Adriana and Talking Therapy Wellbeing


Having over 20 years’ experience in the field of health and social care internationally and in UK, after she qualified as a therapist, Adriana decided to develop an independent service that can complement the gaps that exist at the moment in the referral system and therapy choices for the public.

Adriana brings to the therapy room a diversity of knowledge, experience, skills, and professional values and nevertheless acceptance, calm and empathy.

She works with clients of all ages and walks of life, as long as she knows that she has the knowledge, skills and qualification to support them.

We practice integrative therapy and the number of sessions offered are as needed.

 

A bit of storytelling …


Adriana grew up in the mountains of Transylvania and as soon as communism ended, she realised as a teenager at that time, that almost all what she knew to be true, it is not…

After many years of facing challenges and learning to be free, she realised that the only control and security she will ever have will always be within herself.

She worked and traveled in various parts of the world and she was fascinated by people, various cultures and the natural world.

She loves gardening, long walks outdoor and she often goes by the sea to relax, no matter the weather.

Adriana moved to the UK in 2005, wanting to start all over again, at the age of 30 and as single mother of a 3 years old son.

Adjusting to a new culture, language and social system and meanwhile being a single parent, it was never easy! She realised that “someone” pressed the “delete button’’ and her identity was gone!

And so, it was! She needed to manage her fears, losses and to see her future with an innocent eye!

She learned that who we become at a certain moment in time is not defining us, but is rather a result of who we are, what we do and the context.

By then she was already an experienced nurse and had a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work.

Adriana started the journey “in search of self” and soon she realised that she always wanted to work more closely with people (looking retrospectively to her nursing career and the same it happened in her social work career).

And so she discovered her vocation is to be a therapist and she lived happily ever after…
