7 Cups of Tea is an online emotional heath and well-being support service where people can go when they need to talk to someone or need extra emotional support.
7 Cups Of Tea offers an anonymous online chat or phone conversations with trained active listeners. It allows you to speak with a compassionate, real person on a secure network. The listeners come from all walks of life, and have diverse experiences. 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; they just listen, do their best to understand, and provide empathic support. The site uses a secure bridging technology to make the connection, so neither the caller or listener’s phone number is revealed.
Unlike expensive therapy, 7 Cups of Tea is convenient and affordable. There are no commitments and no time limits. Anyone can connect as little or as often as they like; you can choose a random male or female listener or browse listener profiles and find a listener who shares your interests. Listeners set their rate as free, pay what you want, or a set rate per minute. Listeners are required to complete an online course which helps develop Active Listening skills; a great technique that directs all focus towards the speaker, and by that removes potential sources of stress, conflict and discomfort that can happen in a regular conversation. So is you need to get something off your chest, find a good listener and talk it out.
