About the course

How often have you wished you could be free to express your ideas, thoughts and feelings without worrying about how others will respond to you and setting boundaries without feeling super guilty or afraid? I’m here to tell you it doesn’t always have to be this way.

Stepping into your power: Ultimate fawn guide to letting go and living free is designed for those who struggle with an over reliant fawn response due to childhood conditioning. This online program is specifically designed to help empaths and co-dependents – reclaim yourself, feel free to live your life authentically, step into your power and stand your ground. 

Who this course is for

This course is for you if you:

  • Have difficulty with people pleasing and putting the needs of others before your own
  • Often say yes in an effort to make those around you happy and comfortable when you need to say no
  • Mirror opinions, views, or emotions to match those around you
  • Fear self-expression might damage your relationships
  • Present the most harmonious elements of self while hiding your true feelings, wants, and needs.
  • Avoid conflict
  • Have difficulties with assertiveness and maintaining healthy boundaries

Fawning is a learned trauma response that was learned in childhood as a result of parental figures who were chaotic, had explosive tempers or were emotionally unavailable. Due to our environment not being fully safe we learnt to be easy or helpful.

The good news is we can unlearn this maladaptive coping mechanism and choose carefully who we share our kindness and compassion with.

This 10 module online course is able to be completed in your own time at your own pace. Included in this course is material specifically designed to empower fawns identify their own sense of self and values, mindfulness practice to support healing, harnessing self-compassion and self-protection as well as practical tools and strategies to improve assertiveness and implement healthy boundaries.

Course format

Each module comes with worksheets and exercises to complete. You will learn practical skills to use so you can hold onto your sense of self and have the freedom to be authentic in the presence of others. By working through the course modules you will receive all the key components to overcoming your fawn response. Learn to re-write unhelpful conditioning that is no longer serving you and live life on your terms.

Do I need to week by week or can I go at my own pace? 
The course is designed to complete at your own pace whenever you want to.  It is suggested that you do not power through the content as it takes time to process and put in place. There is absolutely no worry about falling behind in learning modules.

How is the course content delivered?

Who is Dr Madeleine Amie

Dr Madeleine Amie founder of The Fierce Fawn

Madeleine is a psychologist with 15+ years of experience in the field of mental health and wellbeing. She specialises in childhood trauma and has had the honour of working with many children, adults and families in this area in both New Zealand and Australia.

The fawn survival response is an umbrella term for people that have had to forfeit their own sense of self, wants and needs to have safety in relationships. In learning about the fawn response Madeleine was able to make sense of her own childhood experiences of growing up in a religious cult and overcome an automatic survival response that had held her back for so long. Having the knowledge and finding the tools to be able to work through her fawn response was incredibly liberating. In wanting to help support other fawns in their healing journey, Madeleine launched The Fierce Fawn. Her objective is to help empower those who ‘give too much’ so they may have more satisfying relationships, set healthy boundaries, and have the freedom to be their authentic selves.

Customer Testimonials

“I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Madeleine to create her online course of videos. I was really impressed by the way she could articulate complex human mental processes in an easy and simple way. I certainly learnt more about myself and in fact now understand more of why I do what I do. I have already recommended her to several friends as the fawning aspect of our lives is not something most people are aware of. Listening to the content and going through the worksheets really did make me understand the reasons for my reactions and behaviour. If anyone has the chance to get help, advice or use the course I highly recommend it. Madeleine’s knowledge is very insightful and concise and I think anyone lucky enough to hear her thoughts would find benefits in their life in a positive and applicable way.” Andrew

“I have just completed the Fierce Fawn online course and I would just like to say how grateful I am that Madeleine was able to create and present her course in a way that really resonated with me. I have often found myself doing things for others to please them as if my feelings and needs didn’t matter. It wasn’t until I looked into the fawning response, that it all started to make sense and so I did the full course of videos, worksheets and listened to Madeleine’s calming way of relating the concept and its processes. I then found a better understanding of myself at a much deeper level and have been making positive changes in my life.” Jen

“The course totally opened up my world, giving me an understanding of why I felt so powerless in situations. Once I understood that, the course gave me all the tools needed to empower myself to be a stronger person and able to assess my world in a more balanced way so that my needs were being met. Thank you so much for helping me find myself and enable me to realise that I am important and amazing without needing the approval of others to define me. ” Karla
