Nathan Burt MBACP
I specialise in providing support and expertise to help people strengthen the relationship they have with themselves. Enabling them to process a variety of symptoms through open dialogue and creative expression.
My professional background is twofold. For 25 years I worked in the creative sector - over time I 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 family trauma connected me to ‘The Road Less Travelled' by M. Scott Peck, something I'd read initially in 1997 and one of many influences that inspire and inform my work.
Processing the above eventually prompted my decision in 2013 to formally train as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist at Regents University - including a 2 year clinical placement at Waterloo Community Counselling. Upon qualifying with the British Association (bacp) I transitioned careers during 2016 by integrating my previous experience with nutrition and bodywork to start ‘The Unsaid Space’. Since then I've spent over 4000 therapeutic hrs 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.
