These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for James Costigan. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
I've come away from sessions with James feeling lighter, and more accepting of myself. I had never had a male therapist before, so I was a little cautious but he was patient and understanding about that. It worked for me to have this combination of addressing issues and then laughing to blow off steam. I've learned a lot and softened in my perspective throughout the process.
Working with James has been a transformational experience. It's so empowering to see sustainable personal growth for the first time with the help of therapy. His counseling style is like having an unconditional cheerleader. He's there for you in the pit and celebrates your progress! After EVERY session, I feel like I have the fuel to face my challenges independently.
Lovely and empathetic.
He is extremely professional,respectful and efficient
Very friendly and understanding. Also, experienced and can help and get the best out of you.
Working with James has been especially insightful and helpful. He has helped me see the patterns that have held me back in the past. Offering a safe enviorment that is judgement free and very open for sharing anything.
I have seen tremendous progress within myself in the span of a few months, and he has been a big part of my success. He offers a lot of helpful exercises and worksheets that are very helpful and easy to work through.
He is a very mindful therapist that takes your concerns into consideration, and he also shares a handful of books and podcasts that he thinks are suited for you.
I recommand attempting to work with him and hopefully you'll have great progress, as I had myself.
James is a wonderful therapist.
He has helped me realise issues that were holding back. He is guiding me along a personal journey of growth and understanding and I am very grateful to have him to talk to.
