Many people find that talking about their feelings can alleviate their distress. Phone Pals strive to provide a more personable chat line for those feeling in distress and in need of someone to talk to.
Phone Pals are here to listen.
We are for those individuals who can not afford or need a licensed psychologist. We are for those individuals who do not need a crisis hotline. Phone Pals offer an impartial, actively listening ear to help you get through your day to day issues, as opposed to full-blown psychotherapy. In many cases, all we need is someone to let us vent, offer constructive feedback without trying to fix their problems, and someone who’ll always be there to listen. Phone Pals set out to be that listening ear for anyone who needs it.
Every Phone Pal is interviewed, checked out, and put through training courses to help them help others. No one knows who you are or what your problems are unless you want them to. You can start talking to someone immediately, or you can develop a rapport with a specific listener and talk to them on multiple occasions (if they’re available).
Family and friends might judge you, might not really understand you, and probably aren’t the best listeners. On the other end of the spectrum therapy, can be intimidating, inconvenient to schedule, and really expensive. Phone Pals sits in the middle.
Phone calls are $0.25/minute or become a Favorite Pal for $30.00/month.
Just talk, we are here to listen.
