My therapist is great.

Written by B.A. on Nov 18, 2021 after therapy with Alica for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Alica has spent the past 6 months developing a strong trust that has allowed me to open up to her and discuss some of my life's most pressing and complicated matters. As a member of both the Performing Arts and LGBTQ+ community, she has listened and learned about my lifestyle while providing a safe space to talk and tools to help reduce my anxiety, improve my relationships, and work on enjoying a higher quality of life.

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.
