Leah is great she took the time to listen to me and give me constructive ways to help myself or try and make the situation better. Love working with her.

Leah has really helped me to process my feelings and emotions. She’s helped me realise a lot of my unhealthy behaviours and provides me with practical techniques to reduce them and helps me find ways to manage my stress and anxiety. I feel like I’m in a totally different headspace now compared to a few months ago when I started working with Leah, and I’m super grateful for that. Leah’s kind, approachable, easy to talk to, she leaves space for me to process what we’ve spoken about, it’s been really easy to connect with Leah and I’m just chuffed that the app paired us! Thank you Leah and thank you BetterHelp!

Leah is professional and business like, but also very friendly and relaxed. She is insightful and honest. I really appreciate how she reframes things in a helpful way. She shows interest in my wellbeing and asks direct but non-threatening questions. I'm getting a lot out of our sessions and I feel lucky to have been paired with her.
