Dr Amy Johnson on Psychology, Spirituality, Bad Moods and How to Find Your Way

Have you met Dr Amy Johnson?

Amy is one of my favorite psychologists.

I spoke to her last week. We talked about all sorts, including:

  • Why a lot of traditional self help can leave you feeling worse
  • Anxiety—Amy shares her own personal story about how she used to have severe panic attacks and how by changing her philosophy she over came this
  • Bad moods—how to see them so they’re not as unpleasant
  • How to balance advice we’re given with what’s right for us
  • Why our habit of looking ahead can keep us stuck and how we can stop doing this
  • And lots more!

You can watch the full interview here…

You can read more about Dr Amy Johnson at her website DrAmyJohnson.com

The book I talk about in the interview is her second book, Being Human: Essays on Thoughtmares, Bouncing Back, and Your True Nature.

Amy’s work is guided by Three Principles Psychology. You can learn more about the Three Principles here.

Also … and this is very cool.

If you have any questions you’d like to ask Amy—say, about how something applies to your situation—write them below. Amy says she’s happy to come back and answer a bunch in a second interview.

    Hi Lisa

    I came across your blog, as i have been reading Amy’s for over a year now.
    I enjoyed your piece where you remained in silence for a year and your interview with her just yesterday.

    Am curious to read up a bit more on your philosophy/approach to life.

    Would be great to hear from you.

    Thanks
    Karolina

    • Hi Karolina,
      Have you downloaded my book and signed up to my newsletter? That’s probably the best way to hear more about my approach to life. You can do that in the box in the right hand column. Thanks for say hi! =)

    Thank you Lisa for this, enjoyed Amy’s book too. Couldn’t have come at the right time too…just about to move out to Australia on my own, looking at packing boxes around me, the mind is doing overtime…go..stay….my feelings about the decision…I just don’t know hopefully an answer will come soon! Thanks again both

    • Hey Jacqui,

      I hope our short discussion on not needing to see 10 steps ahead was helpful for you! Of course you can’t possibly know right now what your move will bring, and of course you don’t have to. All you’re doing today is looking at boxes. From this place, you’ll follow your inclinations and do what occurs to you to do. Tomorrow, you’ll follow your inclinations and do what occurs to you to do from that place. And on and on. Good luck in your move–enjoy the uncertainty and letting things unfold around you!

  4. What i do not understood is in reality how you aare not actually a lot more neatly-favored than you might be right now.
    Yoou are very intelligent. You know thus significantly on the subject of
    this subject, produced me in myy opinion consider it from a llot of varied
    angles. Its like men and women are not interested unless it’s one thing to do with Woman gaga!

    Your individual stuffs outstanding. At all times maintain it up!
