Jude Adcock MBACP (accred.) Dip. Sup'v; M.Ed. Couns (Cantab); 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 professional development training courses I am currently a doctoral candidate studying at the Metanoia Institute for Psychotherapy and Research. My research interest is shame in childhood and the role of the school counsellor in promoting authenticity. I am also a qualified clinical supervisor.
Although I am trained to work with a wide range of issues I have particular interest in working with emotional trauma, shame, LGBT+ children (6+) 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 adults can find it very helpful too.
Driven from personal experiences in my own life 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 relationally using encouragement and respectful and gentle challenging whilst developing a felt sense of autonomy. I believe we all have the ability to find the answers ourselves, sometimes we just need a little help in getting there.

Creative Arts therapist
Originally I trained and qualified as an Adlerian Counsellor. However, with subsequent intensive training I now consider myself an integrative therapist drawing on a variety of modalites. This means I am able to understand my client from differing viewpoints and work to find the best therapeutic fit for them. I am qualified to work with adults and also hold the Master of Education in child & adolescent psychotherapeutic counselling. I have a particular interest in working with the LGBT+ community and child development. Having completed training in the use of clay and creative arts in therapy I offer the creative arts as one way to work within the therapeutic space. I was awarded a diploma in supervision and enjoy superivising both counsellors in training and those already qualified.
I run a thriving private practice from my comfortable counselling room in Cottenham, supervise for an established charity in Cambridge and set up and run a counselling service in a local primary school.
