About me

Hello, I am Dawn Keeligan.

I am a professional, down-to-earth, Counsellor, Life Coach, CBT Therapist and a NLP Practitioner. I am passionate about supporting people who are struggling with various aspects of their personal situations. I strongly believe that it is good to talk and that every individual deserves to be heard in a non-judgemental and confidential safe arena, of which, I provide. If you would like be heard, like you have never been heard before, then don't hesitate to contact me today on 07810763543 to arrange your first session.  Sessions can be booked within 24 hours.

There are no obligations to book any further sessions. I am highly successful in helping clients improve the quality of their lives and make them aware in the first session that things can change for the better, even in the most horrific and desperate circumstances.

Over the past 20 years it has been my passion, to support and help people with their problems and to help them positively and powerfully move forward in their lives. My positive energy, and my genuine desire to engage with people empathically, enthusiastically and professionally is, an attribute which I believe contributes greatly to the provision of hope for a brighter future for those I strive to help.

As a counsellor I use an integrative approach, which means I am able to use my broad knowledge of different counselling methods to devise for you a comprehensive and unique program, which will be tailored to your unique requirements. The counselling methods I draw on include: Person Centered, Transitional Analysis, Psychodynamics, and Gestalt.

I am also a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) which means I can help you learn to stop the cycle of negative thinking.  

Additionally, I am a Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) Practitioner, which uses an integrated approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy. If you choose, I can use hypnosis to help you achieve any desired change.

And I can also provide you with Life Coaching.This can make a real difference in all areas of your life, and can help you move from where you are now, to where you want to be.

I can support you with issues such as:  Anxiety,  Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Relationships,  Affairs and Betrayals,  Depression,  Family Problems,  Low Self Esteem,  Separation and Divorce,  Bereavement,  Emotional Abuse, and much more….

I knowthat by listening to you with compassion and without any judgement, I can provide you with a safe and confidential place for you to voice your concerns and begin to gain hope for the present and the future.

My therapy and coaching offer you the opportunity to explore your personality, your needs and wants, your goals, yourdreams; to help you begin to make sense of you as a whole. It is about you. This is your speacial journey, and I will tailor your therapy to meet your needs.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Would talking help?

Are you fed up with waiting for an NHS appointment? You could be booked in for your first appointment today.

Are you suffering Depression?

Depression is more than simply feeling unhappy or fed up for a few days.

We all go through spells of feeling down, but when you're depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days.

Some people still think that depression is trivial and not a genuine health condition. They're wrong. Depression is a real illness with real symptoms, and it's not a sign of weakness or something you can "snap out of" by "pulling yourself together".

The good news is that with the right treatment and support, most people can make a full recovery (NHS : 2016).

The Benefits of Skype Counselling

For many people, talking openly about difficult problems is hard. Finding the time to undertake this commitment can also be challenging. But it is well worth it, and Skype counselling is a really convenient way to make it happen. Skype counselling can provide many advantages.

For some people it is easier to open up on Skype

  • Skype counselling allows you to discuss sensitive issues directly, but without meeting face-to-face. Many find it a more relaxed way to work with a counsellor, particularly if they feel embarrassed about their problems.

  • Skype Counselling Saves Time and Travel.

  • There is no need to travel, simply log on to Skype from your choice of location. It can be home, your office, the park or even from a hotel when you are travelling. It really is that simple. For those living in remote locations, or who have mobility difficulties it provides a practical solution.

  • You may live in a country where counselling in your preferred language is not available. On-line technology allows you to access counselling in the language of your choice.

  • With Skype counselling your choice of counsellor is not limited to your geographic location. You can access Skype counselling from almost anywhere in the world.

  • Convenient Skype counselling sessions

  • Balancing family life, a job, a social life and other commitments can be challenging. Skype counselling sessions are flexible and can be arranged to fit with your routine.

  • Skype Counselling is Confidential.

  • Skype is a secure way to communicate and is password protected. Just like face-to-face counselling I am bound by a professional code of confidentiality. What you discuss in a session with me stays completely private.

  • Skype counselling for depression, bereavement, stress and more.

  • Skype counselling is successfully used to help with a broad range of life situations including Skype counselling for depression, stress counselling, bereavement counselling and plenty more.
