Shadow Work Testimonials

With Hannah Mae’s resilience, kindness, softness and wisdom empathically in a way that feels real, and seeped into me with not lingo or jargon from a work book but real, it was like a heart speaking that knows pain and sadness and I came away with a sense of being fully met in my deepest darkest place I’d ever been.


I had the fortune to connect with Hannah about an old emotional pattern I had become aware of and was seeking help to integrate. I was immediately touched by Hannah caring and empathetic approach. Hannah was also able to really hear my story and echoed back a deep understanding of the issue that immediately led me to know she would be able to facilitate this experience for me.

The experience itself was epic, literally over several hours that seemed to fly by and Hannah was totally present throughout. I felt incredibly held and safe to go deep into my process and the day was perfectly paced to reach its natural conclusion.

It was a very deep and profoundly cathartic experience with many insights and personal shifts. I would highly recommended Hannah to anyone wishing to go deep into their 'shadows' for healing and resolution.

I could not recommend Hannah and Shadow Work higher. Hannah is incredible to work with. I felt completely safe throughout the whole process even going through hard feelings. I have been actively into personal development in many forms for many, many years, and I have never felt as powerful results as after Hannahs work. Now six days since we did the work things are shifting incredibly into the direction I wished for. I see things with clarity and I feel very confident that more pieces will fall into balance with more time. I am Extremely grateful I chose to show up for Shadow work with Hannah. It is worth every minute and every penny.

“It’s incredible what Shadow work does. I’m sure I would need to sit with a therapist and talk with my brain for years to get this kind of result”


Thanks for working with me yesterday. I found the work to be really transformative. I've been on a high ever since. It's not the high of being "out of it", more the high of having completed something. I feel like I have been carrying something for years and have just put it down. I feel lighter, I feel optimistic and I feel in control. Most of all I can feel! Thanks for facilitating this massive and paradoxically subtle change.

Shadow Work with Hannah Mae Dawson has definitely been beneficial for me and I recommend it. Being the second session with Hannah, she continues to bring compassion, consideration and the utmost support. Her gentle approach makes the whole experience feel safe. I was able to let my body express it's emotions in ways that i cannot normally do. I was able to explore areas that are very scary and get a better understanding of my self.

Doing Shadow Work with Hannah Mae was like a (gentle) rebirthing for me.I was supported to bring the hidden parts of me into the light, and to understand what had been hidden / rejected and why. In doing so I was able to claim back the authenticity and sovereignty that I had been searching for for many years. The Shadow Work process also set the wheels in motion for the resolution of a family issue that I had been desperate to resolve. Thank you for all of your care and presence, for staying with me until the very end, every step along the way I am so grateful and my life is richer and better because of this work.

As a Shadow Work Coach Hannah is like water - simultaneously immensely powerful and utterlygentle. I felt so safe with Hannah I was able to let go completely. She is able to remain fluid to whatever comes to the fore in a session, whilst never loosing sight of the over-arching intention. I have no idea how she does it - all I know is that I'm immensely grateful. She has really helped me clear head and heart before the birth of our first child, and I can't wait to continue working together in the future.

Hannah Mae created an easy, trusting environment to be be able to sink deeply into the work. I would highly recommend doing Shadow Work, it has given me clarity on my self sabotaging strategies and a deep understanding of where they come from. This has allowed me to treat myself more compassionately and love the hidden parts of myself. I feel I have a new understanding of self that allows for a lot more love and empathy. I am looking forward to our next session. Thank you Hannah Mae for holding space so beautifully.

(second session) I am so grateful for your holding, I deeply appreciate your amazing capacity to see, with the eyes of your heart, what is going on, and I never felt judged, on the contrary, I felt able to open more and more into my fullness.

My session with Hannah was really powerful and I think in ways that may take many more weeks or even months to fully embody. She was able to help me uncover some deep trauma that I was not consciously aware of. She helped me get to root causes and address issues in somatic ways that felt really right for my body. It was empowering to make decisions around how to release - I felt in charge of the session in a way and I felt totally safe and supported by Hannah at all times.

I honour you and the work that you do.

Thank you so much, The clarity it has brought is immeasurable. Never before has my childhood and all the messaging been laid out in such a digestible fashion. I’m still taking it all in. The money si secondary to me, it’s the mental and emotional blocks that get cleared in these processes that make them priceless. It is worth so much to me and you went above and beyond throughout the process.

When I first saw Hannah I knew that she could help me and I felt in the best possible hands. She has helped build up my self esteem and self belief through helping me to revisit difficult aspects of my childhood! By delving deep and exploring the colours of my shadow I have gained a lot of clarity and inner peace. The shadow work we have done is based on trust and enabled me to identify where certain critical inner voices originated from and bring them to my consciousness! The primal scream that I let out released a lot of anger which I had repressed for years, feeding a negative and unhelpful victim dynamic which I am now aware of and have since been able to stop! As a result I have become more assertive and unwilling to take the victim position!


I still wanted to thank you for our session. It has been really helpful for me and has opened new insights into my history and what I could work on. I have read a book called "how to befriend your shadow" that I found, it gave me even more insight and confirmed everything I learned in our session. I am so gratefull for this new approach! It finally feels right, like it all makes sense and I have finally found a way to approach my problems better. It was quite intense, especially on the day and the first night with my family after our session. On the second evening after, though, I had a little cry and breakdown, which turned out to be really good, as they were all there, finally listening to me, and I dared speak about my thoughts and fears more freely than ever before. Thank you Hannah! I felt very understood and held by you in my vulnerable state.


I had the pleasure of witnessing your (certification) group session in Sussex a few weeks ago where you demonstrated considerable skill, competence, care & compassion and the whole group went away humming. I have no doubt that over the coming years that you will help bring healing and realisation to many people.
