Sue Burchett is a humanistic counsellor, accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP).
I have over 12 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 for a range of issues including: anxiety, ADHD, autism, addictions, bereavement, childhood trauma, depression, disability, family relationships, health-related issues, life coaching, personal development, PTSD, redundancy, relationships, self-esteem, 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/or their partners and/or family members and currently work as a Specialist Autism Counsellor with the Autism Hub Islington.
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.
In 2019, I became a volunteer mentor with the probation services working alongside autistic offenders for a year.
My practice is based in Brighton and I currently see clients face to face near Queens Park. I mainly work online via Skype and Zoom and on the telephone, whichever is preferred by the client. At the moment my practice is full but please get in touch if you’d like to join the waiting list.
