Are you unsure about your direction or feeling overwhelmed around your business, career, relationships or life in general? Do you need someone to brainstorm with about your life visions; someone who can offer you ideas & formulate strategies & plans?
Figuring out the best way to go about things can be tough. It can feel lonely & isolating. As a coach/psychotherapist I understand the blocks & barriers that get in the way of your goals like emotional challenges & the struggles that everyone goes through. My aim is to help you create a healthier, happier and richer, more fulfilling life.
I believe that we all have a purpose in life & a wealth of untapped potential within us.. As a coach, I help my clients get hyper-focused, motivated & mindful about their behaviour & lives. We discover what energizes & excites you so that you can begin to zoom in & create an authentic, purposeful life.
I use a bunch of coaching methods: the Wheel of Life, principles of visual imagery, EFT tapping & EMDR, Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, Communication & relationship skills & SMART goal-setting.
As a coach, I help clients:
Get clear on what their values & priorities are in life
Uncover what’s holding them back from achieving that vision
Develop a plan to achieve the vision by supporting & keeping them accountable
Here’s how we do it:
Keep moving forward with actions
Use mindfulness to tackle blocking beliefs
Ask a lot of questions
Help you find heartfelt answers
Challenge you to think & stretch to the next level
Create & hold space for your reflections
Guide positive decision-making with creative tools
Suggest strategies & tools to help you keep your momentum going forward
I understand the struggles of getting started & the confusion that comes with creating a fulfilling career, good relationships or a successful business. Experienced support can help.
What do you think you could achieve by having your own personal coach & cheerleader?

“I came to Dawn at a point in my life where I felt stuck. I was mired in self-pity, stuck in my old story and making excuses for my apathy and bad habits. Dawn has helped me build a strong foundation of self-care and support; she’s facilitated resolution of old traumas that have informed my life and held me back; she’s helped me gain tools to make solid and productive decisions in my life; and she’s kept me accountable to my own truth while gently guiding me back to my work. I have always felt absolutely safe, valued, and heard by Dawn.
I came to Dawn as a woman who was tired, stuck, and not living to her fullest potential. I’m now entering my second year of full-time school with grades high enough to be invited to the Golden Key Honour Society, trained for a half marathon, and have moved into work that fully appreciates and utilizes my skill set.
Dawn isn’t a miracle worker, she’s a Life Midwife. She doesn’t do your work for you – she helps you find your strength and uniqueness, and facilitates you to reclaim your own life. I highly recommend Dawn to anyone looking to step fully into life and claim who they really are!Stephanie (Hamberger) Morningstar, Aboriginal Alternative Dispute Resolution Project Assistant and Group Facilitator at Six Nations Band Council
“Dawn Zivanovich came highly recommended to me as a potential supervisor in the completion of my hours for certification in EMDR therapy. As I tentatively practiced new skills and explored unknown clinical territory, Dawn balanced her positive teaching style with solid, constructive feedback. She was particularly generous in sharing her numerous resources which allowed me to reflect, practice and consider new ways of being in the therapy world.”Pam Santon, MSW, RSW, EMDR Clinician
