Nathan Burt MBACP
Experinced therapist and breathwork guide

My professional background is two-fold. I worked in the creative sector for 25 years, developing a part-time job while still at school, into international roles within print, creative and media agencies. Managing complexity in pressurised environments eventually led me to leading teams and mentoring individuals.

Navigating personal loss in 2011 re-engaged an earlier passion for psychology, human behaviour and therapeutic approaches to overwhelm. In time this led me to attend university as a mature student to train as a Counselling Psychotherapist.

Having studied and practised humanistic, psychodynamic, existential and bodywork theories, my approach goes far beyond talking through problems. Sessions are tailored individually - combining open dialogue, bodywork, breathwork, visualisation, emdr, creative expression and educational insights 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 and explore the interplay between mind and body.

Personally, my family tree has its roots shared equally between Newcastle and East London. Having grown up and worked in various parts of greater London, I eventually settled in Sussex in 1999. I'm fortunate to be a Dad to two hugely inspiring daughters, and retain balance (mostly) through a deep affection for my work, alongside my close relationships with friends, family, nature and learning.
