What is a Listener?

Someone to talk to without the risk of being criticized, shamed, or judged. 

Professional Listeners are NOT Life Coaches, Psychotherapists, or Counsellors. A professional listener offers their empathy and active listening skills as a way to support you in your experiences.  We provide you with a safe, judgement free space to process, brainstorm, reflect, grieve, laugh, and feel heard and seen. Professional Listening is a way of taking the most effective parts of therapeutic relationships, and offering it in a more financially, and readily accessible service. 

Why Hire a Listener

A listener provides you with a safe space to express yourself the way that YOU need.

Through studies of specialized therapies such as psychotherapy and counselling, it was found that the most effective listening behaviors for patients consisted of providing a safe space with presence and opportunity to vent. Through the services of a professional listener, we take these attributes of a therapeutic relationship, and provide a safe space that allows you to drive the conversation and feel seen and heard. This safe space provided by the listener effectively reduces feelings of stress and confusion through the opportunity for verbal processing and authentic emotional expression. In many instances, with these interactions, comes clarity.

We are AFFORDABLE at $40 dollars per hour long session.
