“The meaning for Transmute Wellbeing Limited is inspired from the concept of alchemic transformation of human behaviour, the powerful process of transformation from within. All we need is within us, we just need to process and transmute naturally what we already have, in order to discover our true potential. Feeling stuck, unhappy or tired with life is because our true self is ready to reveal, to transmute and manifest itself.“

Adriana’s story and her value-based investment in Transmute Wellbeing Limited
I grew up in the mountains of Transylvania and as soon as communism ended, I realised as a teenager at that time, that almost all what I knew to be true, it is not…
I moved to the UK in 2005, wanting to start all over again, at the age of 30 and as single mother of a 3 years old son, after experiencing domestic abuse, various traumas and having had developed a belief system and coping strategies embedded in my culture at the time.
By then I was already a nurse for 11 years and I just achieved a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work.
Adjusting to a new culture, language and social system and meanwhile being a single parent, it was never easy! I realised that “someone” pressed the “delete button’’ and my identity (as I knew it) was gone!
And so, it was! I needed to manage my fears, losses and to see my future with an innocent eye!
The social isolation and inability to express myself in a new culture , was a great pain and a great lesson of humility.
I started the journey “in search of self” and I dedicated myself to learning new things and adapt to the new culture.
I had the great opportunity to meet amazing people who challenged me and encouraged me to develop , learn and accept myself for who I am.
The training and mentoring I had is invaluable .
But the switch came from within, whilst I was doing the simple things, like gardening, long walks outdoor or going by the sea .
In this moments of calm,naturalness and mindfulness I understood that the only control and security I will ever have will always be within myself.
And then I looked within again, and I acknowledged what was always natural and effortless for me to do, was holding the space, listening and supporting people to have a better quality of life.
Therefore, I also continue applying my social work skills and knowledge in supporting others to be a confident and love what they are doing and, in many cases, enable individuals and families to have a better quality of life.
Was I able to achieve all this without self-awareness, without the support offered to me, without accepting and processing my traumas and development needs and transmuting all of this into personal strengths?
My message to you is that you have the ability to have the life you want, that you are accountable but that you are not alone and accessing and accepting support can make this process easier and faster.
