Jade Taylor | Our Practitioners
Hello, thank you for taking the time to come and read a bit more about me.
Predominately I am a Person-Centred Counsellor, integrating methods such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Art Therapy, and other creative methods.
What is counselling? Well, it is a space where you or you child can come, be yourself and discuss anything that is important to you. I will support you to access your feelings, find clarity when you are unsure and hold any uncertainties you may have.
Each counsellor is unique. Yes, they may be trained in the same schooling, but it is our individual personalities that is the most crucial aspect. We can not like everyone we meet, and it is important to feel a connection with your counsellor. True they may annoy you sometimes because they challenge you, but you like them and trust that they have your best interests at heart, and this (of course, along with specialist knowledge) is what counselling is all about.
I support Adults, Children and Families, through either online, outdoor sessions, or face-to-face. I qualified as a counsellor in 2007, but I have also had a parallel career working with children and families, for over 20 years, including management of a team supporting young people who exhibit sexually harmful behaviours. I have been supported the most vulnerable young people and most extreme of behaviours. I have supported in schools, including young people who are neurodiverse: e.g. Asperger’s, ASD and LD. My main specialisms are abuse and trauma.
I only take a certain (small) number of clients, adults, or children, this is to ensure that the counselling process stays personal and does not become muddied. I hold a waiting list for anyone who is interested when I am currently full. Please contact to enquire. I also hold concession places for those who need the support but find the sessions beyond their financial means. Again, please do get in touch, and we can discuss further.
I have over 100+ specialist trainings, as well as qualifications in every sector I have worked. So please head to my website for further details

A little about me:
Realistically I began my journey to become a Counsellor when I was a child, witnessing the struggle my Mother went through as a Social Worker. Endlessly trying to do the right thing yet untwining the inevitable aftermath. I watched the effects of the choices that were made for children and at the age of 15 I decided I wanted to be a Counsellor. I loved training, as difficult and eye opening as it was, I loved it. I continuously go through my own Counselling/Therapy to ensure that I am practicing ethically and professionally.
I am advertised via the BACP Directory, Counselling Directory, Psychology Today, Jade Taylor Creative Counselling Facebook Business Page and of course via my own website.

What People Say
I was very impressed by the service from Integral Health. I was contacted and offered an appointment immediately after contacting the centre. Ben Calder gave me excellent advice and managed to sort out my issues in only one session.I would highly recommend this clinic.
I would like to thank Wan, for a deep tissue and stone massage, it's an experience that I've never had before, already booked for next week, I would recommend this to anyone, please look at there website as there are numerous things to do within the complex.
Went very well. Was very happy with how friendly and welcoming it all was, and the treatment was at the highest quality.
Went there yesterday for my first yoga session. It's a great little place. Didn't know it was there until a few months ago. I also go there often to have a massage which I love!
I highly recommend the Centre for Integral Health. I've been here for multiple sessions with Ben Calder, and honestly, you need to go and experience it for yourself. Friendly, professional and just a generally positive experience all around! The Centre offers such a range of services, I can't wait to try out a few of the other therapies they offer!
I am sure that if it wasnt for your classes, the function in my left bicep would have not come back. Also I would have not been able to recover from my chemotherapy so quickly, I can not thank you enough.
Before I had a series of Bowen sessions I had lived with lower back pain and discomfort for over ten years. I chose the Bowen technique as I wanted to be treated by a practitioner who understood that the body is a whole system. The technique itself is not invasive or stressful on the body as the underlying approach is that with the right support, time and gentle encouragement the body can heal.
Love the Qigong classes Ben runs. Professional, safe and informative. Thanks Ben
Great service from Ben and his team. If you want your aches and pains sorting out or if you feel your life just isn't in balance you really should give Integral Health a try...
Got an appointment through really quickly. The staff were really friendly and made the procedures and testing easy to understand throughout, step by step. Really pleased with the outcome. Finally got the answers I was looking for and would highly recommend.
Had several neuro-energetic kinesiology appointments at the Centre and found the experience to be very beneficial and eye-opening. Would recommend to anyone. 5 star
I had four Bowen sessions each about three weeks apart, after the first session I felt a notable difference in my posture and in the strength of my spine, strangely I felt taller. By the fourth session I knew that my discomfort had been resolved and I am now able to move much more freely and flexibly without worrying about my back.
Wow! As I left my session with the amazingly knowledgeable Ben Calder I said: I feel lighter! I feel so light because I now know what my body does and does not like. I cannot stop talking to everyone about how amazing Ben is! Everyone should go and see him! What an amazing soul Ben is! Super grateful that our lives crossed
I used the centre to help training and preparation for a marathon. As well as getting some great advice around technique and training, I was also introduced to Bowen Technique which helped repair a slight hamstring injury and also Kinesiology which allowed me to design a bespoke training diet. Would definitely recommend.
I've been working with Ben for just over a year now and have found his support incredibly helpful. Most recently, Ben has taught me specific techniques for managing emotional response and staying calm and in control during moments of extreme pressure. Ben's walk and talk sessions are fantastic and I would highly recommend him!
