Do you ever feel worried, miserable or unfulfilled - yet put on a happy face and pretend everything's fine? You are not alone. Stress, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem are all around. Research suggests that many of us get caught in a psychological trap, a vicious circle in which the more we strive for happiness, the more it eludes us.

Fortunately, there is a way to escape from the 'Happiness Trap', a ground-breaking new approach based on mindfulness skills. Using the six principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Russ Harris can help you to:
* Reduce stress and worry
* Rise above fear, doubt and insecurity
* Handle painful thoughts and feelings more effectively
* Break self-defeating habits
* Improve performance and find fulfilment in your work
* Build more satisfying relationships
* Create a richer and more meaningful life
