About the Author


Michael Adamedes has been a clinical psychotherapist in private practice since 1982. He is an astute detective of the unconscious mind and has created and developed Dysfunctional Pattern Clearing, a therapy for releasing a person’s negative psychological and emotional patterns. Many of his clients have experienced a transformation from being alone and unhappy to falling in love and finding their soul mate, from never having a cent in the bank to being able to buy investment properties, or from being constantly disillusioned with life to being vital and happy.

By 2004, Michael came to the conclusion that any unhappiness or stress is the result of just three categories of self-limiting beliefs. His remarkable discovery is revealed to the general public for the first time in this book. Michael explains the origins of this book, “In August 2008, while conducting a personal development retreat in Bali, I sat down at my laptop and the skeleton of the book emerged effortlessly over the next three days. At times, during the writing process, I had tears of joy as the power of the words overcame me. I showed my draft to my friend and colleague, Robert Prior, and together we developed it into a powerful yet simple tool that we hope will transform the lives of people across the world.”


Robert Prior is the founder of a leading Australian tuition college for secondary school students. He is a brilliant and inspiring mathematics teacher, logical and thorough, while also being creative and fun. One of his greatest strengths is the ability to make complex matters seem simple. Robert is also a musician and composer and has promoted the Australian tours of a number of international musicians.

In late 1991, during a period of major emotional upheaval, Robert turned to self-help books, self-examination, meditation and the guidance of inspirational people. According to Robert, “For most of my life, I had been operating predominantly on logic and rationality. However, because that approach was no longer making me happy, I made a commitment to finding a deep and lasting inner peace.” At one particularly difficult time, Robert was referred to Michael Adamedes for counselling. He found Michael’s innovative techniques so effective that he quickly found he no longer needed therapy. Robert and Michael forged a deep friendship and began collaborating on various personal development projects, culminating in this wonderful, uplifting book.

Format: Paperback
In reading "Say Hello to Happiness", I have found many new insights into how my mind and emotions work.

Aiming to bring happiness to the readers, Say Hello to Happiness provides more than just instructions. Rather than leading the readers straight into the 31-day programme, the book first explores the different aspects of the human mind which affect our emotion. Things such as thoughts, feelings and personality, which we don't often think of, are defined and analysed to give us insights on how we can control our emotions. Such insights are helpful as we go through the positive affirmations in the 31-day programme.

The groundbreaking Adamedes' Triad is described with simple terms that can be understood easily by all readers. The three self-limiting beliefs are well explained with examples of corresponding resultant behaviour, which allow us to draw parallels and identify the causes of our unhappiness. The affirmations in the 31-day programme can then help us in overcoming these negative beliefs.

Say Hello to Happiness is a great combination of theoretical knowledge of the human mind and practical methods of breaking down negative emotions. From those who are seeking ways to get out of stress to those who simply wants to have a read about our emotions, this book is highly recommended. Don't forget to enjoy the pretty illustrations as well!

Format: Paperback
Immaculately structured and well written, this work speaks volumes to the emotional challenges inherent in the world today - this book WILL change lives!

Michael Adamedes and Robert Prior's jointly psychological and practical guide towards achieving happiness offers the reader an unparalleled insight through a more enlightened lens by which to perceive emotional causation and its underlying significance. As I first read `Say Hello to Happiness' I felt as if a personal trainer was beside me the entire journey, motivating and encouraging me to see the truth and beauty embedded within the world around me.

Written in a tastefully accessible style, the book's integrated form initially deconstructs the psychological causes of emotional distress, before then providing proven and enjoyable techniques for overcoming depressive and anxious states. The work is impressively supplemented by Tetiana Koldunenko's vibrant and thought-provoking illustrations, but it is by far its warm, conversational phrasing which renders the book distinctive from others within the motivational domain.

Addressing seemingly irresolvable emotional problems of the everyday, striking to the core of their concern with sustainable long-term solutions - there is undoubtedly no one to whom this book does not have the utmost of relevance.

Format: Paperback
I read the book in one go (sorry, I didn't take the suggested route of the 31 day plan. I am impulsive at the best of times). It was great to do a refresher in my positive thinking education. It is amazing how one can so easily slip back into negative old habits.

I found the book very easy to read and very well laid out. I liked very much the clarification of terms at the beginning: thoughts, beliefs and personality. I also liked the suggestions on how to use affirmations and the way those pages were presented on the noticeboard. The book explains very clearly with examples, the power of changing your thoughts and therefore your quality of life.

Chapter 3 is a new way to look at self-limiting beliefs. Who would have thought it would be so easy to break it down into three categories? It was great to show the examples in the Venn diagram with affirmation suggestions for changing those beliefs. I think I know someone who fits into the centre of the diagram. God help them! This was perhaps the most enlightening part of the book because it was new information to me.

I sometimes scratch my head at books that come out such as `The Secret'. The author just repackaged what has been said a million times before but with a catchy title and good marketing, this book gives us something new.

This book is a beautiful addition to my personal library. I have read and analysed it on a day to day basis.

In my opinion, the book could be an effective navigator for people, particularly, teenagers to find a way to get out of stress, which is a fairly common element of adolescence. I still remember the painful suicide of my son's classmate in Year 11 and wish he could have been handed such a book.

Format: Paperback
When I first picked up Say Hello to Happiness, I expected a book which would outline a framework through which I could achieve happiness. What I didn't expect was the simple reasoning behind what makes me feel the emotions that I feel. I think that one of the achievements of this book is that it balances a personal and effective action plan with a well-written explanation of the groundbreaking Adamedes Triad of Self Limiting Beliefs.

The 31 day action plan contains 31 positive and empowering affirmations that any reader can understand. I found that each affirmation was direct and concise, which helped the understanding of the affirmation that much easier. Although I have not taken each affirmation one day at a time, I believe that these 31 meaningful phrases when used as a 31 day action plan will add a bright and positive perspective into anyone's day.

What I personally found useful was the section describing the Adamedes Triad. Although I can hardly be called an expert, I have read articles and have had discussions with friends regarding psychology. What I found was that at times explanations regarding our minds can be complicated and convoluted. However, the Adamedes Triad is a simple and well-understood principle that does not take any prior knowledge of psychology to understand. This I found particularly helpful since it explains the underlying causes of limiting behaviours and gives a strong theoretical backbone for the 31 day action plan to rest on.

Overall, the great combination of inspirational messages presented in a clear manner supported by compelling conclusions based upon years of experiences makes this a great book and an excellent key to becoming a happier person.
