Coming, going, the waterbirds
don't leave a trace, don't follow a path.
I'm Charlie and I'm trained, verified and experienced as an active listener for both adults and teens. I like to support people who are struggling with something. Also people who aren't struggling with anything. And people who aren't sure whether they're struggling with anything or not.
The poem is said to be by Eihei Dōgen, a Japanese poet who wrote it around eight hundred years ago. I don't know why I like it. I just do. My photo is the moon shining on the sea. There's some darkness and some clouds there but the light of the moon shines on everything. I like this too.
If I'm online, please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline or busy, please feel free to send me a message. No topic of conversation is off-limits for me, not even difficult and distressing topics.
Thank you for reading my profile. I'm glad you are here!In an emergency or a crisis: If you are in an emergency or a crisis—for example, if you are at immediate risk of suicide or other serious harm—7 Cups is not the right place, because we cannot deal with emergencies or provide crisis counselling. Click here for information about getting help: Get emergency or crisis support
Listener support: I'm happy to support other listeners with issues related to listening, although I don't have any official role. Please do not message me from a listener account to chat about personal issues. Use a member account for that. To understand why, see: Listener and Member Roles
Schedule: I don't have a fixed schedule. I'm online some weekdays between about 4:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. US Eastern Time. In the UK this is 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. On other days and at weekends I'm often online too, but at times that are not predictable. If you message me or tag me in a forum I'm usually able to respond within a day or two.
Miscellaneous resources: For some other resources, mainly for listeners, see my unofficial companion site: The 8th Cup
Long term support: I don't make any formal arrangements for long term support, but I am happy to chat regularly over an extended period when that's helpful.

Wuhan Warriers: I'm happy to support anyone in quarantine anywhere. See: Wuhan Warriers
