Jovana is passionate about education and business development. Her role at UKCP, which is part of the Senior Management Team and Executive Committee, is to enhance our individual and organisational membership offers and benefits, and create new corporate and educational partnerships. She will also be looking at ways to help our organisational members promote their courses by developing and implementing innovative educational platforms, which will also increase public awareness of psychotherapies.

Before joining us, Jovana worked for a private higher education institution as Principal, Business Lecturer and Programme Leader for undergraduate and postgraduate business studies. Her responsibilities included looking after strategic business and educational development, managing partnerships and improving service, quality and standards across the organisation.

She is a co-founder of UKCP Higher Education Special Interest Group (HESIG) which promotes collaborative work in key areas relevant to the mental health of students and staff in higher education. To find out more about this special interest group, please do get in touch by emailing if you would like to discuss or be involved with this initiative.
