Jude Adcock MBACP (accred.) PG Dip. Ed. Couns, Dip ASIIP Couns.
Originally an Adlerian trained counsellor I offer integrative counselling and psychotherapy to individuals or couples. I have a comfortable ground floor counselling room and can offer flexible hours. As a registered and accredited member of the BACP I adhere to their ethical framework.
My professional development is important to me so I can continue to offer my clients the best service I possibly can. Alongside regular training courses I am currently studying for my Masters in child and adolescent psychotherapeutic counselling at the University of Cambridge.
Although I am trained to work with a wide range of issues I have particular interest in working with emotional trauma, bereavement, LGBT and young people. It can often be beneficial to work with the creative arts and I am trained specifically in this area; particularly helpful for children and young people but not exclusively!
I am passionate about my work and very much enjoy working with people who are finding life generally challenging or who have a particular issue they need support with. My style of counselling is to work collaboratively using encouragement, creativity and gentle challenging with a strong sense of respect and autonomy. I believe we all have the ability to find the answers ourselves, sometimes we just need a little help in getting there.
