Jade Taylor MBACP Integrated Counsellor - Adults, Children and Families
COVID-19 UPDATE: Where needed, I offer reduced sessions rates. £30-£50. Online, telephone and outdoor sessions available in Shrewsbury, Shropshire
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. Yes, I am specifically trained in person-centred, cbt and using creative (artistic) methods: but so are many others. So what is important is finding a counsellor that you feel comfortable with. Someone you feel you can truly open up to and someone who understands you. I believe due to my down-to-earth personality matched with my years of knowledge and developed skills, I can be that person. Initially we will speak on the phone and see if we feel a connection and whether my skills match your needs. If they do not or we don’t feel a fit, then I will always recommend someone I feel would suit you. We will 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 their families for over 20 years. I engage very well with all children, and nearly all reportedly state they feel comfortable with me and want to continue sessions. 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.
I can work closely with CAMHS and I will have regular reviews and communication with parents throughout.
I specialise in:
Self-injury, inc eating disorders
Difficult behaviours (vast spectrum)
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 am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor in 2007. I also have qualifications in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Art Therapy, which qualifies me as a talking-focused counsellor, that can integrate different skills, including play and other creative methods.
Throughout my career I have undergone specialist training which is available to view on my website. https://www.jadetaylorcreativecounselling.com/training
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.
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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
In the past I have a been a online support worker for different forums and groups for people who deliberately self-injure, suffer with eating disorders and who have been diagnosed with a BPD.
My usual hourly fee is £50. However, due to the impact of Covid-19, I presently offer sessions for an amount between £30-£50, per hour 1:1 sessions, to anyone needs support during these times.
The initial session is only £20 and will last 30/40 minutes.
