Dr Jess Haskins HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist
I am a HCPC registered counselling psychologist and clinical supervisor, with over 15 years experience as a group and individual therapist in mental health services. I am trained in a number of different modalities, which means that I tailor my therapy to suit your needs and wants. The most important aspect for me is the relationship between us, so that you feel safe to share your issues and work together. I offer respect, warmth and empathy to help you build a trusting relationship with me, so that you can talk through whatever is on holding you back. You are the expert in your experience, so I will work with you to decide on a course of action to empower you to make positive changes, going at your own pace.
Depending on your issues and preferences we may work in the here and now, or look at some of the historical reasons for your current issues. I generally work with clients on a weekly basis, though some clients require more or less frequent sessions. I work from my discrete therapy room in Knowle, and also from Bristol Talking Therapy Rooms on the Harbourside (BS1): https://bristoltalkingtherapyrooms.co.uk
I offer clinical supervision to therapists and trainees, and can also offer reflective practice sessions to staff groups. I also offer bespoke training to organisations.

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.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I offer an initial session at a reduced cost of £35 so you and I can chat about what our expectations are. It is important that you find someone that is the right fit for you, and there is no obligation to continue should you feel I am not the right psychologist for you.
Ongoing sessions are charged at £90. I offer a limited number of low-cost sessions for those in financial hardship.
