"Kracht, power, dat zijn de eerste woorden die in me opkomen.
Na vele jaren therapie bij goede psychoanalytici kwam ik bij Cristiana terecht.
Mijn vraag was duidelijk, ik wilde handvatten hoe ik me in dit leven goed staande kan houden. Geen geanalyseer, maar met de voeten op de grond.
Ik kreeg veel meer dan dat.
Met humor en veel plezier hebben we hard gewerkt, en dat bracht me tot I can do it myself. 💪"
“Carta Coaching is a gift to the city. The pathway I have been guided through has created a deep sense of self-awareness and understanding.
Cristiana is a unique practitioner gifted in her ability to communicate expert knowledge with an empathetic, real and open manner. Carta Coaching has taught me the tools and insight to find space and empowerment in my life.”
"Cristiana Carta is a very dedicated and passionate psychologist, always very attentive to the patient's needs.
Extremely professional and kind, she really helped me throughout a very difficult moment of my life, I’m simply grateful that I’ve found her!"
"Cristiana is een doortastende, intelligente en creatieve psycholoog. Ze heeft me een hele persoonlijke benadering gegeven en gebruikte elementen uit verschillende behandelingstechnieken.
Hierdoor ontstond er al snel een persoonlijke vertrouwelijke band, met elke sessie een fijne balans tussen gevoel en praktische tips voor toepassing in de praktijk. "
"Cristiana is an incredible therapist, really well prepared and clear in her advice, explanation and support. However, one thing sets her out of the crowd of therapists I saw in the past: a deep passion for her work and a human approach second to no-one. She doesn't see her patients as insurance numbers like everyone else in The Netherlands (and I have seen plenty before finding her).
She will go all lengths to assist her patients with an empathy and humanity that really makes a difference. She helped me in the darkest moment of my life and I owe it to her for being able now to fully enjoy my life again."
"I had a great experience working with Cristiana! She always created a safe space for me to open up, she picked up on issues I wasn’t aware about myself and she has great resources like recommendable books and tools to use for assignments or behavioral experiments. Best of all, she unlocked my vocabulary of words to express myself and taught me to feel ok with using it. Thanks for everything!”
"Cristiana is a professional, respectful therapist and a great sparring partner. She has helped me with getting in touch with my core needs, gaining clarity on my ways of thinking and behaving, and developing healthy, adult ways to approach issues while staying true to myself. I would definitely recommend Cristiana's practice to whoever wants to win over self-defeating patterns.”
"Cristiana over the years taught me how Schema therapy works and how to use it properly. She provided powerful tools for being more present, focused and to properly take care of myself.
She has a lot of passion, empathy and she always walked extra miles to facilitate my growth.
I am really thankful to her and to the way she helped me to become a better version of the person I am.
I will always refer and recommend her for further therapy cycles, coaching, retreats, advice and consultancies."
"My experience with Cristiana and Carta Coaching can be described as transformational. With a very practical and caring approach, I found it to be the perfect balance between gaining more knowledge and developing better practices.
In one year, I was able to develop so much more self-compassion and healthy adult practices than I have from years of CBT with other therapists in the past. I would highly recommend schematherapy with Cristiana to anyone who is ready for a transformation in their life. "
"A serious and empathetic professional, Cristiana is a skilled therapist whom you can easily communicate with. She helped me regain self-esteem, trust in myself, and the motivation to pursue my goals during one of the toughest moments in my life.
With a respectful and human approach, she guided me through a personalized therapeutic path based on Schema Focused Therapy, providing me with the right tools to look into my feelings, accept and heal my wounded parts and become again the best version of myself.''
"The many months working with Cristiana have been life-changing. Every session provided insight, challenges, development, and healing.
To think where I was two years ago, to how I am now is incredible. I feel much happier, more empowered, understand myself far better, and have the behavioural tools necessary to keep myself healthy in future.
Grazie mille Cristiana, I cannot thank you enough. "
"Cristiana is both incredibly empathetic and insightful. It was my first time consulting a therapist and I came with somewhat vague and unclear concerns.
Cristiana was very adept at exploring these with me and able to sharply discern issues and patterns to provide lessons and tools for me to deal with recurring patterns of behaviour that I hadn’t been very aware of myself.
The sessions I had with Cristiana left me better equipped to deal with what life may bring me. She was always receptive to me asking her to explain a topic or concept further.
Beyond her professional skills, she is extremely kind, sincere, and a pleasure to talk with."
“As I transitioned to the Netherlands, new career, and to becoming a parent, Cristiana has helped me tremendously in developing a greater understanding of myself, working through some core beliefs and assumptions that impact how I treat myself, and ultimately developing ways to better show up for myself.
I am tremendously grateful.”
"From the first session with Cristiana, I knew she was the right therapist for me. I never had a therapist before, I had heard of them but my knowledge was limited.
Cristiana personal style assisted me in overcoming my darkest time, our sessions were professional and personal at the same time, and that really worked for me. I'm now back on my feet ready for what's next in my life.
Best investment ever made, I cannot recommend Cristiana enough. THANKS"
"I can just say that I am so so greatful that I met Cristiana. The two years we spent working together have been the best investment I could have ever made for myself, and I don't know how I would have done without it.
It was a lot of work, but she accompanied me in every step: she taught me to be compassionate with myself, but she was always honest and pushed me when I needed. I loved the fact that I learnt something new in every session. I received a lot of tools to understand myself and the ways I am wired, and tools to avoid the dysfunctional coping mechanisms that were keeping me from being aware and from being happy.
I still make mistakes, I still fall in some traps. But today I can say that I am very much aware, and today I know how to go through all the rollercoasters and even enjoy the ride.
Thank you so much, Cristiana!"
Heb de coaching sessies bij Cristiana als heel prettig en ongedwongen ervaren.
Voelde me zeer op mijn gemak bij Cristiana wat het mogelijk maakte om mij open te stellen.
Cristiana heeft mij geholpen om weer meer in contact te komen met mijn gevoel en terug te gaan naar wat prettig is voor mezelf.
Dit heeft uiteindelijk geleid in een beslissing voor mijn toekomst waar ik mijzelf prettig bij voelde
A friend recommended me Cristiana.
From the first meeting I found the right therapist.
When i started i was facing a period of anxiety, low esteem and some issue from the past.
She chose the right therapy for me. In addition with her professionalism,
it worked perfectly.
A therapy that works in my daily life and not only during the session.
I feel stronger and i do believe in myself more. I can take decisions with a clear mindset. I achieved a lot with her.
However I've felt that I needed to improve even more aspects as a last step in therapy, so I've decided to finalize the path with a different approach that she proposed me.
She has different effective approaches based on different needs of the patients.
Thank you Cristiana. It was so worth it to follow this journey!
Worldwide corporate about coaching:
Notwithstanding the challenging situation, it was a very positive experience for our Company.
Also from the employee’s side it was an eye opener and a good opportunity for introspection exercises.
Once again thank you for all your great support and work in the background to help the employee succeed after all.
My time with Cristiana has been invaluable.
I've learnt so much about myself and how I relate to others. It wasn't easy, but Cristiana's approach - characterised by empathy, adaptability, clear boundaries and a sense of humour, helped me make changes that I will continue to work on. The sessions that focussed on communication were life-changing.
Thank you Cristiana.
I was referred to Cristiana through a dear friend of mine. It has always been challenging for me to connect with therapists or psychologists, as finding someone with both sharp intellect and genuine kindness is not easy. However, meeting Cristiana provided me with the comfort and care that I desperately needed. I felt a strong sense of trust in her, intellectually as well.
Despite a short path, I found sessions incredibly helpful and enlightening. They provided me with a clearer understanding of the possibilities for continuing my therapy, and I now feel the urgency and courage to embark on this journey for the first time.
