About the program.

The Happiness Trap began as a unique and empowering self-help book, translated into 30 languages, with over half a million copies sold. Now Russ has transformed it into a life-changing interactive online course.

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 is the course for you!
