*** Per 7 Cups policy, I do NOT accept Listener Support Chats. You will need to change to your Member account for support. ***On 7 Cups of Tea - I was a 7 Cups Mentor, was a Chat Support Group Moderator, and I still assist with Relationship Support within Forums Only.I'm heading towards my Master's Degree in Psychology and plan to become a licensed therapist in the near future once licensing has completed.I'm a Specialist (I only cover these areas):* Relationships - Boyfriend/Girlfriend Husband/Wife Issues
* All Aspects of Sexuality and Sexual Issues(If you have issues outside this area, I strongly encourage you to locate another Listener who is more equipped to handle your situation.)Qualifications:I hold several (6) degrees from regionally accredited universities and I'm also well read, easy to talk to, understanding, and have had a wealth of life experiences that makes talking to me simple... as someone who has probably been through some of the things that you have. I'm open-minded, motivational, and sometimes quite inspirational - providing those words that you may know you need to hear deep down, but unable to bring to the surface on your own. My words may not always be what you want to hear but you can depend on me to give you complete honesty. Also, I am not a judge or jury.
Confidentiality Statement:There is nothing you can say that will shock me. I take confidentiality VERY seriously. I will never tell anyone what you've shared with me in confidence. I'm here to provide a mirror, lamp, window, ladder, or a boat to a much more positive mental location than where you are now.Ground Rules for Discussions:1. I am not obligated to do anything other than listen to your issues. I am NOT paid for this work. I am, much like most on 7 Cups, a volunteer. I volunteer spare time that I have in order to help people through very difficult issues. Please maintain a high level of respect as a result. My time is consumed with a full-time job that is not related to this site along with college work to complete my degree. I volunteer for 7 Cups of Tea when I have the available time.
2. Simply because I listen to sexual situations or discussions is NOT an invite to engage in sexually stimulating conversation with me. I have a zero tolerance policy for this behavior. Our discussion is only therapeutic purposes and there are other sites where you can engage in this form of behavior if that is what you need - 7 Cups is not one of them.3. This is not Match.com. I am not interested in dating, meeting in real life, or sharing my personal information.4. Please keep your conversations to a maximum of 30 minutes to respect other members and guests - without prior approval for extensions. Please understand in advance that our relationship is not any sense of a long-term relationship or replacement for in-person support, therapy, or psychiatric care. I am also not equipped to provide to you on-going or long-term support of any type.
5. Please leave feedback! Your feedback is very valuable. My goal is to provide stellar service and I can only improve by your voicing your opinion on my delivery, approach, and professionalism.
6. I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who is rude, profane, or disrespectful.
7. I am not politically correct. I am not the Listener on 7 Cups that will gleefully tell you what you want to hear nor will I placate you with sweet nothings. I tell it like it is, but I do try to be tactful about it. Please note that if you connect with me, I'm going to be polite, professional, but I'm going to look at the situation from 360 degrees as best as I can to provide the best kind of support. If you're looking for PC discussions, placating conversation, patting you on the back when it is not warranted - there are other Listeners on 7 Cups that will be more than happy to accept your request to chat.
8. If you are on your Listener Account, I will either request that you use your Member Account or not respond at all. I used to request corrections, but I'm flooded with Listener requests for support which is against site policy. I'd love to talk to you, but not on your Listener Account. Thanks in advance.

*Only taking self-harm chats at the moment! Feel free to PM me for support with this topic! **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, I'm Rose. I am a great person to talk to about serious and difficult issues.
I do not have any topics which I am unable to handle or that make me uncomfortable. There is a list of topics I specialize in below the photo.
I always do everything I can to create a non-judgmental and compassionate atmosphere. I will respond immediately to all personal chat requests if I am online, and will talk to you for as long as you need.
I understand that for some, knowing the person they are talking to is an important piece of being comfortable sharing their feelings and experiences. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. To read a bit more about me personally, scroll to the bottom of my profile page.
If I am offline you can:
Make an appointment
Find another listener
or Locate outside mental health resources
I have written many guides on handling difficult topics, as well as having put to together an extensive resource guide for you to use. Do not hesitate to message me if you ever find yourself lacking resources. I can also help you become more involved in the listener community.

“No one leaves home until home is a sweaty voice in your ear saying- leave, run away from me now. I don’t know what I’ve become, but I know that anywhere is safer than here.” - Warsan Shire

More about me
I am a writer, a musician, and I love being outside. I spend most of my time reading, going on long walks, playing guitar, or kayaking in the river. I believe very strongly in being the change you want to see in the world, and I take a hard neutral stance on perception. I began living on my own at the age of 16, and have experience with homelessness, psychosis, sexual assault, abuse, and drug use - both healthy and unhealthy. I am a polyamorous person, which means that I practice consensual non-monogamy. I am passionate about harm reduction based drug education, and open sex-education which includes conversations about consent, relationships, and contraceptives. I enjoy spending time with people more than anything, and have an intrinsic drive to do all I can for the world.
Some poetry I enjoy:
🌈 Bunnie is here to listen to you! 🌈❤︎ I am a verified listener that is willing to listen to your problems and is happy to be a bunny friend. I will try my best to be empathetic by putting myself in your shoes. Do not worry for whatever you say is safe with me. ❤︎
I've had my own share of issues--especially depression, breakups, relationship issues, and student life. Plus, I am LGBTQ+ friendly! I don't usually take chats that aren't listed in the issues below. I highly recommend you to browse other listeners who are comfortable regarding your topic!
For members/guests trying to make a personal chat request, I request that we discuss chat topics that are listed in my profile, as this will help us both in our conversation. I strictly DON'T take chats regarding men's and women's issues or any chat of sexual nature. Any chat regarding these two will be redirected to new listeners.
I also take one hour chats only. Thank you very much!Book Me Here🐰
My twinnie is @pamharley003 and my wonderful mentors are @AiluraBlaze and @bear228!
P.S. Thanks to @LavenderFlower for the beautiful profile, I love it to bits!

Hello, I'm Jenna. I've been here for 5 years and it has been an impactful time in my life both for my own well-being and having the privilege to support others. My main focus on chat topics is anxiety, bipolar depression, DID, and trauma chats. You can find a full list of topics I support down below under categories. I work almost non-stop at my real life job which unfortunately has a huge impact on my availability. For this reason, I am not able to take on long-term members at this time until I am able to find a balance. So, we can have a 1 time chat if I am available. ♥I only take scheduled chats for 1 hour a day with current long-term members♥

Some of the things that I enjoy the most are reading, talking walks through the park, hiking, yoga and writing. I've overcome many obstacles in life and would like to help by listening to you. If I'm online please don't hesitate to reach out. If I happen to be offline, you are always welcome to send me a message and we can set up a time to talk. I'm glad that you are here.
Unfortunately I am unable to take any new chats at this time!
Hello! I am an intern graduate here at 7 Cups and I'm glad you've found me!! I am a 20-year-old male who has lived a life with bullying, anxiety, depression, and OCD.

However, I am a college student so unfortunately there will be periods where I can't respond due to testing and group work. I look forward to helping you! It would really help if you could leave me a review so I could figure out how to become the best Listener I can be!!
