It sounds like you are saying 'he (or she) needs to help you'. If you need help then I would want to say 'tu a besoin de l'aide'

This relates to:
Il faut : expressing necessity and obligation -

Bonjour Merle,

You can read "il te faut de l'aide" as "il faut de l'aide à toi" --> it is necessary for help for you.

You can also say "tu as besoin de l'aide."
