These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for James Wells. 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 only had 3 sessions with James so far, 3 of the best sessions in my life I did not even know I needed so badly.
James is patient, listens, understands my concerns and profers the best solutions!
My therapy experience so far has been miles ahead of what I thought it would be.
Thank you James! You’re really great at what you do!

A great therapist who deserves all accolades

Written on Jan 20, 2024 after therapy with James for 2 years on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I was expecting this process to move much slower as I often feel misunderstood and not great at verbalizing my emotions, history, and relationships. I'm honestly shocked at how well and quicly James understands me, can help me articulate, and he either has an incredible memory or keeps detailed notes as he ties in previous conversations we have had with precise accuracy.
I've been throughly impressed with his rapid assessment and feel like we got on the right road right off the bat. Very fortunate to have been matched with him as my therapist. thank you~

Jerome has played a huge role in my personal development! He has helped me set much needed boundaries with others, helped me realize the value of loving myself and showing myself grace, amongst others. He helped me navigate the most challenging periods of my life and I’m very thankful for Jerome!

The best! I had such a great first time therapy with Jerome. He has given me the tools to empower and respect myself. Thank you so much.

It continues to surprise me, the lengths to which I've kept myself blind to myself. Thank you Jerome for respectfully and kindly guiding me to see how I'm holding myself back. With your sessions I've been able to uncover the ropes I've been tying myself down with and to climb towards my potential.
