I am Skye, I speak fairly good tamil, and if you like, you can call me Bhagya so Hey you!I am also super duper very much on break right now (A levels, wish me luck!). Hope you find another lovely listener, friend! And I am proud of you for being here~ Asking for help takes just as much courage as offering help.
On a side-mushy-note, know that I miss this place every single day with every inch of my tiny fist-sized heart. (no one can say I'm not the most accuratest of the accurate #Skyentist) ♥
psst. I promise I'll be back ♥
Thanks for checking out my profile. I'm Alex, and I'm a trained Active Listener here at 7 Cups.
I have been through many experiences dealing with depression, stress, and trauma in my day, and I still struggle with anxiety. So, I can most likely relate to you and your experiences.
As an Active Listener, my job here is to listen to you, whether you're ranting to me or simply seeking a friendly voice to have a conversation. Just know that you are never alone, and I commend your strength and perseverence.
Most of my Active Listening days are spent on prescheduled chats, but if you would prefer immediate support, you can enter the queue to speak with the next available Listener here at any time, 24/7/365.
What do I feel comfortable helping with?
There are many different topics that I am willing to chat with you about, and many of them are listed below. However, nobody's experiences are ever cookie-cutter in nature, so please do not let my listed areas of expertise turn you away from seeking my support - simply send me a message and I will be more than happy to listen to you.
What do I do outside of Active Listening?
What I love about 7 Cups is how much more there is to it than simply connecting 1-1 with a Listener. With that said, here's a list of what I do here at 7 Cups, other than listening to Members and Guests:
Community Mentor Leader (Listener Learning & Journey Subcommunity)
Global Group Moderator (I can mod all Group Support Chatrooms)
Peer Supporter (Listeners - I'm here for you after you've had a rough chat!)
Chatroom Teen Star (I moderate Listener Chatrooms)
Quality Teen Star (I grade Active Listening 2 exams)
Forum Teen Star (I monitor the Forum Flags and moderate the Forums)
Teen Anxiety Support Team Leader
Group Support Chatroom Doorkeeper

His name is Ollie, and he brightened my day up like nothing else had before.
Hello! My name is Stitch, experiment 626! I have been a listener on 7cups since 2014 and it has been a pleasure to support people all over the world who have come to me with various struggles or just needing someone to hear them out. I take a non-judgmental stance in all of my conversations and provide the best support I can. That being said, support does not mean advice. If you are looking for advice, I can not give you that, I can only help you figure out what is best for you. I do not know 100% of your situation and advice from someone who doesn’t know your environment, background, etc. can unintentionally lead to more harm than good.
I am in my late 20s, but most people think I am much younger and can connect with people ranging from teens to late 20s best. I recently graduated with my Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and a minor in applied behavioral science and will begin working as a behavior skills therapist for children on the autism spectrum.
People find that I am very compassionate and I care a great deal about the members I support. Areas that I have most experience with are related to mental health including:
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Borderline Personality Disorder
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
And others.Currently I’m not in any major leadership roles but I have been a community mentor leader for the BPD subcommunity, I also have been forum mentor, chatroom mentor, group mod, and support session leader for various topics.
If I don’t respond right away it’s not that I am ignoring you, sometimes I have to take some time for self-care, especially as I jump back into things.
Hey amazing human beings, yes even you are amazing! My name is Lee and I am non-binary, so I go by they/them pronouns. I believe that everyone who comes in this world deserves support and am glad to be your support! My schedule is always changing so I may not be able to answer you right away but I promise I will try to respond when I can. If you want a 45min chat time you can message me to schedule that time!
I have personal experience with self harm, an eating disorder, trauma, bipolar disorder and Crohn's disease! I understand things can be hard but I am here for you. I support those will all things said above but I take pretty much all topics
For listeners: I am a Chatroom, Forum and Teen Transitioning Mentor! Currently I am accepting teen mentees only if you are a teen then please don't hesitate to message me! If you aren't you can message me but I won't be as responsive
Roles and Teams: Global Forum Mentor ☆ Global Forum Supporter ☆ Peer Support ☆ Adult & Teen Chatroom Mentor ☆ Teen Transitioning Mentor ☆ Global Group Support Moderator ☆ Q&A Team ☆ Safety Patrol ☆ Wiki Team ☆ Social Soldier- Twitter Track ☆ Around the World Subcommunity Team

Letting you all know I'm going to be away from January 2nd to January 28th beause I'm going on a trip with my family! I probably won't have WiFi at all so I'm very sorry if I can't get back at you during this time! Take lots of care and Happy New Year!---------
Thanks for stumbling into my profile :) It's very nice to see you! I'm Mel and I'm a young girl from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I'm a college student majoring in physics. In the future I would love to work in a laboratory studying neuroscience and illnesses regarding the human brain! I work as a support teacher for young kids mostly. I love teaching and explaining things - I think everybody deserves their chance at understanding a difficult matter, even if they need more time for it than someone else would.
I'm not much of a talker as a listener. I feel like it's very important that every single person out there has someone to rely on and be there for them. I want you to feel like you can tell me anything on your mind, feel heard, understood and never judged. That's what I aim for. I know I can't change your life nor magically solve your problems (Although I would really like to be able to do that) but I do can promise to be here, as much as possible and as much as you need. I'm your friend and I'll always care about you. I deal my own battles every day and I know that talking helps. You are never alone here.
I would like to be a writer someday, because books mean a lot to me. Everything I want is what I write to be special for someone, if I could make at least one (only one) person feel something by something I wrote, I would already feel realized. Writing has always come naturally to me. It's who I am. As a kid, I would always grab a pencil and write, instead of drawing. I would always make stories up in my mind to tell other people. I would always write too much, speak too much, and take too long to tell an anecdote. I was born a storyteller. At the moment, I just do it for fun and for myself or my closest ones.Anything else you would like to know about me, feel free to message me and ask, I'm pretty much an open book! and will love to get to know eachother more. Right now I have a very tight schedule, and I get aroun 5-10 new chats daily. Therefor my status is mostly offline because I can't take many more chats. I'm mainly working with scheduled chats only. If you need immediate help, I would recommend reaching to someone in the browse listeners page! My responses can take 2-3 days - but I'm always listening!
I joined 7Cups in August 2014. A month later, September 23th, I became a Teen Star, and it was an honor to be able to do that which such an awesome group of people.
