Why Hire A Professional ListenerLooking for someone to talk to without the risk of being criticized, shamed or judged?
A Professional Listener is NOT a psychiatrist, counselor, life coach or psychic reader. Unlike these professions, a Listener will not label you with a ‘mental condition’ or express any opinions, predictions or judgement on your situation. Simply put, a Listener is a mirror that reflects yourself back to you.
Why Not Friends Or Family
There are some things you just can’t tell your friends and family right now. In fact, the closer your friends and family are, the more they tend to feel entitled about letting you know what’s in your best interest. And with that, the more they end up judging you even without intending to. Yes your family and friends do love you. But sometimes you just do not want them to know right now, and do not want their predictable advice at this time.
Experience No Judgement
A stranger who does not know you personally, and has no idea about your life story, comes with a clean canvas. There is a better energetic connection when there is no history or baggage between you and your Listener. Speaking to a Listener who does not expect anything in return is a liberating experience. No judgement literally means that your Listener has NO RIGHT to judge who you are as a person, and will not tell you what to think, believe or do.
Your Secret Is Safe
‘Don’t count your chickens until they’re hatched’. You may relate to this if you’ve been hurt in the past by people who haven’t kept your secret. How many times have you been excited about a business idea or a personal milestone and are dying to tell all, but afraid it will spill to the wrong people? Ironically, the phrase “your secret is safe with me” stands better with a stranger than with someone you know.

Facts of The Matter
The two most helpful listening behaviors include (1) providing the opportunity to ventilate, and (2) presence (being there)
We listen to people at a rate of 125-250 words per minute, but think at 1,000-3,000 words per minute
In a spoken message, 55% of the meaning is translated non-verbally, 38% is indicated by the tone of voice, while only 7% is conveyed by the words used
