Green: I am available and currently taking chats Orange: I am online but I may be focusing my attention on other things and replies may be slower Red: I am offline or am unable to take chats at the momentAt this time I am only accepting long term members. If your intention is to want long term support, I am always open to supporting you through any struggle you are going through. If you are looking for long term, let me know in the message you leave and we can work on a plan as to what to work on. I am just one message away.Everyone has a purpose and you may not know yours yet, and that’s alright. For a lot of people it can be really difficult to find a purpose, but don’t give up on what you want to have or want to be later because of what is happening now. You have a real chance at success as long as you just try!!!A little about my listening style…I am always here for you when I am around, and no that does not mean I am always online as I have my limits but I don’t give up on my members. I mainly take long term members but I am open to setting up times to talk for both long term and short term support. My main topics are ADHD, depression, self-harm recovery, personality disorders, and anxiety but I am open to being there for you for other topics, but I do not have as much knowledge on other topics.
I am NOT a crisis resource, I will not turn you away for self-harm as long as it is past and you are not actively in crisis. In crisis would mean that you are actively harming yourself in any way or have an intention to do so or if you are currently at risk of harm from another person. Whether you are in a good mood or maybe not feeling so great, I am here to listen, and I can deal with anger and negative emotions just please remain respectful towards me and towards yourself during our chat so that I can best help. I am open to hearing your rants or being a sounding board and as long as you are not attacking me or anyone else. I will not get mad if you need to curse in my PMs to express those emotions and I can always be that safe place that you are able to come whenever you may need it. A little about me…My name is Isabelle and I am a teen listener. I really enjoy Psychology and I’m not exactly sure what field I want to branch out to at this time, but I plan on majoring in Psychology and finding a way to make a difference in the world for all of the people that are struggling with mental illnesses. I am currently in my last year of school before going into college/university. This being said, things do get crazy so I am not here all the time and I may not be able to respond immediately, but I try to get back with you as soon as I am able. I have gone through my share of struggling throughout my life including struggling with depression, self-harm, ADHD, and many other things and I found my recovery here through listening and helping others. I understand the struggle of not having others understand and even professionals not quite getting the point and that is why I try to be here for each and every one of you as long as possible.
UNFORTUNATELY I AM CURRENTLY NO LONGER ABLE TO ACCEPT NEW MEMBERS.
Hi, you! :)
Yes, you! Welcome to 7cups of tea and my profile! I am very glad that you are here! :) That's awesome!
In case you're wondering whether the two of us would be a good match, I want to share a few things about me.
I love helping others, I am a dog person, I love reading and art and long walks, and big cities, and getting immersed in a good movie or tv show. I have been through my fair share of things, and supported people around me with the issues they were facing.
I believe that every issue you are dealing with, no matter how big or small you may perceive it, is worth talking about and that's why it's so awesome that you're here right now. I also believe in the power of humor, at the same time I know it's not everyone's cup of tea ;) and that some topics are not funny whatsoever. I am not a professional psychologist, but over time on here I have learned my bits and pieces about active listening and offering emotional support, which I believe if done well, can go a long way. And offering emotional support through active listening is what I will try my best to do during our chats. It may not solve any issues you are facing, but maybe it will take the weight off your shoulders and make you feel less alone with it.
I am happy to listen about pretty much anything and everything! :) Naturally though, I am stronger/more experienced with some topics than others. My listening strengths lie in LGBTQ+, relationships (including yourself, your partner, friendships and families!), grief, work, struggling with beliefs and belonging, being a TCK, TCI, CCK, support in situations of being discriminated, and PMS/PMDD.
Currently my schedule is busy, so I currently take chats one person at a time, an hour each, and regulars weekly.
I am looking forward to meeting you and listening to you! :)Make sure to meet my awesome listener twins

Hi my name is Pam.
Adult and Teen Listener
I am a long term listener and a verfied listener on 7 cups.
I am currently taking chats in the following areas.
I do not take chats in any sexual nature. You may browse listener page and type in the keywork of the topic and it will give a list of listeners who will handle those chats.
I am here for you when you have no where to turn.
Hello! My name is Stitch, experiment 626! I have been a listener on 7cups since 2014 and it has been a pleasure to support people all over the world who have come to me with various struggles or just needing someone to hear them out. I take a non-judgmental stance in all of my conversations and provide the best support I can. That being said, support does not mean advice. If you are looking for advice, I can not give you that, I can only help you figure out what is best for you. I do not know 100% of your situation and advice from someone who doesn’t know your environment, background, etc. can unintentionally lead to more harm than good.
I am in my late 20s, but most people think I am much younger and can connect with people ranging from teens to late 20s best. I recently graduated with my Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and a minor in applied behavioral science and will begin working as a behavior skills therapist for children on the autism spectrum.
People find that I am very compassionate and I care a great deal about the members I support. Areas that I have most experience with are related to mental health including:
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Borderline Personality Disorder
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
And others.Currently I’m not in any major leadership roles but I have been a community mentor leader for the BPD subcommunity, I also have been forum mentor, chatroom mentor, group mod, and support session leader for various topics.
If I don’t respond right away it’s not that I am ignoring you, sometimes I have to take some time for self-care, especially as I jump back into things.
Nice to meet you! I am Painting, a trained active listener.I am here to listen to what is on your mind and do my best to help you.I have been dealing with depression for a long time, so I can relate to depressed people and can understand how much depression can affect one or more aspects of our lives.Other subjects I can relate to are: anxiety, social anxiety, bullying, self harm and domestic violence, but my chats are not limited to these topics.
Suffering is the only thing that matters in the world. I want to do everything I can to reduce the suffering in the world and increase the thriving. And what I can do is listen. It's a good thing, cuz I sure can't cook.
I'm male, 52, divorced. My only child, Jennifer, is finishing up her last semester of a computer science degree at uni. When Jen's mom and I were young, we went to couples counseling A LOT, and we learned how to listen. I found that I enjoyed it, and I'm actually pretty good at it, and I've been able to help a lot of people feel better just by listening. Over the years, I've learned a few other useful skills and interpersonal techniques, such as "non-violent communication"; and I've stumbled upon quite a few others that probably have names out there somewhere. I give them my own names like "respectful conflict resolution", "you're allowed to have feelings", and "let's stop and figure out what we're really talking about."
I can usually help with grief of all kinds, self-hatred, fear of burning in Hell (yes, people do fear it), relationships of all kinds: romantic, platonic, family, work, etc.
The foundation of it all is compassion: a concern for the suffering of others. And I have loads of that.
Hi everyone :) My name is Maddie. I love being a 7 cups listener and being able to help others every day! If you ever are having a hard day or just need to chat feel free to message me! I would love hearing from you.
Hello thank for reading my profile. I can say I am here to listen if you don't feel to talk any specific. Few topic I am not so polished but I can give a try. Not looking for adult talk or fun so please don't waste your or mine time.
I know what it's like to not have someone around to listen, so let me be there for you! Anyone can feel free to message me any time and I will always lend a friendly ear (and shoulder). Need to vent - be my guest! I promise not to judge and to keep everything we talk about confidential. I do deal with anxiety, so I might be of help to anyone who also has it - talking about it can sometimes help. If I'm not online when messaged, I promise I will get back to you as soon as I can.
As for a bit about me, I'm a 33 year old female, but often feel older than my age. Age is not an issue though if you want to talk. I can have a weird sense of humor for those who need a laugh, but I have no problems keeping a conversation on the serious side if needed.
Don't be fearful of the badges - I took some in things that even don't apply to me to help others, especially people I know in my day-to-day life. I am curious by nature as well, and love to learn new things. It's a weird obsession of mine to learn as much as possible.
Not accepting New Chats at this time! Please feel free to reach out to another one of our great Listeners for support. YOU ARE IMPORTANT!!!*Please Note that I have limited availability at this time but please feel free to reach out and I will be happy to set up a time a time for us to chat."No Act of KINDNESS, no matter how small is ever wasted"Hello, I am so glad that you have found me and I want to be here and help you with whatever struggle you are going through. I can't solve your problems, but I can offer a safe place for you to open up and talk about what is going on. I don't have set available days or times when I am online but most likely to be found in the evening est. If you want to chat and I am not online please feel free to leave me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I would greatly appreciate it if you would leave a review after a chat as it helps me as a listener learn and grow. If you are looking for other listeners you can also reach out to My very awesome Listener Twins: musicalMagic, and TsukinoTheHag . Without them I wouldn't have gotten this far in my journey.
