Need to talk to someone?

More Filters

It can sometimes be difficult to find support from family members, friends, or like minded people. While you might have a best friend or a support system and network such as groups on social media, you might want to seek support without any social interaction.

Our listeners provide emotional support through active listening. Active listening helps process your emotional distress. The following page can be filtered to seek listeners who provide long-term help and support. You can also browse listeners according to your preferred language as well as for different topics amongst other filters.

7 Cups is a chat site/app that has different options to find a good listener. You can meet new people and text chat with other individuals going through tough times - you are not alone! Everyone goes through a hard time at some point in their lives and we are here for you. Whether you are facing relationship problems, panic attacks, struggling with substance abuse, loneliness, depression, anxiety, or any other mental health issue, our site/app is a safe space based on confidential, anonymous support.

A good idea is to consider what form of support you would like in the first place - we have plenty of options to explore and one of the best ways is to give them a try to find out what works for you. We understand that different people have different needs and preferences. All these support services are appropriate for different situations.

This page can help you seek a trained active listener to talk to through 1-on-1 conversations. These listeners come from different walks of life and all are ready to offer a compassionate listening ear to people who would like to talk to someone else. You can select their username to view their detailed profile page with their shared bio and other information such as whether they have lived experience of mental health conditions or topics, their reviews, as well as their training and other badges. While our listeners do not provide direct advice, their support can help you vent your feelings and concerns in a safe space and you can work together to figure out healthy coping tools.

Listener conversations can vary in duration according to your listener's and your personal availability. Some listeners have the option to schedule chats with them in advance. You can always browse for listeners and leave them a message so that they can get back to you with their availability.

There are several other ways you can find someone to talk to at 7 Cups. These include the group chats and subcommunities. We are glad you are taking the first step towards support!

Our group chat rooms are online chat rooms that serve as different support groups where you can send text messages 24/7. We are a global community with people from all over the world. Some chat rooms include the Sharing Circle room, which is a non-judgemental safe space based on the traditions of AA and similar support groups. This space can prove helpful if you need a group of people to talk to who can listen and get to know you over a long time. Sharing your feelings and experiences as well as listening to those of others can help feel supported. You can expand your support network and make online supportive friends and connections!

On the other hand, if you would like to interact with people and talk to someone over forums, we have dedicated subcommunities for over 45+ topics covering a wide range of mental illness support topics through various sub-forums. Our subcommunities provide support, awareness, events, as well as opportunities to participate in light-hearted icebreakers.

Apart from the above mentioned mental health services at 7 Cups, we have affordable therapy options allowing you to seek online therapy for mental health problems with an online therapist, licensed psychologist, and other mental health professionals. This support is affordable as compared to other online and offline services or other options like support through insurance companies. Therapists are also available to talk to throughout the week on working days.

While our community can help support you after you have lost someone else to suicide, 7 Cups is not to be used in the state of active/passive suicidal thoughts - for such cases, please visit helpful resources such as the Samaritans or National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. For a complete list of helpful resources, click here.

If you would like to gain further insight and helpful information about different mental health topics, you can visit our Community Questions and Answers pages, or read our Expert Mental Health News and Advice articles. Other main features you can explore include our self-help guides and growth paths based on treatment protocols available for free!

The bottom line is, you are never alone - 7 Cups is a community aiming to provide compassion on a global scale. There are various ways to talk to someone at 7 Cups. These include 1-on-1 conversations based on active listening and support through trained listeners, group chats with support discussions and Sharing Circles, and the subcommunity forums. Other features that you may find helpful include the growth paths, community questions and answers, as well as expert advice sections.

Have you heard of the mammalian dive reflex? Try leaning over a sink or surface and then placing cold water, ice or a cold pack over the temples, eyes and upper nose region for ~30 seconds. This divelike stance then triggers a reflex that occurs in nature when mammals submerge in cold water. Think back to the last time you dove into a cold pool at the start of summer you may recall the sensation of slowly cutting through the water with your arms, and a feeling of slowed time as you drifted up toward the surface. As we dive face first into cold water, our heart rate slows and our breathing regulates as the body prepares to conserve energy for survival. We have engaged our parasympathetic nervous system and experience a calming effect. So next time you feel highly activated, distressed, upset, angry think T for temperature and try running cold water on your forearms, taking a hot or cold shower, chewing on ice or just holding an ice cube in your hand. When we briefly change our temperature, we ground ourselves.I  Intense exercise. brief bursts of exercise can be helpful in the grounding process. Think of this process as using up some of the energy that may be fueling high-energy emotions like anger or anxiety. When in a low-energy state (e.g. feeling, down, depressed, lethargic) getting the heart rate up will invigorate the individual. important to note that exercise can be a highly sensitive issue for those who struggle with eating disorders. If youre at a place in your treatment where you need to limit exercise, it would make more sense to try the T or P and P skills.P Paced breathing allows us to activate our parasympathetic nervous system as we regulate and slow our breath. With paced breathing we breathe deeply into our lungs and diaphragm. As we slow the pace of our in-breaths and out-breaths, we may achieve 5-6 thoughtful breaths per minute. Some people refer to deep breathing as having a pill in your pocket. In other words, breathing is a highly accessible skill available to you at all times no matter where you are and one that can be very effective to calm and steady you when emotion is riding high.P Progressive Muscle Relaxation is paired with paced breathing. With paced breathing we tense and relax muscle groups throughout the body to promote a relaxing effect. If you are feeling extreme emotion, you may try mindfully tensing all of your muscle groups at once and then dropping your weight back into the ground or into your chair. As you travel from head to toe engaging all of your muscle groups or one area at a time, pay close attention to the sensationshttps://columbuspark.com/2018/04/23/easily-accessible-effective-tip-distress-tolerance-skills/great visuals that help with breathing during panic attacks https://dailyburn.com/life/lifestyle/stressed-gifs-breathing-exercises/7cups discussion on dealing with panic attacks  https://bit.ly/2MomF978 hour talk down with gentle rain sounds  https://youtu.be/4i53B-y_i2oTechniques and tips therapists use to help with intrusive thoughts (including memories)Allow the thought to happen  Intrusive thoughts become more distressing the more we try to make them stop. The act of trying to stop them actually makes them more readily available in our brains and thus they are likely to return. Allowing the thought to happen allows it to run its course and as distressing as it may be it will come and it will go. Using self-talk to coach your way through the process is key. "Here is the thought im not going to focus on it, im going to let it pass." This can help that thought carry less weight.Find yourself a mantra  This can be a word or a phrase it doesn't matter what it is as long as it resonates with you. When you start to feel/hear that onset of intrusive thoughts repeat it to yourself in your head. The idea is to redirect from those negative thoughts by putting something positive and repetitive on top directing your attention.Remind yourself that they are just thoughts  Thoughts themselves don't have any power. By remembering that a thought itself cannot hurt you, you are more likely to let the thought exist without altering your behavior. Intrusive thoughts are distressing because you believe them. Remember, just because you think it, doesn't mean it's true. It's totally natural to have these kinds of thoughts, but remember that these thoughts come from the past and have yet to prove that they represent the truth today we need evidence before we believe what other people tell us and we should do the same with our thoughts.Imagine that the intrusive thought is a thing or person or animal  It can be anything a bird or insect (that you can visualize swatting away or spraying!) a grey cloud or maybe a tiny cartoon character (and you can visualize the thought from the cartoon character in a cartoon bubble) Perhaps it's a 5 year old kid in the backseat nagging for your attention or a little green blob or a little Donald Trump having a tantrum you can try different things even if it's silly separating yourself from it can be incredibly powerful.Say thanks  Can you imagine how different it might be if you say "Yes that's nice - but I'm not interested in that now" vs "Go away I'm so sick of you!"  Pretty different huh? So "talk" to the thoughts: 'I see you thought, you are OK, I love you, but I'm not listening to you." This technique shows both self-love and compassion for the way your brain works. Love and compassion can be critical to mitigating tough feelings of distress.Refocus  Perhaps a crossword or something to fidget with or even just something that smells nice! Try to engage mentally in something else intrusive thoughts often come to us when our brains are quiet, or when they are over-taxed and stressed. When there is nothing going on or too much going on the intrusive thoughts are triggered. By finding an activity that fully engulfs our concentration, the thoughts often move to the background. Music, movies, a conversation with someone, a sport, hobby, or activity can engage our brain in something else. Refocusing can be quite calming and even potentially healing.Grounding and mindfulness exercises  After acknowledging the thought's presence, spend 5 minutes noticing things in the room. By exploring things around the room like you've never seen them before, describing their color, texture, shadows exc. you are keeping your mind in the present moment and making it more difficult to get carried away by the intrusive thought. Anytime you notice the thought has taken you away, simply return to noticing the room. sight sound taste touch the more senses the better.Be kind to yourself - It does take time  forgive yourself for having intrusive thoughts and for not being able to get rid of them. If anything, that fuels fear and anxiety, and makes everything worse. The sooner we can accept that that's how your brain is wired for now, the faster you can work on building more grounded wisdom.7cups discussion on Reframing negative thoughts  https://bit.ly/2OnBaxv                                       30 grounding techniques to quiet the mind  https://www.healthline.com/health/grounding-techniques7cups discussion on managing negative internal dialogue  https://bit.ly/2HOwCLl                          PTSD nightmares why they exist and the best treatments https://www.verywellhealth.com/prazosin-treats-nightmares-in-ptsd-3015222https://youtu.be/ySL3NllIhfAalways on 24/7 youtube livestreams of relaxing sounds   https://youtu.be/63GF7qbr34U * https://youtu.be/4qtD8RmvWn0There has always been a war between “true” and “false” speech, with each side favoring its own flavor and screaming that the other side is lying. Maybe they are. Maybe they’re not. Maybe what appeared to be false once is now true, or the other way around. Do we know, today, the “truth”? Some believe they do with such absolute certainty that they’re prepared to destroy anyone who disagrees, who questions them, who challenges their orthodoxy... But had we fixed a point in time a century ago, when we were so enlightened, so certain that what we knew at that moment in time was so correct that we need never again argue or disagree, everything we’ve learned in the past hundred years might never have happened. The arrogance of believing that today, that at this moment in time, we're so perfectly correct in our beliefs that we can silence all disagreement, prevent any heretic from calling our gods false, is absurd. It's not that people haven't believed they were finally so enlightened that there couldn't possibly be any errors in their judgments, anything new to learn, any mistakes to correct. People have always believed that. And they've always been wrong. Thats why we still need heretics, not because they're necessarily right but because they aren't necessarily wrong.   - Scott Greenfield  When Ira Glasser Ran The ACLU   After being hurt, we often search for answers and try to rationalise what happened, because we're trying to protect ourselves by making sure it doesn't happen again. The truth is: we might never be able to understand what makes a person hurt others remorselessly. It doesn't seem fair or right. It certainly doesn't make us feel safe about the other people we meet and interact with.  Still, your ability to heal and move on doesn't depend on someone else's behaviour or excuses. They do not have that much power, to permanently hold you back from learning to love and respect yourself. We cannot control the actions of other people, but we can learn to heal without needing the person who hurt us to be a part of the process. We don't need someone else's validation to move on and make everything okay. It might seem unfair to allow ourselves to carry on with life when the person who hurt us has not expressed any remorse about it or tried to make it up to you. It can be difficult to let go of these experiences, after all the pain they have caused. But you deserve to live a life of dignity and joy. You deserve to decide for yourself what your next step is going to be. You deserve to live free from the things other people have done.  We may never get answers or closure. For a long time, that might really ache, and that's okay. But we do what we can with what we have ❤️ The steps we take don't have to be big, as long as they take us in the right direction ❤️   - hopebeyondpain  https://bit.ly/3qFpPpv

   Please book me here:                                             “Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.” ~Oprah Winfrey “Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you! Shout loud, ‘I am lucky to be what I am!...’”  ~Dr. Seuss “You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.”“The person in life that you will always be with the most, is yourself. Because even when you are with others, you are still with yourself, too! When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself, laying in bed at night you are with yourself, walking down the street in the sunlight you are with yourself. What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is yourself, and it's your responsibility to be that person you want to be with. I know I want to spend my life with a person who knows how to let things go, who's not full of hate, who's able to smile and be carefree. So that's who I have to be.”The Crimson Winter ~PBThe soft flakes that bow down Onto the shoulder that humbly awaits And the eyes that cease to see the light The ears that could never hear its shin shin Still- The snow so pristinely white, adorned in its crimson shade falls onto all The cold and the warmth jiggles down, like the Christmas jingle bells! The tweeting light illuminating even the brightest eyes of Keller. The hands that talk in braille, and dancing fingers painting fragile emotions- The winter brings us together, its virgin tranquility binding us all! Lethal the cold, as many say, and the penetrating darkness that follows. Humanly clan so insanely divided the crimsoned snow versus the massacre’s blood. Still- The snow so unified All from heaven fall onto the Earth erasing the enigma that eclipses love. The snowy bed onto which every finger Like the dancing flames in ecstasy!

Welcome to my profile! I have been a Listener since June 2016. It has been a pleasure being able to support as many individuals as I have on this website. If you have the chance to get into a conversation with me, I try to establish time boundaries and personal boundaries. Our chats will always be based on what you want to talk about, excluding topics of sex, active suicidal ideation, or homicidal ideas. Due to site limitations, if you are in danger to yourself or others, I cannot continue to talk to you but I can link you to the proper resource. I am in my late twenties and I am an actual psych worker. I am also studying to be an actual licensed mental health therapist. Due to my limited availabilities, I am not able to have scheduled conversations nor be immediately available to those who need my support. I recommend if you need immediate replies or have an emergent issue, to discover a listener who is online by utilizing our search system. By the way, my favorite color is Blue. What's yours?
