About

Chartered psychologist, HCPC-registered in clinical, counselling, health and occupational psychology. Providing services for individuals, couples and organisations beginning from eclectic CBT interventions (ACT, DBT, ST) - the most effective and intuitive psychological framework. I address all psychopathologies. My goal is to provide you with a strong mental platform and the skills to help you keep your life in reach. Progress means change, rehearsing new ways of thinking or a range of strategies to iterate development safely. The result, a genuine approach for you to always find a better way forward.
My academic background allows me to wear the scientist practitioner's hat across contexts. I provide psychotherapy, counselling, coaching as well as organisational consultancy. An evidence-based approach will emphasize the best course of action, making sure you are able to acquire relevant skills you can easily transfer in your daily life.
Meet me at the crossroads between possibility and opportunity. Learn to create a less challenging present for a more fulfilling future. Let's start from what feels real and build on everything you can imagine. Get in touch, and enjoy a range of products and services for mental strength, better health and life fulfilment.

Cristian A Nica's Groups

Purposeful anxiety

Why do actions arise from motivation but are still welcomed with frustration? The self-preservation instinct becomes an inner purpose for the unconscious and only a grounded self can face the challenge. It is well known that accomplishment should be an opportunity for self-fulfillment. Yet you rarely expect positive things to come. The future only seems uncertain, because of all the distracting thoughts you are trying to keep in order. It's difficult to focus, prioritise and commit to something meaningful while struggling to achieve control over your life. This is not the scenario you wish to follow.

More about this group

Meaningful meditation sessions

How should we meditate? Some choose a reliable technique (backed by science), others the technique they are most familiar with. But familiarity doesn't always lead to greater meaning. In a meaningful meditation session, insights trigger mental events you can relate to. When ideas follow a logical approach, better coping options can be considered, and experience is translated into mental skills. Join me every Sunday for a meaningful meditation session. Zoom link will be provided upon request. Hours may change based on availability - please check for updates.
