These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Nicholas Hartley. 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.
Nicholas is very thoughtful and engaged throughout each session. He shows up prepared and makes sure to keep therapy a continuous process, referencing back to work in previous sessions. He is professional, a great listener, offers valuable advice, and knows how to navigate complex emotional experiences.

You will feel that he does not “try” to understand you, he just DOES. I used to stutter a lot and zone out in the middle of myself talking, but he waited patiently until I was done talking, and also understood it fully. He’s an awesome therapist!
