Dr Timothy
J. Sharp

Founder, The Happiness Institute.


The Happiness Institute was established in September, 2003 by Dr. Timothy J. Sharp.

Dr. Sharp (also known as Dr. Happy) is a well-known, highly regarded clinical and coaching psychologist who has devoted the last few years of his career to building an award winning private practice from which he and his team have helped thousands of people overcome problems such as depression, anxiety, stress, insomnia and relationship difficulties.

Dr. Timothy Sharp is also a lecturer at the Universities of Sydney and New South Wales, a best selling author (of "The Happiness Handbook" and "The Good Sleep Guide", published by Penguin Australia), and a highly regarded corporate and public speaker whose lectures and workshops cover topics such as work/life balance, personal productivity, time management, stress management and, of course, happiness.

In addition to the wonderful work the clinicians in his practice do, and will continue to do to alleviate suffering in those who are distressed, Dr. Sharp has determined to devote more of his energies to enhancing happiness (not just reducing distress). To assist with this endeavour he has brought together a fantastic and energetic team of caring and happy professionals to assist him deliver The Happiness Institute's services.

Tim managed the role very well. Given he was not familiar with the PSP initially, his understanding and appreciation of his audience developed significantly over the two days. National Employment Services Association

DMC Outsourcing were delighted with the presentations and work sessions presented by Dr. Tim Sharp of The Happiness Institute. The sessions were informative, engaging and delivered everyone personal insights into how they can manage themselves to create a sense of well being and achievement. From an organisational perspective, we have developed expertise based on personal strengths, and have adopted strategies from The Happiness Institute’s CHOOSE model to play to personal and organisational strengths, work on internal and external relationships, improve clarity, be optimistic and enjoy the moment. The sessions provided a great foundation for improving how we operate as a business, and I really appreciate the enthusiasm Tim has engendered in DMC.

Our organisation recently went though a series of significant changes. Leading up to the transition, we were looking to create a springboard from which our people could thrive in the new environment - to reignite the spark that existed before changes were announced. One of our strategies was to enlist the help of Dr. Tim Sharp from the Happiness Institute to assist us in designing programs to keep staff engaged in the business. Tim understood our needs and the content of the workshops was perfect for the outcome we were looking for. The feedback from staff was extremely positive with many staff expressing their gratitude that the organisation had anticipated and provided for their needs in such a considered way. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Tim Sharp and the Happiness Institute.

If you think being happy is important, you need to check out The Happiness Institute and its Chief Happiness Officer, Dr Tim Sharp. I recently organised a visit from Dr Sharp to a group of Melbourne Alumni from the Australian Graduate School of Management. Tim established his credentials with the audience very early in the presentation, which helped open their minds to his message. He was both entertaining and informing. The group of mainly MBA postgraduates - an audience more used to financial models than happiness models - received Tim’s presentation with eager questioning, a few giggles and a warm round of applause. I thoroughly recommend a visit from Dr Happy for your next corporate workshop or work/life balance education program.
