Mike Delaney is skilled and experienced Mental Health/Addictions Therapist with over 45 years’ experience working with hospitals, individuals, rehabilitation centres and professional bodies in the UK and internationally.

He is a Registered Member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and has recently retired his Nursing Registration, which he held for 38yrs. He has also recently been awarded Fellow ACCPH (Accredited Counsellors, Coaches, Psychotherapists and Hypnotherapists)

Until 2018 he had a successful private practice in Harley Street London, and provided training for a number of Organisations including Veterans Aid in London and for a number of years was a Director of Pathways Supported Housing in Weston-super-Mare and LEAP Equine Therapeutic Programmes Ltd.

From 2012 to 2015 Mike was CEO and Clinical Director of Bayberry Ltd, a multi-site Residential Treatment provider and in 2015 he returned to his Private Practice with offices in London’s Harley St London and Edgbaston in Birmingham.

In 2018, Mike Joined CEO Martin Preston to develop a new and innovative addictions treatment model, rooted in trauma informed practice, empathy and compassion. Delamere, the UKs first purpose-built addictions treatment and mental wellbeing clinic, opened its doors in 2020 and has shown impressive outcomes with over 200 individuals engaging in residential treatment.

Through his wide experience of working with trauma and addictions, Mike firmly believes in taking a somatic approach to treating these disorders and has had great success with clients who have complex PTSD and addictions using Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy. He has also recently partnered with David Parker, a renowned somatic breathworker, to combine Breathwork and Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy. The results were very encouraging and they both intend to do further research in the future. Mike believes that trauma is held in the physical body and therefore needs to be released through the body as well as at a cognitive level.

Mike gives talks and presents papers on EFP/L in the UK and abroad, including a presentation of a LEAP research paper to the Royal College of Psychiatrists Conference around the efficacy of EFP for young people who have experienced childhood sexual trauma and who have then become sexually harmful to other children

In recovery himself from addiction to alcohol and drugs since 1996, Mike has had first-hand experience of the devastating effects of addiction on an individual and their loved ones and is passionate about using his vast practical and theoretical expertise to help others to succeed in recovery, whether it be from alcohol, drugs, depression, sex, co-dependency, food or gambling.

In 2018 Mike returned to his native Scotland where he has private practices in Glasgow and Edinburgh

In 2020 he formed Equi-Scotia, a Community Interest Company which provides training so that communities can benefit from Equine Facilitated Learning and Development as a way of managing a range of mental health conditions such as anxiety.

Over the last 20yrs, Mike had been involved in contributing to many tv documentaries including Bafta award winning “Lager, Mum and Me”, Channel 4’s “Beauty and The Beast” and Channel 5’s “The Comeback of Ant McPartlin”
