Reviews

Written by A.S. on Jul 23, 2020 after counseling with Linda for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Rev.Dixon has been amazing since I first started counselling with her.

She has offered me a heap of worksheets to help and work through in my own time. I haven’t felt pressured at all.

Whenever she has messaged me, I feel as though my concerns were validated and that she genuinely cared about helping me work through my issues.

She has equipped me with skills that I can utilise when things get tough. Overall I am having a good experience with my counselling because of Rev.Dixon.
