Hi, I'm Jovana
I love knowing that I could make a significant difference in someone’s life, just by being human – listening and working together to create effective, meaningful strategies and individual goals.
I consider myself to be a bit of a ‘T-shaped person’ in the sense that whilst I am knowledgeable in many areas of psychology and associated treatments, my strength lies in my ability to assist people to identify their unique strengths, and assist them to become their best versions of themselves.
I specifically pride myself in being able to coach people to identify and more effectively utilise their unique strengths, whilst helping them work on their “blind spots” (I don’t believe in ‘weaknesses’).
