Come, talk to us...we are here to listen.
Listening Post is a space where you can talk about anything that’s on your mind and our volunteers will listen – with empathy and without judgement.
It’s a safe, non-judgmental space. The conversations are confidential and they help you be calm, listen to yourself, and gain clarity.
Listening Post helps you to -
What is it about talking to another person feels so good? Why is it that one feels calmer and more centred when someone listens carefully and mindfully to everything one has to say?
Talking aloud to someone helps you articulate better what’s in your mind and helps you listen to your own thoughts and feelings. You understand yourself better and gets you to be more in control of your situation.
No matter what you are going through in life, it is a universal truth that you are your own solution provider. But for this to happen, you sometimes need a person who will listen to you without judgement, with sensitivity and with an open mind.
Friends and family will listen but may also advise and nag you about it. This may intefere with what you may want to do.
Listening Post offers you a process of active listening so that you hear your own thoughts, obtain clarity, and arrive at your own solutions.
We believe that you are best equipped to find your own answers, and we serve as much needed facilitators/ sounding boards to bring you closer to resolution. No issue is too small, and, no problem is irrelevant for us; this space is devoted entirely to you and your needs. You may come as often as you wish and talk for as long as you like.
Moreover, if you need advice/guidance in other areas of life/work and don’t know where to seek help, the Listening Post serves as the first point of contact for you to air your needs, after which we will be happy to refer you to relevant specialists/counsellors or our other programs where your issues can be addressed.
Listening Post sessions are confidential and free.
Our Listening Post volunteers come from all walks of life and are well-trained to take the conversation forward. Know more about them here.
