Counsellor in Brighton, Sue Burchett

I am a humanistic Counsellor in Brighton, accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP) and I have recently trained in Internal Family Systems and integrate this into my practice.

I have more than 14 years of counselling experience and enjoy working with a wide range of clients from different backgrounds. I specialise in working with neurodivergent adults and welcome working with a diverse and broad client base.

I work with clients who are affected by many different issues including: diagnosis of autism and/or ADHD – including late diagnosis, anxiety and depression, childhood trauma and bullying, PTSD and CPTSD, family relationships, health-related issues, redundancy and work-related challenges, relationships, self-esteem, sexual orientation and gender identity. When approrpriate, I work with transpersonal psychology including mindfulness, spirituality and Buddhism.

I currently work as a Specialist Autism Counsellor with the Autism Hub Islington and I am a Specialist Mentor at Brighton University as part of the Disability and Dyslexia team supporting young adults with autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia and mental health during their studies to achieve their full academic potential.

My practice is based in Brighton and I currently see clients face to face in counselling rooms near Queens Park and I also work online via Zoom. I look forward to you contacting me here.

I really cannot thank you enough for the journey you have enabled me to take. You have eased a lot of the pain that I was experiencing. I feel I have moved from a place of unrest to a place of greater understanding and things are beginning to calm. You have empowered me to move forward.”

I felt I could trust Sue and she made me feel significant and listened to”.
