Our mission is inspired by the suffering of millions of people around the world. We are committed to end loneliness from people’s lives globally.

A compassionate buddy is all of the following:

  • Compassionate & Non-Judgmental Friend
  • A Psychologist by Education & Experience
  • Mindfulness practitioner & teacher
  • Trained Mindful Listener
  • Trained to help people with emotional challenges

Similar to many, our friend’s plate might also be full. Compassionate Buddy is a friend who is dedicated to be there to listen to you and help you. Unlike a lot of people in our lives, Compassionate Buddy’s are non-judgmental, trained professionals and have an innate sense of compassion and unconditional positive regard.
Imagine having a bad day, a conflict with a spouse, friend or a loved one. During such overwhelming experience, we need someone to hear our side of the story without judgments. In such situations, we may end up opening our vulnerable side to people who might judge us, or even take advantage of our vulnerability. A Compassionate Buddy does none of that, instead helps you manage such overwhelming experiences and think rationally. Expressing emotions is an innate human need, the luxury to express them in a compassionate, non-judgmental and confidential space is limited to only a few.
Compassionate Buddy can be available over audio, video or text messages, as preferred by the participant. Facetime, iMessage, Google meet, Telegram, Whatsapp & Zoom are some of the available modes of communication.
Every user gets upto 3 hours a week one to one time and may choose to connect with the Compassionate Buddy everyday. However there is no hard limitation for the time you may need in certain situations.
Fairly during the day and working hours.
The mission will be an on going for life. But there is no commitment we ask for. You can be a member for as long as you wish to.
