Nathan Burt MBACP
I specialise in providing support and insight to help people process a variety of psychological symptoms - through open and creative expression. Enabling them to strengthen the relationship they have with themselves and the world at large.
My professional background is twofold. For 25 years I worked in the creative sector and was fortunate enough to grow a weekend job during school into international roles for corporate brands and advertising networks. Managing projects in pressurised environments evolved into leading teams and mentoring individuals. During 2011 the need to navigate personal loss connected me to ‘The Road Less Travelled' by M. Scott Peck, something I'd read in 1997 and one of many influences that inspire and inform my work.
Navigating the above eventually prompted my decision to formally train as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist at Regents University in 2013 - including a clinical placement at Waterloo Community Counselling. Upon qualifying with the bacp, I transitioned careers during 2016 by integrating all my experience to start The Unsaid Space. I've spent over 4200 therapeutic hours working with individuals privately, as well as on-site in businesses running clinics and educational workshops. I work in a creative and integrative way and continue to study human psychology and behaviour extensively.
For me, challenge and inspiration are found through my work and time spent with my partner friends family and especially the privilege of being dad to two daughters. I'm passionate about how physical movement can support mental health as well as the power of cycling to create positive change socially. I ride regularly, as well as enjoying yoga, reading, anything musical and good wine/rum - although rarely at the same time.
I am a registered member of the bacp (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and adhere their code of ethical conduct.
