Hello! I'm glad you've found me here on 7 cups of tea. I hope that you will sit back, relax, visit one of our chat rooms, guided discussions, post on our forums or connect with me or another listener.
Note: please complete the feed back form in entirety. I grow as a listener based on feedback from the people I listen to. I would like it very much if you would not only leave ratings, but also leave written comments for me.
My roles in the 7 cups community: Welcome team, Appreciation Team, Forum Mentor, Verified Listener Team, peer support, group moderator
I am a 37 year old single female. I have struggled with depression and anxiety most of my life. I have also struggled with addiction, self harm, bulimia, have lost my sweet daughter Who passed away at 16 months. I have multiple chronic illnesses and all of these things have taught me that we only have so much time on earth and I want to make the best of it. I've definitely been through my fair share of heart ache and pain and I can empathize with where you are coming from.
I enjoy writing, painting and horseback riding in my spare time. I'm an avid animal lover. I have 1 dog, 2 birds, 5 fish tanks and 2 horses. My horses names are Stardust and Starlight. They are both rescues. My dog is a certified service dog and a certified search and rescue dog. He is my companion and best friend. My family has just purchased a ranch where we will be retraining abused and neglected horses.
I also enjoy learning new languages and speak 7 languages fluently.

Hello my name is Anna and I am a twenty-two year old biology healthcare and neuroscience student in Wisconsin. I am getting my degree in genetic counseling. I have always been a listener to those in need and I hope to continue to be so for the rest of my life. I have experience with anxiety and depression as well as other mental illnesses. In addition I am a trained sexual assault victim advocate and human trafficking advocate. I know first hand what it's like to live with anxiety and panic attacks. I know life isn't always easy and I want to be there to walk in your shoes if even for a short time. You'll never walk alone.

Hi! I'm glad you found me here on seven cups of tea. Please feel free to message me as I love to help people. My main reason for being a listener is because I want to help people with their struggles and I don't want them to feel the same way I did. I enjoy dance, photography, and hanging out with family and friends. You can always message me to have a casual conversation too :)
Well, hello there! :) I am glad that you came to 7 Cups of Tea for support and that you have found my profile.
I have a background in Substance Abuse/Mental Health Counseling. My story is a long a drawn out one, but I feel that my personal experiences, paired with my educational/professional background could potentially make me a decent resources and sounding board. Even if you don't need a 1-on-1 session, I am often in the LGBTQ+ Support Room, feel free to stop by and say, "Hi".
I enjoy reading, getting lost, yelling in the middle of the woods, most things water related, and films.
I have also posted a Listener AMA in the Forums. I am an open book...you can find that here...
Make good choices, don't do anything that I wouldn't, and love each other! :D
Hiya my lovelies! Call me Cat, I'm glad you've found me on 7 Cups of Tea!
I'm Cat, a trained active listener and I like to support people suffering with anxiety, breakups, bullying, depression, eating disorders, managing emotions, panic attacks, self-harm, work stress and more. I've overcome a lot in life - so I'm very understanding of others and I know how it feels to have just somebody who will listen, understand and talk through it with you.
Also, as well as talking - feel free to message me to talk about the following areas in which I have extended knowledge:
Feel free to message me at this point rather than reading on as this next bit is quite long haha, apologies! But it's there for those who want to read on.
Also, I am happy to listen to any of you other listeners here on 7 Cups of Tea and I’d be more than happy to support any of you who for example may be struggling personally or if you've had a difficult chat (or even whilst you’re in a chat if it’s difficult, I am more than happy to support you through it) – I am a Peer Support and I'm always happy to speak to new people and build relationships with fellow listeners so please do drop me a message sometime if you’re a listener reading this! I am a Verified Listener and can verify other listeners on 7 Cups of Tea, and I aim to put listeners at ease as much as possible during the verification process and I'm more than happy to arrange times for mock chats and I can go over anything you aren't sure of or any questions you might have, so drop me a PM if you'd like me to verify you and I'd be more than happy to help you out!
Back to everyone else reading this, I would like to help by listening to you whenever you need to talk to somebody. I'm a very relaxed listener and I aim to make sure you feel comfortable and at ease when talking to me - you don't have to feel rushed or under pressure, I'm proud of you for having the courage to come to 7 Cups of Tea (and I promise you I try to make you feel as if you aren't talking to a machine!) and you can tell me as much or as little as you like – I really don’t mind and I won’t pressure you for any information or try and make you talk about things which you wouldn't like to talk about.
Feel free to ask me questions, too – although please remember that we cannot give specific advice on 7 Cups of Tea as this can often make situations worse, and we wouldn't want to do that for anyone.
I also can do chats in more than one language, so don't worry if English isn't your first language - we can always try talking in your native language instead providing it's one of the languages which you'll find listed further down in my profile.
I know it can be nerve-racking for the first time talking to somebody you don’t know about your situation, but I aim to make this as easy and as calm an experience as possible for anybody I listen to. I'm very understanding and I know how it can feel to be brushed aside and neglected, so I always try to dedicate my time to you as much as I can and I'm more than happy to speak to anyone about anything - even if you just need a little chat, I'll always listen – and I can promise you that you will have my full undivided attention! It can be difficult to talk about things, trust others and open up but it can be just as difficult having no support. I'm very patient, so if you're struggling - that's fine! I'll give you as long as you need to explain your situation and talk things through. I understand how difficult it must be for you, my lovelies, but I'm so proud of you all for having the courage to come onto this site and talk to us and I'm proud of all my other fellow listeners here on 7 Cups of Tea, too!
If I'm online, please don’t hesitate to start a chat. If I'm offline, then send me a message and we can set up a time to connect. I'll always be sure to follow up with you after, usually between 1-5 days and I hope you all find 7 Cups of Tea helpful! Remember to share the compassion hearts and positive reviews where they're deserved – there’s never too much compassion and positivity to be shared on 7 Cups of Tea!
Glad you are here, stay strong!❤❤❤❤❤❤
Best wishes, Cat.
