HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODOR!
‘Three years ago I fell in love with Tony J. Selimi, a leading human behaviour specialist and spiritual teacher who not only changed my thinking in profound ways, but also inspired me to broaden my horizons as a medical doctor. It is my love for him that made me move to England, give up my career, reputation and everything that I had build there to come to London.
With his unconditional love and clarity, I learned to overcome many challenges and now to be working as a doctor in UK. Tony, together with some of his private clients who are medical doctors and successful leaders in their field, helped me to accelerate the endless process, paperwork, and additional training required to obtain my GMC licence to practice and satisfy all of the criteria. One of his friends, helped me to get a clinical attachment work at one of the leading hospitals in London where I updated my expertise, learned the latest diagnostic approaches, systems used, and start to offer bespoke medical treatments in accordance with the newest medical guidelines.
In parallel with my career in General Medicine and cardiology, I am expanding my skills, knowledge, and awareness through attending a lot of workshops and seminars in internal medicine, acute medicine, cardiology, rheumatology, haematology, toxicology and gastroenterology.
I have also attended numerous personal development courses organised by my partner, the cognition expert, speaker, educator and award-winning author and the creator of the TJSeMethod whose twenty five conscious engineering principles have helped many people on their healing journey. This has inspired me to elevate my personal vibration, thinking, and purpose in life.
What inspired you to create your business?

She was my inspiration and the force that guided me through endless long nights of study various medical exams. Following a kidney failure, at the age of 59 she passed away in hospital. Her passing away made me question so many things about life and god. It was at this very uncertain, sad, and emotionally destroying times that my paths crossed with my partner Tony who ever since we met has helped me heal, transform, and inspired me to be even better doctor and human being.

Where do you turn for inspiration and why?
On a daily basis I see so many patients with a range of health issues, some of them end up dying in my hands and telling me their last wishes. If not careful, it can be very emotional experience that can impact your mental health, especially if you are the one baring the news to their loved ones. As a result, I see many of the colleagues I work suffer from stress, mental health and physical health issues. Personally, I consider myself to be very blessed as I have Tony as my partner. His clarity, presence and wisdom is always there to inspire me after a long day at work, that on its own is priceless.
