About me

Face-to-face, online, telephone and outdoor sessions available in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.


15 years qualified as a Counsellor. I work in Schools as well as being a Adult Employee Assist Counsellor.


Feeling overwhelmed or it's just all feels too much and you're not sure why? Lockdown and worry has just made everything so much harder? I appreciate how hard it is right now, especially if there was already worry and other stresses going on before Covid. It's like carrying a heavy rucksack of negative thoughts and feelings and not knowing how to put it down. I offer you a safe space where you can talk about how your feel, the thoughts you have, and try and make sense of them. You are the expert of you, I will support you to find your own answers and discover who you are and why you feel this way. I am specifically trained in Person-Centred theory, but I also have training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and using creative (artistic) methods. I will always adapt to what suits you and what you need to find your own answers and peace. It is important you find a counsellor that you feel comfortable with, someone you feel you can truly open up to and someone who understands you. This is your time and your trust to give to someone. Initially we will speak on the phone and see if we feel a connection before we then schedule a first meet and start our time together from there.


Parents: I have been working with children from (7-18+ years old) and families for over 20 years. I engage very well with all children, and I have often been told they feel comfortable with me and want to talk to me. I can adapt my communication accordingly and have supported the most difficult of behaviours and mental health concerns. (please refer to my website for full list of specialist training and career experience).

Again, we will speak on the phone and discuss how counselling works and what you hope to gain from counselling. I will then meet your child and we will then agree whether we feel a connection and wish to proceed. We will then meet weekly (unless agreed otherwise). Some children have come with specific topics they wish to discuss and have reached their own conclusion within a few sessions, some children need longer and find it hard to face and process their emotions. We will discuss this more when we initially talk.

With your child’s permission, I can work with CAMHS/BeeU and we will have reviews and communicate throughout, while making sure we give you child confidentiality.

I specialise in:

Self-injury and eating disorders

Obsessional tendencies


Difficult behaviours

I can support almost all concerns that are brought to the counselling room because counselling skills are not limited to certain subjects to achieve positive changes and understanding. Please see my website for full details.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as a Person-Centred Counsellor in 2007. Since then I have gained qualifications in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Gestalt therapy and Art/ Creative Therapy. All of which qualify me as a talking-focused counsellor, that can integrate different skills, including using creative methods.

Throughout my career I have undergone a vast range of over 100 specialist training certificates which is available to view on my website.  https://www.jadetaylorcreativecounselling.com/training

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


National Counselling Society (NCS)

The National Counselling Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


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.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
