Happiness and joy are in demand now more than ever before, but how do we get more of both in our lives is the real question. Thankfully Bestselling Author & Psychologist Susanna Mittermaier has the answer, in her new bestselling book “Advanced Pragmatic Psychology,” which she co-wrote with Gary Douglas.
This book is hands down the winter read you can’t do without, especially if you want to have the life you want. Perceived limitations often hold us back even if we want to be happier, but Mittermaier helps people push past those blockages, to unlock their full potential. Picking up “Advanced Pragmatic Psychology” would be the perfect gift for yourself or someone you love. Mittermaier is a fascinating writer, and her book one of the best of the season, so we were thrilled to catch up with her to find out more.
Susanna, you are a distinguished clinical psychologist, and in this book, you talk about how people can have a life in which they wake up every morning feeling the joy of being alive, which sounds amazing. You offer readers tools that can help them get there. What inspired you to write this book?
I desire for people to know that problems and struggle do not have to be what your life is about. There is a different possibility available. One that allows you to have, do and be whatever you desire in life and it may be much easier than you think.
I know you have a lot of fans. What was the most interesting feedback or question you have received from a reader?
This is my favorite feedback until this moment:
“There are so many topics covered in this book by Gary and Susanna. There’s no way this book won’t benefit everyone. There’s one catch though – you have to consider being happy and having a happy life as truly something that’s possible.”
During the pandemic, more people are struggling with grief and depression, as well as other issues. Can you talk about how “Advanced Pragmatic Psychology” can help them deal with these issues and move forward during this time?
While there may be messages of fear, anxiety and uncertainty about the future, you do not have to be at the affect of it. Rather than agreeing with the messages of fear, ask questions. Look at what is true for you and follow that. This book is filled with tips and tools that will assist you with doing just that.
You are both a renowned clinical psychologist and psychotherapist and now a bestselling author. What’s next for you?
More! More books, more classes, more videos and more of anything and everything that will be fun and inspire the world to greater possibilities.
“Advanced Pragmatic Psychology” is available on Amazon.
