I create space for empowering conversations at work
Here's a bit more about my story:
With 10+ years in human development, I had the opportunity to work with tech giants, startups, universities and non-profit organizations in Bulgaria, US, and UK. As a result, I've come to realize that the most needed skill in the future, regardless of role or culture, is not only the ability to learn but also our ability to manage our internal state.
I started NotYourTherapy to bring these two pieces together. We help people to feel better, learn new human skills and improve their mental fitness. On a personal note, I also care because:
Conflict and toxic culture split into parts my best team.
I’ve lost a friend due to workaholism.
My mom suffers from depression for > 20yrs.
It doesn't need to be like that. I see a future where people proactively work on their self-awareness, mental and emotional state, without shame or fear. Just like we do physical exercise to keep in shape. So in addition to coaching, I'm looking for the best way to make psychological help appealing and accessible - at work, where we spend most of our time.
