I am 55. Married. Female. Mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother(via step-children). I am a survivor of childhood physical, emotional and sexual abuse as well as some neglect. I became a nurse after many years of dreaming of doing just that. I retired many years ago and I'm no longer licensed or qualified to offer any sort of official advice. That's what I hope you have doctors to assist you with. I find that reaching out and talking about my issues has helped me over the years. I hope to provide an accepting and supportive ear now. Feel free to reach out to me to discuss most anything. I can, and have been known to, say "no" if I feel a question goes too far.

Feel free to connect with me if you need to talk :)
Hello, my name is Emanuel. I’m currently working as a ABA therapist for kids with autism and studying a Bachelor of Psychology. The reason I volunteer on this site is because i know how important connection is when you’re going through bad times. My parents have suffered from various mental illnesses, and as a kid i suffered from anxiety and depression. Despite getting through them, i felt very alone during these periods so if i could just help one person on this platform i would consider my job done. On a much lighter note, i’m a massive fan of travelling, checking out nature, and watching drama-filled TV shows and movies. If you would like to connect with me, please send me a message, would love to hear from you.
I am holding a Ba and Ba Honours degree in Psychology as well as a Postgraduate certificate in education. I am in the process of applying for Med educational Psychology. I have 9 years experience working as a teacher. I also worked as an intern in the Mpumalanga department of education providing Psychological support to learners. I also went through a traumatic experience with my family when my younger sister was raped and murdered on her way from the university to home. I want to help other people who are experiencing emotional problems.

I am a wits student doing my second year in psychology. Growing up I always thought I wanted to be a lawyer but now I can’t think of being anything else besides a psychologist. I go out of my way to understand people. My friends sometimes have to ask me not to give them my psychology perspective lol. I could really say it had changed me a lot. I am more understanding and more compassionate now. I like reading books when I’m free, I actually read novels when taking a break from studying. My struggle with anxiety is still ongoing but I am winning, I have learnt to find ways to make it through. People find me as a rational person and always find me easy to talk to. I want to be a volunteer because I want to interact with people from different backgrounds as myself and make change in our society
