My name is Reen Rose. I’m a clinically depressed happiness maven. These terms may seem like unlikely bedfellows, but happiness isn’t just about being your genes or your circumstances, it’s about your intentions and the life choices you make.

I lived a happy life – until I didn’t. Because I hadn’t learned skills to manage my well-being or help me understand that I was responsible for my own happiness, when I slumped into a deep depression in my early thirties, I had no idea what to do. My journey back to happiness, and my determination to make sure my children never found themselves in the same situation, led me to create the Modelling Happiness approach to mental wellbeing.


The first time I saw Reen Rose speak, I was mesmerized by her quick wit and humour as she gracefully held the attention of every set of eyes and ears in the room. Her clear ability to deliver her message in a way that gets people excited and wanting more is one of Reen’s greatest strengths as a professional trainer and speaker.  Reen is entertaining, engaging, informative and funny, and I look forward to hearing her speak or attending one of her workshops again in the near future.
