Incredible listener, a kind soul , and a wonderful partner to work with. Thank you Percy
Percy is an incredible counselor and has made a tremendous impact in my life. His non-judgemental attitude and calm demeanor helps to make me feel safe to share anything with him. I feel so lucky to have found him and attribute much of where I am today because of our work together.
Responds quickly! Very understanding! Very nice and easy to talk to! Often checks on me to see how I'm doing!
Percy is awesome! At first I was anxious about working with a male counselor, but he makes me feel safe and most importantly, he validates my emotions. I do chat sessions, but he sends me feedback through a recording, and he has a calming voice. I feel like he gets it and has been a wonderful support to me so far in my counseling sessions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!
Percy is calm, considerate, and there when he needs to be. Highly recommend.
He’s the best of the best!!
Percy is an excellent therapist and shows genuine interest and concern for me throughout sessions, and helps me direct my thoughts in healthy ways. He listens intently and is mindful of the topics I wish to focus on. I would highly recommend him.
Percy is wonderful! Always listen and reads everything you say! He has improved my life so much!
I really appreciate my therapy sessions with Percy: he is very patient, present, and approachable. He provided helpful resources for my personal development after sessions too. As a client, I appreciate how he asks for clarification and how I felt about the sessions. Overall, my experience with Percy was positive and he reminded me that therapy can actually be a useful and positive experience.
My experience with Percival has been 10/10. I appreciate the insight into ways to look at what I share with him. Percival also provides a great amount of support and gentle guide towards moving forward through life and mental health. Ultimately I have found that with previous sessions with Percival I have grown in my mental health.
Percy is caring, patient, and oh so wise and our sessions together have been extremely helpful for my personal growth. I opt for phone sessions and it's always nice to hear his gentle voice. Percy also has a wonderful laugh which helps me to remember to laugh too. I am grateful to have met him and for having an option like BetterHelp available to me.
Percy does a great job of supporting the people he counsels in a calm, honest, and non-judgmental manner. He makes you feel comfortable and just made a difficult process easier and I appreciate it a great deal.
Percy is incredible. From the first message I sent, I could sense that he cared, and his responses were thoughtful and genuine. He has continued to ask me relevant questions, make me think about perspectives I genuinely wouldn't have thought of before, and gently push me to practice more self-care. He has addressed my general anxiety, depression, and phobias, which I had no idea could be addressed all at once, let alone in online therapy. He makes this process less scary than it typically would be, and I cannot thank him enough for that. I would recommend Percy to anyone and everyone!
He's really nice and supportive and good at asking thought provoking questions.
Throughout my life, I have hated therapists. With help from my SO, I decided to give it a chance. I'm so happy I did, and Percy was an amazing help! He talks to me as a human being and made me look at things a different way than has helped me through some really hard times.
Very personable and patient. I also appreciate that there is no pressure here and the online experience is vastly more helpful to me than making in person appointments that would probably be very over priced and not helpful at all with the additional stress of finding the time and funds to continue therapy consistently.
Percy is a great balance of challenging and nurturing. He is responsive and creative in his approaches. After having several therapists that I did not find helpful and almost giving up on therapy completely, I am very optimistic about the counseling I am recieving from Percy currently. I would highly recommend him.
Percy has been so helpful and I feel like I've made so much progress since I've started seeing him. He always responds quickly and always offers to make extra sessions if I need them. The handouts and books he's recommended have been super helpful and given me a different perspective on my issues. So glad I started working with him!
Percival responded within a couple hours after being paired with me. He always responded
promptly and always read everything that I said whether it was short or long. He had a lot of great handouts that he shared with me to understand depression better.
Percy has helped me get a better sense of direction and overcome some issues regarding depression and social anxiety. His personality made it very easy to talk to him and express my situation. He was also very considerate and practical with his approach. Huge thanks for all his help!
