Frequently Asked Questions
Is it okay to feel lonely?
Loneliness is sometimes the only rational feeling. When was the last time you felt truly heard by someone? Speaking with someone in confidence who really listens to you is imperative to the human condition to feel unburdened. You deserve and need to be heard. We are in an unprecedented time of isolation due to the pandemic. Being fully heard is a basic human need and we are here to help you.
How will this help me?
Sometimes a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, clergyman or life coach is not what you need, and speaking with family members or friends is not a comfortable option. n2Bh offers confidential and private listening sessions by video or phone for anyone who feels lonely, needs to have an impartial ear, or just needs someone to talk to… about anything.
Do your listeners have medical degrees?
Active listening is not therapy, and our empathetic listeners do not have medical degrees.
Why would I use a non-licensed listener?
We are here to be your advocate and offer emotional support, not to diagnose you and put you “in the system”.
Do you take insurance?

How is need2Bheard different from therapy?
