Joanna Stankovich MBACP
I am a person centred counsellor and am fully committed to support and facilitate others in exploring any issues, challenges, life events and relationships. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy and abide by their ethical framework for the counselling professions.
Counselling is a safe place that is fully confidential where clients can explore their thoughts and feelings without being judged. I will really listen to you, allow you the private space and time for expression and exploration. Together we can explore what options you have and the possible outcomes of implementing any changes... Together we can build a therapeutic alliance.

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.

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).
