I work collaboratively with clients because together we can make the changes you want and need. I listen and support and as well as advise and coach.

We are advised as listeners to not give advice, however its a great place to talk to helpful listeners and other people that may be in your situation. Sometimes we don't always need advice to feel better about a situation. Sometimes all we need is someone to listen even though we might not know that

7 cups is a great place to honestly share how you are feeling in an open safe environment that allows you to come to your own conclusion/decision

It's a great website for advice, encouragement, guidance or just a friendly chat. The listenears are non judgmental, friendly and very helpful.

A 7Cups listener is not allowed to offer advice to members but 7Cups offer a lot of self-help guides to help you, the listeners are also here to listen to you offer a shoulder to lean on.

Not exactly. We are here to listen to your problems and to help you vent out so that you feel better. We can only bring a smile, we have no right to advice you on your life.

It depends. Sometimes, when we say we need advice we really mean that we need a trusted one to bounce our thoughts off of, so we can find where the best path lies. If that is the case, 7Cups is certainly the place for you. You won't find direct advice, because none of us know you as well as you do, but you will find plenty of people who will help you think through what's worrying you, and with them you'll get to the place where you can give yourself the best advice you could ever receive.

On 7cups, we aren't really allowed to give advice. What we do is help you figure out the right path for you.

7Cups is not a good place for advice because listeners are trained not to give any advice. You know what is best for you, so we do not want to tell anyone something that could end up being harmful or making things worse.

7Cups is a great place for you to seek out support and feel heard. We can help you take steps towards making your own decisions that will benefit you best!

In 7Cups we can help you by listening to your problems but You are the expert on you. Our job is to help you come to decisions that make the most sense in your life. We could give you advice, but it might end up being unhelpful and we don’t want to do that

7 cups is a community where you can get support, not advice. Listeners are trained to be empathetic and give guests and members someone to talk to.

7Cups is a great place for advice! You can write out your feelings without being worried. Any time you can come and talk to many people about different things.

Usually I find that the listeners here would refrain from advice, which is a good thing. At the same time, the way I proceed is that I do not give advice, but suggestions. The difference is that I only try and suggest the person of what options they have in their current circumstance. I also try and tell people that it is only MY OPINION and the only thing I can really ever do is try to make them smile by telling some cheesy joke (if the chat has died down and become less serious, its good to break the tension) or I just listen and let them vent :)

Yes, with 7 cups you can be matched up with many listeners there are listeners for almost any topic
October 22nd, 2015 4:03pm
No, 7Cups is a just a place where you can tell your problems to listeners and they'll help you find your path to feel better. Giving advice is wrong because you're the best expert on you
October 23rd, 2015 12:41am
Yes. It is a 100% supportive community. We are glad to help. Come connect with listeners anytime you need
October 23rd, 2015 8:45am
You know your situation the best, down to every detail and you will have to find your own advice, and make your own choices. You know best what's best for you.

7 Cups is a good place to be guided to the answer you need and want, but for straight-up advice it's not a go-to.
October 24th, 2015 1:52am
It is a great place! You can always find someone here who is willing to listen and tell you what they think.

We can't really give advice, we can help you work through your problems though, anyone here on 7cups would be more than happy to help you. Here's my personal link : http://www.7cups.com/11117051

7Cups has compassionate listeners who can help you along the path to discovering your next step. Research has shown people are more likely to follow advice & goals they have generated for themselves.
October 25th, 2015 7:23pm
Nope. Listeners are not allowed to give you advice, the most we can do for you is recommend things and make you feel better.
October 26th, 2015 9:27pm
Listeners can't give advice because it can be harmful because we don't know your exact experience and if we give advice it can do more harm than good.
October 28th, 2015 3:24pm
Amazing! All listeners are so caring and compassionate and willing to help❤️ Anyone could message me anytime they need help
October 28th, 2015 3:32pm
At 7Cups our aim as listeners is to guide you and make suggestions so that you can realise the best solution for yourself. We do not feel that giving advice would be completely beneficial as we are not physically in your shoes and can only imagine what we could do in the situation that you are in. Misinterpreting details of your situation could result in wrong advice being given and consequences for the member if they decide to follow it.

7cups is a great place to share our emotions though it has its own limits. Try it once and see if it brings any change in your life there are many resources here which is very great to understand. If still it doesnt work attend a therapist.
October 29th, 2015 6:15am
No. 7Cups is a listening service. We are not here to give advice. We can talk through things with you, but not give advice.
October 29th, 2015 6:15pm
At 7Cups of Tea we as listeners aren't here to give advice to people. We are here to listen to what you have to tell. There are alot of guides available though. One of these guides might help you out.

I think the best person to go to is someone who is in a good relationship or has been in one, or who has managed to get out of a bad one and can assist you in noting warning signs in your relationship.
October 31st, 2015 1:23pm
I suggest to go to professionals, they know exactly what to advise and how to deal with different problems. we are here to listen :)
