James is definitely a quality therapist. He’s a great listener, has a good heart, and really went above and beyond for me. Highly recommended!

I was in a low place before starting betterhelp and needed someone to talk to and reaffirm my situation. James gave me the help I needed to be my authentic self and feel confident. Good luck to those who are starting their therapy journey. James will be a great resource for you.

As always I am so happy with James and his ability to instantly address my concerns and help guide me through my emotions. He continues to be a huge factor in my recovery and I owe a lot of my daily happiness to our therapy sessions. James, and BetterHelp, have been incredible throughout my journey. I cannot say thank you enough!

James is thoughtful and really takes the time to listen and understand my issues. He makes informed recommendations and doesn't push anything if I'm not comfortable with it. Love speaking with James and appreciate his genuine caring attitude and demeanor.

James has been great! He really listens and cares. He allows himself to be vulnerable as well and makes me feel like he can relate to the same problems I’m facing. He uses the time set for us very well and gets right to the core of the problem and provide doable solutions and insights. It’s been really great working with him.

Thanks for being there James.

Written by C.I. on Jun 12, 2021 after counseling with James for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

We have met on some of my lowest days while I was dealing with living with an alcoholic. From talking and the worksheets I was provided with , he helped me feel confident in the decisions I was making to better my entire family. It even included having my Fiancé enroll into a outpatient treatment program. He is now 40days sober. Additionally, I’m learning to control my emotions as James is a great listener, which in return helps me find myself through this journey.

James is SOO amazing!! I am SO lucky to have such an amazing counsellor who is SO supportive and SO easy to talk too and he always validates my feelings! I feel so comfortable talking to James and opening up to him. He has helped me SO much when it came to healing, over coming fears and beliefs about myself and he has helped me become the best version of myself and to gain the confidence to really go after what I want in life! I am truly so lucky to have come across him and to have him as my counsellor because he has changed my life and has helped me shift my mindset in such an amazing ways!

Thoughtful and helpful with his process.

Initially when I signed up for counselling I found James' level of enthusiasm in his introduction message to be a little much, this was due to the state I was in and the limited level of positivity I could sincerely accept from people at the time. As time has gone on I have found James' level of enthusiasm and passion for helping people to be genuine and earnest, and through him I have come some way in accepting more positivity into my life. I still feel a have a distance to go, but James has already given me the fundamental tools to help myself and to live my life in a more fulfilling and satisfying way.

James is very good. He actively listens and, like others have noticed, gets to the heart of an issue. I have found the resources he sends extremely useful. It’s such a relief to have some support. Thank you

I’ve met with James twice so far and I can only say that I’m so happy to have him by my side! He is most definitely helping me to put things into perspective and learn new ways to deal with situations that arise.
Being an English speaker living in a non English speaking country, BetterHelp and James have been fantastic! Thank you so much!!!

Written by D.A. on Mar 04, 2021 after counseling with James for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and compassion fatigue

James is very patient and understanding and has a unique ability to get the the heart of an issue.

I always feel respected and approached in a non judgmental way. He has a repertoire of solutions to resolve situations and tailors it to the needs of the individual.

He listens to what you have to say and has a very strong ability to empathise with the problems you are facing.

Overall, I would thoroughly reccomend James to anyone who is going through a tough time and needs some sound advice to resolve their situations and change their perceptions.

James is a great gentleman. He does not judge you and he is much more pro-active than other therapists I have seen before. I strongly recommend him if you are a man going through a tough time. He is passionate about his work and it shows in his commitment to respond to your messages quickly.
