ALOHA & GOOD DAY

Update the story you have about yourself. It's the hidden script that guides your life.

I am Raluca - a curious & joyful human with a strong belief that exploring your inner world and creating space for awareness leads to a more mindful and meaningful life.
Curious Psychologist. Mindful Recruiter. Wellbeing guide. Conscious explorer = the shorter versions of a multi-passionate millennial.
A bit more about me with clarity: currently based in Bucharest where I am combining several "roles" that I am really grateful to "play". My base foundations are as a psychologist and relational psychotherapist I have strong expertise in recruitment - primarily European and Tech. I am also a yoga teacher & consistent yogi (practicing daily and teaching as much/often as possible).
My day-to-day professional activities include - talent partnering in the tech industry where I connect with people from different cultures & backgrounds. The rest of my time I spend in therapy where I guide and accompany people in their inner journeys of self-awareness and mastery. From time to time I like to help people explore the mind-body connection by teaching yoga (in-group or private sessions or on YouTube).
In all these "roles" I make good use of my own curiosity and flexibility in order to keep myself grounded and achieve their true meaning.
My story about well-being and self-awareness had its roots in the "I am not good enough" inner critic voice. Currently still working on overcoming that pressure and exploring the balance - A day to day journey in itself.
Let's connect if my story speaks to you or any of your current needs. Together we will create more space for choice and awareness - one day at a time.

MY APPROACH

A few words about how I see things

Overall approach

Ultimately, your life is your responsibility and in order to transform it and connect with your true self - it's good to just reach out and explore (there are so many options out there).

We all have doubts and dreams. It is human. It is fine. Just breathe: deep inhale, long & slow exhale.

You already have what it takes inside you and just need to connect the dots. In your relational, professional, and everyday life, just find what works for you. 

Therapy approach

My belief is that we all need space and grace to grow continuously, connect to our authentic selves and as Yalom said "need to let go of the hope of a better past” and be able to carve out the present mindfully and intentionally. That happens through awareness and working towards healing and working through our habitual patterns. We have the ability to master the now, appreciate the upcoming, and live in accordance with our true selves.

By supporting your awareness journey, I help you tap into your resources and find, release old patterns, tame "unwanted thoughts" while allowing for new ideas to come to life, rediscover life's joy, and craft your very own chosen and not default story.

COMMITMENT

for working together

My commitment

I can accompany you on a journey towards a mindful and meaningful approach to life - whatever that means for you. Exploring your journey, especially the painful, can be a challenging journey, but the most rewarding there is - Honour it by showing up. I'll be by your side while you "do the work”.

Your commitment

You will have to show up - to start with. From there - it all depends - cause each story and mind unfold differently. You'll have to stay committed to the process, trust it and stay true to yourself and the "space between ourselves” (our safe and confidential therapeutical space). You are steering the well every step of the way - I am just there to support you. The journey's yours but you don't have to do it alone. Remember and keep it in mind for our context together:
