Helen was brilliant to work with. She let me flow at my own pace and made me feel safe and listened to.
I would highly recommend her.

Helen has been the most amazing therapist, she actively listens and takes a deep interest in you’re worries, she has helped me navigate through some tough situations, and has helped me understand my trauma through talking and some worksheets and has just been a great person to talk to. I highly recommend her for anyone with Trauma Anxiety ED or PTSD as she has really helped me come to terms and cope better with these things.

I haven't been with Helen too long but I find her to be really kind, knowledgeable, punctual, and better than therapists I have met in person! I was hesitant to try BetterHelp but I think it's an amazing platform for individuals who maybe for a long time had lack of access to services, live in rural areas, etc.
