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.
I AM NOT ONLINE ON SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYSHello, I’m Ami, a verified listener on 7cups.
My support will be confidential, without any judgement. There are no topics which make me feel uncomfortable and I will do everything I can to make you feel welcome, safe and understood.
My listening times are Monday to Friday 2 to 4 pm edt , usually my listening time will be 45 to 60 min. once a week or 2 x 30 min. twice a week.
Apart from my work as listener I am actively supporting the mindfulness communitySome things about me:
Exercising, yoga and meditation, nature walks, cooking are some of the activities I like a lot, most of all humour – having a good laugh.
My approach to life is holistic, balance of mind, body and spirit as well as living in harmony with nature are very important to me.
I had many challenges in my life and learned to cope and overcome them and would be glad to support you to achieve the same. Volunteering here on 7 cups means a lot to be, I am very passionate about helping others.
I want to acknowledge the courage that it takes to reach out, this is not easy, but you made the first step. Please feel free to message me any time, I promise I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Activity Scheduling Activities can be connected to the way you feel. If you track feelings of depression, you may discover that when you are depressed you are more passive and less active. Following the observation that depressed people tend to stop doing pleasurable activities, depression treatments often emphasize increasing the weekly number of pleasurable activities. Additional ways to improve mood:
Surround yourself with people who have a positive impact on you
Invest in friendships and have a “go to” person that you can trustBecome more forgiving - forgive yourself and forgive others
Build on areas of strength and note evidence for new beliefs that replace old negative beliefs (praise yourself for things you accomplish)Keep a gratitude journal

Understanding what depression is begins the journey toward recovering from depression. You may not realize that depression symptoms are not just emotional. Depression is much more than a low mood, feeling sad, and being irritable. There are cognitive (e.g., self-criticism and hopeless thoughts), behavioral (e.g., isolating from others and having difficulty ’getting started’ with activities), and physical (e.g., sleep problems and change in appetite) symptoms as well. The mind and body are very much connected, and the way that depression affects someone demonstrates that strong connection. Learn more about what depression is by reading the Depression Guide on 7 Cups of Tea’s website. You can also talk to someone about your experience of depression by requesting to chat with one of our listeners.Millions of people suffer from depression everyday?
