Crina has totally supported me and challenged me in areas that I have struggled with my whole life. I felt comfortable enough after only three sessions to ask for help with negative beliefs I hold about myself. I never felt placated or pacified but rather empowered and supported to move past my perceived obstacles. She has been instrumental in helping me boost my confidence in a way that feels will last.
I appreciate her balanced nature of support and yet excellent level of challenge which came naturally. I feel that she truly cares about the progress towards my goals and right from the get go, I felt great respect for what she had to offer. I got a sense of strength, grounding and experience. Knowing that she had come from a corporate background as well was a big plus for me - it seemed to add weight to the experience.
I have seen significant changes in areas of my life that I have been working on for years. Crina facilitated the space to make that work happen and I am very grateful to her for this.

Despite the impact of the coronavirus crisis two weeks into my coaching sessions, I have been able to move on with my goals in ways I wasn’t sure I would be able to, as a freelancer having lost all my work and income.
The sessions helped me feel more confident, focussed and set sensible timelines in a format that suited me/my mindset. I remember the day feeling that I had ‘turned the corner’ and a load had been lightened; I was actually starting to move forward and do something that I loved – a goal I had had for over a year but had constantly put obstacles in my way to do it. I stopped focussing on the one thing I had been obsessing was the issue and realised by starting to move forwards in other areas, other options would open up to me ... and they did.
Crina was astute, sensitive, understanding, positive and had a way of gently nudging me in the right direction and bringing me back on track if I wandered ‘off piste’ too much. By telling me what she was hearing when I spoke, made me think more about was I was saying and feeling and as such I then had the answers (or at the very least suggestions and ideas on how to move forward/what I could do). By asking me to imagine myself in a situation in the future, how I felt, what my life looked like was a great help as I am a very visual person. I was very comfortable talking with her about everything, even more spiritual and holistic subjects which not everyone appreciates.
… I was looking for tools/toolkit to help me find my way and achieve what I am capable of on a personal and professional level. Crina completely understood that and I definitely feel I now have those tools. She has helped me understand that (for me) I need to ‘own’ a problem, issue or goal, not let it own me, so that I can move forward. I now look at ALL different options to move forward rather than focussing on one thing that I think should be done before anything will fall into place or be possible.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Crina Ancuta to friends and colleagues and cannot thank her enough for her help and guidance.

Coaching sessions with Crina had a very profound effect on me. I felt the power of opportunities, multitude of possibilities and enormous confidence that I can make the impossible happen now.
These sessions, happened at a very important time in my career and in a very unplanned and unexpected manner. And, it was indeed a blessing in disguise! I was geared up and prepared to face the next chapter that was about to unfold in my life. By then, Crina had really opened up the canvas of opportunities in front of me by asking a few simple but critical questions. She provided key guidance, subtle steering and tools to prioritise the right choices. And more importantly facilitated me to chart out a plan that can help me achieve these options that seemed very daunting earlier.
I was starting to see and discover my own world in a different perspective. I was interacting and speaking to a very influential network of known and unknown people and getting inspired and intrigued by the power of ideas and execution! And all this because I was being mentored by someone who had a much wider perspective and experience.
I have known Crina as a leader who sets brilliant examples of tackling unexpected challenges & managing high performing teams. It was indeed a privilege to be coached and mentored by her, to see things from her perspective and get tips on how we could spot opportunities in the most “seemingly” hopeless situation. I could feel this right from the first session and her committed follow through on my experience post each session helped me grow immensely.

Working with Crina has been very rewarding and insightful. Our sessions provided me with a clarity which helped me to really anker into my truth. Crina’s guidance helped me to navigate a few tough choices in my personal and professional life. I noticed that I’ve become more calm and focused with a great sense of presence. If you’re ready to take the next step in your life and you’re looking for a coach who knows her stuff, you’ll be in great hands with Crina.
