My name is Elmira Strange, and I am Motivational Psychologist (MPhil) and Certified Life Coach (Dip). I am passionate about working with students who want to learn about Psychology, Psychotherapy, Counselling, and Coaching.
My previous work involved Research Psychology and Lecturing at University (UK) on the topics of Psychology & Counselling.
The unusual bit: I was born in Northern Kazakhstan (where it’s freezing cold in winter -40C and really hot summers +40C), then moved to Moscow, Russia, and finally to London, UK.
The interesting bit: I had life-saving surgery and a 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, Motivation, Self-Development, Therapy
My previous experience: Whilst I was working at University (Wales, UK) as a Senior Researcher and Psychology Lecturer (prior to Udemy), my focus was on ‘Researching Stress in Families of Disabled Children’ where I had to learn what makes people stressed and unhappy.
Since 2006 I am working as an ‘online entrepreneur’: writing blogs and books, creating YouTube videos, and teaching Psychology & Self-Development which has become my true passion. In my Udemy courses, I combine my extensive knowledge of ‘online entrepreneurship’ and my passion for Motivational Psychology, Coaching, and Psychotherapy.
