James has been the ear and guidance I've needed for longer than I realize. I look forward to our sessions always. Thank you for being there.

Changed my life. I mean it.

Jerome continues to use his years of experience and knowledge, to adeptly guide me through the maze of events and conditions present in my childhood which predisposed me to live my adult life contained by the unspoken expectations of my parent's. It has only been through therapy with Jerome, I feel my blinders have been taken off. I am 32 yrs old and I'm finally discovering who I've wanted to be all these years!

Thank you, Jerome, for offering another perspective that helped me realize there's so much more to my stage, all I needed to do was pull back my curtain

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Jerome. I feel like I have grown tremendously with his help. He has helped me heal from past trauma that has plagued my pass, but thanks to Jerome's help, it has no place for my future. He is very throughout, insightful, a great listener, encouraging, a great communicator, trust worthy, and adaptable, to name a few. I have had a few friends whom have noticed positive changes within myself since I started working with Jerome, and one of which that signed on to BetterHelp to work specifically with Jerome and 3 other friends whom signed on to BetterHelp as well!! I am very thankful to have Jerome work with me and I will continue to do so!

I'm very grateful to be matched with Jerome, as he's made sharing my truths easier & more comforting. He's very understanding & non-judgmental. He's clear, concise and administers healthy boundaries. As a patient I feel safe, seen, and validated!

Finding a therapist through BetterHelp was the most PAINLESS experience! I didn't have to "shop" & travel around. Having help picking the right therapist saved me so much time, energy, and etc...I'm satisfied...

Jerome has been a godsend, helping me during a tricky time in my life. He is down to earth, understanding, patient, calm, and so wise -- everything you'd want in a therapist. He cares about you. I've been working with him for months now and he's helped me more than he knows. He's helped me see the big picture, and supported me through navigating inner work and tackling the big goals in life. Thanks for being a great therapist, Jerome.

I couldn't recommend Mr. Wells any higher. He's highly prepared for every session. He is professional and caring and provides wisdom that I will take with me forever.

Written on Dec 08, 2021 after therapy with James for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Jerome has been an invaluable help and asset in my self healing journey following a very difficult time in my life. Having never been to therapy before I had some reservations before going in to it. Jerome quickly obliterated my doubts and I quickly realised going in to therapy was perhaps the best decision of my life. Jerome couldn't have been a better match. He's a great listener, exuding confidence and a warm down-to-earth personality that makes you feel like you're in great hands. I had a breakthrough in my very first session, which serves as a testament to his abilities. Oh, and he's pretty funny too!

Jerome is caring, kind and clear with his points. He’s said things in ways I needed to hear. Ways that made me gain a deeper understanding of certain concepts that I’ve struggled with for some time. Would definitely recommend to any one looking for someone to help you see truths with comforting guidance.

Mr Wells is a very understanding, compassionate and helpful therapist. He has helped me to find a solution to my problems and process very difficult emotions. The thing I appreciate the most is the consistent feedback that I receive every session. I have had one too many private AND NHS-funded therapists who have only listened but did not help me at all to solve any of my issues.
Jerome Wells is the person who has gained a lot of respect for me, so I don't doubt he can help other people.

It's been life changing. I'm much happier now ☺.

I was skeptical of this website, because I've only ever experienced therapy/counseling based on word-of-mouth recommendations. But, I got paired up with Jerome, and from the first session I felt more enlightened than I ever have in my life, honestly. Jerome is talented beyond understanding, was able to pull specific issues and solutions out of me within our first 1-hour session which blew me away, and provides actionable steps for me to take to get to where I want to go or need to be. I told Jerome that "I don't know what I don't know" and he nailed it by helping me discover those things that I didn't know about myself. Truly an expert, truly helpful, and highly recommend.

He’s helped me so much in navigating through my own ways of thinking. I feel safe, heard and supported by Jerome. Definitely one of my favourite people in the world.

Jerome is truly called to be a counselor. My first session with him was so uplifting; while also calling me to be the man God created me to be. I’m a plan it kind of person; Jerome immediately discerned my need and provide sound wisdom and tools to begin building my plan. Truly he is a blessing!!!

First time talking to a therapist made me feel very anxious but Jerome was kind, respectful, knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable.
