These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Jean-Pierre De Oliveira. 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 have been seeing therapists on and off for nearly 12 years; never have I had a more efficacious therapist. JP is one of the most compassionate and impactful therapists I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I came to him with a handful of issues and one by one we've been able to process them and remedy them. JP has developed a wonderful capacity to know when to be compassionate towards your emotions, and when to challenge your thoughts, this has what has enabled him to have such a great impact on me. That being said after working with him on a weekly basis for nearly a year now we have finally made enough progress that he has told me that I don't need him anymore. I could not be more elated. Please do yourself as favor and utilize JP. I hope you can also achieve the same amount of success I have had with him.
JP was there in the most difficult time and challenge in my life and helped me navigate through it. He was there for me always even whenbhe was abroad on vacation, he is the most smartest therapist I've ever had, he is professional, compassionate, patient, efficient and practical. He helps YOU know yourself better and find the best solution for your challenges with smart assignments and questions he has for you. Another thing I really like about him is that he is not stucked in the past and your childhood. Although he admits the effects of upbringing in your adulthood but never locks you in there and focuses on future and your free will and capability to change it. He helps you to see good side/outcomes of bad events without a false positive attitude. He is supportive and practical. I definitely recommend him to everyone who needs to become a better person with a better life.
Jean-Pierre is absolutely amazing. I came to him 6 months ago with a number of issues and concerns that I wanted to work through in my relationship and personal life. Throughout the 6 months JP was observant, helpful, considerate and just fantastic. I’m definitely in a much better space than I was 6 months ago and I’m forever grateful for his sessions
I began working with Jean-Pierre De Oliveira a few months ago and it has been very helpful. His style is very direct and he is not shy about giving his opinions which can be of great use. He has helped me with the issues I came to therapy with and I will be forever grateful for his insight. I definitely recommend Jean-Pierre!
JP has been an instrumental force in my life these past 6 months. Without his help nor our weekly sessions, I wouldn't be the healthy person I am today. I'm so grateful to him, his encouragement and his brilliance.
Jean-Pierre was really helpful and understanding, giving me a clearer way to express how I feel, and making me feel more comfortable about the way I see the world,
I strongly recommend !
Jean-Pierre enfin une belle âme a notre service! Je suis une personne hypersensible à tout et cet homme est VRAI. J'ai seulement fait 4 semaines et juste ma première séances on n'as débloqué une choses énorme chez moi. Mon intention avant notre rencontre, étais d'avoir un échange de discussion et je l'ai eu! J'aime votre ouverture d'esprit et ton non jugement est rassurant. Vous êtes le seul thérapeute qui m'as pas juger et que t'es intention de bienveillance est vraiment la. Vous êtes la pour vraiment nous aidé a cheminer et je ressens ta passion de vouloir aider. Merci pour tout! J'apprécie vraiment ;) On se revois bientôt!
I accidentally answered “strongly disagree” for a question and meant to click “strongly agree.” It wouldn’t let me go back and change it. JP is amazing!
JP es un pilar fundamental en mi vida ahora mismo .
Semana tras semana, aprendo algo nuevo de mi y algo nuevo de la vida gracias a él , y gracias a eso soy capaz de sobrevellar mi ansiedad de otra manera .
Me siento muy cómoda cuando hablo con el , siento que en verdad me escucha y presta atención a lo que digo , lo cual agradezco mucho .
Mi ansiedad se ha reducido mucho desde que empecé a tener sesiones con el , y sinceramente estoy muy contenta de haber podido contactar con el y elegirlo como mi terapeuta .
JP is fantastic
I've worked with JP for 8 months and my progress over that time has been amazing. He's helped me on a difficult journey of learning how to love myself and improve my self esteem. He's taught me how to forgive myself and has always been there for me. He's such a warm person and puts me completely at ease. I can't thank him enough for the help he has given me.
JP is a gifted therapist. After seeing multiple therapists I'm so lucky to find someone who I feel understands, cares and listens. Hes also been able to provide me with feedback and skills to empower me.
JP is an exceptional therapist who is profoundly supportive, caring and wise. I feel so fortunate to experience JP’s generous insights in our sessions and between them as well. JP continues to enrich my life with his texts, voice messages and joyful music videos to boot.
JP has helped me tremdously this past year. I am more confident, and feel as I have more control over my life and my mental health. He is great at listening, at offering solid advice, and at recommending further reading and activities that helps one focus and overcome what they're struggling with. I could not recommend him enough.
I started working on myself over 6 months ago. Jean-Pierre is my first therapist ever. People often told me that you '' don't automatically find THE match'' when it come to work with first therapist and that I might want to experience with a few to find the one that will suit me. LET ME TELL YOU : JP is the match, no questions ask.
He is very reliable, and always answers my text or request for last minute call, when I needed it. Jean-Pierre is very honest and will help you see the world with a different perspective. I can't stress enough to work with JP
"JP" - Jean De Oliveira - is a great listener and an awesome human being. He makes it easy to share any insecurities, trauma, or shadows of ourselves with him. When we started working, I was in a stressful time and had many family issues - I was sad, depressed, frustrated, and out of touch with my genuine self. I didn't have any boundaries established and didn't feel like I was accomplishing anything with my life. As soon as I started my therapy with JP, I began to see why I was feeling that way, why I was reacting the way I was reacting, how past experiences were affecting my present and many other things.
If you are searching for a psychologist that you can talk with openly, feel confident that he is listening, and hold you accountable, Jean is all these things. He truly cares, plus he is funny. For me, his sense of humor is an excellent quality because it makes me connect with him and makes me feel less alone. I feel that I'm back home to myself again and have new insights to keep going and create the life that I want.
Thank you, JP!!!
When you need a friend who is knowledgeable and experienced to talk about very personal things that are troubling you and yet balk at the idea of a formal mental health visit or psychiatry or psychology appointment then Better Help offers a very fine middle way. Not at all invasive. An easy to engage starting point to begin a process of reflection and possibly healing.
JP has listened to me and encouraged me. Being able to speak French with him was a big help. And his French is really good. With is humour, he created a relaxed atmosphere during our session. It was really nice to work with him.
Jean De Oliveira is both attentive and knowledgeable. I am encouraged by our time together and feel like the work we are doing is collaborative and geared towards building stronger behaviors and managing past traumas. Thank you JP.
He’s absolutely fantastic, when he can keep my girls straight. But that’s mostly my fault. ;)
He made me feel comfortable right away. He made me feel understood and I feel confident that our sessions will help me on my self care and self growth journey
I don't know where I would be without JP. He's enabled me to completely change the direction of my life. I'm happier, more confident, and more content than I've ever been due to the work he's done with me.
JP is an incredible listener. Our sessions create a safe space for me to express myself and talk out some of my thought processes. JP is a kind and gentle person that helps you feel comfortable from the first session. He also tailors sessions to you and is completely open to discussing anything.
I started working with Jean a few months ago. I was experiencing a high level of anxiety and felt stuck in my professional life. Through different discussions with Jean, I realized that my ADHD was causing a lot of the issues I experienced in my daily life. The countless projects initiated but never completed, the relationships issues, the difficulties to unwind... all of these were ADHD related. Thanks to his expertise with ADHD, Jean spotted it very quickly and offered support to help manage the symptoms. He was accommodating, available and provided me with insightful advice. I definitely recommend Jean as a therapist, especially for people who face ADHD related issues.
JP was helpful in helping me navigate my primary care doctor and Kaiser system and it also was nice to speak with a therapist who is from Europe and could understand the European perspective like me both culturally and in terms of differences in the health care system and values!
Jeans advice has helped me get a positive outcome when dealing with a salary review at work and helped me to find a good approach at putting a good case forward to my boss. As well as helping me being able to see myself for my worth in the work that I do.
When I initially came to JP, I was in a very dark place emotionally. Had a lot going on in both my family and relationships that left me feeling very empty. JP’s advice and methodology towards therapy helped me discover a lot of things about myself, and I have grown in ways I never thought possible. If you were to compare myself when I first started treatment vs. how I am now, it is like night and day. I owe JP a lot for where I am in my life right now, and he is the first therapist I was able to open up to like this. He understands the dynamic of a minority (especially Muslim) family in ways many people can’t, and I highly recommend him as a therapist.
JP is amazing and I look forward to continuing my sessions w his knowledgeable and compassionate manner
I really enjoy my therapist. He is amazing
Jean speaks French and understand the culture. He is patient and easy going. I feel safe and confident talking to him.
JP is unlike any other therapist I’ve worked with - he’s straight to the point and doesn’t sugar coat. He provides the perspective you need but are afraid of taping into because of the expectation society puts on you.
I have throughly enjoyed seeing him every week and the continuous support he provides in between video sessions are incredibly insightful and useful. JP wants me to win, to achieve my goals and live my best life.
I’m on my way to doing just that, thanks to JP!
Jean has been a pleasure to work with and has been the best therapist that I have worked with. He keeps it real and approaches things in a very logical manner. He is insightful, informed, and helpful in varied aspects. He also provides some pretty great resources. Admittedly, his style may not work for everyone (keeping it real/honest) but if it works for you, you will see progress in ways that you might not have thought possible.
I thoroughly enjoy everything about JP’s methods. What sticks out for me is his incredibly honest demeanor and his accuracy. He reads the room in a way that no one I know does and will find a solution for everything, always. My quality of life has significantly increased since the beginning of my sessions with him and I plan on sticking around just to see how good it can get.
Jean De Oliveira is kind and makes talking to him easy! If you're nervous about opening up, he will definitely make it easy for you to talk.
I will be forever grateful that I picked JP as my counselor. I have been so fortunate to have him by my side as I work through the most difficult time in my life. He is insightful, has an encyclopedic knowledge of his field, shows a genuine interest in me and my well being, makes himself available whenever I need him and has even managed to make me laugh when I least feel like doing so. He has made me feel so well supported and has given such good advice that I know I will not only get through this terrible time in my life healthy but I will come out the other side stronger. I cannot recommend him enough.
Jean is an amazing counselor who has really turned me around on my views on therapy. He has taken the time to listen to my issues and has helped me see my way through some issues that I have and gives a good solid perspective that encourages growth rather than expecting or demanding growth. His kindness, generosity, patience, and drive to understand the core of what is going on has been life changing for me. I cannot recommend him enough to anyone looking for an experienced counselor in LGTQ+ issues and he has gone above and beyond in helping me during my transition.
Jean has been incredible to work! Working with Jean has helped me in very large ways. While working with him the awful things that happen in this world don’t physically cripple me. They still hurt and I still feel them, but I’m able to be angry and sad about them but continue in my everyday life. He is wonderful and whomever gets the pleasure of working with him is very fortunate.
Hello guys! I personally have never gone through therapy before and this was my first time. Jean has a very welcoming personality and he was all ears towards his clients. He’s very knowledgeable and very passionate about helping his clients. So, I highly recommend him, you will not regret it!
Jean De Oliveria (or JP), was a great counselor to meet and work with. He gave the best advice, provided encouragement, and had a great sense of humor. Without a doubt, I recommend him for assistance
Jean is amazing at understanding me and guiding me through the right direction. He give me plenty of tips and help me control my emotion. I would definitely recommend him as a therapist.
Jean is a great therapist. I previously had a few therapists on BetterHelp that weren’t good and didn’t seem to fit in as mental health professionals, but Jean is great. He’s present at every session, very supportive, 10/10 much better experience than I had with others. Would definitely highly recommend to anyone.
Jean De Oliveira is a really good counselor, he has been and he is still a very good help for me. He gave to me really good advises and many steps to feel better in my life.
Jean De Oliveira is truly a comfort and such a beacon understanding. He listens well and truly remembers the things you speak about and is very good at kindly keeping you accountable. He is always prompt with responding to messages and nothing is ever "too much". He has so many different kinds of tools to help his patients, from books, movies, articles, interactive websites. He is truly the real deal and is trustworthy and creates space for you to speak, with no judgement. I would recommend him x100.
Jean-Pierre helped me understand myself better after just a couple of weeks of therapy with him. He is a good listener and gave me many resources and suggestions to help me. The conversation feels warmer and more human with him, even though it's an online therapy.
JP is also one of the few therapists on this app who speaks French, merci :)
I have had all my therapy sessions with Jean. He has been very kind, and has helped me greatly.
Jean De Oliveira is very kind, warm natured, astute, has excellent insight which had proven to be incredibly beneficial for me with help with processing trauma. He offers practical advice, has sent me links to books, websites, even things on YouTube that he felt would be a help to me. I've learnt things about myself that I didn't know from Jean. It has been an interesting journey that he is helping me navigate. He has a lovely makeup. Very kind and empathetic; a sense of humour which helps lighten moments in a session. He did research about a certain topic I had been speaking about which surprised me that he would take the time and trouble and the initiative. He is very accommodating with session times. He is genuine and truly cares about his clients. He is an absolute blessing, non judgmental. I'm very thankful to Jean and highly recommend him.
JP has been a huge force in helping me understand myself and my issues better. I started therapy a half a year ago and ever since I swapped therapist to JP I feel like I have been making progress.
Not only does he understand me but he also puts everything in a way that I can understand myself. Overall he is also a really funny and empathetic guy where it's very easy to just share all your thoughts and feelings.
I can recommend JP if you are looking for someone who will actually care about making your life a better place.
I am grateful to find a good counselor that listens to me, and offers healthy suggestions.
Jean has been very helpful. Great listener and very willing to help me decide if I'd be a good betterhelp counselor. I have my LPCC like Jean and he was able to share his own experience working as an online therapist both for BetterHelp and other organizations. I'd highly recommend him to others and would certainly consider reaching out to him again if I had another need for my own personal counseling.
It’s good to be listened and talked to by him.
Jean has been an amazing help, quickly recognizing my challenges. I feel I have made great progress, as his guidance has provided me with the clarity I was missing.
Jean De Oliveira , has helped me quite a lot in learning to set proper boundaries and have the confidence to enforce them. I would recommend him to anyone struggling with family , friends, work colleagues.
Jean De Oliveira has been a rock that grounds me in a really troubling time. He is attentive, honest and helpful. I would recommend his counsel to anyone struggling.
