These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Janet Hughes. 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.
Janet Hughes is one of the best out there. She completely matches my vibe. She does not sugar coat the truth and tells you exactly what you need to hear. Highly recommend
This is my first time doing therapy and I was worried that the match wouldn’t fit, but it did. Janet Hughes listens, has such an open mind but also knows how to center a conversation, which is so helpful and productive. I’m very pleased so far.
Janet is very responsive and knowledgeable and overall a great therapist. I have grown to know myself better and have learned new skills through this process. As a graduate student, having the flexibility to schedule telehealth is ideal because I can maximize the time.
Janet has so far been generous about her time both for scheduling purposes and also responding to me on unscheduled time when I have in the moment string emotional responses to events in my day to day life. I appreciate her level of understanding and feel hopeful about continuing my wellness journey with her and opening up more about myself, history and present circumstances.
The second we first spoke I knew I liked her. She has a warmth that is very welcoming. She has listened and offered advice when appropriate (had a previous therapist in the past that felt the need to talk about herself). Janet reaches out and it feels like communication is building naturally.
Janet is thoughtful and provides spot-on, expert guidance based on my unique needs. She listens attentively and has helped immensely with my mental health & relationship goals.
Janet is a great listener and she really knows how to connect. She has helped me tremendously with decreasing my anxiety, and I can tell that she is doing the great work she was purposed to do. Definitely a God-sent therapist!
I genuinely look forward to my weekly sessions with Janet. As someone who's historically had mixed feelings about therapy, she's changed some of my views. Janet has helped me to process through parts of my past as well as current struggles in a way that has helped me to grow as an individual. She has a wonderful personality and she makes me feel comfortable, as though I'm talking to a friend. Janet is always able to remember small details of things that I share, and I have never felt as though I'm being judged. She also balances listening vs when I want/need advice or her input. Wonderful therapist, I would definitely recommend Janet!
I’m very happy with Ms Janet. She shows you that she really does care. That’s hard to find
Janet has been a great help in navigating through rough times
She feels like a friend I can talk to about anything
Janet is amazing with her check ins and she has such a nice manner. She speaks with confidence, but listens and gives strategies.
Janet has never made me feel less than or judged me in anyway and has always made me valid in how I feel would strongly recommend
Janet is amazing. Our sessions together are always fun, and we get to a problem resolution quickly. She is supportive, caring, and incredibly intelligent. She is great at what she does!
Janet is amazing!!!
She is exactly who I needed and I look forward to her thoughtfulness, energy, and support!
Janet is the most amazing therapist I could ask for. She makes you open up so easily and you feel like you’re talking to your best friend. She’s also funny and never fails to put you in a good mood.
Affirming and understanding, patient, a lovely person all around.
That friend you can trust to tell anything to, but is also smart and insightful enough to guide and help ...that's Janet! Highly recommend Ms. Hughes.
Janet is excellent at what she does and has been super accommodating of my specific needs and goals. She's been open and attentive in every session we've had and is very quick to pick up on how you're feeling and what underlying issues may be present - she's great at matching your own energy. I highly recommend her!
Janet understands grief
Best experience I love gathering new tools
She is currently helping me through some tough times and it’s working. She reads into everything and boils it down to pinpoint what the main cause/issues are. Improvement began with the very first session, I highly recommend her because how she’s helping me is working!
Janet is a wonderful therapist...caring and knowledgeable.
Janet is a great listener and easy to talk to.
