Daniel Wiegand (MBACP)Person-Centred counsellor practicing in E1, E8 and EC1V
335 City Road
I know from my own experience how confusing it can be looking for a counsellor. It’s a decision that involves finding someone you feel you can trust and work with. With that in mind, let me share with you a little about myself and how I work.
I work in a person-centred way and one of my beliefs is that every individual has the capacity to fulfil their potential. However, sometimes our life experiences and how we’re taught to think about ourselves can prevent this from happening. This can then cause stress, anxiety and other issues. Working collaboratively with me in a safe and confidential space can help you reconnect with your potential and lead a more fulfilling life.
If you’re interested in having counselling with me then our initial contact would be by either email or phone followed by us meeting for a session to discuss in more detail what has brought you to counselling. This is an opportunity for us to get a sense of the way we would work together and to think about what the best way forward for you is.
I have worked for many years as an honorary therapist and volunteer for the LGBTQ+ community both here in London and in New York City. I gained my counselling qualifications in Person-Centred Therapy in London and then I further studied Focusing-Oriented Therapy in New York City. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am bound by their Ethical Framework.
I offer a safe and supportive space where you can share with me your feelings and experiences that you may not be able to share elsewhere. Working in a person-centred way, I will offer you empathy, acceptance and warmth as you explore what has brought you to counselling.
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 also have an MA in Text and Performance and a BA Hons in English Studies and Publishing.
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.
The people I have worked with have come to me for help with issues including:
- Stress and anxiety.
- Feeling sad.
- Relationship issues.
- LGBTQ+ issues.
- Gender issues.
- Supporting the elderly.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Relationship issues
To see if you’re happy and comfortable working with me, the initial session will be £50. Following sessions will be £60 and each session will be 50 minutes. If you decide to work with me, some clients choose six to eight sessions before reviewing whether they would like to continue.
