From clients, care givers, and health care workers:

“…brave and generous, living your truth in gentleness, living openness and hopefulness.”

“Sharing other ways of viewing the world.”

“Your humility, your readiness to open your closets of knowledge and place the content on the table for all to enjoy is a valuable way on how to be more than how to do.”

“I felt a lot of support you gave to us as facilitators. Your openness has been a big bonus in addition to your friendly disposition.”

“I appreciated input you brought in many sharing experience of openness, loving heart, caring energy. I got a new role model.”

“Very intelligent and smart. I think I found my role model in you, empowered woman. I learnt a lot from you.”

“‘ I have referred 4 children/ young people (aged 10 – 19) to Lindiwe over the last 5 years and she has been brilliant with all. Lindiwe gives space to talk about trauma and difficulties whilst ensuring all those she works with feel respected and heard. Her pragmatic approach supports young people to acknowledge difficulties and challenges, but also to build strategies to cope, identify goals, and work towards the future they want for themselves” Development Director at Waves of Change
