*** Per 7 Cups policy, I do NOT accept Listener2Listener Support Chats. You will need to change to your Member account for support. ***On 7 Cups of Tea - I was a 7 Cups Mentor, was a Chat Support Group Moderator, and I still assist with Relationship Support within Forums Only.I've taken more time to dedicate my energy and effort to my family (new adoption), education (completing my MA), and work which takes up considerable time. I'm on 7 Cups of Tea when I have a moment to breathe. I'm here - just not as frequently as I once was.I'm heading towards my Master's Degree in Psychology and plan to become a licensed therapist in the near future once licensing has completed.Specific areas of specialty include:* Relationships - Boyfriend/Girlfriend Husband/Wife Issues
* All Aspects of Sexuality and Sexual Issues(If you have issues outside this area, I strongly encourage you to locate another Listener who is more equipped to handle your situation.)Qualifications:I hold several (6) degrees from regionally accredited universities and I'm also well read, easy to talk to, understanding, and have had a wealth of life experiences that makes talking to me simple... as someone who has probably been through some of the things that you have. I'm open-minded, motivational, and sometimes quite inspirational - providing those words that you may know you need to hear deep down, but unable to bring to the surface on your own. My words may not always be what you want to hear but you can depend on me to give you complete honesty. Also, I am not a judge or jury.
Confidentiality Statement:There is nothing you can say that will shock me. I take confidentiality VERY seriously. I will never tell anyone what you've shared with me in confidence. I'm here to provide a mirror, lamp, window, ladder, or a boat to a much more positive mental location than where you are now.Ground Rules for Discussions:1. I am not obligated to do anything other than listen to your issues. I am NOT paid for this work. I am, much like most on 7 Cups, a volunteer. I volunteer spare time that I have in order to help people through very difficult issues. Please maintain a high level of respect as a result. My time is consumed with a full-time job that is not related to this site along with college work to complete my degree. I volunteer for 7 Cups of Tea when I have the available time.
2. Simply because I listen to sexual situations or discussions is NOT an invite to engage in sexually stimulating conversation with me. I have a zero tolerance policy for this behavior. Our discussion is only therapeutic purposes and there are other sites where you can engage in this form of behavior if that is what you need - 7 Cups is not one of them.3. This is not Match.com. I am not interested in dating, meeting in real life, or sharing my personal information.4. Please keep your conversations to a maximum of 30 minutes to respect other members and guests - without prior approval for extensions. Please understand in advance that our relationship is not any sense of a long-term relationship or replacement for in-person support, therapy, or psychiatric care. I am also not equipped to provide to you on-going or long-term support of any type.
5. Please leave feedback! Your feedback is very valuable. My goal is to provide stellar service and I can only improve by your voicing your opinion on my delivery, approach, and professionalism.
6. I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who is rude, profane, or disrespectful.
7. I am not politically correct. I am not the Listener on 7 Cups that will gleefully tell you what you want to hear nor will I placate you with sweet nothings. I tell it like it is, but I do try to be tactful about it. Please note that if you connect with me, I'm going to be polite, professional, but I'm going to look at the situation from 360 degrees as best as I can to provide the best kind of support. If you're looking for PC discussions, placating conversation, patting you on the back when it is not warranted - there are other Listeners on 7 Cups that will be more than happy to accept your request to chat.
8. If you are on your Listener Account, I will either request that you use your Member Account or not respond at all. I used to request corrections, but I'm flooded with Listener requests for support which is against site policy. I'd love to talk to you, but not on your Listener Account. Thanks in advance.
NOTICE! I am now available to accept new long-term members. If you are a listener and would like to become verified, then please PM me. My next break will be mid to the end of October, until then I am online most days. Feedback and booking system can now be found at the bottom of this bio. Thanks. Hello! Thanks for taking the time to read my bio! I have been with 7 Cups for quite some time, and during this time have been part of many different teams and roles here in the community. However, now I’m just focusing on supporting people 1-1 in my spare time; but who knows what the future may hold! I tend to log-in most days, so I do my best to reply quickly if you would like to message me. About MeI have been supporting people on the site since 2016, and during this time I have held quite a few roles. I come from Ireland, however have spent most of my life living in England. I have quite a cool job working with animals at a rescue, although most of my time is spent at a desk I love the opportunity to work with the animals themselves! I currently go to college near where I live, and alongside this I volunteer at quite a few places, including 7 Cups! HobbiesIce Hockey, I can’t get enough of it, and by the way, the teams I follow are Edmonton Oilers and Coventry Blaze. Pets, I enjoy spending time with my own pets, a dog, fish, hamsters and rats. Yep, rats. Travelling and learning about different cultures. I enjoy travelling to place and alongside this writing to my pen-pals across the globe. American Dad and Family Guy, as I’m a Seth Macfarlane fan! Peter Griffin was my profile picture here at one point. Helping those in need. I know that’s very cheesy and cliché, but I really do love chatting with people in need of help on 7 Cups, or other ways of supporting someone in need. What can you talk to me about? You can talk to me about anything! Literally. I’m not here to judge but listen and just be supportive. I’m open to everyone and anyone who needs a listener. Everything you tell me is completely confidential. I understand what it's like to need someone to be there for you, a person who you can tell your problems too or just simply take your mind of things for a bit. My inbox is open to everyone.

AdVictoriamMy Introduction to You, Dear WarriorWelcome to 7 Cups of Tea. I'm glad you found me :)
I'm AdVictoriam. My chats primarily focus on personal development and relationship coaching, whether the relationship is with friends, family, or loved ones. You can see my full list of categories below my profile intro.
"Unbent, unbowed, unbroken" is one of my favorite mottos because no matter what happens to me, I have the right to not let it break me. I'm here because I want to "pay it forward" and help others get through their struggles.
On Relationships: I believe that there are different types of love, and our relationships and connections aren't only about the romantic kind! It's super important to have all four types, and not focus on just one type :)
This blog post does a good job explaining the four lovesEssie is my personal mentor, listener, and rock. If you can't reach me for some reason, you can contact her as well.

There are many ups in life as well as many downs but it is up to the author of each story to determine the next chapter.* ~Anya Members/GuestMental health is important 365 days/year. Many people suffer from mental health issues but they are too afraid to speak about it because of the stigma all around us. But what’s harder than dealing with mental health issues, is pretending that you aren’t struggling. You shouldn’t have to pretend like you are always okay, out of fear that others will judge you or talk about you or think any less of you. No matter what you are dealing with, you are still you. The only thing that matters is that you know your strength and your courage, and let me tell you, everything that you are is more than enough, no matter who you are or what you are going through. So don’t be ashamed of any part of it. Your battles are what shape you into that strong and amazing person. And no matter what anyone tells you, it’s okay not to feel that you are strong and amazing every day. It’s okay not to believe it for a while. It’s okay to struggle. I assure you, you are not alone. Every single one of us goes through that at some point or another. I will always be here to listen to your story, and I will not ever judge you, or make you feel ashamed of what you are going through, or see you as anything less than the wonderful person you are. Because I know that at the end of the day, the one who has the courage to speak about it, is the one who is the strongest of them all. ListenersI want you all to remember that you guys are truly amazing. Spending time on here to help others during your free time shows dedication, compassion, and kindness on your part. Thank you so much for doing this. I know that all of our fellow members truly appreciate it! Got a question for me?

★ Hello there. I'm Star! ★ If you're new here, don't be afraid. You can message me. I will always try my best to assist you. I'm a verified listener here, and I've been on 7Cups for over three years. I hope that I can help alleviate your pain, and you'll feel at least a bit better after our chat. We can also have a casual conversation if you want. Sometimes when we feel lonely, a simple chat can do a world of wonders. :)~I accept long-term members. Click here.~
My life hasn't been fantastic. I've experienced myself or been a first-hand witness to many different things in this world — many topics I can relate to and understand. You'll never be judged when talking to me. We all come from different walks of life and cultures. Everyone is dealt a hand when they begin this life. You can't help the cards you get. Some people get better hands, and some get worse hands. But you can only do the best with what you do have. I feel like that is the meaning of real success. <3
Usually, I have my status on offline/busy even if I may be online. Feel free to message me, and I'll get back to you when I can. Hopefully between 1-2 hours if I'm not sleeping or something like that. Hehe. <3★ My Roles ★ ★ Quality Mentor- Here to help you with your listening journey.

I'll always be your cheerleader! Hehe!★ Peer Support- Everyone gets a rough chat every once in a while. Any listener may feel free to contact me to talk and reflect after having one. I shall try my best to assist you and motivate you in your goals. I'm also a sort of Wikipedia for information. First, always try to get information from a mentor, but I can always try to answer whatever questions you may have.
★ Group Moderator- I am a community centered mod for the Relationship Support, Student Support, and Teen Zone Support Communities. I always try to keep these rooms a safe and positive environment for everyone. I also try to make them welcoming for anyone who wants to participate. I would never abuse my moderator powers, but I understand if you dislike mods for that reason. <3★ Support Session Leader- Currently I hold discussions for the Relationship and Student Communities:Student Session- Every Friday from 5 pm to 6 pm EST in the Student Support Room (On Break)Relationship Session- Every Saturday from 9 am to 10 am EST & Every Wednesday from 2 pm ET to 3 pm ET in the Relationship Support Room★ Verified Listener Team Member- I am a verified listener in the community. I can conduct mock chats to test you to become a verified listener too! Feel free to message me if you're interested, and I'll help you out. :)
★ Forum Supporter- I'm currently a supporter for the forums in the Relationship Support Community. Weekly, I post check-in threads to see how everyone is doing for Tuesdays. I also try to incite discussions and thoughts while even replying to posts that don't have replies yet. I'll try my best to support you in the community. :)
Whenever you don't feel like there's nothing left to learn to remember "The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as we continue to live."
