Mike Delaney

Mike Delaney (Reg MBACP) is one of the leading figures in the field of Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy in the UK and a pioneer in innovative, highly successful treatment methods. He and Ella Jones brought together their knowledge, experience and clinical expertise to create the Ofqual-regulated Level 5 Diploma in Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy - the LEAP Method, the only regulated and recognised EFP training in the UK specifically for mental health professionals.

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.
