I am a psychotherapist, now retired after too many years to count of successful practice. I am Austrian, but spent much of my life in southern Africa, before moving to England and eventually settling in Spain, where I still live with my wife of 36 years. Much of my professional work had to do with relationship issues, but also with mental and anxiety problems. During my working life I have learned much about feelings and emotions, and that we are governed by them. I have also learned that we can use our cognitive ablilities to change our feelings. Since whatever we do is the result of our feelings, the knowledge of changing our feelings gives us enormous power. The power to greatly influence our life, and the power to be happy. As Aristotle said: Happiness is the ultimate value, the highest good.
My book Happiness Discovered shows that we all can learn to become happy.
