During these extremely unsettling times we can so easily feel isolated and alone.  When so much is out of our control it can be hard to separate out what we can do something about and what we have to just “get on with.”

I am now offering all of my sessions remotely, either via Zoom or telephone, so that it would still be possible to access Counselling or EMDR. 

If working remotely would be something you would like to consider, or would  like to ask some questions about, please contact me either via my contact page or by ringing 07795093101.  

Do you feel that you have lost your direction and are struggling to enjoy life?

Do you struggle with conflicting thoughts and feelings?

Do you find it difficult to relax?

Maybe life has taken a sudden turn which is difficult to deal with?

Perhaps it feels felt like negative thoughts are starting to take over, leaving you feeling as if you are “no longer in control” or “strong enough to cope” as you have in the past?

Or maybe there is something alarmingly familiar about an unwanted feeling which you realise has happened before?

It is natural to want to believe that we can deal with whatever life throws at us.  In reality there are times when what we are dealing with feels too much to cope with.

To ask for help might seem like an admission of weakness, which understandably we can feel reluctant to do.  The truth is that we can all use a little help from time to time, in order that we can get back on with our lives and live them in the way we choose to.

Some of the issues I have experience of working with:-

Stress, relationship difficulties, anxiety, abuse, depression, trauma, bereavement, sleeping difficulties, bullying, low motivation, loss, life changing events, transitions, post traumatic stress disorder, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, low self-esteem/confidence, performance anxiety, miscarriage, infertility, dissociation, exam nerves, public speaking, trust issues etc.


If you are unsure if counselling or EMDR would be appropriate for you, or if you have any questions you would like to ask please contact me.  You can do this either via email at dawnlilburncounselling@outlook.com, by telephone on 07795093101 (confidential answer phone available) or by using the form on the contact page.  I will get back to you as soon as I can.
