My name is Jade Smith and I provide counselling and psychotherapy services in Kelbrook, Lancashire. Easily accessible for people coming from Colne, Barnoldswick, Earby and Skipton.
It can be a daunting experience deciding to take the step into counselling, therefore I aim to make the counselling space as comfortable as possible. As a therapist I provide a safe and confidential space where clients can open up and together we can explore the difficult feelings and emotions that may arise.
As an Integrative Psychotherapist I believe that not one type of therapy fits all, therefore bringing in techniques from different modalities of therapy, such as person-centred, CBT, Psychodynamic and Gestalt may provide clients with a greater therapeutic experience.
I am able to work with clients on a range of issues including: anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, work issues, relationship issues, health issues, stress, emotional abuse and general counselling.
During these uncertain times I will also be offering my counselling services online and via telephone for individuals who are struggling and still wish to access counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a B.A. (Hons) in Counselling & Psychotherapy.
I have a MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and am working towards my MA in Integrative Psychotherapy.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I have been working with a charitable organisation based in Colne for the past two years, offering my counselling services. Alongside this I work as a counsellor in a local primary school one day a week. I have recently set up my own private practice from home where I am able to with clients on a range of issues as stated above.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

I offer an initial free thirty minute consultation for clients so that we can meet and I can answer any questions you may have. This also gives the opportunity to work out if I would be the best therapist for you.
I charge £40 for a face to face counselling session.
£30 for phone call or zoom sessions
I charge £35 for students, or for individuals in receipt of benefits.
When I work
