Steve Delaney : Senior Accredited Counsellor (BACP) & Group Analyst (IGA)
Update 22 June 2021
I am continuing to offer clients video and telephone appointments and I am planning to resume face to face sessions in September.
Hello, I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and have over 20 years of experience in private practice. I can work with a wide range of difficulties and I specialise in helping people with relationship issues. I also have extensive experience working in GP counselling, NHS psychotherapy services and within higher education as a student and staff counsellor. I am a senior accredited psychotherapist with the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy and a qualified Group Analyst with the Institute of Group Analysis.
Take a look at my website for more information.
Depending on what you are looking for I can offer short-term counselling or longer-term psychotherapy. You can contact me by phone or email or you can book an appointment directly from my website. I would be happy to explore if counselling or psychotherapy would be helpful for you.
Group Psychotherapy in Sheffield / Places available
The group currently meets once a week via zoom at the moment.
I also offer group psychotherapy for individuals who would like to work on their relationships with others.
Currently, there are two places available for new members to join this weekly psychotherapy group. Group therapy can offer people a real sense of belonging and a safe environment to explore and develop their relationships with others. The group currently meets via zoom on a weekly basis on Thursday evenings from 5.30pm – 7pm.
I have added a link below with more information about the group and how to book an exploratory appointment.
Specialist areas of work
Helping people improve their relationships
The type of counselling and psychotherapy I offer has a central focus of helping people understand their relationship behaviours. During therapy, people move on from unhealthy ways of coping and negative relationship patterns to develop new and healthy ways of being with others.
Undiagnosed medical conditions
I am interested in working with people who have suffered with undiagnosed medical problems. Doctors have traditionally described these conditions as psychosomatic, which can feel dismissive and frustrating for patients. I have worked with clients in the past who have suffered from these issues and counselling has been helpful in alleviating their symptoms. I have also worked successfully with people who have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and ME.
Practical skills to manage anxiety and depression
I have experience of helping people learn practical skills to reduce their anxiety and stress levels. This type of approach is helpful for people who want to learn new ways of coping with depressive feelings.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
