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.
