Ian Michie Counsellor/Psychotherapist MBACP (ACCRED)
Talking therapy can help us to see re-occuring patterns in our lives and gives us the perspective and opportunity to implement change. If you are struggling to understand something or finding it diifficult to manage your life then deciding to see a qualified professional who has an impartial and fresh viewpoint can be an empowering decision. I am a highly experienced counsellor/psychotherapist who has worked in various settings during my career, including a busy GP practice and a residential crisis centre.
I have worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist in North London for the past 10 years. I offer short term (6 -12 sessions) and long term counselling to individuals and couples. For short term work I mainly focus on the 'here and now' and together we identify the main themes that need to be looked at. Long term work involves looking at both the past and the present and exploring things on a deeper level.
The psychodynamic approach involves taking responsibility for yourself and finding new 'tools' to move forward in an appropriate way for a better more fulfilling life.
I work in North London, in a confidential containing environment. This is a space where you can reflect on your issues without criticism or rebuke.
I am a member of the British Association Of Counselling Psychotherapy (MBACP) and adhere to their code of ethics. The best way to arrange an appointment is to call me on my mobile or landline. If you like you can text me and suggest a suitable time for me to call you back and we can have a brief discussion about your situation. If I am unable to answer your call, please leave a message and I will call you back promptly and discreetly. You may also email me or text me and I will answer your query as quickly as possible.
I am a registered practitioner with Bupa, Aviva, AXA PPP, Pruhealth and Cigna for private health insurance.
