Interested in sharing your time to tune into the struggles of others?
Well, you're at the right place! Simply fill up the contact form below. We'll try our best to get back to you quickly.
All our HEAR BUDs go through a screening interview. Following that, we'll take you through a short 2 x 2 hour course (depending on your pre-existing knowledge) via zoom to bring you up to speed on the concept of Professional Listening.
There, you will learn:
Humanistic Psychology Principles (Carl Rogers).
Active Listening Skills.
What to do in tricky scenarios!
Techniques from Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
You must be 18 years old and above
You have a natural knack for listening
You're willing to be open about sharing your struggles with others
Help us figure out how to help Under 18s.
We currently can't open up our Hear Bud Service to under 18s due to parental consent required.
However, we have thoughts of a solution. To setup an anonymous Peer Support Network via our Discord Channel.
It's still a new system, with anonymous members being able to book an anonymous trained peer supporter to talk to on there.
Wanna help out and build on this idea?
