Hey, my name is Elmira Strange, and I am Research Psychologist (MPhil), Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (Dip), and Certified Life Coach (Dip). I love combining my passion for Psychology with Coaching.
The unusual bit: I was born in Northern Kazakhstan (where it's freezing cold in winter -40C), then moved to Russia, then to the United Kingdom.
The interesting bit: I had a life-saving surgery and near-death experience in 2012. The near-death experience made me realise that we are here to share our knowledge, help each other, and enjoy this life.
My interests: Psychology, Online Entrepreneurship, Spirituality, and Paranormal phenomena (no wonder after my near-death experience!)
My previous experience: Whilst I was working at University (Wales, UK) as a Senior Researcher and Psychology Lecturer, my focus was on 'Researching Stress in Families of Disabled Children' where I had to learn what makes people stressed and unhappy. From that point on I knew that I want to work with people in therapeutic settings, helping them to find their path towards happiness. Then I went to study Life Coaching and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Since 2006 I am working as an 'online entrepreneur' as well: writing blogs and books, whilst finding my own most enjoyable 'niche'. In my online courses I combine my extensive knowledge of the 'building online business and marketing' and my passion for 'Psychology and Coaching'.
