EmiliyaMy name is Emiliya Tsaneva, founder of Healthy Story Project. My biggest passion is psychotherapy, followed by travelling, foreign languages, animal welfare and environmental protection. I love dancing, ice-skating, rollerblading, reading books, swimming or just listening to the sound of water. I am Bulgarian, currently living in Sofia. I have lived in different countries – Austria, Turkey and Ireland. This helped me understand other cultures better and also gave me the opportunity to cherish more what I have back home in Bulgaria.

I graduated the foreign language high school in my home town Veliko Tarnovo, focusing on German and French. After a lot of effort I completed my bachelor degree in Arabic Studies in Sofia University, studying one of the semesters in the University of Vienna, Austria. Then I followed another passion of mine graduating as a yoga teacher from the National Sports Academy in Sofia. After that I completed my masters in Psychology in the University of Veliko Tarnovo, two semesters of which I had the luck to study in Ege University in Izmir, Turkey. I graduated presenting my master thesis “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Bulimia”. Meanwhile another dream of mine came true – I went to Ireland and there I had internship in group psychotherapy in the „Life Change Health Institute”.

Then I followed my passion to study psychotherapy and in 2016 enrolled in the Gestalt psychotherapy institute in Sofia, Bulgaria. Since 2019 I am specializing in the Bulgarian psychotherapy academy of Arhieng as well. Currently I am giving self-development workshops, I am working with people individually live and online, I am writing articles and filming videos for Healthy Story. Furthermore, from May 2016 until September 2019 I have been facilitating online support groups for people with eating disorders, which are part of the Eating Disorders Association of Ireland “Bodywhys”.

I have been through a lot in my life until now. This gave me diverse experience and opportunities to try out myself the methodology I am now using in my therapeutic work with people. I am not perfect; neither do I intend to become so. I believe that a person will always have something more to learn and I find this beautiful. I am happy and content with myself and what I do, but I am still enthusiastic about learning new things and growing as a person.
