I’m a Psychologist, Psychotherapist in supervision in Transactional Analysis, Trainer, Creativity Facilitator. In present I work as a psychotherapist and I run workshops, personal development groups in Transactional Analysis in Brasov, Romania.
I have experience in psychotherapy area, the personal development area and training area.
I am a relational psychotherapist and I believe that in an emotionally attuned relationship where we feel safe we can grow and mature from the psycho-emotional point of view. I am a warm and empathetic person.

Self-Awareness Workshops through Transactional Analysis – Self Confidence
What did you like at this seminar?
- I enjoyed very much participating yesterday in this workshop about Self Confidence. I found out, in fact I realised a lot of things which I am sure I will use for my personal change and for people around me. A good word, an appreciation, said from your hart, honestly, can make wonders. Many times we are too tired, indifferent or coreless to say it aloud and it seems it’s time to change. I am an introvert person and the most of times I have difficulties to express myself in public. Yesterday I also liked very much the participants, the way they interacted with each-others, what they said and the way in which they said it. I felt very well with and inside this group. I thank you for the yesterday course and I wish from the bottom my hart to participate the next workshops. I’d like very much to achieve an inside balance, so that I could always smile from the bottom of my soul, with a bright smile which would help people around. (Corina Lelutiu, engineer)
