THERAPIES I OFFER
~ Online & in-person in Ealing, London ~
I guide women to explore their challenges and fall in love with their imperfections
Being human is not easy. Being a woman comes with its own set of challenges, expectations and confusion. Underneath the environmental and cultural conditioning, past challenges, and generational traumas you might not even be aware you are carrying hides the real you.
I use the Psychosynthesis model, a beautiful blend of psychology and un-dogmatic spirituality. What does this mean in terms of how I work? I see your challenges and struggles as something trying to emerge in your life, not as a disease that needs curing. I see you as a human being full of potential and a unique purpose in life that only you can fulfil. I also see you as a Soul on a human journey of self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-realisation.
The type of counselling I offer is psychotherapeutic, which means that it’s long term and more in-depth, as we will be exploring your struggles to get to the root of what is causing them. I use a neurodiverse framework and a holistic view that includes the connection between the mind, body and feelings. My work is intuitive, and apart from talking therapy, I might use creative techniques, meditation and energy work, to help you explore your challenges and inner world.
I will guide you to
Discover what is hiding underneath your struggles and anxieties
Connect with the parts of yourself that might feel ugly and unlovable and discover their unique gifts
Become aware of what stops you from developing deeper and more meaningful relationships
Find your unique voice and expression in the world
Fall in love with the whole of you and become your authentic self
Find your passion and your purpose in life
Other issues I work with: Co-dependency, generational trauma, high sensitivity, identity, loneliness, low confidence, low self-esteem, neurodiversity, relationships issues, sexuality & gender, sense of belonging, spirituality, work-related stress
I offer therapy in Romanian as well, and work online with women from & outside of the UK.
ENERGY THERAPY/ REIKI
I support women to release blockages from their body and mind, and heal themselves
Eastern traditions believe that energy exists in everything, all around and inside of us. Energy that flows when everything is in harmony, in nature and inside our bodies. When there is an emotional or mental imbalance, various health conditions can manifest in the body.
There are many energy work methods out there today, but the one I practice is a traditional one called Jikiden Reiki. It is a simple hands-on Japanese energy work method that optimises the body’s natural healing systems. It was developed in the 1920s by Mikao Usui in Japan, and today it is used all over the world in various forms.
Reiki can help with various physical or psychological issues. During a Reiki session, I will use my hands to find and focus on the areas in your body that have toxins or blockages.
I can offer support with many physical issues, including eczema, something I have been struggling with myself and am aware of the psychological impact it can have on someone.
The main psychological issues I work with are anxiety, social anxiety, low self-worth, depression, and lack of purpose and meaning. But, I can work with other psychological challenges as well. My psychotherapeutic counselling background and experience can help you to explore anything that comes up for you during the Reiki sessions.
Each course of treatment is unique, and the number of sessions will depend on how you respond to the treatment.
Both pleasant and painful experiences have shaped who I am today as I struggled with mental health issues myself while growing up. I was born in Timisoara, a beautiful city in the West of Romania, and moved to London in 2006.
In London, circumstances led me to work in Finance for over ten years in what now feels like another lifetime. Even though it was a rewarding experience in many ways, in my early 30s, I began to feel like my life lacked purpose and meaning. So, I decided to follow my passion for self-development, mental health and spirituality and enrolled in a Postgraduate course in Psychosynthesis counselling that lasted three years. I realised that I had ADHD traits during my training; this helped explain some of the struggles in my life and got me started on my journey of self-acceptance.
I have been aware of and attracted to energy therapies for many years. In 2020 I developed a sudden skin condition, and after not having too much luck with western medicine, I decided to try an alternative approach. I discovered Jikiden Reiki and began my deep self-healing journey. I then decided to become a Reiki practitioner.
On my journey of self-discovery, I met amazing people who supported me along the way, who held a safe and loving space for my true self to emerge. I hope I can offer you a similar space as you embark on your unique journey of connecting with your authentic self.
