These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Wayne Barnstone. 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.
Wayne is sharp, insightful, a great listener, and extremely knowledgable. He remembers important details about my life and connects dots between sessions. He develops practical solutions with me to combat some of my patterns of behavior/thinking. I look forward to my weekly sessions with Wayne.
Wayne is very thoughtful and insightful and has helped me be much more self reflective. I love working with him!
Wayne has a way with his words that make me become more aware of my actions, thus causing me to have epiphanies and realization I would not have otherwise had. Wayne offers PERSPECTIVE, which is key in understanding a situation from an objective point of view. Wayne is teaching me how to value my qualities, know my worth and help me to understand that every action has an equal and/or opposite reaction, taking it one step at a time.
I've been working with Wayne for about a month now and he's been very helpful with whatever I bring to him. He knows the right questions to ask and when to ask them. I have seen positive changes in the way I'm handling my life even in just this short time. You're awesome Wayne. Thank you!
Wayne is a genuine empath and offers me better ways to frame the negative thought patterns I have had for many years. He has helped me regain confidence in myself and my abilities. I did not really see value in pursuing therapy until I invested time into seeing Wayne on a weekly basis. I would recommend him to anyone else trying to regain confidence and perspective in their lives.
Wayne is an excellent therapist. I feel very fortunate to work with him and highly recommend him. He has really helped me navigate through some rough spots but also helped me recognize ways to celebrate my strengths and achievements.
I've now been working with Wayne for over 3 months now and have felt so much about myself and the world around me. I realized I've been dealing with a lot of anxiety that perhaps I needed to reframe to others to share and disclose to help rid myself of some of it. I am more confident and comfortable in relationships with my friends and family. I am more comfortable sharing what is affecting me and acknowledging that my feelings are valid. Talking with Wayne feels so easy and it feels like I'm talking about some of my deepest thoughts over coffee or something. He has also been flexible in terms of communication and responsiveness. Highly recommend as someone on this platform and being in the healthcare profession myself.
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!
Great manner, kind, helpful and supportive. Holds you accountable too.
Wayne Barnstone is a great counselor who's helped me immensely navigate a difficult time in my life. He's incisive and provides very thoughtful feedback that's gentle yet challenging when it needs to be. I highly recommend him!
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 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.
Wayne Barnstone is an excellent therapist and most of all a very kind person, I feel lucky I chose him. The pragmatic suggestions and object observations helped me.
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.
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.
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.
Wayne was very helpful, a great listener and had good advice and a fresh perspective on what I was going through.
I highly recommend Wayne, his timely attentive responses makes me feel important. I trust his professionalism and life knowledge in general
Wayne has helped me look at my life in a whole new light. I appreciate his checking in on me as it helps me remember I do count..
Wayne Barnstone is helpful and very quick to respond.
I sought counseling because I've been experiencing anxiety for the past few months. Wayne has been a life saver. He is so in tune with my feelings and helps me to relax. I really appreciate his insight into how I'm feeling. I feel like I've made so much progress with his help. Thank you!!!
Wayne is very solutions oriented, kind, and approaches therapy with both empathy and structure. There are techniques which he's given me to troubleshoot short term issues and also long term goals. It's been very helpful.
Experienced and helpful therapist. Look forward to continuing my sessions and learn more
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!
