These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Malik Akhtar. 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.

Malik is really insightful and it was great working with him - I liked his approach considering different methods to affect the issues. I would be keen to reconnect with Malik as a therapist in the future

Malik has been my therapist since September, and has been crucial in me 'handling' life. From dealing with limiting beliefs and navigating dating, to processing childhood issues and coping with lone adulting. My weekly sessions with Malik has been an essential part of my support system. He's unconventional and kooky (like myself) in all the right ways, and feels like you're talking to a wise friend who is always supportive of you, not some stuffy therapist who doesn't actually help you deal with the reality of situations. I want to recommend him to everyone, but I won't, because I want him to be my therapist for forever.

Malik has been great. Super warm and friendly and made me feel really comfortable from the beginning to share what was on my mind and heart.
