About me

Imagine a place where you're listened to with respect and understanding, a safe space where you're able to get a new perspective on whatever's causing you distress or preventing positive change in your life. That place is counselling: working together, finding wisdom, catalyzing change.

Having worked for several organisations in London (including Wandsworth Carers' Centre, Family Psychological Services, and Cassiobury Court rehab clinic), I'm now based in Exeter. We can meet in my comfortable consulting room or in the healing natural space of a local park.

I'm interviewed in the Winter issue of JUNO magazine. They write: "It's hard to imagine a more grounded therapist than Adrian Harris".

Your situation is unique, so my integrative approach draws on a range of therapeutic traditions to find what works best for you. My practice honours the deep wisdom of the body, integrating ancient practices of both East and West with cutting edge science.

While my practice is based at my Gandy Street therapy rooms, I also offer 'walk and talk' ecotherapy sessions in local green spaces. In this outdoor work, the natural environment becomes a kind of co-therapist and can very much enhance the healing process. However, counselling outdoors is not recommended for all clients at all times and much of my practice is based at my Exeter therapy rooms.
