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 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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Areas of counselling I deal with
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.
I charge £35 for students, or for individuals in receipt of benefits.
I work from home offering counselling sessions from Monday through to Saturday morning. I have flexible working hours to fit alongside the busy lives clients may have.
