Hi! My name is Alina

Alina Porumboiu-06.png

I am happy you decided to join my world in continuous motion.

For as long as I can remember, I designed my life through the following 3 core values: authenticity, autonomy and constant evolution.

I strongly believe that a meaningful connection is built on a constant exchange, in which both parties grow and evolve together.


For this to happen, I think it’s essential that my clients know me beyond my expertise, accreditations and classes I took along the years to develop as a professional.


More than 10.000 hours of therapy sessions, that I`ve conducted throughout the last 15 years, were opportunities for me to dare, doubt, validate methods, adjust, and practice presence.

 Nevertheless, here are a few things that I think you should also know about me:

  • For almost a decade, I have been hopelessly in love with Holland. In 2022, I gathered my courage and decided to move to Utrecht. I packed my whole life – and no doubt, it has been a road full of adventures – and came to this city, ready to start a new chapter. Whether you are doing this all by yourself or with your family by your side, the change is just as big and will come with a whole range of challenging feelings: fear, excitement, loneliness, anger, the feeling of being overwhelmed or even confused. Rest assured, I have experienced them all. And by genuinely relating to all this process I can better use it as a thriving context for other expats, too.

  • I am a mother – I have a young boy who’s changed my life for the good and keeps on doing so EVERY SINGLE DAY. In my 15 years of practice as a therapist in my home country, I have specialized in working specifically with children, teens, and parents. My professional and my personal experiences created a unique approach that integrates the child/teen`s therapy process in their wider systems (family/school) for healthier and sustainable connections

  • For as long as I can remember, I have been in love with dancing and conscious body movement. I have attended numerous classes that enhanced both my personal life and my professional practice. I have never been the type of person who can stand still for too long. Whether it’s dancing, conscious body practices or, on a deeper level, making big moves. I like to listen with all my body to the story behind the words and with kind sharpness to invite people to a deeper delving.

Here is what you should also know about my professional upbringing:

  • I graduated the Faculty of Psychology and educational Sciences in 2008 and earned a Master’s Degree in Experiential Psychotherapy in 2010. Experiential Psychotherapy is a holistic method, based on humanistic approaches, that brings together various art-therapy and logo-therapy techniques with an integrative direction.

  • I use cognitive behavioral therapy techniques and integrates them into a more comprehensive approach, by adding elements of integrative therapy and trauma psychotherapy.

  • I am also an accredited transpersonal therapist, specialized in Holotropic Breathwork methods.

  • I am an EMCC accredited coach, specialized in Moving Questions methods.

  • I am a certificated Educational Trainer (International House) in teaching young and very young learners.

  • I am a personal development programs trainer.

  • I have more than 15 years of practice in methods of movement and body awareness: 5 Rhythms, somatic approaches (Feldenkrais) and psychosomatic, contemporary dance, contact improvisation, nutritious movement, dance therapy and transpersonal therapies.

This is how Movimental was born – by merging my personal experience with my professional background into an original concept, meant to develop and nurture autonomy, empowerment, and increased wellbeing within my clients.

Let's move to the next step
