These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Nawal Aboulhosn. 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 joined BetterHelp in August 2020 and was matched with Dr Aboulhosn almost immediately. Dr A has been very wonderful and she was very gentle with me as we worked together to resolve the issues I was having. She listened to me and gave me guidance to raise my self-esteem and take charge of my life. She has also taught me how to set boundaries and followed up with me on the goals I set together with her every session. The worksheets given to me to complete also opened my mind as we went through my entries and I have a more positive perspective of life now as compared to before. My relationship with my family and my husband has also improved greatly after I followed Dr A's advice.
I am very glad that I took the step to join BetterHelp, otherwise I would not have met Dr A. After almost 2 years, I feel ready to step out into the world on my own again but I will not hesitate to seek out Dr A if I ever need her again in the future. She is more than just a therapist, she is also my family now. I will highly recommend Dr A to anyone who needs a helping hand.
I started my therapy sessions with Dr.Nawal Aboulhosn about 5 months ago. Looking back into those 5 months, I feel it's the best decision I've made. The best of what Dr.Nawal had helped me achieve, was developing my ability in decision-making & in the most critical decisions in my life. She had helped me dig deep into what I really want in life, and follow my passion in this life.
In those past months in therapy, & with Dr.Nawal's knowledge, expertise, values, great listening skills, openness to cultures, & most importantly, her care & genuine interest in helping me, I've finally managed to reach the state of peace & love that I've always wanted to reach.
Can't thank her enough!
After having my first session with Dr. Aboulhosn, I felt a calming vibe that was very much needed and appreciated. I felt comfortable and at ease in sharing. I am looking forward to continue working on myself with Dr. Aboulhosn.
I would like to say that after around two months of therapy with dr. Nawal i started to find my inner peace that i've lost 15 years ago because of anexiety & depression. And even thogh i took alot of pills in the past, but i found that therapy is the real cure.
The changes that i'm experiancing today is dramatic & drastic.
What i've practiced during my therapy with her, is to look into the root of the problems instead of wasting time & effort on dealing with the symptoms ( which is basicly what the pills do).
Beside that she is also a good listener, kind hearted, supportive & she really cares about your well being.
Many thanks, love & appreciation to her efforts.
Dr. Aboulhosn is extremely caring while still being straight to the point. She helped me work through my partners issues with alcoholism and I feel like I have benefited greatly from my sessions with her. I’d strongly consider reconnecting with her if I were to need therapy again. She’s like talking to both your mom and your best friend at the same time. She helped me work through one of the worst periods of my life for 6 months and I’m very grateful I got the chance to work with her!
Dr. A is an AMAZING therapist. Very knowledgeable and very flexible. She is open minded and incredibly educated and also very nice. Soooo happy that i got assigned Dr. Aboulhosn.
She’s amazing! I would recommend her to anyone! She has helped me through so much!
She really understands what I need and want. The worksheets she sends me make me think and reflect on my current state as well.
Getting Dr Aboulhosn as my counselor is what made my experience with BetterHelp such a success story. She really makes me feel heard and understood and helps me to see things from a perspective that is more compassionate and forgiving toward myself and others that I would not have thought of on my own. I highly recommend her.
I’m so so lucky that I’m getting to work with Dr Aboulhosn! I started my first session crying because I felt so hopeless and i felt like I could never get rid of jealousy and anxiety.... two sessions later, and I’ve been able to integrate techniques that Dr Aboulhosn taught me and I felt like I was able to live a day free from anxiety.. for the first time ever! I’m so thankful that I found her and I’m beyond excited to keep working with her and see what other huge improvements we can make in my life :)
Dr. Aboulhosn is great! I’ve benefited and enjoyed all of our communication. She’s not only a great counselor, but a great person. That’s my opinion. You can tell that she loves what she does. I don’t know how she treats her other clients, but I have a pretty good idea that she treats all of us differently based on what we all need. She’s great at her job! I’d love to be her friend in real life! Haha
I really like my counselor she's amazing
Dr. Aboulhosn has given me useful, practical strategies that fit in nicely with my yoga-based practices. (I am a yoga teacher and studio owner.)
She also relates to me on a personal level and understands how important my family is to me.
I have been speaking to Dr Nawal Aboulhosn since the start of August and she has not only given me such great advice and calmed me down during some tough times recently, but also been very kind and understanding in listening to some of the issues I have had with anxiety & anger. She has been very patient with me in listening to me and spoken to me very well in regards to issues I have had with work, family and a relationship with my ex-girlfriend that ended recently. I have opened up to her about a lot of personal matters and she has reassured me each time to be grateful for what I have in my life, what I should be positive about and how important it is to keeping working on myself. She has helped me work on some fundamental issues I did not realize were so serious and has kept driving me on to be a better person for myself. I would definitely recommend her to people who need to speak to someone with whatever issues they are having. She is a great person with a good heart and helped improve my self-confidence when it has been low in recent times!
