Regarding his work, Dr. O'Brien said, “For my entire life, my emotions, psychological functioning, and overall quality of life had been controlled by my totally unrecognized addiction to my own Automatic Negative Thoughts, ANTS.”
Dr. O'Brien grew up with a parent whose mental illness was not diagnosed for more than 10 years. His own emotional distress began to manifest itself physically when he was 7 years-old - he was unable to speak without a humiliating stammer and stutter.
Driven by his fear of suffering mental illness like his parent, he spent more than fifty years struggling emotionally, reading, studying human emotions, and the way we think. His life mission became how to find lasting happiness and emotional peace. This led to Dr. O'Brien developing Thinkiatry's Principles and Process to exterminate individual's unique ANT Colonies and his subsequent book - Live A Happier A.N.T. Free Life Or Your Money Back!
A partial list of emotional conditions that can be self-treated and significantly reduced, or in some cases eliminated, when people learn to use Thinkiatry Principles includes: divorce, weight problems, stress anxiety, addictions, anger, sadness, hatred, obesity, jealousy, insecurity, bullying, loneliness, arrogance, hypocrisy and fear.
Live A Happier A.N.T. Free Life Or Your Money Back! is presented as a coaching guide to explain how Dr. O'Brien's more than fifty-year personal struggle to find the Holy Grail of personal development, emotional health, and a happier life has come true, as it will for countless readers or their money back!
A reader from Perth, Australia who reviewed the book said, “This book is an outstanding piece of work. I simply cannot recommend it enough for those seeking an inner peace. In many ways John's principles and experiences at the harsh coal face of life have combined in what is in many ways ground breaking work. If you want answers, then this is the book!”
Dr. O'Brien provides a full schedule of “Live” Online Group and Private Tutored Workshops to coach reader's transitions to include Thinkiatry's Principles as their daily life partners on his website (http://www.happierantfreelife.com).
