Camelia Ana Hanos

Secretary ETPA

Camelia began her academic journey by following in her mother’s footsteps at Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, where she graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics, laying a solid foundation for analytical thinking. Inspired by her own life experiences and a desire to delve into the depths of human behavior and emotions, she continued her studies at the Faculty of Psychology within the same university. At the West University of Timișoara, she deepened her knowledge by obtaining a double master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy, with specializations in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Systemic Family Therapy. This education was complemented by her accreditation as a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist in training by the Romanian Board of Psychologists.

Her desire to expand her therapeutic skills led her to Berlin, the cradle of Family Constellations, where she received her specialized training. This experience deepened her understanding of family dynamics and the ways they influence the individual, opening new paths in her therapeutic approach.

Professionally, Camelia has integrated her mathematical expertise, psychological skills, and therapeutic specializations into a unique practice based on Transpersonal Psychotherapy. In her work, Camelia delicately molds consciousness, encouraging her clients to masterfully carve their own destinies on paths where authenticity is revealed in all its splendor. Everything unfolds in a subtle orchestration of introspection, where each chord is a step towards embracing one’s essence with nobility and discernment.

A personal challenge in 2013, related to a mysterious and debilitating illness, marked a turning point in her life, beginning a deep journey of self-discovery and redefining her therapeutic approach. This period also ignited her interest in the therapeutic use of psychedelics, opening new paths of exploration. She is inspired by the burgeoning research in the field, which has enriched her practice and provided her with innovative tools to facilitate profound healing and self-awareness among her clients.
