Here is what some of my clients had to say about their experience of working with me:
"I joined an intuitive eating circle in 2016 and started working with Dawn on my ongoing compulsive eating issues. I had weighed myself a couple of weeks before joining Dawn’s circle and found I weighed 215 pounds. At our first circle, Dawn suggested a daily journaling practice and some gentle inquiry whenever I “found” myself in the kitchen. I found that tuning into myself by journaling every morning brought up issues that I had been stuffing with food. When I went to the kitchen I simply asked myself two questions. Am I hungry? What am I feeling right now? I didn’t weigh myself, I tried to be present when I ate so I could taste the food I chose to eat, and I tried not to judge myself or my body. A couple of months later I weighed myself and found I’d lost weight. I haven’t weighed myself since but my clothes are no longer tight and I feel better about myself and my body. I look forward to continuing my healing journey. Thank you Dawn." - Sandra J., Duncan BC
"First of all, it was about a year ago that I prayed for freedom from compulsive eating. I phoned Unity Church’s Silent Unity line (24 hour prayer line) as a part of my homework I was doing for an Affirmative Prayer course through Unity. The prayer I requested is sent to the prayer tower at Silent Unity for 30 days of prayer. I was essentially asking for healing — with myself (beliefs) and with food (beliefs around food). And then this group came to be with you, the ACIM principles and the intuitive eating book. It’s been an answer to my prayer." - Tanya W., Vancouver Island
“Dawn’s work with me has made an incredible difference in my life. There have been times when I have been caught up in issues that I can’t seem to find a way out of and talking to Dawn has helped me turn things around immediately. I retained Dawn to work with a group that I was working with and Dawn came to the group and made an incredible difference immediately. People still talk about how helpful she was to them in such a short period of time. “ - James Dunn, Successful Interventions, Nanaimo and Vancouver, BC
" I find Dawn to be a skillful counsellor with a remarkable ability to cut through the mental confusion and get to the heart of the matter. This is done with great compassion and humour. My most profound experiences relate to my hiatal hernia. This is a physical condition that I have found no remedy for, either with diet or deep visceral massage. However, I have always felt that the hernia is a manifestation of trapped emotions. On my first encounter with Dawn, in a group setting, some very old anger was released and I could feel my whole chest area vibrating. Another time, in a one on one session, I visualised the pressure as being a dense metal plate. We imagined cutting and melting it away. As a result, I felt freed from the pressure and was buoyant for several hours. The old patterns solidified it again, but, I now have a direction for healing. It is a matter of continuing to let go at a deep level. Thanks to Dawn, I have learned to see the hernia as a gift - a barometer rather than a burden. I highly recommend anyone pursuing Dawn's counselling service." - Colleen F., Duncan BC
"Dawn is a wonderful teacher and a great example in my life. I' ve known her since 2012 and for me she is my guide in life. I attended many circles with her and when I moved back to Europe, we continued our contact through Skype. I received lots of teachings from her, who helped me enormously with my process of loving myself and living in joy and peace……I'll ask her and she resonates in me with her wisdom. Dawn is a beautiful spirit and a loving person. She has a great sense of humor and I am always touched by the positive and intense way she listens to me." - Saskia T., The Netherlands
"I so appreciate Dawn's years of experience and how she lives what she teaches. I've received the gift of inner peace around many ego thoughts that used to plague me. I look forward to more 'work' with Dawn!" - Heather M., Victoria, BC
"I have used Dawn's counselling services and taken some classes she has offered. Through Dawn's clear, concise and heartfelt counselling, she gave me a new way to deal with my long standing belief of being unlovable & unworthy. I found her therapeutic circles and counselling changed my "old" perception and story about myself. Dawn also gave me concrete tools, that fill me with more Peace in my life, something I had little or a fleeting experience with before. I would recommend Dawn and her counselling services, especially if you desire to change the way you do your life, as well as add more joy to your life." - Rhonda T., Austin, TX
"After years of trying mostly talk therapy counselling, I wanted something deeper to help me connect with myself. Dawn facilitated that process beautifully. While the process was different for me and I had some resistance, the results were very quick and the experience was powerful. It has been hugely reassuring that I can heal my own mind with the right help. Thank You” - Mike W., Nanaimo, BC
"……I have been working through a few major things and the tools Dawn taught me have helped so much. But also I’d like to say how Dawn helped me focus on staying out of my story and the ego ...being present with my emotions and dealing with them....." - Colleen P., Nanaimo BC
"After working on my limiting beliefs with Dawn I felt a sense of freedom that I never felt before. I found Dawn to be firm but loving in her approach in helping me get through the beliefs about myself such as “I am unlovable, stupid and bad”. Dawn held me accountable to my undisciplined mind that lead me into self sabotage and a chaotic lifestyle. She shared with me teachings that I could use with my partner and as a result we are together after living apart for close to 4 years. I believe the work that I did with Dawn significantly helped me change my perception of myself and others and gave me the tools to continue to overcome adversity in my life." - Louise S., Vancouver
"From my oldest memory, food has always been an issue in my life. I actually thought of it as a kind of a hobby. When I woke up in the morning, I thought about what I would eat and thought about food all day. I was either on a diet or binging. So to my credit, even though food was a major issue I only made it to 217lbs.
I joined Weight Watchers many times and still think it’s one of the best weight loss programs going but this last time I fought it from the third month in. I would weigh in, binge like crazy get back on track and maybe loose or gain a bit every week. Anytime I got near a significant number I would have a very hard time getting past it. Eventually I got off 40+ lbs but couldn’t maintain it and went up and down 5 lbs over and over. I knew then, it was me sabotaging myself but couldn’t figure out how to fix it until Dawn Green came along. I had participated in her healing circles for a while and that helped with other issues but when she started offering speciality programs, one on one programs for different issues, I decided it was the right move and am I glad I did. I quit Weight Watchers and once a week Dawn and I had a Facetime meeting where we went over the weekly work she had me do and the “stuff” that came up during the week.
Part of the program she works with told me to throw out the diet mentality and no foods were off limits. I knew I would gain some weight and I did. I still fit into my clothes so it was probably about 6-8 lbs but I don’t weight myself any longer.
Eventually the gaining stopped and I stayed the same for a few weeks then my eating started to change and I found myself not thinking about eating very often and I am choosing different foods when I do eat something. If occasionally I do eat something that I would have considered “off limits” before, it doesn’t have the same joy it used to so where before there never was enough food now one, is enough. In fact I just went though a very stressful time and I didn’t turn to food at all which would have been unheard of in the past. As Dawn might say. I have peace with food and it’s my friend now not something I have to “manage”. I guess I will have to find a new hobby and that’s ok with me.
I also noticed a side effect of our work has been that a lot of other things in my life are working better also."- Jessica, Courtenay, BC.
