Berekat truly listens and has an exceptional ability to parse together any issues that may seem like a complex continuum that his client may be dealing with. And that is very important, to have in a therapist. I am moved to say that he is a very talented one!

After a brief course of therapy a few years ago I was hesitant to try it again. I’m so glad I did as Berekat has been such an amazing counsellor. After 2 months of sessions with Berekat he is always attentive, patient and a great listener who helps guide me to look at things from a different perspective. I appreciate his guidance and would highly recommend him to others.

He is a great therapist! He has helped me A LOT through my journey. I'm sure other therapists are great, but he is one of a kind! He listens and lets me share until I'm done speaking. He asks questions respectively. I really enjoy our sessions.

I've had a few sessions with Berekat and he is extremely helpful and understanding. In only a few weeks, he has definitely helped me to understand things/circumstances in my life better and how to take an active, healthy approach.

I’d happily recommend Berekat to anyone, he’s attentive and gives helpful and thoughtful responses. He is positive and very easy to talk to, and never once felt unsafe in opening up in therapy.

Berekat is a fantastic counselor who is able to convey ideas in a way that is not only understandable but also in a way I can put things into action for myself.

In the few sessions that I've had with Berekat so far, he's been able to help me change my thought patterns. It's refreshing to have someone who can actually take the garbled thoughts thrown at him and turn them into an actual problem that can be molded and addressed. Thanks Berekat!

Berekat is an excellent counsellor. He has a very gentle approach and is very calm and compassionate. I have had many profound insights through our conversations that have helped me to move closer to balance. He is patient and and spends time to consider the challenges I am facing before responding. Our sessions have been very valuable for me. I highly recommend him.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Berekat. He understood where I was coming from, and was able to speak my language from the very start. I am extremely grateful for the level on which we connected, as well as the wonderful relationship we built together.

I have only had two sessions with Berekat but find his manner makes it really easy to open up. I genuinely feel listened to and genuinely believe that he is making an effort to help me and not just going through the motions. I feel like his advice to me has been sound and that my sessions have already had a positive impact.
