Ian Michie is a BACP ( British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) accredited therapist with a background in the media industry, offering short term therapy for anxiety and depression or longer Psychodynamic psychotherapy.

Ian worked as an actor for over twenty years in theatre, TV, film and radio. He has personal experience of the stresses and demands of the entertainment industry and can quickly understand the dynamics of the profession and offer insight and solutions to individuals seeking support. He works with individuals and couples and has helped creative professionals including actors, technicians, vocalists and instrumental musicians. He has worked as a therapist in various settings from an addictions unit to a busy GP practice. Whilst training as a therapist he worked for over six years at a busy residential crisis unit, which provided short-term crisis intervention for adults from all backgrounds. He is also a Critical Incident consultant offering on site support after a traumatic event.

“My approach is psychodynamic/analytical. This means gaining understanding from both the conscious and the unconscious. Sometimes we can get involved in unhelpful patterns in relationships which we are unwittingly contributing to. Psychodynamic psychotherapy enables a greater understanding of our subconscious and allows us to bring some of this ‘unknown’ material to the surface so that we can gain greater awareness and make changes. For short term work I mainly focus on the ‘here and now’ and together we identify the main themes that need to be looked at. Long term work involves looking at both the past and the present and exploring things on a deeper level.”
