Yes, we heart 7 Cups of Tea which is, to quote them: “An on-demand emotional health and well-being service.” Their cutting edge technology connects ‘real people’ to ‘real listeners’ anonymously & securely via an one-on-one chat portal.
To quote them further: “Anyone who wants to talk about whatever is on their mind can quickly reach out to a trained, compassionate listener through our network. We have hundreds of listeners who come from all walks of life and have diverse experiences.
People connect with listeners on 7 Cups of Tea for all kinds of reasons, from big existential thoughts to small, day-to-day things that we all experience. Unlike talking to family or friends, a 7 Cups of Tea listener doesn’t judge or try to solve problems and say what to do. Our listeners just listen. They understand. They give you the space you need to help you clear your head.”
So How Does 7 Cups Of Tea Work?
Anyone can connect with a listener via their website by requesting the first available listener and/or selecting a specific listener from the 7 Cups of Tea community.
All of the 7 Cups of Tea listeners have completed our an ‘Active Listening training program’, which is an online course in advanced skills for compassionate communication. This course has been designed by their psychologist in residence, Glen Moriarty (who also happens to be the 7 Cups of Tea CEO & Founder).
To quote them (again): “Many of our listeners have joined 7 Cups of Tea because they love to help others and want to do something meaningful in their free time. All our listeners offer their kind ear for free since they understand what it is like to feel alone in distress.”
