Happiness Development – Yu Takizawa

Yu Takizawa    Quals: B Sc (Hons), M Couns, M App Psych                                 

Happiness Development: Happiness and satisfaction in life can be one of the people’s ultimate goals for living. But, we tend to focus on negative parts in our lives and we often feel “we do not know how to become happy”. When difficult time continues, we sometime forget that “we are living to enjoy our lives and strive for happiness”.

Counselling Approach: The shape of happiness is unique for each of us as we all have unique preferences and needs. Yu can explore people’s unique needs and preferences, which are essential for achieving happiness and life satisfaction, and assist people to explore steps and options for fulfilling own needs and developing happiness.

Psychologists have been researching not only “how to deal with mental problems” but also “how to support people for achieving happiness and better life satisfaction”. In fact, many of the strategies used for treating problems in psychotherapy/counselling are also effective strategies for improving people’s happiness. Yu’s preferred approaches include Person-Centred Approach, Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based approaches, and Neuropsychotherapy.

Fees:  Sliding Scale depending on circumstances, usually $220 for initial appointment, $180 thereafter. Medicare and health rebates may apply. Please contact reception if you require reduced rates.
