Hello! I chose the picture of an apple because it represents to me growth and potential. The apple can grow to become the best apple it can be. My strengths lie in relationship/friendship problems and infidelity issues.
I'm a 28 year old who has always been told I'm a good listener and person to come to. People have come to me years after talking to them because they remembered I was someone to confide in. I like to think of myself as open minded, non judgmental, and compassionate. I try really hard to give unbiased, but honest advice while still being on your side. I love to help people and sometimes I say things that people need to hear even if they don't want to. My approach is supportive, yet helpful rather than tough love because I've always liked advice most when it was honest coming from a person who cared about my well being enough to be honest.
Activities/Positions I am involved in include: Chatroom Mentor, Forum Mentor, Quality Ambassador, Peer Support, Chat Support help, Adult/Teen Listener, Teen Chatroom Mentor, Group Mod, Safety Patrol Team.
I am taking a break from live chats, so I may not be the listener for you right now! But we have many who are available, so I hope one of them could be of more assistance :)
Hey there :) It's nice to meet you, you can call me Taran!
I love listening to people and to support people with anything going on in their life. I recieved a BA in psychology, and I hope to continue with school/a career in mental health :) Thank you so much for making it this far, I'm glad you're here!
Ratings and Reviews are really appreciated, if you can! :) They're totally anonymous, posted a few days later (after being reviewed by an admin) so there's no way to see who says what, be as honest as you like! And don't forget, you can always nominate listeners for badges if you think they were helpful in a certain area :)
Hello! I'm glad you are hereI'm Ame, 20, Indonesia (GMT+7)I am trained active listener, and I'm here to listen and support you with whatever you are going through.We all deserve to be happy, including you, and helping others makes me happy. I would love to listening to you! Please don't hesitate to send me a message and I will reply as soon as possible. Have a good life! YOU ARE AWESOMEQUOTE:"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
*Not taking new chats at the moment due to time constraints!**Life is a journey that everyone goes through. Think of it as a story told by you. 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 struggles 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 the strong and amazing person you are. 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 bravest 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? Feel free to send me a message at any time and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

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.

**ON STUDY BREAK**
I will no longer be active on the site (not taking chats), however I will still respond to messages ^_^
Hey, I'm Ary.
A-levels student, feeling my way to my place in the world. When I'm alone, I like to settle in a couch and listen to soundtracks, especially Studio Ghibli's. I have way too many interests to possibly keep up with (gaming, knitting, reading, drawing etc. etc. ) but meh, I like it that way.
For the most part of my teenhood I was greatly affected by depression (dysthymia) and addiction. My friends are who kept me afloat, and I hope I can be one to you. There's still so much more for me to learn about listening, and I do have problems of my own, but I'll try my best to help you in any way I can I think everyone needs and deserves to be loved and heard <3

Hi there! Welcome to 7 Cups. I am a trained Active Listener, a Christian and a college student who has most likely been through anything you can think of.
I will/can absolutely listen to:
Depression/blues/hormones issues, including bipolar
Christian Life Issues (not on the formal list, but I’m happy to help)
Chronic Pain (we can talk through acute pain/random aches too, but I cannot guarantee success)
Grief (as long as you haven’t ended the life of an animal through euthanasia or harmed/killed the person you miss)
Loneliness (bored/lonely banter is a specialty)
I can listen to these, but can’t guarantee success:
Relationship Stress, including Breakups
Healthy Living (including Eating Disorders and Exercise Motivation)
Please do NOT approach me about these unless you want to feel sorely disappointed:
Attention span issues
Parenting (including perinatal issues)
No weekday/super-early/super-late contact please. Due to family responsibilities and selfcare duties, I am only available on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, American CST time. This includes Automatic Welcome responses and “emergencies.” If you need support Monday through Friday and in the morning or evening, either Browse Listeners, contact a loved one, utilize a crisis resource or go to the hospital .
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.
