Adam Hurst (MA, UKCP reg.)
I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapist and work with people of all ages, including Children and Adolescents. Psychotherapy is a safe, confidential space for people to explore anything on their minds.
There may be a need or want to do this because of some difficulties in life that feel too much, or confusing events or feelings that seem to keep recurring. Thinking about the underlying meanings behind these events and feelings can add light to what was previously unexplained, and add depth and understanding to our lives. The aim is to overcome the obstacles that prevent someone from being able to thrive and fulfil their potential.
I work with people with wide ranging experiences and difficulties. Someone may have experienced some sort of trauma, or perceive something in a traumatic way. They may be struggling with depression, anxiety, or low mood, and not know why. Sometimes people wish to explore more about their inner lives, looking at what may cause conflict within themselves, or with others.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified integrative child, adolescent, and adult psychotherapist and have specialist training in working with children as well as adults.
MA in Integrative Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychotherapy.
My training is integrative and so encompasses mostly Psychodynamic and Humanistic approaches, and when working with children includes working in a variety of forms such as play, sandtray and the arts. I also undertake my own Jungian analysis which influences my work.
I have 6 years experience working with Children and Adults, from quite seriously traumatised children, through to working with adults who are looking to explore more deeply into their lives and experience.
5 years of this was working with children and adults in an all boys EBD (Emotional, Behavioural Difficulties) school, where many of the children had suffered some sort of early trauma.

I offer a small amount of reduced fee places depending on financial circumstances which can be discussed.
I have a 48 hour cancellation policy where if sessions are cancelled within 48 hours they will be charged if they cannot be rearranged.
Sessions last for one hour for adults, 50 mins for children and adolescents, and normally occur once a week at the same time and place.
If you would like to get in touch to discuss working with me further please do, either by phone or email. I am also happy to meet for an initial session before organising ongoing sessions. For Children I offer 4 assessment sessions before commencing any further with long term psychotherapy.
The way I work with children can vary from the adult work, encompassing play, sandtray and the arts. I use two therapy rooms, one in the Mill road area of Cambridge, and the other in Chesterton. I also work with children in several different schools in and around Cambridge.
I am registered with the UKCP and adhere to their code of ethics. I receive regular supervision from a UKCP registered Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and Supervisor.
