THE MIND IS NOT THE ENEMY; IT IS HOW WE USE THE MIND THAT CAUSES THE DIFFICULTY

Welcome to Denis Lacey Therapy. I’m a mental health therapist located in down town Wellington central.

I am passionate about people’s spiritual; psychological; physical and emotional wellbeing and endeavour to help people with finding the key to unlock what is already truly known & possibly overlooked by overthinking. I hope to provide the necessary guidance in getting people where they need to get to - so they can live their potential and live the kind of lives they want to live NOW. 

My aim is to help my clients accomplish their goals in a relaxed and calm environment. I use a combination of various therapeutic modalities to help people on their journey.

I see the importance of ‘getting out of your mind and into your life’ with some urgency - so you can work with the mind rather than against it. ‘The mind is not the enemy; it is how we use the mind that causes the difficulty’.

I help you explore and access the innate wisdom within us all and bring forth your wise mind in moment to moment living.
