7 Cups of Tea Offers Anonymous Online Therapy and Someone to Talk to

— March 25, 2016 — Tech
This free mental health app acts as online therapy as it connects you with someone willing to listen to specifically your type of problem. 7 Cups of Tea connects you to compassionate listeners (including therapists and counsellors) so you can anonymously chat via text.

7 Cups also hosts simple exercises you can begin with if you are feeling out of sorts. This means in addition to giving you someone you can talk to, the online therapy platform gives you new skills to help you overcome whatever challenge you are facing. This helps people find support instantly, which can be particularly helpful if they don't have someone in real life they feel comfortable confiding in. Users can choose their own listener too.
