Wayne is incredibly patient and does his best to understand your issues. He has a good sense of humor as well which makes it easier to open up about issues you're dealing with. And even if you don't have any issues, he'll often ask questions that make you look a bit deeper into yourself to find areas you can work on for self-improvement.

Wayne has been a great help in discovering the right path to take and in sorting through relationships. I was given very good advice and encouragement. It's nice to have another opinion from a counselor that cares about the needs.

Wayne's insight is like a fatherly voice speaking sense and logic into my thought process, calming and steering me back onto track whenever my mind wanders.

Wayne takes the effort to understand my situation and provide priceless insight, no matter how long and complex the email I send him every couple of days, which I appreciate very much.

Thank you, Wayne!

Wayne Hill is an excellent councelor, who makes a great effort to also understand very complex situations. My feeling is that he also has a very good and strong intuition about people, which improves with every iteration and which leads to great personal advice. For me, the sessions with Wayne were very helpful to go through a more difficult time, and his advice was good to keep things still realistic and not too negative, but actually realizing the potential that there was. I want to thank him very much for this!

At the beginning I was very skeptical about BetterHelp, but Wayne has been extremely supportive, has provided very spot-on insights that I never realized myself and has given me very good advice on how to change myself. I believe that he is such a good counselor because he loves what he does and he genuinely cares about the people he works with
