@Clementine666 therapy on here sucks. I would look for an person you can work with in person. I had a therapist on here for several months and all she did was check in once a day and recommended other resources. It’s total BS and not helpful. If your mental illness is not already being managed, look for a therapist you can work with in person.

@Larlar That is not my experience at all. If you add up being in touch with that person nearly every day! I am lucky (from a certain point of view). I have a trauma therapist whom I get to see for 45-50 minutes once a week for free. Then I can afford to have a 7 cups therapist Listener -- and a very good one -- for a month all for the the price of one, maybe two therapeutic 1 hr sessions. The point is 7 cups therapists give you another option for the kind of support you need, whever you need it. If you need something else, knock yourself out. But this works for me. I am in my 50's. I've been in counseling since I was 17. I believe you never stop growing and healing. I believe everyone needs a therapist, even therapists. Counselors come in all varieties and suit many different varieties of clients. If you want a good therapist with lots of really good experience here on 7 cups, Anna-Kate Miller knows her stuff. Here's a link. http://7cups.com/@AnnaKateMillerLCSW

@honestCup6891  I am so grateful to have found this resource.  I feel very supported and encouraged here, and have made some positive breakthroughs on what is challenging me.  I have not spoken/connected with any Therapists on this site yet.  This is purely from connecting with a few Listeners.  This in the mere 2 days I have been a member.

@gentlePear6403 sounds like a scam!! Initially they ask for a LOT of Information, I'd watch your card activity as a precaution!

@gentlePear6403 If you still have had no luck, I would recommend going to your bank and telling them, that way they can keep an eye on suspicious activity and depending on the situation the bank can re-imburse you. (Or they can in the UK, I'm not sure where you are.) But yeah, get your bank involved in this.

@gentlePear6403 hello...moving forward I suggest you use Paypal. they have a buyer protection policy and will rule in favor of the buyer in case of a dispute.

@Laura

(I'm asking this question my LISTENER account but am embarassed )

I know you're not allowed to talk about medications or say you're intoxicated

but are you allowed to acknowledge it if you use drugs recreationally?

I would not reccomend or condone use, I just want to know if I am allowed to say that I have used drugs recently and talk about experiances with said substances.

Anything I said would, of course, be aimed to help others and (again) would not encourage drug use.

Ie: Mushrooms having an effect on my depression

Interesting question. If you are supporting someone through substance abuse or usage, referring them to a medical professional would be helpful, as every person is different. In these situations, stick to your active listening skills and best practices. Empathy, Open ended quesitons, professionalism..etc. Sharing about an experience you have had in the past that relates to your member can be helpful, however, should be clearly explained and the topic should remain professional at all times.

@1Marg1   Thank you so much for the list of things to pledge to.  I hadn't found it yet on the site. (I'm a new member:  only 2 days. :-D).  

That said, on the matter of not setting up second accounts:  

I'm trying to AVOID doing that, but have an issue with my phone where it's stuck on the page asking me to set up an account (when I already have one).  I put in a Support Ticket, but am wondering if there's another quicker fix out there?  Any advice for a newbie?  

My workaround has been to access the site off my laptop, but I'd really like to be able to access it off my phone as well! 

 

ANY help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

I'm thinking about therapy but one on one. The therapy here is probably useful to some but it is the money what puts people off. There's been few people who have signed up and been charged. It's suppose to be three day trail. You shouldn't get charged for that and the therapist should say if they like to continue and give them that option. I know therapy isn't always free it just needs to be explained clearly what people are signing up for.
