About: My therapeutic approach enables you to seek answers that are emotionally meaningful to you. Therapy is your space, your confidential and safe place of self-growth.
How can I help: Our first meeting is about your opportunity to engage in an understanding of your difficulties. You will learn about my practice and what it can offer. Our therapeutic encounter is key to our work together, a collaboration.
Why reaching out: A therapeutic process is about psychological changes and best guidance to navigate such changes. Our communication is your guide, a journey and a search for answers. The need to relate and understand best ways in doing so are of essence to being human.
I have learned to identify some of my past issues or feelings from childhood to adulthood and my fears. Exploring what may have been the causes - separating cause perception with real cause, how to rethink negative interpretations (thoughts) and come up with alternatives and behaviours (strategies) to eliminate/reduce negativity/fear/situation. Keeping activities diaries and thought diaries, helping me to record and reflect what I have done, when and moods/thoughts/feelings. Talking about and making sense of all of it because it helps break it all down to actual problem (peeling back the extra layers to the core of the problem).
"This service has been of great support to me on two occasions and I highly recommended. Madalina's therapeutic approach has been a great comfort to me ”
CFM: "Opportunity to explore current life situation, for myself as well as a couple;process of transformations related to age, health and working status - both as an individual and as a partner; learning better coping strategies and understanding of self and others as a couple, possible anticipation of conflict and framework to resolve/celebrate our differences;"
CMM: "Better understanding of myself in relation to partner and future retirement; learning to re/make realistic expectations about potential future events and have a sensible plan that can be agreed in consultation with my partner;"

‘I found this experience to be invaluable to moving forward in my bereavement: having someone to really listen & work out solutions together. Feeling in a safe environment, encouraged to talk and be present. I will miss our sessions, thank you for a great service 😄’
what is helpful: an ability to communicate with an open mind and rethink, it is easier to see where I felt challenged, all along
‘Madalina was brilliant. She was able to understand me so well and has equipped me with some excellent coping skills. This is an amazing service!’
‘Very helpful and accommodating!’
‘Process described/felt as "very caring"’
‘A very helpful experience to talk to someone not involved, helping me to let go of certain emotions and possibly see more clearly!’
‘Without the help and support received today I would not be where I am today. Thank you a thousand times!’
‘It allowed me to express feelings and emotions that I could not normally do and (in doing so) in a safe environment, it helped me see my problems in a different light!’
‘Madalina created a "safe" environment for me to talk openly and easily about my feelings. The sessions really helped me to problem solve and I have learned some new personal techniques/strategies to combat feelings of anxiety. Thank you!’
‘Changed my life. Thank you! 😃’
‘Madalina was very emphatic and supportive. She provided some good strategies to assist me in coping with my anxiety. Although it is a process, I feel better equipped now.’
"Madalina agreed to follow up on our work together with a review; she has extended her support in an unprecedentedly trying time and has been there for me"
‘Madalina was able to assist in assessing my difficulties and although I tried to stop the appointments, thinking it is a waste of her time, because I have to explain all what happened and how I am feeling, and it bring all the tears again. I think Madalina was worried about me, or about how I am coping psychologically.
I thank her for her time in listening to me and comforting me, until I may or may not need her again; but maybe she herself has learned from what I shared with her whilst grieving.’
"At the start of my counselling, I thought that my psychotherapy sessions would be the same as previous programs. I would explore my own solutions and apply coping mechanisms. These never really worked for me or they solved a little bit ,but without overall improvement.
Whether it be because of the style of talking instead of task orientated work or Madalina's interaction, this latest series of sessions has been far more beneficial. It has not been about coping mechanisms but identifying themes, analysing their impact on me and creating a meaningful change in the way that I perceive how my life and experiences shaped me."
