Sue Burchett is a humanistic counsellor, accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP).
I have over 10 years of counselling experience. At the outset of my career, I volunteered as a counsellor in Brighton working with local agencies supporting individuals affected by substance misuse and later with clients affected by HIV. During this time, I enjoyed working with a wide range of clients from different backgrounds and I welcome working with a diverse and broad client base.
I see clients who are experiencing anxiety, ADD/ADHD, addictions, bereavement, cancer, childhood trauma, depression, disability, family relationships, health-related issues, life coaching, long Covid, personal development, PTSD, redundancy, relationships, self-esteem, substance misuse, HIV/sexual health and identity, stress, trauma and work-related issues. I also enjoy working with transpersonal psychology including mindfulness, spirituality and Buddhism.
I specialise in counselling autistic adults and their partners and/or family members. I am currently a Specialist Autism Counsellor with Islington Autism Hub.
I am also a Specialist Autism Employment Mentor and a student 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.
In 2019, I became a volunteer mentor with the probation services working alongside autistic offenders for a year.
I am based in Brighton and currently see clients face to face near Queens Park in Brighton and also work online on Skype and Zoom and via the telephone as preferred.
