Hello, I am Emiliya Tsaneva, the founder of Healthy Story Project. My biggest passion is psychotherapy, followed by travelling, writing, giving workshops, learning and speaking foreign languages, as well as taking care of the environment, animals and people. I love dancing, ice-skating, rollerblading, reading books, swimming, having a walk in nature or just sitting and listening to the sound of water. I am Bulgarian, currently living in Sofia. Besides Bulgaria, I have lived in different other countries – Austria, Turkey and Ireland, which helped me get to know other cultures better, feel them closer and also taught me to cherish and love Bulgaria more.
I graduated from the foreign language high school in my hometown Veliko Tarnovo with German and French. After a lot of effort I completed my bachelor degree in Arabic Studies in Sofia University, one semester of which I studied 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 was lucky to study in Ege University in Izmir, Turkey. I graduated with the presentation of my master thesis “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Bulimia”. Meanwhile another dream of mine came true – I went to Ireland and I had an internship in group psychotherapy in the „Life Change Health Institute” there.
A big thank you to all my former and current teachers and mentors, who were and still are there for me throughout this journey!
