Anna Parkman Used Her Unique Life Experiences as a Force for Good

life coach

Anna Parkman– author of the new book “Apocalyptin”– retains a meaningful and eventful past. Her life started in Saint Petersburg, Russia. But, thirteen years ago, she departed Saint Petersburg and headed to the United States, or, more specifically, Miami, Florida.

Though her speciality now lies majorly in psychology, she went to school for something quite different.

Parkman remarks that “[her] original education [granted her] a Bachelor degree in PR from a University in Saint Petersburg.”

Later in life, she realized that PR was not the path for her. So, she became a certified life and health coach once she moved to America. Parkman’s list of psychological specialties is extensive. These areas include, but are not limited to, cognitive behavioral therapy, gestalt therapy, psychoanalysis, body-oriented therapy, art therapy, EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) for trauma, and fairy tale therapy.

Even though this list is quite long, Parkman notes that “this list will be replenished all the time as I study endlessly and in my plans to study many more modalities of psychology.” Her passion for psychology is palpable.

Utilizing the skills she learned and the areas she studied, she currently retains positions as a key opinion leader, lifecoach, and author.

She explains how her methods and continued experience allow her to be most effective in carrying out her current positions: “It is my deep conviction that it is correct to use an integral approach in psychology. It is highly professional to navigate in various types of psychology and combine the most effective tools and materials. This makes the work of a psychologist very effective and gives opportunity for powerful transformations.”

Through all of her experience, Parkman finally felt that she should create a book documenting her life, describing methods to overcoming trauma, and aiding others in utilizing the most effective psychological skills to help them heal and grow.

At the mere age of 9 years-old, Parkman scoured her library for psychology books. She read books from Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, two prominent psychologists who wrote fundamental books on the study of psychology. Her interest in delving into these books came from her recurring life trauma.

Parkman explains these traumas that sparked her interest in studying psychology: “My parents divorced when I was 7… There were many conflicts between adults in the family. I also faced my mother’s cruel behavior towards me. In my personal life, I had a lot of different experiences including different types of abuse.”

Going through things such as this is hard for any person, let alone a child. Parkman was lucky enough to have found reading as both an outlet and a deeper explanation for her feelings and traumas. Now, she plans to add to the list of psychological books on the market today and help others through her writing just like the psychological writing of others helped her.

Parkman describes her new book, “Apocalyptin,” as “a medication that effectively heals childhood traumas.”

She chose the name Apocalyptin for its close relation to the book’s purpose. Apocalyptin comes from the word apocalypse which essentially means the end of the world and the start of a new one.

Parkman hopes that, after reading her book, readers will recognize “the end of [their] old world filled with pain, resentment and suffering and the opening for [them] of a new world, filled with new knowledge and new meanings and possibilities.”

“Apocalyptin” is certain to help readers gain a new view on their life and potentially heal from past traumas. The works of psychologists before her have undoubtedly inspired Parkman to create a work that proves to be just as impactful as theirs.
