7 Cups of Tea is a marketplace for emotional support. People contact us when they need to talk to somebody. If you are struggling and need to talk, then you have two options: family/friends or therapy. Family may judge you, not understand you, or simply not be the best listeners. Therapy, on the other hand, can be intimidating, costly and inconvenient. 7 Cups of Tea is in the middle. We match you up with trained active listeners that have passed a background check, a screening interview w/a mental health professional, and an advanced course in active listening. Active listeners are kind, compassionate and non-judgmental.
The key insight that this business is built on is that most people do not need full on psychotherapy and a diagnosis, they just need someone to listen.
For users, the site is anonymous, convenient, affordable and on-demand. We take a 40% cut of all transactions.
We solve a core human problem. People need somebody to talk to. They need someone to listen.
