The Happiness Trap

Just suppose for a moment that almost everything you believed about finding happiness turned out to be inaccurate, misleading or false. And suppose that those very beliefs were making you miserable. What if your very efforts to find happiness were actually preventing you from achieving it? And what if almost everyone you knew turned out to be in the same boat — including all those psychologists, psychiatrists and self-help gurus who claim to have all the answers?

I have more than 8 years of experience working with acceptance and commitment therapy. After studying psychology at university and completing my masters, I began training as an ACT therapist. After working in the NHS treating those with emotional health issues I decided to start up my own practice in Northampton. I love working with people, helping them to develop skills and ways of thinking that help them live more fulfilling lives.
