Michelle Lacy

I have been working as a psychodynamic psychotherapist since 2005, providing short-term counselling and long-term psychotherapy to clients with a wide range of needs. These include: anxiety, panic, stress, depression, bereavement, sexuality, relationship and interpersonal difficulties, self-esteem, loneliness, hoarding, early trauma, history of physical or sexual abuse, breakdown, anger, self-harm.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and listed on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapist, accredited by the Department of Health. In addition to working in private practice, I am also a psychotherapist with Richmond Borough Mind. Prior to this, I spent 5 years as a psychodynamic psychotherapist in the Talking Therapies Service at Wpf Therapy.

My professional training was undertaken at Wpf Therapy, one of Britain’s top accredited training institutions, with a reputation for clinical and academic excellence. I hold a BACP accredited Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from Wpf Therapy as well as a BACP accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Studies from Roehampton University.

I originally trained as a radio journalist, but have also worked extensively in the voluntary and public sector developing, managing and delivering services for people with special needs prior to becoming a psychotherapist.
