I have always loved people, getting to know them, understanding them and accompanying them on their growth journeys. I could say that this is how I chose my profession and career, but I think they actually chose me and I chose to listen to my inner calling to suport people to reach their higher potential. And each person I have ever worked with has accompanied me, on my on journey.
I am a coach, a trainer, a facilitator of transformative experiences, both individual and at team and organizational level. My mission is to create safe spaces where people can get to know themselves better, to find their huge inner strength, to access the resources they need and to take the necessary steps to turn their objectives and intentions into reality, in a natural and stress free way. I deeply believe that with each person that becomes happier, more calm, more self aware, more aligned with their values and in contact with their own mission, we are one step closer to a better world. Also, I believe that with each organization that supports the growth process of its employees and whose leadership team makes a real priority of a healthy organizational culture, we are closer to a more conscious, high functioning society, based on values and collaboration.
I have studied sociology and I got an entry level job in a multinational company while I was still a student. I worked in the corporate world for 17 years, during which I held several roles, all about working with people. For 13 years I held different leadership positions, I worked with internal and external customers, I recruited, trained and contribuited to the development of hundreds of people who were part of my teams. I handled projects and processes, I closed activities in some cities and reopened them in others, with minimum impact on business KPIs. During these years, I have grown and learned more than it is possible in any school. While working for the corporation, I met the first trainers who, besides talking to me about important things such as performance, KPIs, return on investment, stakeholders, customer care, also spoke to me about other things, just as important: coaching, strengths, development, emotions, getting to know myself and the people on my teams. I will always be grateful for these things, because they made me take the first steps towards my mission and what I do today.
Learning new things has always been very important to me. I am a licenced NLP Master and trainer and, because I have always been fascinated with coaching, I took the opportunity to study it more when the right school for me appeared; so I joined the very first group of students of the Mind Learners Coaching Scool and, two years later, I became a facilitator of the school program, which is a project very dear to my heart. I am certified by the International Coach Federation as Associate Certified Coach and also as an Evolutionary Coaching and Culture Transformation Tools Consultant, by the Barrett Values Centre. At present, I study integrative psychotherapy.

If I were to use one word to define Carmen, the word would definitely be Wisdom. She is one of the wisest, most compassionate people I have ever known. As a coach, she is an exceptional listener, uses her experience and intuition to ask profound and insightful questions and create coaching contexts that generate revelations. She has a gift of challenging her clients with kindness, accompanying them into that space of not-knowing where all great insights emerge. And, she manages to do that while also holding a safe space of unconditional care and support.

I have been working with Carmen for almost two years now and she gently guided me to realize what a really need. She seems to have some innate mixture of qualities that helped me feel safe, challenged and listened to. Working on some deep emotions and limiting beliefs, she helped me realize that what I needed was to change my internal operating system. But where to start and moreover, what new operating system to install? I somehow realized that I have to start with this very moment, but how? By training my mind to let go and be in this very present moment. Carmen helped me to gain every insight that put me on this path and now it feels like a new whole world is in front of me. I am sure she will continue to guide me as long as I need in this new world, until I will finally be able to inhabit it on my own and have the life that is waiting for me.

Draga Carmen, Îți mulțumesc că ai fost alături de mine pe drumul anevoios de descoperire a adevăratului sine. Când am apelat la ajutorul tău, nu știam ce mă va aștepta. Am pornit cu un obiectiv, dar am obținut atât de multe alte lucruri, încât astăzi sunt un om schimat în bine. Și a fost foarte frumos. Greu, uneori nu mai vedeam luminița de la capătul tunelului, dar atât de frumos! Cu ajutorul tău, am avut atâtea revelații, pe care singură nu le-aș fi putut avea. Îți multumesc că ai fost exact ce aveam nevoie, în fiecare moment: caldă, plină de compasiune, empatică, sinceră și obiectivă. Și mă iubesc mai mult, sunt mai blândă cu mine, pentru că tu mi-ai arătat că se poate. A fost o bucurie și o plăcere să fii călăuza mea pe acest drum.

Cred că îmi imaginam că voi primi informații, în formatul unei sticluțe de parfum în esență tare, informații de la tine, de la omul care a studiat cum să deblocheze sau să ungă mecanismele de funcționare. Ei bine, nu a fost asa, informațiile mi le-am oferit singură, cu răbdarea și atenția ta 😊. Ca cineva să înțeleagă experiența coachingului, trebuie să treacă prin ea, cu mintea deschisă și cu un multă sinceritate. M-ai invatat ca raspunsurile sunt la mine, daca sunt atenta, constienta de actiunile mele si daca imi proiectez realistic pasii si solutiile. M-ai învățat să am răbdare cu mine, să nu îmi fie frică de lucrurile pe care nu le cunosc, să nu mai compar mere cu pere, să îmi recunosc valoarea ca om și să îmi trag seva din ea. Sinceritate, conștientizare, recunoașterea și sărbătorirea propriei personae, le aplic și o fac inconstient, Carmen, este o senzație minunată!
