Hello, I'm Leo. I'm a trained, verified listener, particularly specialized in mental illness management, problem solving, and LGBT issues. I'm here to listen and support you with anything you may be going through, as well as offer a warm presence for anything you'd like to share with me.
All topics and areas of discussion welcome.
Hello, I'm Jennifer and I'm a verified listener.
See below for informaton on how I work on 7cups. My feed will have updates if I'm out of my 7cups office for any reason.
__________________________________________________________________________________About Jennifer: I can support those with D.I.D, depression, stress and generalised anxiety.
Unfortanately I am not experienced in relationship/social/sexual issues.
I am also unexperienced in anger management problems.
I do suggest seeking a listener who specialises in the area of support you require.
I work professionally and gently support during emotional times.
I offer an outside perspective and a level demeanor.
There are some listeners with a more casualised chat style if you need this.
__________________________________________________________________________________ Booking an appointment: I work by appointments and also provide long term support.
To secure a chat session, I use Calendly booking system.
Here is the link to my current available appointment times.
I update my schedule on a weekly basis.
This booking method however needs to request a name & email.
You do not have to supply this.
Message me here and I will make the booking for you.
If this doesn't bother you, feel free to use whatever name you like.
By providing an email, it can be used as a back up form of contact.
I have 3 mandatory questions that follow.
These questions ask if you are suicidal and if you also understand I am not a psychologist.
Once these things are clear for us both, we can start off on the right track.
I look forward to hearing from you and making an arrangement that suits you.
Long term support:
Those wanting long term support, I can offer you ongoing assistance.
Message me any time and if I am available in that moment, I can respond.
If unavailable, I won't be able to respond at the time.
There may be times I need to leave for work or a personal commitment.
Delays in response time may be expected, as I may be commited to other tasks.
To ensure undivided attention / immediate response, book ahead below.
Example of both support methods: Online: live appointments (45 - 60 minute appointments - Longer if requested) Offline: occasional messaging (Long-term support with some reply delay) If you are in a crisis and I'm unavailable, please seek another listener or contact an emergency hotline.
__________________________________________________________________________________ Important information & boundaries: Suicidal/self harm is an urgent priority I respond to first.
If a member however is feeling this way, we advise suicide.org.
Mental health sufferers are a high priority.
Topics of no mental health concern are a lower priority.
A casual chat may have some response delays.
Sexual requests/flirting/threats/harrassment I may block/ban.
Triggering chats will get 2 warnings before ending the chat.
I do not answer messages if I am not 100% well to support you.
(Though I will inform you if this is the case).
I may take self care breaks if I have personal matters to attend to. Dependency issues:
It is not uncommon to develop an emotional connection with a supporter.
I am often asked for personal contact information / social media.
I choose not to give out my information as this is one of my boundaries.
I choose to listen and choose not to form friendships inside or outside 7cups.
Unhealthily dependant members will be advised to seek another listener.
7cups permits to ban/block members if my mental health is compromised.
My boundaries are not listed to be unfriendly.
It ensures the healthiest approach to your mental health and mine by having a professional relationship.
__________________________________________________________________________________ If I cannot accept your chat request, you may try again or seek another listener.
Thank you for your understanding, patience and reading through my terms.
I appreciate the support and feedback. Warm regards - Jennifer.

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?

I gladly take new chats but I can't always reply quickly, every time. If you need immediate assistance, seek out a listener who is online right now.
I live in North America! If you live in the UK or a similar longitude, my current time is 7 hours earlier. If you live in eastern Europe my time could be about 10 hours earlier. If you live in Asia, think 12-14 hours earlier! Please consider the time zone differences when contacting me and do not be shocked if you do the math and I am non-responsive in the middle of North American night!
