Feedback & Reviews
They were great, helped me out a lot surprisingly. I really appreciate it!
JDust is a great listener and a very considerate person, his conversation was intelligent and interesting. Our talk was very helpful and I would definitely recommend giving him a try. :-)
Empathetic, understanding and non judgmental. He is the best
Asks the right questions
you are amazing jdust. sorry our chat suddenly cut off.
Intelligent and insightful listener! :)
Very kind, insightful and knowledgeable!
Very patient, open, honest, explanatory, and helpful with identifying underlying root causes and themes in things you say to help you organize your own thoughts and give some clarity from an objective standpoint.
He was really supportive and helped me to figure out many things. Thank you for your patience and kindness
This listener is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and helpful. One of the best!!
When I stumbled across this site, I didn't think it would actually be helpful. Turns out I am wrong. JDust helped a lot. Now I can clearly see my problem and what solution is the best. Thank you sooo much
He is very professional, constructive, and kind. I don't feel judged, only that he is sincerely trying to help. I don't think anyone should hesitate to talk to him, for he is a wonderful person to talk to!
JDust was my first listener and I couldn't have picked anyone better. I was so happy to have been replied to so fast. Honestly I didn't know what I had really wanted and I was taking a chance. My results were fantastic. JDust is a great pick for anyone. ;)
He is highly intuitive. It takes a particular piece of insight to understand and find direction in overcoming a challenge. Rest assured that he will ask the questions that will eventually bring you that insight.
Best listener I have had on here. Takes in all of your problems and recognizes that advice isn't always needed but rather just someone to listen. What advice was given was really great and was given in a nice, polite way. I will definitely be talking to him more often.
You're very approachable, and kind. It feels as if you're listening and actually caring about what's being said. Your patience is great. And you're definitely a safe place!
Such a wonderful person and listener. Truly happy I found him.
I am glad he asked if I wanted to go 1 on 1 he makes me feel not so sad
Incredible. Truly brought me peace of mind during a rough break up I am going through. I've never been in a breakup situation like this before and although I may return to an uneasy spot tomorrow, I am at least at the start of a glimpse of peace of mind and only time will continue to make that grow.
great person!
JDust has been helpful so far. I am still pretty new to this site. His response time is quick and he lets me know when he is going to end the conversation.
Great to talk to!

Great listener. The type u feel u can really trust. Very knowledgeable.
