Need to talk to someone?

More Filters

It can sometimes be difficult to find support from family members, friends, or like minded people. While you might have a best friend or a support system and network such as groups on social media, you might want to seek support without any social interaction.

Our listeners provide emotional support through active listening. Active listening helps process your emotional distress. The following page can be filtered to seek listeners who provide long-term help and support. You can also browse listeners according to your preferred language as well as for different topics amongst other filters.

7 Cups is a chat site/app that has different options to find a good listener. You can meet new people and text chat with other individuals going through tough times - you are not alone! Everyone goes through a hard time at some point in their lives and we are here for you. Whether you are facing relationship problems, panic attacks, struggling with substance abuse, loneliness, depression, anxiety, or any other mental health issue, our site/app is a safe space based on confidential, anonymous support.

A good idea is to consider what form of support you would like in the first place - we have plenty of options to explore and one of the best ways is to give them a try to find out what works for you. We understand that different people have different needs and preferences. All these support services are appropriate for different situations.

This page can help you seek a trained active listener to talk to through 1-on-1 conversations. These listeners come from different walks of life and all are ready to offer a compassionate listening ear to people who would like to talk to someone else. You can select their username to view their detailed profile page with their shared bio and other information such as whether they have lived experience of mental health conditions or topics, their reviews, as well as their training and other badges. While our listeners do not provide direct advice, their support can help you vent your feelings and concerns in a safe space and you can work together to figure out healthy coping tools.

Listener conversations can vary in duration according to your listener's and your personal availability. Some listeners have the option to schedule chats with them in advance. You can always browse for listeners and leave them a message so that they can get back to you with their availability.

There are several other ways you can find someone to talk to at 7 Cups. These include the group chats and subcommunities. We are glad you are taking the first step towards support!

Our group chat rooms are online chat rooms that serve as different support groups where you can send text messages 24/7. We are a global community with people from all over the world. Some chat rooms include the Sharing Circle room, which is a non-judgemental safe space based on the traditions of AA and similar support groups. This space can prove helpful if you need a group of people to talk to who can listen and get to know you over a long time. Sharing your feelings and experiences as well as listening to those of others can help feel supported. You can expand your support network and make online supportive friends and connections!

On the other hand, if you would like to interact with people and talk to someone over forums, we have dedicated subcommunities for over 45+ topics covering a wide range of mental illness support topics through various sub-forums. Our subcommunities provide support, awareness, events, as well as opportunities to participate in light-hearted icebreakers.

Apart from the above mentioned mental health services at 7 Cups, we have affordable therapy options allowing you to seek online therapy for mental health problems with an online therapist, licensed psychologist, and other mental health professionals. This support is affordable as compared to other online and offline services or other options like support through insurance companies. Therapists are also available to talk to throughout the week on working days.

While our community can help support you after you have lost someone else to suicide, 7 Cups is not to be used in the state of active/passive suicidal thoughts - for such cases, please visit helpful resources such as the Samaritans or National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. For a complete list of helpful resources, click here.

If you would like to gain further insight and helpful information about different mental health topics, you can visit our Community Questions and Answers pages, or read our Expert Mental Health News and Advice articles. Other main features you can explore include our self-help guides and growth paths based on treatment protocols available for free!

The bottom line is, you are never alone - 7 Cups is a community aiming to provide compassion on a global scale. There are various ways to talk to someone at 7 Cups. These include 1-on-1 conversations based on active listening and support through trained listeners, group chats with support discussions and Sharing Circles, and the subcommunity forums. Other features that you may find helpful include the growth paths, community questions and answers, as well as expert advice sections.

Nana Yaa is my name, technically now in high school. I'd love to be a listener because I know how hard it can really get and it feels even harder when there's no one there to listen to what you have to say. So I want to be that listener that listens when you need someone there to listen.

Hi welcome, if you're looking for help regarding your anxiety, depression, relationship, & emotion regulation issues- you're in the right place. You might be looking to regain control over your issues, seeking for meaning in suffering, or aiming to be relieved of patterns of distress that keep happening to you. We all desire to live ourselves free of unnecessary psychological issues, and to have good relationships with others & ourselves. These are just a few of the common needs we all have as humans, and I've helped people unpack and formulate plans to achieve their individual ideals. As a listener I'm focused and trained on using cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused therapy. In my free time, I am a makeup artist. Feel free to connect with me if you'd like to get a feel of working with me.   Merhaba, Kaygı bozukluğu, depresyon, ilişki problemleri ve duygu düzenlemelerinde problem yaşıyorsanız, doğru yerdesiniz.  Karşılaştığınız sorunlarda kontrolü tekrar kazanmak, yaşadığınız acıda anlam aramak, ya da stresinizden kurtulmak istiyor olabilirsiniz. Hepimiz hayatımızı gereksiz psikolojik sorunlardan uzak yaşamayı  ve diğer insanlar ve kendimizle iyi ilişkiler sürmeyi hak ediyoruz. Bunlar sadece insan olarak bir kaç ortak ihtiyacımız ve bunları gün ışığına çıkartıp formüle edip sizi hedeflerinize ulaştırabiliriz.  Bir dinleyici olarak kognitif davranışçı terapi ve çözüm odaklı terapi konusunda eğitim aldım ve bunu kişilerin ihtiyaçlarına göre yorumluyorum. Boş zamanlarımda makyözlük yapıyorum. Benimle konuşmak isterseniz mesaj atmaktan çekinmeyin.

HELLO!I'm Bella, a mom of three and a trained & verified listener here on 7Cups since 2018.  While I do accept chats, I do not accept all chats and chat topics.  My choice to not accept certain chat topics in no way reflects my personal opinions on them.  I also do not take chats from 'Listener' accounts.  As a Listener, I reserve the right to decide I am not a good fit for our conversation regardless of topic and will let you know I feel this way and that I will be ending our chat.   Please be respectful when speaking with Listeners as we are volunteering our time.  MY STATUS:Online/Green:  I am online and accepting member requests but please keep in mind I am a volunteer and may have stepped away to take care of personal and/or family obligations so will be unable to answer all requests or messages right away.  Busy/Orange:  I am busy chatting with a member, away from the screen or am taking a self-care break.  Please leave a message and I will respond as soon as I am free.Offline/Red: I am not online.  You may leave me a message, however, if you are in need of immediate help or you are in danger please reach out to other listeners.  Click here to browse listeners. Please don't forget to smile today! :)Important Links to consider:7 Cups Getting Started Guide (for new members)7 Cups Mindfulness Exercises  (when you need a moment to breathe)7 Cups Self-Help Guides  (information on many topics)7 Cups Online Therapy Dept (to speak w/ a trained professional)

“The unhealed, disowned aspects of your shadow are trying desperately to win over your attention. Unexpressed feelings never really die, they are buried alive inside of us only to resurface in uglier ways (when triggered)...  The relationship you have with yourself (consciously or unconsciously) sets the tone for every other relationship in your life.”  credit: Anon I mus Welcome, and know that there is much to be gained by losing the mind chatter.  How might we step out on this path together? Very little fazes me.  Non-judgmental listening is what you will find here in this space we create. In particular, I specialize in the journey of grief and loss because I have experienced it first-hand.

Hello, I'm Lin! I have gone through many chapters in my journey and still going through them now. I see each chapter as a lesson (opportunity) for me, whether positive or negative as they open and close. I learn to be more empathetic, positive, active and great listener/life coach. My goal is to help you visualize and feel into what you are going through, then we can figure out what you want to do from there.  I love people, running, singing, dancing, tai chi, cooking, creating new recipes, meditation, reading, talking and listening to people. So how about working together: multiculture/multilevel relationships, struggles, health and wellness and etc.   Thanks for viewing my profile.

*PLEASE READ MY ENTIRE BIO BEFORE REQUESTING A CHAT*  *PLEASE READ IT* *SERIOUSLY..READ IT!* "The nature of humanity, its essence, is to feel another's pain as one's own, and to act to take that pain away. There is nobility in compassion, a beauty in empathy , a grace in forgiveness." - JOHN CONNOLLY Days can be hard. I know they can be. The ones where you can't get out of bed.  The ones where you just can't deal with your family.  The ones where the whole world is on your back.  The ones where the number on the scale hates you.  The ones where the grief is overwhelming.  The ones where the anxiety is driving you mad.  The ones where you can't put down the blade.  The ones where your bed feels like your only home.  The ones where you feel all alone, and the world seems so big.  The ones when you don't know which choice to make. The ones where no one seems to understand.  They're so so so very hard. I know they are.  That's why you're here right? So those days can be a little less hard. So on those days, someone can be there.  So someone can listen.  My name is Alexia, and I would love to be that person for you. Eighteen years old, with a lot of life experience in major areas. See for yourself in the list below.  Why don't you reach out? Here are some things that you should note before you do:Green means I'm active and ready to respond to chats. Requests will be taken in a timely manner once they're sent out. Once I have started a chat, I will adjust my status to busy so that you, my member are my priority within that time frame. Orange means that I am in a scheduled chat with another member, or in another session with a member. Due to this, any requests sent out during this time will be accepted, but I may not respond in a timely manner, or at all, depending on circumstance. Red means that I am currently inactive, and most likely busy with school. As such, personal requests will not be seen or responded to during this time. YOU CAN BOOK ME HERE: https://alexia-7-cups-listening.youcanbook.mePLEASE NOTE:  Once you have booked me, send me a message on here, so I know your appropriate member username. I use US/Canadian Eatern time.  I look forward to all of your chats❤  Thank you for reading ❤
