Online Cafe Offers Support and Laughter


If you’re feeling a bit frazzled, you might decide to have a chat with a couple of friends over a cup of coffee, talk things over, and hopefully walk away feeling a bit more positive about life in general.

But in times of keeping our circles small, you may not want to run to the nearest coffee shop.  That’s where the “Frazzled Café Online” comes in.  It provides the equivalent of a neighborhood coffee shop in a virtual environment, where people who are feeling overwhelmed by the stresses and strains of everyday life can get together to share their experiences.

Since completing a Master’s degree in cognitive therapy, US born comedian Ruby Wax has written several self-help books with her distinctive style of humor. During book tours, she found that when the floor was thrown open for Q and A, audience members were keen to connect and talk about their issues.  It inspired her to start up a non-profit online coffee chat room. Meetings are held regularly to allow people the opportunity to speak out in a safe, non-judgmental environment. They are held on Zoom and each coffee chat begins with a short mindfulness meditation. The meeting is then thrown open to anyone wishing to share personal experiences.  

There are lots of laughs too…don’t forget Ruby is a comedienne.
