Jade Taylor

Integrated Counsellor MBACP Children, Young People and Adults

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor, qualified since 2007, but I also have qualifications in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Art Therapy. This qualifies me as a talking-focused counsellor, that can integrate different skills.  I have 18 years practical experience working with children and families, which include: psychiatric hospitals, living in care homes and groups within the community. I have also supported young people who are struggling with difficulties at school, inc Autism and Asperger's. I do offer counselling to adults and I specialise in anxiety, depression, self-injury, relationships and stress. Due to my career being built around Children and families then if you are a parent and need a space where you can talk about family worries then my knowledge and empathy could be suited to your needs.


I hold recognised qualifications from all settings where I have been privileged enough to work with Young People and I am a member of BACP and working towards my accreditation.

Throughout my career working with young people I have also gained a significant amount of important certificates through my continued professional development. Some Include:

  • Child Protection.
  • Arena of Safety.
  • Understanding and working with self-harm and suicidal ideation
  • Equal opportunities
  • Supporting ASD and Asperger's syndrome
  • Understanding Obsessive Compulsive Disorders
  • Addiction
  • Date Protection and Confidentiality
  • Eating disorders and establishing a positive sense of control
  • sexuality and identity
  • Working with Attachment Disorders
  • Sexualised behaviours

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. Throughout my 18 year career supporting children and young people and through my training to become a counsellor, I now have the maturity to appreciate how childhood experiences and trauma impacts beyond childhood years and so I offer counselling to adults as well as young people.

What People Say

Testimonials

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 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.

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.

Went very well. Was very happy with how friendly and welcoming it all was, and the treatment was at the highest quality.

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...

Love the Qigong classes Ben runs. Professional, safe and informative. Thanks Ben

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!

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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 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.
