About Duncan Harris 

Training & Qualifications

Experience with key Issues


Duncan Harris

I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor who

has worked in a variety of settings spanning Third Sector

organisations including Mind, as well as Crisis Helplines

and The Scottish Executive. A diversity of experience

has helped me become an attentive listener, and facilitate

alternative perspectives with those I work with in therapy.

I have also  spent over a decade as an advisor, researcher and

consultant in Organisational Development and HR strategy

for global organisations. 

Training & Qualifications

More than 8 years experience training in psychotherapy and counselling with The Philadelphia Association, The Westminster Pastoral Foundation, and The Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis based in London. I have a Post Graduate Masters in Philosophy from Warwick University, an Honours Degree from Durham University, and I am a registered Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with the U.K.C.P.

Experience with key issue

Each person has a unique life story, and should be treated as such. I have worked with clients affected by:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Relationship challenges & conflict

  • Gender & sexuality 

  • Addictions and substance misuse

  • Bereavement

  • Obsessions & compulsions


I adhere to an inclusive and pluralistic understanding of psychotherapy which means taking a non-judgemental approach that recognises you and your context as the starting point for any therapeutic experience. My approach and training has been influenced by modern and classical practitioners and thinkers including Sigmund Freud, R.D. Laing, D.W. Winnicott, Jessica Benjamin, Julia Kristeva, Michel Foucault, Samuel Beckett, Franz Fanon and Judith Butler.
