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.

But even with the inspiration of others, it's understandable that we sometimes think the world's problems are so big that we can do little to help. On our own, we cannot end wars or wipe out injustice, but the cumulative impact of thousands of small acts of goodness can be bigger than we imagine.

Why am I a good listener? I I worked in an alternative healing centre in St John's Wood, London. I ran a Gestalt group at Assumption University. I ran a nightdream Gestalt group in Bangkok Thailand. I was a client in both Freudian and Jungian analysis for several years. I am a published author in existential philosophy. I have three degrees in humanities subjects. Why do I work free on cups? I have enough money to look after my wife and myself. I sometimes meet some great people. My chatters often cannot afford 'professional' services. Forty years experience in the field, both as a chatter and a listener. (Send me approximately a five-line message explaining your situation.) Much older than most, I am English, ex-college teacher, living in Bangkok, friendly, have a good sense of humour and a strong interest in humanistic psychology (inspired by Carl Rogers). I now have a related masters degree, and welcome polite and responsible chatters. For some reason, I get many young people (aged 18 – 30) in the process of discovering who they are. Weekly Cups chatting is a process that involves a level of commitment from BOTH the listener and the chatter. Be prepared to commit yourself to weekly one-hour sessions on the internet at a specific time. Remember you are getting this assistance free.Articulate chatters with ambitions for change get a better response rate.If you maintain courage, clarity and commitment, I will accompany you on your journey until you have found the best solution to what has been bothering you. My best hour is 8am, Bangkok time, 9pm EST New York; Brazil, Argentina a bit earlier. Compare your time zone with mine. https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ Leave me a message.

I am 32. I am introvert (INFJ T). From Mexico. I am taking sertraline, clonazepam and Methylphenidate for OCD, ADHD (although i doubt this diagnosis) and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I dont drink nor smoke. After one hour I might ask you to do some closure and say good bye. Also, I would really appreciate if you rate me and leave a review so I can become a better listener or to cheer me up if things went well. Thank you for the attention. 😉

Just another human learning. Notes: (1) I don’t answer personal questions. (2) 7 Cups is not a dating site.

Hello! I'm a 36y old French guy.In my 20's I struggled with loneliness, social anxiety, and self-esteem issues. I was fortunate to be able to take some time off to focus on myself, and met some great friends who helped me open up. I learned firsthand just how much your mindset can affect your life. I'm trying to have an attitude of acceptance, compassion, and understanding, with both the good AND the bad. In life, in myself, and in others.
