How GNH Helped Graduate Unnur Birgisdóttir to Find Her Way

Unnur comes from Iceland, but lived in Copenhagen for five years with her husband and two children. She studied at the Bachelor’s Degree Programme in Global Nutrition and Health where she took the specialization in Lifestyle Coaching and Fitness Management (now Lifestyle and Health Education) and graduated in January 2013.

She then decided to take a Master of Science in Coaching Psychology at the University of East London and is expecting to graduate in September 2014 with a thesis that investigates the benefits of life coaching on 16- and 17-year-old Icelandic college students who are in danger of dropping out of school. Once she graduates, she is planning to take a PhD, likely at the University of Copenhagen.

The Master that she is completing in London allows her to study from home, in Iceland, where she works as a professional life coach both independently and with other coaches. You can visit Unnur’s website here

When Unnur came to visit us at GNH in February 2014, we grabbed the chance to ask her a few questions about her inspiring journey, and in the following interview she will also tell you how GNH helped her to find her way.

“I was kind of lost. I didn’t know what to do with my life. And when I did the coaching module here I could really see that this was something that I had to take further.”

  4. Hi! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I had
    to ask. Does building a well-established website
    such as yours require a large amount of work? I am brand new
    to operating a blog however I do write in my diary every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and feelings online.

    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips
    for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could
    a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
