HELLO, from me ILIYANA

 

Each and every beginning needs an introduction and this space here would be dedicated to one.

Guided by the interest in science that takes place within us, in the form of processes and patterns that regulate our body, mind and emotions in every moment of our lives I have started my path within the field of the natural sciences where I have also developed an interest into health care and eventually graduated in nutrition, psychology and stepped into psychotherapy. My realization was that my interests are not just in the processes but the human being itself. The overlapping areas between psychology and nutrition are large. They are located in an area that explores the relationship between our daily eating habits, nutrient intake and lifestyle patterns, along with our mood, behavior and mental health. When we have knowledge about ourselves, then we can understand how our habits, lifestyle and behavior affects our life. Only through walking this path we can make better choices on daily basis achieving what we truly need.

 

My first master's degree is Biotechnologies and second in Applied Psychology, and my postgraduate studies are Medical Psychology; Clinical Psychology and Psychopathology; Evolutionary Psychology and Psychiatry; Integrative Psychotherapy. As well as two years of training in holistic nutrition with a degree from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition.

 

I have completed a two-year theoretical training in the psychotherapeutic field of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, part of the EALP  that literally means therapy though meaning, the therapy centered around finding meaning in our lives. The will to meaning is the main motivation for life, where we are body and mind, and the core is our soul. Finding meaning or the will to meaning is the main motivation for life and while we have a body and a mind, the soul is who we are, our identity and core.

 

Additionally, I have been trained and certified in dealing with Trauma, Depression, Panic Attacks and Existential Perspectives as well as Eating Disorders, Nutrition Sciences and Human Nutrition.
