About me 

I am a someone who will always find something good in everyone!
 And I would like to build a space where you could start seeing this too: see the good in yourself, the people & world around us!
 I believe that as we transition through life, our sense of self is in a continuous state of changing and adapting, inherently experiencing a sense of loss with each change. In times like these, counselling & psychotherapy can make the transition smoother to navigate.

  Although I might know myself (and continue working on this) and have strategies to help other people navigate the complex labyrinth of their most hidden thoughts and emotions, you are the expert in how you feel. I am not here to tell  you what to do, but to join you while you face your dilemmas and change the narrative as you wish!

As I am a bilingual Counsellor/Psychotherapist (working in both English and Romanian), I value diversity and I hope this will continue to allow me to integrate flexibility & authenticity in my counselling work. 

My personal story starts in Romania, where I first built a career in Journalism. Forever passionate about people and curious by nature, I moved to the UK with the hope to train as a psychologist/psychotherapist. Ten years later, while studying, volunteering &working in various mental health settings, I stand before you with the same passion I had when I was four years old and I told my first story in front of a class full of children. This is when I first learnt about the power of words & silences, this is when I first knew that  sharing an emotion with other people is such an unique and monumental experience, the joy of human connection!
