“You deserve to be happy and to live a life you love. It’s time to stop settling for less than what you really want and choosing the easy path over love, joy, happiness, passion, self expression, adventure, freedom, peace and inner calm. It’s time to make yourself a priority in your own life and become your own best friend… so let’s do this together, you and I, walking side by side as you create a life you love and as you choose to be happy”. (Marie Houlden)

In ‘I Choose to be Happy’, Marie Houlden shares what it means to choose happiness and how to fall in love with your life again. Marie has worked with hundreds of people in thousands of sessions and workshops and has seen how the impact of believing in yourself, thinking differently and choosing to be happy impacts how you feel about yourself and about your life. It’s the difference between surviving each day and loving each day.

The book contains a mixture of theory and exercises for you to complete, so you can actually take the information and apply it to your life and your emotions now. This is more than a quick read, this is a book that if you let it, will transform how you think, the choices you make and ultimately the life you choose to create.

Everything she shares in the book is tried and tested in her own life and amongst her clients. Throughout the book she shares these examples with you, so that you can see for yourself that transformation is possible when you change your mindset and you finally believe in yourself.

‘I Choose to be Happy’ will give you…


Help you to identify the areas of life where you are settling and give you clarity on what you really want from your life


Show you what fear is really about and how you can begin to feel fear but take action anyway


Help you to rediscover who you are, rebuilding your confidence and sense of self worth. It’s time to love the woman you see in the mirror


Help you to understand where and why you’ve been sabotaging your own success and happiness and finally helping you commit to having the life you truly desire


Support you in creating healthy relationships, by helping you to understand your boundaries and feel confident in lovingly enforcing them, it’s time to stop people pleasing


It will help you to forgive yourself and others and finally let go, allowing yourself to feel light, free and in flow with life


Wow, what a thought provoking book. Definitely not a book to be rushed through. Personally, some of the content and questions were quite confronting for me; it made me face things that I had previously overlooked and chosen not to deal with. I didn’t realise how much I was holding onto the past and old emotions; it was an eye opener for sure.

The exercises in each chapter helped to give me more clarity on how I was really feeling and it highlighted the thinking and actions that were hindering me from really being happy. Since reading this book and implementing some of the practical tips, I have more self awareness, I feel more calm and relaxed and I do feel happier with my life.

Meet the author

Marie is a Mindset Coach, EFT Practitioner and Energy Healer for Sensitive Souls.

She works with amazing people like you, who know they’re destined for more and are ready to confront the belief that they have no choice but to settle for the life they’re living. The only problem is you’re feeling overwhelmed and you’re running out of energy – emotionally, physically and spiritually. Often your caring nature can feel like a burden and you know you take on too much responsibility for others.

You’re also sick of that cruel voice in your head, which fills you with self-doubt and makes you lose faith in yourself and your decisions. You wonder if you’re special enough, deserving enough or can even create the life you deeply crave. Releasing your limiting beliefs and facing your fears head on, will help you to silence your inner-critic once and for all.

“You’ll finally move on with a strong belief in yourself and your capabilities and with an inner knowing that you can have everything you’ve ever wanted.”
