"Linda is a great listener and really understands situations however complex they are.
My husband and I have been seeing Linda for only 2 months and already she has made a difference to our lives for the better.
Very rewarding and can't thank her enough for saving our marriage. Who said people cant work wonders!
"After years of struggling with low self esteem I often thought about getting counseling but didn't do anything about it until Linda was recommended to me by a close friend.
Linda is very approachable and easy to talk to.
She has given me the tools to build my self confidence & put the past behind me.I now feel better about myself & better equipped to face the world.
Many Thanks Linda"
"When I started my Counseling sessions I had such low self esteem and confidence in myself.
I have found my sessions to be incredibly helpful to me during a very low ebb in my life.
Linda has given me the tool to work through my own thought process, which I now find I am more equipped to deal with when I have traumas in my life.
Linda has been an inspiration to me and made me see things in a more clear light and enabled me to move forward with my life.
"After suffering from panic, anxiety attacks and depression which were affecting my relationships I started counseling with Linda Abbott.
After several visits I learnt techniques to combat my anxiety and found the route causes of my problem.
I now have the tools to deal with future problems and the dark cloud has been lifted.
I can now see by continuing my program that I will finally be at peace with myself and others.
Thank you Linda."
"I called Linda because I was having problems with family and work commitments.
It was hard to pick up the phone at first to call her but when I managed it I knew by just arranging my first appointment that I was heading in the right direction.
By the end of my first appointment I felt that already things that I had been bottling up had started to seem not so bad.
Linda I can't thank you enough for all your help and support. LIFE IS GOOD"
"We were both a bit sceptical initially working with a counsellor and discussing our personal issues but Linda made both of us feel comfortable very quickly.
Linda never judged either of us and worked hard with both of us to help us to each understand the others viewpoint.
We learnt that we could still have a good relationship even with differences of opinion and Linda helped us to be able to listen to each other and communicate more effectively.
Counselling helped us both feel much more relaxed and dramatically reduced the amount of arguments we had."
"I had spent most of my life apparently successful and happy with a good marriage, two children, a high flying career, nice house, great holidays and a circle of good friends.
Then in my late thirties the wheels came off. Deep down I was really unhappy, depressed and unfulfilled.
My marriage was disintegrating I had problems with my children and my career was going nowhere.
The last thing I would have normally done would have been to talk to anyone about my issues, let alone a counselor.
One day out of desperation I thumbed through the ads in yellow pages and spotted an advertisement for Linda Abbott with the claim 'there’s no problem that cannot be solved, etc' It struck a chord and I decided to call her for help.
I have worked with Linda for several years and have managed to face up to and move on from broken relationships, career crises, problems with children and come to terms with the premature death of my father for the first time in my life.
Counselling is not for everyone and you get out of it what you put in. Linda is a great listener and coach.
She has a unique ability to get you to work through issues yourself and at your pace.
I would recommend her to anyone who is in an emotional hole and needs help to climb out of it."
