THE SIGNIFICANT YOU
The Significant You is a practice-informed platform for personal exploration, learning and development.
It aims to bring the focus back to the significant you and shift your understanding of human life from the theories from books to your living experience, intuition, wisdom & infinite resources to grow.
HOW IT STARTED
Nicoleta, the founder, has met in her private, social and professional life a large variety of people across cultures.
9 out of 10 told her they were struggling in at least one aspect of their existence. Only 1 out of 10 took action and spoke to a professional about what was going on in their life.
All these people had in common a genuine desire to be well in life, yet most of them avoided to seek the support of a practitioner. Some were comfortable to function on automatic pilot and created little time and space for personal insight. Others were too concerned with the stigma associated with mental illness.
As a passionate wellbeing advocate, Nicoleta searched for avenues to empower people become aware of their inner lives, talk about their experiences, overcome their struggles and create lives they really loved living.
Over the years, Nicoleta learned that most of our struggles are rooted in our programming, in how we learn to function.
We learn to “be” and “become” observing and imitating the world around us which naturally becomes our “default” functioning.
Family is protecting us from seeing the reality of our world and school is teaching us many sciences, yet none will introduce us to wellbeing, self-care and self-compassion.
Shaped by our modern society, we live under the pressure to perform and achieve and we are defined by “having” and “doing”, finding very little time for “being”.
We are taught to master our emotions, to restrain, to follow more rules and to work harder. Our fast, artificial and challenging world does not encourage self-awareness and sometimes we struggle to find genuine purpose and meaning in life and to appreciate what we have.
HOW IT DEVELOPED
Nicoleta created this practice-informed platform for personal exploration & development TO BRING THE FOCUS BACK TO THE SIGNIFICANT YOU.

⇨ To empower you step out your default functioning and edit your being to create that life you love living.
