Dr Dixon has been an incredible help and support for me dealing with anxiety. I have been seeing her since 6 months and I feel like a new person. She has helped me gain control of my life and develop habits for coping.

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.

Work with me!
