~~~~I currently have limited availability, but I will respond to requests as able! ~~~~ Hello! I am a 25 year old healthcare worker who has dealt with a variety of mental health issues (depression, anxiety, insomnia, and an eating disorder). I also have an extensive trauma background that provides me a unique perspective. I have learned to manage my conditions through therapy, medication, exercise, and healthy friendships. I'd love to chat with you about anything you'd like to share! Things I do on 7 Cups: Chatrooom Mentor -- Quality Mentor -- Teen Quality Mentor -- Verified Listener Team -- Peer Support My listener twins are @WalrusWasPaul and @SouthernFlame :) And yes, my profile picture is me!

Hello my name is Melissa, im not going to put a lot of stuff saying why you should talk to me as i can't make you talk. I use 7 cups as well for my own problems but we are a safe community. If you need to talk i am here xxx
Greetings! Welcome to my 7 Cups profile. I am a trained listener and I am here to help you with what you're struggling with. Let me get to know you & help me help you. Remember that you're not alone; I am with you on this.
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. -Roald Dahl 🌸
To know more about me: I enjoy reading books, writing my own thoughts, listening to music, and solving puzzles. I prefer sunrise over sunset as it manifests new beginnings.
Be well and find light in the dark. ✨
**Please read about the areas i focus on before contacting me**
Hi there. I am dual trained as a midwife and psychologist. My working life involves support adolescents and young women through pregnancy, birth, miscarriage and still birth.
Online, I have experience in supporting adolescents and young women with a whole range of issues. My expertise is in supporting them through pregnancy related issues. This could be miscarriage and pregnancy loss, depression and issues during pregnancy, concerns around birth, issues relating to previous trauma and abuse and how this affects giving birth, post natal depression, and abortion.*
***Please note that I do not take requests/give advice about sexual and relationship issues***
In the past I have also supported adolescents and women with depression, eating disorders, PTSD and self harm.
I hope to bring a calming, gentle and reflective approach to conversations.
I come to 7 cups of tea as someone with knowledge of both sides of the healing process. I am very aware that when we are in need of support it is often outside of 'office hours'. I completed training in psychiatry, psychology and education and have experience working in a wide variety of therapeutic contexts.
While I am happy to listen to all problems. My areas of specialist knowledge are:
* pregnancy related issues: pre and post natal depression, depression following miscarriage or still birth
* traumatic experiences: abuse, childhood abuse, miscarriage
* self-harm, past history of suicide
* eating disorders: binge eating, bulimia, anorexia
*long-term psychiatric issues: e.g. clinical depression, PTSD
This story reflects my philosophy on the purpose of my life and of life in general:
THE STARFISH STORY (adapted from Loren Eiseley)
A young girl was walking along a beach upon which thousands of starfish had been washed up during a terrible storm. Every so often she would pick up a starfish, and throw it back into the ocean.
She had been doing this for some time when an old man approached her and said, “Little girl, why are you doing this? Look at this beach! You can’t save all these starfish. You can’t begin to make a difference!”
The girl seemed crushed, suddenly deflated. But after a few moments, she bent down, picked up another starfish, and hurled it as far as she could into the ocean. Then she looked up at the man and replied,
“Well, I made a difference to that one!”
The old man looked at the girl inquisitively and thought about what she had said. Inspired, he joined the little girl in throwing starfish back into the sea. Soon others joined, and all the starfish were saved.
Hello! I'm glad you are here

"The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around – and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness." — By Daniell Koepke

Hi :) Welcome to 7cups. I'm glad you've found me here. I like reading and I also write stories. It helps me to feel free.. I'm an adolescent who is also dealing with problems. I really want to help others. Trust me, I know how it feels when you think you have nobody and that nobody understands you. It's not true. There is always someone who understands and who cares.
