It's like a psychological detox!
Immediately I felt a lot better after my first session.
Nancy is the best and I have really enjoyed working with her. She’s easy to talk to and has great techniques to tackle problems. Highly recommend.Amin P.
SHLA was helpful in making my husband and I understand each other better. After 25yrs of marriage, we have started having issues and we were able to work things out with the help of Nancy.Mildred W.
Been coming here a couple of months. Started seeing Wes and he’s been solid support. In that time I’ve built the confidence I never had, understand things better, express myself better, and realize I haven’t experienced life. I’ve been given the tools and I’m learning to use them.
Easy to talk to, great direction… gives hope. I’m happier, clearer in thoughts, just getting this excitement to experience more out of life. Don’t hold yourself back, this network is awesome and Wes is someone I’d recommend.
This place has changed my life. I’ve never been the type of person to seek help but I was at a very low point in my life where I just couldn’t do it on my own anymore. I began to see Nancy for therapy. She’s really awesome & her method of helping you is personable & direct. She’s never made me feel uncomfortable or embarrassed to share anything with her. She’s always made me feel like my emotions are valid & helps me understand where they are coming from. Nancy’s taught me how to change my way of thinking & because of that I have seen an improvement in my mental health. Me & my fiancé have also seen Wes for couples therapy & he’s been great as well. He’s taught us communication tools that have helped us grow as a couple. I would definitely recommend people to check this place out.Adrianna D.
I really do not know how to thank Self Help enough for how they have been able in such a short period of time change things in my life. I went in feeling nervous about the process but after two minutes I was able to feel comfortable with them. They allowed me to start seeing the real me and feeling happy again. I was so happy with the outcome of one session I brought my 12-year-old daughter who seemed to be slipping away from me and not communicating with me which as a mother scared me. I can honestly say that after just one visit with my practitioner I can see the such a major improvement in her she is smiling again and so am I! The words thank you is really not enough to say but I will anyway Self Help Thank so much!Elizabeth G.
What a wonderful experience by really enlightened souls. I actually came here a few months ago and was looking for help with relationship counseling at the time. I spoke with them, and they were very informative, answered all of our questions and we booked an appointment for our first session. Considering that I and my partner were on the verge of calling it quits after 10 years my heart was in so much despair. I found Self Help through a quick Google search and they have amazing reviews on Yelp and now I know why.
After just a few sessions I started to feel calmer, more in control and back to feeling like my true self. The relief of finally having someone listen to both our sides and creatively come up with solutions that were very unique to our lives was nothing short of a miracle!
I’ve been to therapy in the past (my experience with traditional counseling was not that great). I am so fortunate to have found this hidden little gem and they have another office in the city of Newport Beach also. You would never guess that there are amazing healers behind the walls of this office. You should give them a call and schedule an appointment to go in asap, you will be surprised at the level of expertise and wisdom they will shine on your life.Bailey R.
From someone who is in the same field, I really enjoyed my conversations with my practitioner. He is very knowledgeable and knows how to ask the right questions to uncover that negative subconscious motivation. From one professional to the next, he is great!Maria M.
All I can say is AMAZING! Everyone I’ve met here is like an Angel sent from heaven. I originally came in for hypnosis to rid myself of anxiety and to get off my medication, since I was going through a difficult relationship at the time. I was totally blown away since I’ve been trying to get off meds for years and thanks to Self Help LA I am finally free!
I feel so much healthier now, they explained how my body can heal itself, I received nutrition advice, cleared up a food allergy and have even lost 16lbs!! I am so much happier now I just don’t know how to thank them enough. This has truly changed my life.
I sent my sister here and she signed up for life coaching and we even attended some of the seminars they offer. Everything they do here is top notch and you wouldn’t really know that they have an entire team of healers. I would strongly suggest going to ALL the workshops they do, they are full of so much useful info about relationships, people and life overall. You will open your eyes to a whole new life like I did. 🙂
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!Sally R.
If you’re reading this, it’s because you were probably in the same position that I found myself about a month ago. Lost, confused, needing direction, and looking for hope. I came to yelp to look for someone I can talk to. To talk about the struggles that I felt within. I came across Self Help, read all the reviews, and thought “I have nothing to lose.” I called and heard back from them the very next day. After speaking with them, even after that phone conversation, I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. They asked all the right questions I hadn’t thought of. After my first session, I felt like a new person. A part of a person I always dreamed of being. I realized that I had conditioned my mind to be the person I hated and not the person I dreamed of being. I highly recommend Self Help and the work they do. My family and I will be forever grateful for the work they’ve done in my life. So, if you’re second guessing yourself, don’t! Call them… and start the life you’ve always dreamed of!Tiffany T.
I have suffered from paranoid delusions and psychosis, which is notoriously difficult to treat. However, my happiness and emotional stability has been greatly improved with my sessions with Wes over the past six months. I really appreciate his help in dealing with some of my underlying issues, including unresolved past trauma. I highly recommend Wes and Self Help Orange County. If they can help someone with as many issues as me, I’m sure they can help you too.Steven G.
I have had a life coach for some time now and I’ve experienced miraculous results! I literally cannot say enough good things about this place. Self Help and their team are phenomenal in each and every way. After going to marriage counseling for years in the past I have a pretty good idea of how traditional therapy works but Self Help Orange County is not your average place. They have this super human like power to be able to listen intently to your problem, provide enlightening feedback and then help you obliterate old problems, beliefs or behaviors. It is so different than anything else you’ll experience, and they are all very, very helpful.
If you need help, STOP!
Pick up the phone and call them right now. Your new life is waiting for you.
I would highly recommend coming to Self-Help LA for marriage counseling and personal therapy. My husband and I initially came in to help save our marriage and we found that it is also helping us as individuals. A special thank you to Nancy for her professionalism but also for making us feel comfortable. It is a personal investment and we are thankful that we decided to give it a try!Elizabeth P.
What an AMAZING, eye opening experience! I never write reviews, but Self Help was such a great place to work with that I have to tell everyone about it. I have gone to multiple therapists before and each had helped me in their own way, but Self Help’s style was completely different. Their approach made me learn so much about myself, my friends, my family, and how I was just living life in general.
I used to get really bad anxiety and depression. I would have some really bad days where I would just question, “Why am I like this? What’s wrong with me?” and just could never figure it out. Self Help helped me work through my issues and gave me a different perspective on things. Therapy isn’t magic. It really takes a lot of work from the individual and a place as special as this to really give someone the tools to handle downers like anxiety or depression. Someone has to come into therapy willing and open minded. Nowadays my anxiety is way more controlled and I have a more positive perspective about life. I have never felt so LIBERATED! Thanks Self Help!!Melanie F.
Self Help!!!!! All I can say is that I got so much more than I expected with Self Help. I went in to see them during a breakdown in my relationship and a feeling of uncertainty in my life. They helped me see and understand what was going on in my life by breaking down events, stories and obstacles that I have chosen to get in my own way. They truly opened my eyes to a new world of believing and take a look at a much bigger picture. I am familiar with therapy and self-improvement but they definitely delivered above and beyond. You can tell they are passionate about getting to the root of a breakdown and turning it into a breakthrough. Thank you Self Help. Looking forward to my next session.Marcella G.
Self help LA is great. We had the pleasure of working with Emerzon Estrada. We did the couples counseling, going in to it we didn’t know what to expect Emerzon made it easy and comfortable, by the end of our session package I wanted more. The sessions really showed us the love what we knew was there but through everyday life you lose track of. Emerzon made it easy to understand, but our favorite part was he really showed us he cares, not only for us clients but also for what he does to help others. I am so grateful we found Self help and Emerzon. Really did save our relationship, thank you !!Kevin R.
Life changing! Emerzon is an amazing mentor , it’s like talking to a girlfriend but 10 times BETTER. Emerzon has given me the tools I needed to change my life. When I started to change, it was like a domino effect. My life and relationship with people started to shift. Every session is powerful. I leave having learned something new about myself and feeling refreshed. I was going through a difficult time in my relationship when I first had my session with Emerzon. Since then, I have experienced a great deal of personal growth, which has improved our relationship. This is definitely not your typical therapy. I feel happier and I’m learning to live more in the moment!Rosy E.
I have seen a lot of therapists, psychologists, councilors, and psychiatrists throughout my life. None of them have been nearly as effective as Rafael from Self Help. I went in with very a very specific issue I wanted to work on and that issue was resolved within a few sessions, along with other things we uncovered together. A session with Rafael feels like a conversation with a good nonjudgmental friend. I felt comfortable saying anything to him. Instead of sitting there and listening to you talk about your problems, Rafael will spend a short amount of time discussing your problems and the majority of the time trying to actually SOLVE whatever issues are troubling you in your life. This place is about action, not talking. Rafael is intuitive and can tell easily what issues need to be worked on at the moment. There is a tremendous amount of value I get from these sessions. I would and do recommend Rafael to friends and family.Patrick V.
Rafel was amazing and really helped me see what I was missing when it came to dealing with various issues in my life. He was very kind and knew how to listen without interrupting or judging. He gave really good advice that helped me and my partner to see our real problems and our deepest fears. 10/10 would recommend him to anyone dealing with problems. The six sessions package price was a great deal as well so you really get your value worth.Josh F.
