I am really grateful for the time Alica spent supporting me. Alica was flexible, personable and worked with me to find solutions for the problems I was facing but also just listen and reflect on my situations. I always felt respected and valued, and that Alica had genuine empathy. Thank you!

Alicia is great! I came to BetterHelp to find and gain more clarity within my chaotic life and Alicia has made me feel heard, listened, and accepted. Regardless of what we speak about I feel validated and I truly feel like I am receiving the help and the skills I need to pursue a better way of life. Alicia is amazing and her methods are great!

Alica is always gentle and understanding, but never patronising. and she manages to validate my feelings whilst also offering other insights into the situation. She is easy to talk to, even as someone who struggles to open up to people. Being a psychology student, I often struggle with councillors either acting uncomfortable when I bring up some of my course knowledge that I think is relevant, or trying to relate every session to a bit of research I may know, but Alica has never treated me as anything other than a normal client which is refreshing.

She has great insight and I think was perfectly matched for me for what I need
