About me

Welcome to My Profile Page!

As a psychologist and psychotherapist, I understand that life can be challenging at times, and seeking support is a courageous first step toward positive change. Here, you'll find a warm and inviting space where you can take control of your life and build resilience. Together, we will work on developing coping mechanisms, gaining insights, and making positive choices for lasting change.

With years of experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds, I have honed my skills in various therapeutic approaches, including psychodynamic therapy, humanistic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and mindfulness-based therapy. I believe in tailoring therapy to each individual's unique circumstances, experiences, and environment to empower you to become your own therapist.

Here, you can learn more about my approach to therapy, the services I offer, and how I can support you on your journey toward healing and growth. Whether you are struggling with relationship issues, trauma, anxiety, depression, or other mental health concerns, I am here to provide a compassionate and supportive space to help you achieve your goals.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation. I look forward to supporting you on your path to well-being.

Training, qualifications & experience

 Hello!
I am a Counseling Psychologist and Positive Psychotherapist dedicated to supporting your holistic well-being.

I use an integrative approach that combines Psychodynamic, Humanistic, and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) perspectives. Additionally, I am passionate about Mindfulness Meditation and Art Therapy, and I seamlessly incorporate these practices into our transformative work together.

With experience in the NHS, voluntary organizations, and private practice, I bring a wealth of skills to help you navigate a wide range of challenges, including relationship issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, and abuse.

My philosophy is centered on empowering you to discover and harness your inner resources—body, spirit, mind, and emotions—to foster a deep sense of inner balance. You are the expert on your own life, and my interdisciplinary approach is designed to equip you with the tools to become your own therapist within your unique circumstances and environment.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

HCPC
Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

UKCP
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

UK Council for Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Further information

I understand that starting therapy can be a big step, and feeling nervous is okay. My main goal is to make our space safe and welcoming for you.

In our first session, we'll talk about how therapy works and cover important things like privacy and safety. If you've been to therapy before, we can talk about that too. Feel free to ask any questions to help you feel comfortable.

Our first meeting is mostly about getting to know each other and understanding why you're here. I'll ask some questions to understand how I can best support you.

If you have questions about your first session, just send me an email at raluca@positum.co.uk. I'm here to support you on your journey to feeling better.

Looking forward to it!
