Cristina Bâra

I’m an optimist, a transformational coach and a true believer in the human potential, in the hidden treasure within people waiting to be uncovered. ​ After working for several years in a corporate environment, I was moved by how many people hated their jobs, were unhappy with their lives, feeling like they don’t know what their life’s purpose is. Mesmerized by the corporate ladder and the promises of the organizations, they ended up with positions they thought they wanted, possessions they though they needed, just to discover that instead of feeling happy and accomplished, they felt more lost and disconnected to themselves.

I knew that I had to do something, to open doors of possibilities for people, to unlock potential, to bring happiness. But first, I started a journey within myself: books, alternative therapies, various workshops, meditation, a spiritual journey to India - all contributed to my self-discovery process. Part of this beautiful journey I chose to walk on, Mind Learners Coaching School fitted perfectly and was one of the best investments I could have made for myself. I discovered a whole new world: a world where we are all learning from each other, we face our fears, we deal with imposters, limiting beliefs, “not enough-ness”, self-judgment and all the things that stop us from embracing our true selves and living a life of joy and peace. ​ As a coach, I accompany people on their own personal journey, walking by their side, with no judgment but full support, questioning, challenging and creating space for self-inquiry. In the same time, I am still on my path, a continuous learning process. ​ Currently, I am learning the Compassionate Inquiry approach developed by Gabor Mate and Sat Dharam Kaur, helping clients to connect to the truth within themselves in the present moment, become free from self-generated suffering, and gain insight, clarity and choice in their behaviour. ​ Sometimes I write on my blog, paint, write poems, hold guided meditation sessions.
