Japanese Maple looks like it is dying....please help!

Hi I have a Japanese Maple which has lost a lot of leaves. The leaves are curling and going brown at the tips before eventually falling off.

I have read lots of websites which tell me to give it deep watering which I have been doing for a couple of months now. I have also transported it into a larger pot one months ago however I am still seeing no improvement.

The tree is not in harsh sun.

It is almost bare....can you please send through some advice as I do not want to loose it. It has sentimental value to me.

Where are you located that your tree is in leaf now? And can you post photos of the problem? Are you growing it in a container? If so, how long has it been planted, what type of potting soil, how often do you water?

Need more info to even attempt to diagnose a problem.
