I joined 7cups because I want to reach out my hand to those of you who are hurt and struggling, lost, hopeless, depressed, lonely and in need of a listening ear, feel free to reach me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Each one of you is special, unique, a warrior in the making, someone with incredible self-worth and strength. I believe that with faith, we can achieve anything.You have the willpower to change your life. Just Look inside you.Just like you, I have had my fair shares of struggles in life. My mental health has been up and down for years but I was blessed to find ways to help myself and get better. I still have not figured it out yet and there are days where depression hits me hard but I know that as long as I don't lose hope and I keep putting effort into myself, it would be okay. Throughout my education, and due to my main interest in mental health, as well as my own experiences, I have gained experience in the following:-Anxiety
-Borderline Personality Disorder
-Child abuse and incest
-Coping Skills *
-Domestic Violence Violence
-Dissociative Identity Disorder
-Sleep and insomnia
-Trauma and PTSD*Various coping skills, related to Trauma, Anxiety, Depression, Suicidal thoughts, Self-harm, OCDHow I do my chats: I will treat you with respect and kindness. I will not judge you or give you any advice but I will listen to you and provide you with a safe space to talk.
My chats are usually 60 minutes long but the time can be adjusted as needed.* Please note that I do not and will not take any chats of sexual nature. Kindly respect that. *Inner peace beings the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions. - Pema ChodronIn lightness or in the dark, I am here for you. We are here together.
Hi! if you need someone to talk to, I am here to listen and to support you. I am a Verified Active Listener, I enjoy giving emotional support to those who are going through hard/tough times. I receive chats on issues such as Trauma, Depression, Lonliness, Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Disability, Emotional Abuse.
If I am online then please feel free to start a chat, (a chat will normally last for one hour). If I am offline then send me a message and we can set up a time to connect. Or we can message one another offline if that would be easier for you.
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 issues 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 that strong and amazing person. 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 strongest 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?

Hello and welcome to my profile. I am the Support Team Mentor for the Trauma Community, so if you have any questions about Trauma or want to chat about Trauma, feel free to PM me.My Trauma Discussions:
Tuesday 6pm ET Open Chat
Saturday 3pm ET Guided DiscussionInformation for Members:
My history is in sexual child abuse, depression, and various other anxiety problems. I've also dealt with resolving family, relationship, and financial problems, mostly as a fallout of the abuse I suffered. Being a tough subject, no chat topics are off limits to me, but if you are trying to use 7cups as a dating site, I don't have time for you. I am here to help trauma survivors and others who need emotional support, and I request that you respect that. I am planning to become a therapist for CSA survivors, and so listening here on 7cups to my fellow survivors is my first step on that road. If I am set to online, feel free to message. If I am set to busy, I am most likely already chatting with someone and will either message you after I'm finished or schedule another time with you. If I am offline, then I am either doing Trauma Community business and may schedule a time for us to talk, or I am not on my computer and will schedule with you when I can. If you see I am offline but we set up that time/day to talk please message me anyway. Setting myself to online means I'll get new requests so if I'm offline I am always open to people I have already spoken to, I just can't accept new chats.
I check 7cups almost every day so I should get back to you within 24 hours to set up a time to talk. Every time one of us breaks the silence, we are winning against our perpetrators. Thank you for reaching out; You are stronger than you know.Information for Listeners:

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.
Hey there lovely! My name is Brooke and I’m here to help you through your rough time! I specialize in trauma, anxiety and disability chats!! In my free time I am usually on here, writing, baking or playing video games but most of the time you can find a makeup brush in my hand! I’m super excited for you to reach out and if I am offline feel free to message me to set up a time to meet up!
Community roles!!!im a Doorkeeper!Forum supporter for TSEBI and trauma!And global mod!
I'm unable to take any chats. I'm sorry. If you still desire support for Trauma/PTSD/Dissociation, please post in the Traumatic Experiences Community Forum. You can tag me in your post. I spend most of my support time in the forums due to my time limitations of committing to long-term chats. Time Zone Converter - Eastern Time is New York time. For scheduled members, chats with me last 45 minutes once per week. My days of availability are Thursday and Sundays with rare exception. I take off Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday most weeks for personal self-care. My primary focus with here at 7 Cups is trauma, PTSD and dissociation (DID) recovery and mental health internships. I am a Christian and that gives me strength. If you are wanting faith based support, please let me know. I know that for some individuals, Christians have been very hurtful. If you are not a Christian, I'm not here to judge or impose my spiritual beliefs - I'm here to listen. I will not talk to you about God unless you ask to talk about faith. I do not take theological chats.
