Dr A is a wonderful person and I strongly recommend her as she knows what my concerns are exactly and how to address them. She is very nice and understanding and has helped me a lot.

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

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!
