Build resilience, bring clarity to your life,
through the empowering process of
There are times when we all can feel as if we've hit a brick wall in parts of our life. We look for ways to deal with anxiety, low self confidence, low self esteem - moments when we procrastinate and can't find a way out, when we are creatively blocked or when we feel as if we have lost control over our lives - and maybe struggle with the consequences - addictions, confusion or loneliness.
Hi, I am Corina
here to guide you to build your resilience, to curate and integrate your feelings, memories and passions, and help you to reach a more balanced life! You will have my support as a qualified solution focused psychotherapist, confidence coach, intuitive, expressive artist and creative maker with many years experience of working out for myself how to keep my life moving forward in a challenging part of the world and in England (see "My story").
Life as an artist for me started as a self-healing journey in a small flat in Bucharest, Romania. It has become a beautiful friendship, a friendship with my brushes, my paints, my canvasses, my paper and the oh so many bits and pieces that have found their way into my paintings. In their presence I have experienced the power of art as a healing channel, where art has enabled me to better interpret and understand my own feelings and emotions, where it enabled me to express the way I felt and bring clarity to my issues at moments when I simply couldn't find any words.
WHAT I DO
Welcome to CREATIVE ALCHEMY, a method of working together - that starts with a problem or an opportunity - opens the channels to being able to solve problems through the presence of creative activity and non-judgmental enquiries - and finishes with a clear way forward.
It is a process that disrupts the logical, linear, monkey mind that keeps us oscillating between our past and our future, a process that enables us to bring our awareness into the present, where we can rest, heal, reconnect with ourselves, and find the solutions we need in order to move on, involving, as needs be, emotional painting, writing, mind mapping, collage making, self exploration - and non-judgmental enquiries
