Steve Delaney : Senior Accredited Counsellor (BACP) & Group Analyst (IGA)
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: www.stevedelaney.co.uk
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 to make an appointment. I would be happy to explore if counselling or psychotherapy would be helpful for you.
If you are interested in group therapy then get in touch. There are places currently available in the group that I run and I would be happy to explore if this type of approach would be helpful for you.
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.
