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.
