Dawn is a pain transformation coach and a pain management specialist. She has recently had her story published in Living Your True Story, a collection of inspiring chapters showcasing individual success and achievement and been nominated as a finalist in the Change Maker 2018 Altitude Awards.
Dawn lived with years of abuse at home and a pattern of being told her chronic pain was imaginary, which finally culminated in her being diagnosed with acute ulcerative colitis when she was 21. Though Dawn had to learn to walk again, and later faced a number of other serious health challenges and depression, she never gave up and realised there had to be a better way to deal with her pain, start doing the things she loved again and enjoy loving relationships with her husband and little boy.
In this podcast, Dawn talks about how, after 15 years of research, she overcame her addiction to painkillers, her hopelessness and lack of self worth. She discusses how incredibly debilitating constant pain can be and how important it is not to give up hope.
Today, Dawn is pain free and is helping her clients combat and better manage chronic pain using techniques she discovered and learned to use on herself with great success.
