Daniel Wiegand MA (MBACP) Person-Centred counsellor
Life can be challenging at times and can affect mental health, relationships and confidence. If you're finding things difficult, I'm here to listen. Working together, I can help you grow and discover better ways of being.
By providing you with empathy, compassion and acceptance, I can help you understand your thoughts and experiences better and so aid you in your personal growth and development. Counselling can give you:
- more inner resources and more ability to cope with difficulties.
- an improved relationship with yourself and others.
- a greater understanding of your emotions and experiences.
- a sense of relief through sharing a burden and being heard and understood.
Counselling isn't easy but the fact you're reading this shows that you want to change, and that maybe you'd like some help in doing that.
I you'd like a free 20 minute telephone consultation, get in touch via email or phone to arrange a time for a chat and we can go from there.
Getting in touch doesn't mean any commitment on your behalf and won't cost you a penny, and I offer the first session at half rate.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP).
I previously worked as a counsellor at the East London Out Project and was a volunteer for SAGE in New York City where I also studied Focusing-Oriented Therapy. My Focusing experience means I work in a mindful way, paying attention to what is being experienced in the body.
I have a positive difference in many people's lives who have come to me for help with issues including:
- Stress and anxiety.
- Feeling sad.
- Relationship issues.
- LGBTQ+ issues.
- Gender issues.
- Supporting the elderly.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
