I am a BACP-registered therapist with 10 years of experience supporting people diagnosed with personality disorders, emotional regulation and interpersonal difficulties, anger management, and anxiety and depression. Counseling those who have experienced family-related issues, poor self-esteem, and physical, emotional, and sexual abuse has taught me the importance of active listening and compassionate empathy.
I have spent the past 3 years volunteering at The Listening Place charity, an organization focused on creating a safe and welcoming atmosphere for individuals with active suicidal thoughts. My time at TLP has allowed me to support many individuals who have suffered from intensely challenging negative thoughts, fears, and trauma.
The opportunity to sit with individuals who have endured extremely arduous and demanding experiences led me to pursue further training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy with The British Isles DBT National Training Team. Working as a therapist on the Mind-Reframed DBT team for over a year, I have gained valuable experience guiding clients who struggle with emotionally unstable personality disorder and/or emotional dysregulation. Along with a genuine concern for my clients, I enjoy helping those under my care to develop self-esteem, overcome despair, and restore hope.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Mike DePinto. 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.
Helpful and friendly, Mike is very understanding and I trust in his expertise.
In my experience, Mike has been extremely organised and punctual in responding to any messages I've sent or appointments I've made. He approaches me as an equal, makes me feel listened to, and provides insight into problems I might have. His anecdotes, depth of understanding, and unique style reflect his experience. This is my first time interacting with Betterhelp and longer term counselling. But my expectations have been exceeded by Mike's care. I'd highly recommend him.
Mike is an exceptional therapist. He’s helping me organise my thoughts, been incredibly supportive and got me to challenge my beliefs. I understand myself and my experiences better than ever . The process has exceeded my expectations and I’m finding our work together is shaping my life a positive and meaningful way. Thank you Mike
