are not alone in this journey lets grow together <3 thank you for reading lovelys. I have a Diploma In Bereavement and Grief Counselling I have a Diploma in Counselling Skills and I am working on my personal therapy and furthering my study as one day I want to be a counsellor/therapist.

Activity Scheduling Activities can be connected to the way you feel. If you track feelings of depression, you may discover that when you are depressed you are more passive and less active. Following the observation that depressed people tend to stop doing pleasurable activities, depression treatments often emphasize increasing the weekly number of pleasurable activities. Additional ways to improve mood:
Surround yourself with people who have a positive impact on you
Invest in friendships and have a “go to” person that you can trustBecome more forgiving - forgive yourself and forgive others
Build on areas of strength and note evidence for new beliefs that replace old negative beliefs (praise yourself for things you accomplish)Keep a gratitude journal

Understanding what depression is begins the journey toward recovering from depression. You may not realize that depression symptoms are not just emotional. Depression is much more than a low mood, feeling sad, and being irritable. There are cognitive (e.g., self-criticism and hopeless thoughts), behavioral (e.g., isolating from others and having difficulty ’getting started’ with activities), and physical (e.g., sleep problems and change in appetite) symptoms as well. The mind and body are very much connected, and the way that depression affects someone demonstrates that strong connection. Learn more about what depression is by reading the Depression Guide on 7 Cups of Tea’s website.

This is a test, a test to see if you are a human. Please note if something applies to you:Have you ever eaten a booger long past your childhood?Have you ever made a small, weird sound when you remembered something embarrassing?Have you ever purposely lower-cased the first letter of a text in order to come across as sad or disappointed?Have you ever ended a text with a period as a sign of aggression?Have you ever laughed or smiled when someone said something unpleasant to you, and you wondered the rest of the day why you reacted that way?Have you ever put on a pair of pants, and then realized much later that there was a loose sock smushed up against your thigh?Have you ever tried to guess someone else's password so many times that it locked their account?Have you ever had a nagging feeling that one day you will be discovered as a fraud?Have you ever hoped that there was some ability you hadn't discovered yet that you were just naturally talented at?Have you ever broken something in real life, and then found yourself looking for an "undo" button in real life?Have you ever marveled at how someone you thought was so ordinary could suddenly become so beautiful?Have you ever stared at your phone smiling like an idiot while texting someone?Have you ever subsequently texted that person the phrase, "I'm staring at the phone, smiling like an idiot"?Have you ever been tempted to, and gave into that temptation, of looking through someone else's phone?Have you ever had a conversation with yourself, and then suddenly realized you're a terrible person to yourself?Has your phone ever run out of battery in the middle of an argument, and it sort of felt like the phone was breaking up with both of you?Have you ever thought that working on an issue between you and yourself was futile, because it should just be easier than this, or this is supposed to happen just naturally?Have you ever realized that very little, in the long run, just happens naturally?Have you ever woken up blissfully, and suddenly been flooded by the awful rememberence that someone had left you?Have you ever lost the ability to imagine a future without a person that no longer was in your life?Have you ever looked back on that event with the sad smile of autumn and the realization that futures will happen, regardless?Congratulations, you have now completed and passed the test. You are human.Want to know who has the best 7 Cups profile? Click here!
