Counselling and psychotherapy

There are many things which might make us feel we are not living life to the full. Challenging life problems, addictive practices, the loss of someone close to us or just plain old feeling down.

Through my counselling and psychotherapy work, I help people deal with these issues and find their own way forward.

It’s time for you to start living life to the full again.



Move ahead with your life

Therapy helps people to address conscious and unconscious issues, enabling them to find a path to move ahead with their lives, positively and confidently.

I use a range of integrative counselling and psychotherapy techniques, tailored to suit the unique needs of each client.


Intersections of Privilege and Otherness in Counselling and Psychotherapy

by Dr Dwight Turner

Intersections of Privilege and Otherness in Counselling and Psychotherapy presents an in-depth understanding of the role of privilege, and of the unconscious experience of privilege and difference within the world of counselling and psychotherapy.

Supervisory services and workshops

I provide supervisory services to fellow counsellors and psychotherapists, supporting day to day work and helping to develop careers.

As well as my role as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Brighton, I am also available to run workshops for organisations and groups. These focus on aspects of privilege, otherness, equality, diversity and intersectionality.


The latest from my blog

Decolonising Me III: Black Isolation and the Inner Child

30 June 2022
This month we look at the pain of the inner child through a black lens, and how this wound, when unresolved, leads to an absence of adult relationships.

Decolonising Me II: Escaping the Homoerotic Shackles of the White Male Gaze

30 May 2022
Through Twitter, I picked up a challenge to write about what it is like to be part of the sexual fantasies of cishet white men, and its impact upon men of colour. This is an early exploration of this taboo topic.

#DecoloniseThis I: Clothing and Colonialism

28 April 2022
This months blog begins a longer exploration of just how colonised we all are. Focusing in on the importance of clothing, how we dress, and who we dress for, this month looks at one of the more subtle areas of cultural and psychological colonisation.

A Father’s Song: An Ode from a Dad to his Daughter

31 March 2022
We don't talk enough about fatherhood. Whilst we often discuss what it is to be black, what it is to be oppressed, and the cost of the absent father, we rarely consider the positives in black fatherhood. This blog, this personal rendition from a black father, looks at this experience of black masculinity. It is my gift to the black fathers everywhere.

Being Black VIII: Self-Abuse and the Adapted Other

3 March 2022
Within psychotherapy, we underestimate the power that socially constructed aspects of our identity have upon us. With their inherent power dynamics, the challenge to adapt, to fit in, can ultimately become a caged bondage of our own making, if we are not careful, where we seek out others who delight in taking on the keys to our cells on our behalf.

Being Black VII: Surviving Echoism in an Age of Supremacy

3 February 2022
Given that this month marks 1 Year since the publication of #Mockingbird, i wanted to write something to mark the occasion; not necessarily something celebratory, but something which speaks of the journey from echo to authentic.
