7 cups of tea review.
7 cups of tea found in the Internet on the website 7Cups.com are described as "emotional health and wellbeing on demand" which doesn't provide professional therapy, but gives to people of advantage of mental health of the devoted listener.
How does it work?
As it was already mentioned above, it is important to understand that this company doesn't provide to people online and professional therapy. Instead their purpose is anonymous connection of the clients with the trained listeners to get support of their daily problems which can also include questions of mental health.
On their website it is said that 7 cups of tea are focused on active listening which they describe as "a set of skills of communication which show sympathy, compassion, understanding and respect". Active listening is not the same as to have the friend or the family member to listen your problem or problems as the listener is completely concentrated on absorption of what you have to tell.
All listeners on this website actually are volunteers, but all volunteers need to pass an online course which helps to develop skills of active listening, and they have to pass examination in active hearing with the excellent account before they are able to begin. Besides, on the website it is said that all listeners undergo testing of a background, and all listeners are subject to viewing of visitors and will be awarded with badges on the basis of their responses.
Many of volunteers who work at the website are the licensed professional consultants and therapists, but they aren't allowed to allow legally any medical or psychological consultations during the talk. Instead, all listeners will watch closely what you tell and if they consider that your experience or the relation indicate requirements besides active listening, they will direct you to the professional licensed therapist, the consultant or the emergency contact.
Plans of expenses/prices
On the website it is very clear that clients can take free of charge advantage of many services, however, if you are that who wants to get access to their complete list of recognized services, you can get a subscription.
Clients can pay this service monthly, for only 12,95 US dollars a month while people who are interested in an annual subscription can receive it for 95,88 US dollars that about 7,99 US dollars a month break. They also offer a two-year subscription to the sum of 154,08 US dollars which breaks up to 6,24 US dollars a month and also a subscription to Forever worth 419,95 US dollars.
Whether can fill 7 cups of tea you with more optimistical appearance?
At first sight, 7 cups of tea can sound as modern turn in traditional current therapy. Having spent several minutes in a chat, I could see how an opportunity to share with the impartial person, even the stranger, can be katarsistsky.
However there are some big differences between use of 7 cups of the tea platform and booking of hour with the therapist. The most obvious of them is that use of 7 cups of tea doesn't provide those who deal with the serious problems of mental health, with a possibility of assessment or studying of various mechanisms of overcoming experience at the skilled expert in mental health.
Besides, 7 cups focus not only on certain members, but also on creation of community by means of fid of activity and forums of support.
This aspect of community left us in perplexity whether it is worth focusing on 7 cups providing the valuable safe place for those who have hard time to contact the trained listener? Or, it is possible if they are one more technical team which looks for a corner for copying of Facebook and other achievements of social network.
Whether 7 cups of tea can help you in hard time?
I remember how my grandmother told me once about time when she felt far away and as it rose by courage to enter section of the self-help of the local bookstore. On the shelf she saw the book under the name "I as It Should Be, You as It Should Be", then was developed and left. When it was asked why, she told that reading this phrase - everything that it is necessary for it.
It is impossible to estimate quantitatively complexity of emotional turbulence of each person. But it is possible to tell with confidence that 7 cups of tea won't be sufficient for those who pass really difficult patch.
If, however, you as my grandmother, just you need additional pushing, support material, the active listeners and ways of growth available at 7 o'clock, can be only that ticket which you need to develop more solar look.
