My Story


I’m Dawn and I wanna tell you a secret.

I’ve faked it.

I faked it at work.  


Looking like I was owning it, yet feeling a fraud.


I faked it at home. 


Winging motherhood, whilst crumbling inside.


I was the successful, ambitious and driven career girl. Riding the waves and climbing the corporate ladder. Yet, I’d suffered at the hands of stress burn-out.  It knocked me sideways, crushed my very essence and I came tumbling down into a very dark place.


I learnt first-hand, however, that there is light even in the darkest places, as I discovered ways to rebuild myself.


Like the phoenix, I rose from the flames stronger and brighter!


Later in life, my dream of becoming a mother was realised when I was blessed with my ultimate role.  Filled with unconditional love for my little ones, the transition over to motherhood wasn’t so easy and I found it unbelievably tough.  

I felt overwhelmed, anxious and unfulfilled.

I’d lost my chic, my groove, my sparkle.

What was wrong with me?

How dare I complain about the best gig in town.

Yet, as I opened up, I found there were many other women secretly hiding the shame of how they really felt.


Looks can be deceiving. Life’s not always a bed of roses.

“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” 

From ‘Our Deepest Fear’ by Marianne Williamson from “A Return to love: Reflections on the principles of a course in miracles.

What is your secret?

It’s safe with me.
