The Happiness Trap -- first came the book; now comes the workshop!

The Happiness Trap is a unique and empowering self-help book - half a million copies sold, and translated into 22 languages - that will enrich your life and fundamentally transform the way you handle difficult thoughts and painful feelings.

The title reflects a key theme in the book: popular ideas about happiness are misleading or inaccurate, and will make you miserable in the long term, if you base your life on them. (To download the first chapter of The Happiness Trap, at no cost, click here.) And now, due to popular demand, the 'Happiness Trap' 1-day Workshop is here.

The Happiness Trap is based on the principles of ACT, a revolutionary new mindfulness-based model, developed from cutting-edge research in behavioural psychology. The aim of ACT is to maximise human potential for a rich and meaningful life, and a wealth of published scientific studies prove its effectiveness. So if you want to escape “the happiness trap” and find meaning and fulfillment in life, this book is for you.
 (Note: this book steers well clear of popular but non-scientific approaches, such as 'positive thinking', 'positive affirmations' and 'self-hypnosis'; although such techniques may make you feel good in the short term, they simply do not work in the long term.)

Now, at last, you can enrol in the 'Happiness Trap' Workshop -- an action-packed, 1-day self-development workshop, for happiness, wellbeing and vitality. Click Here To Find Out More
