Written by A.L. on Oct 02, 2019 after counseling with Wayne for 1 year and 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and parenting issues

Wayne has been there through some of the most difficult moments of my life so far. Breakups, big moves, career changes, loss of friends, everything you could imagine to happen to someone has happened to me in the span of a year, and I couldn't have done it without Wayne. He's empathetic, nonjudgemental, funny, and professional. I highly recommend Wayne!

As a newbie to therapy, I’m very glad I had the opportunity to work with someone like Wayne. He prompted me to explore questions I had never considered and they’ve helped me dig deep into where my insecurities come from. I’ve found every session with him super useful. It feels like I’m talking to a long-time friend.

Wayne addresses and listens to all of my concerns. He provides alternatives and allows me to arrive to my own conclusion. I’ve changed a lot over time. Thank you to Wayne for changing my life in a year! I see and feel the change.

Wayne has been understanding, kind, and most importantly to me, he is intelligent. He asks questions that help me get into the tough stuff. He has so far been very helpful and I am usually pretty closed off. So, thank you to Wayne and I am so glad I gave BetterHelp a shot.

It is my great pleasure to recommend Mr. Wayne Barnstone. He is truly by far the best therapist that I have ever had, and I'm am very lucky that I have found him on this forum. It's taken me a long time to find a good therapist, especially after my former therapist retired and I feel that I have gotten very lucky. I'm so grateful. In such a short period of time he has helped me with many issues. I look forward to my road of wellness with Mr. Wayne Barnstone. Thank you very much!

Wayne is both intellectually and emotionally intelligent, and is an extremely nurturing counselor. He is also a totally reliable, flexible and communicable person. It is easy to discuss very abstract things with him in simple terms. He has demonstrably changed my life.

Written by A.A. on Jun 13, 2018 after counseling with Wayne for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, sleeping, self esteem, and career

Wayne is a thoughtful and conscientious therapists that listens well. I felt comfortable speaking to him about any subject and he really helped me a few times to work through some complicated issues. I hope to maintain contact with him and would absolutely revisit working together again.

I’ve tried working with a couple counselors before. I honestly feel that Wayne is the best I’ve worked with so far in terms of being patient, calming, and reassuring.

Written by K.A. on Apr 13, 2018 after counseling with Wayne for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, parenting, self esteem, and anger

Wayne has a very calm but often humorous approach which not only helps to relax me at times, but reminds me that it is OK, and even helpful to laugh! He often poses questions that really make me dig deeper, and I almost always come out the other side with a new perspective and a better outlook. I feel that Wayne is a great listener, who "gets me", knows when I'm a little (or a lot) "off" and he has helped me feel more comfortable in my own skin, and to recognize who I am and who I want to be.

I am so grateful to have Wayne as my therapist. Its been only few weeks but I have already improved a lot. Wayne understand and helps me guide through my complex and difficult situations. He is very calm and knowledgeable. He gives me personal examples, quote from the topic's research so not only I get the personal thoughts, but I also get to become familiar with the education/science behind the actions I do and how I can work to improve it. Thanks a lot Wayne! I am very hopeful to recover from my current situation and become the person I want to be with your help!
