ABOUT ILLUMINATED LIFE

My 20 year experience in mental health reveals that all human beings desire joy, inner peace and love. These states are not elusive gifts granted to the privileged or lucky.

We all have the capacity and inner technology to create our dream lives and highest potential.

However, we seem to make choices in our health, work or relationships which keep us stagnant or stuck. We can use this friction to help us re-design the life we have been waiting for.

The illuminated life is a creative process to bring awareness to areas which keep us limited. The approach is to harness more light both physically, mentally and emotionally. This enlightenment journey translates practically as more inspiration, clarity, radiance, magnetism and vitality. Does that sound good!

“If you want to know the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

ILLUMINATED LIFE OFFERINGS

Change your inner world to change your outer experience

As my work relates to expansion for soul alignment, I no longer see clients who are deeply troubled with addictions, personality disorders & psychosis. I am moving away from the traditional role as a support psychiatrist for mood disturbance and am invested in taking you through a process to create a more sacred/purposeful way of being.

We use a combination of bio-hacking, optimising human potential, and spiritual immersion.

TESTIMONIALS

  • I was destined to meet you. In my darkest moments- a true dark night of the soul. You were there. You kept persuading me that we were on a journey of discovery. No one has taken so much interest in my welfare. It feels as though you care about every cell. What I eat, how I think, who I love, how I move, how I play. I know I have a long way to go, but you showed me a way out.

  • Dr Dawson is not a psychiatrist; she is a healer. I have suffered for years with major depression, anxiety and crippling insomnia. She took a fresh look at my history, recommended new treatments and sorted out my hormones. With good humour, she helped me to have the courage to change my habits and look at my wounds. During one consultation, she even lay on the floor with me as I cried in foetal position. I have my life back. Thank you.

    SAM D
  • Thanks for a truly life-changing experience this past weekend. It has catapulted me into a more positive mindset and adequately geared me for my journey of healing ahead. You should be proud of your beautiful venture.

    NIKE
  • I'm feeling a little smug, it's as though I have a little magic up my sleeve. I haven't felt this feeling of power and calm in years, and I'm loving it. I don't say this lightly, but last weekend was life-changing. You are an extraordinary soul.

    KATE
  • Looking over everything that you have done for me, I feel an enormous sense of deep joy and gratitude. Thank you for reminding me. I am so blessed to know you. The divine light in me honours the divine light in you.

    TARYN
  • I have been to more than ten retreats in my life in various parts of the world, and this weekend has been the best. Completely life-changing

    CARMEN
  • In all the years that I have seen psychiatrists (and there have been plenty), not one has ever come up with suggestions on how I can improve my way of life from every angle. Thank you, Dr Dawson, for taking a remarkable interest in me.

    DR BG
  • Siobhan's integrative approach was tremendously helpful to me as I was looking for an alternative to medication. I cannot recommend her strongly enough. She holds a safe space very well, which enabled me to explore core issues that I had never discussed with anyone before. My healing has finally started, and I am grateful that she is able to walk this journey with me.
