Nathan Burt MBACP

Choosing professional support can be a confusing process, as such I hope that what follows may be of help.

I grew up in Greater London and settled in Sussex in 1999. I'm a father to two grown up daughters and find meaning through my relationships, my work, nature, the arts, exercise and learning.

My professional background is two-fold. I worked in the creative sector for 25 years, developing a weekend job during school into international roles within agencies and brands. Managing complexity in pressurised environments eventually led to leading teams and mentoring individuals.

Navigating personal loss in 2011 re-engaged an earlier passion with psychology and human behaviour that in turn, later inspired me to attend university as a mature student to train as a Counselling Psychotherapist.

I studied humanistic psychodynamic and existential theories so my approach goes far beyond talking through problems. Sessions are tailored - combining open dialogue, body focusing, visualisation, creative expression and psycho-education as appropriate. 

I transitioned careers in 2017 to start The Unsaid Space and qualify with the bacp (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I've been working with individuals, as well as providing on-site clinics and workshops for teams and organisations ever since. I continue to study human behaviour and particularly our evolutionary roots, alongside any evidenced approaches that minimise mental and emotional distress, and/or encourage growth.
