About Happiness Talks

If you are looking to enable a “Happy Mindset” for inner and sustainable happiness rather than a happy event for a short lived pleasure or joy this is the place to be.

On a monthly basis at Happiness Talks we will share with you thought provoking sessions by industry and topic experts, who will give you tips, tools and techniques using the science and neuroscience of happiness, to develop a happy mindset and live a happy lifestyle.

Introduction to Happiness

Happiness is certainly not an option. Everyone wants to be happy, and be happy all the time. It is a very basic and an undeniable human requirement. It is a reality that must be enabled in you to be a happy person for the good of yourself and others, in organisations to achieve better business results and in communities to be a happy country. 

Developing a “Happy Mindset” is where it needs to start otherwise Happiness remains just an event that is short lived, not consistent and definitely not a lifestyle.

Speaker Profiles


Dr. Mariam Ketait
Msc Quality in Healthcare,

Her approach to a healthy lifestyle starts from your thoughts, because healthy thoughts lead to healthy states of being.

When she tackles a health concern she looks at the physical aspect of it: and by that she mean what caused the discord physically (this is usually done by a thorough clinical history and physical exam along with laboratory investigations). This gives Dr Mariam a snap shot of what is going on inside the body. And how we can alleviate the symptoms or restore balance.

She looks at the mindframe, the emotional state and the spiritual aspect of the condition. This means taking a closer look at the thought processes and emotional patterns that are stored in energetic space of the client. This is done by taking the client in a meditative state and using a questioning method to dig deeper into the root cause of the condition.

Usually, this can be a stored traumatic incident or unresolved feelings about a previous experience. Emotional blocks are a result of belief systems and thought patterns that when left unattended to can result in physical manifestations of dis-ease.

Sometimes, just by being aware of those blocks and releasing the emotions stored with them clients will experience instantaneous relief of symptoms.

Our greatest strength as humans is that any negative pattern we have learned, we are also capable of unlearning once we become aware of it. It is thus important to have self awareness. And this can only be done by looking at oneself devoid of judgment, of conclusions and of pre-anticipated points of views.

Once self awareness is achieved it is only a matter of time before vitality, emotional intelligence, and a healthy state of being is restored.
