Nathan Burt MBACP
My family tree has its roots shared equally between Newcastle on my Mums side, and and East London on my Dads. Having grown up and worked in various parts of greater London, I eventually settled in Sussex in 1999. I'm father to two grown up daughters and endeavour to retain balance through my relationships with family and friends, literature, music, exercise and a deep affection for my work, nature and learning.
My professional background is two-fold. I worked in the creative sector for 25 years, developing a part-time job while at school within a print and design business, into international roles within creative and media agencies. Managing complexity in pressurised environments eventually led to leading teams and mentoring individuals.
Navigating personal loss in 2011 re-engaged an earlier passion for psychology and human behaviour that in turn, inspired me to attend university as a mature student to train as a Counselling Psychotherapist.
Having studied humanistic psychodynamic and existential theories, my approach goes far beyond talking through problems. Sessions are tailored - combining open dialogue, body focusing, visualisation, creative expression and psycho-education as needed.
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, and providing workshops for teams and organisations ever since. I continue to study human behaviour and evolutionary psychology, exploring new
approaches that help process stress and encourage growth.
