I am so exited to have started my PhD studies at the doctoral programme in Psychology at the University of Jyväskylä besides my work as an entrepreneur at True Potential.
I started my studies in January 2021, and this spring I have taken the advantage of doing many studies online which normally might have been face to face.
As part of the doctoral program I have done research ethics, doctoral writing skills, finding your voice as a researcher and just starting to prepare a proposal to the Ethical Committee of the University to get a permission to start my research. It has been 21 years since my last academic research which was my masters thesis, and it is exiting to start to form my identity as a researcher along with my strong identity as a professional coach.
During this spring I have also done several subject-related studies in psychology, which are Neuro- Psychology 2, Clinical Psychology 1 and 2, Personality Psychology 2 and most propably also Work Psychology 2. It has been interesting to notice how work and life experience as well my earlier professional development, will help to put things into context.
