My Purpose

Joe Bailey’s life purpose is to help people find true happiness and peace of mind. Towards this end, he studied psychology at the undergraduate and graduate levels, eventually becoming a licensed psychologist.  For the past forty-six years, Joe’s desire to understand the connection between the psychological, physical and spiritual facets of human beings has pulled him into a deeper understanding of the whole person and away from the current fragmented view.  His search led to a health-based approach to counseling, prevention programs, workplace wellness and the attainment of a personal life of peace, joy and fulfillment for all people called Three Principles Psychology.

The New Paradigm
Turning Point

In 1980, I was fortunate to learn of a paradigm shift happening in psychology. It was in its infancy but showed promise in illuminating the constant principles behind all human experience–whether in people with mental dysfunction or very successful people who were functioning at levels of creativity, resilience, performance, and success.

Since that initial introduction to the new paradigm and realizing the principles personally in my own life, my whole approach to counseling and educating others began a dramatic shift towards helping to bring out the natural resilience in my clients and students vs. treating their symptoms and illnesses. Therefore, my therapy began to focus on educating my clients on how their mind works to create their personal psychological reality from the inside out, rather than rummaging through their past history for “why” they were unhappy, depressed, addicted, anxious, and so on. My clients were relieved and grateful that I was finally teaching them “to fish”, rather than making them dependent on years of counseling to keep them in supply of fresh fish. It was empowering to them and to me as their guide. I taught them something that gave them the understanding to continue to heal themselves and have insights about how to live their lives more effectively and successfully.

Don’t let fear rule your life. Throughout time, we have sought peace and safety by trying to outguess the unknown. We have tried to prepare for the unexpected and the apparitions of our minds. 

 In an age of 24-hour cable news, when we can stay glued to the latest terrorist attack or natural disaster, the next epidemic, and what the pundits tell us we should be afraid of, our efforts to control the unknown and keep ourselves safe have led to a collective as well as a personal sensation of fear. We have become addicted to fear.
