About Dawn Lilburn MBACP Senior Accredited Counsellor and EMDR Accredited Therapist

I am originally from Newcastle, moving to York in 1987. Although working as a qualified counsellor since 2003, in 2009 I decided to begin a small private practice from my home in Rawcliffe, York. I work from a designated confidential counselling room. Although not far from the centre of York, it offers plenty of free parking and the Park and Ride is a short walk away.

I have developed an integrative approach as I know that what works for one person may not necessarily work for another. I like to work with my clients as individuals, to help them to rediscover their strengths and to identify areas that might require the development of new resources, which we can do together.

My training, work experience and any achievement

I began my counselling training in 1999 and completed a Graduate Diploma in Counselling at the University of York St John in 2003. My placements during training were with Victim Support, York Women’s Counselling Service and York Rape Crisis.

I have 8 years experience of working within the voluntary sector, the majority of which took place in GP’s surgeries.

I work with adult individuals (16 years and above.)

I have experience of working short to long term with a wide variety of issues.

I am MBACP Senior Accredited and UKRCP Registered.

I am also a qualified, accredited EMDR Therapist and I have a Diploma in Individual and Group Supervision.

Further Information

Both my email and mobile answerphones are confidential and I would welcome contact in either way to discuss any questions or concerns you might have about working together.

I generally respond to any messages left the same day.

Once contact has been made and we are both happy to proceed an appointment would be made to meet for an assessment session.

I offer weekday and evening appointments to suit your requirements.

A downstairs room is available, if you have difficulty with the stairs.

Telephone counselling is also available if you were unable to get to a session for any reason, or if you would prefer not to have face to face counselling.

Other concerns & issues I deal with

    I have always had a special interest in working with anxiety. Keen to offer alternative ways of working to my clients I became a qualified EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) Therapist in 2008, acheiving accreditation status earlier this year. EMDR is an effective way of working with Anxiety, Trauma and PTSD. It works by harnessing our natural problem solving ability. Unlike counselling, details about a client issue are not always necessary in order to be able to work with it effectively and relatively quickley. Please contact me or look at my website (www.dawnlilburncounselling.co.uk) for further information about this method of treatment.
