In recovery from addiction to alcohol and drugs himself since 1996, Mike Delaney has had first-hand experience of the devastating effects of addiction on an individual and their loved ones and is passionate about helping others to succeed in recovery. He has had vast experience working with sufferers of alcohol, drug, sex and gambling addiction, eating disorders, depression, trauma and co-dependency.
Mike treats each client as an individual, conducting an initial assessment of their needs in order to help identify the core issues underpinning their addiction. A personalised therapy plan will then be agreed, supported by a range of therapeutic interventions including one-to-one work, group sessions, and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy as required.
Treatments available include;
Residential treatment runs 7 days a week – and includes a wide range of different modalities, designed to achieve the greatest transformational effect in the shortest time possible. Programmes range from between 4 and 6 weeks – although the length of stay is defined by the individual and their needs; longer stays are, of course, available for those who need it.
Following treatment, Bayberry’s aftercare programme continues for a full year – providing ongoing support, relapse prevention and guidance.

As Clinical Director of Priority Health, Mike has access to consulting rooms at the following locations;
In the heart of Birmingham’s ‘Medical Quarter’, Priority Health’s beautiful consulting room is based within a gorgeous Georgian building, just off the Hagley Road, with on street and on-site free parking.
The iconic Harley Street is world-renowned for excellence in care. The consulting room at Number 1 Harley Street is conveniently located for clients in the capital.
An oasis of calm and tranquility, Consulting Rooms at The Manor, near Birmingham NEC, are convenient for those South of the city.
The need was identified for specialist staff to deal with the complex issues and behaviours which may accompany substance misuse; the result of this work being ‘The Dorabella Model’, a specialist model of residential treatment that is totally focused on the individual needs of each client. Following a modular system, it addresses all potential areas of need including educational needs, life-skills, cognitive skills, behavioural needs, emotional needs and social skills.
Unfortunately, due to the politics of funding and severe cuts to public funding, The Dorabella Model had to be shelved as, despite many clients wishing to avail of the service, no organisation would support the cost required to help this vulnerable group.
