I designed and wrote Everyday Happy for my son.

At nine years old he suffered agonizing anxiety, and subsequently withdrew from school, sports, his friends, and the fun of life…

(read about it here)

Throughout this experience I kept thinking, the whole ‘helping’ process was way too focused on the problem. Every single meeting focused a lot on the anxiety! There was very little mention of the goal… And when it was, the ‘goal’ was ALL about getting him back to school.

I thought we needed a BIGGER, more powerful, and life affirming goal. I realised that we needed to focus on Happiness, and if we did put Happiness first, everything else should fall into place.

I stopped complaining to everyone I met, stopped listening to every piece of advice offered, and changed my reading material, steering away from ‘books about anxiety’ and seeking out happiness books instead.

I found a lot of the books I read were aimed at  me, the programs were aimed at me, and if they were for my child, required me to somehow make him comply. What they didn’t really do is speak to him, nor give him the opportunity to take ownership of his healing. They didn’t empower him!

They did however educate, empower and drive me to create Everyday Happy as a way to help him.

Two years on and he is happily taking himself to school each day, and fully participating in life as a normal 11 year old should. I am so proud of the work he has done to get to this point, and of our family for coming through this, stronger than ever.

This book is the ‘thing’ I felt was missing in my search for help.              If you would like more information, please leave me a message in the comments, or contact me on:
