Prince Harry of Wales: A Champion of Counseling

Even a prince can find his life improved with the help of a professional counselor.

The counseling profession got a big boost on the global stage recently with an endorsement from Prince Harry of Wales, the youngest son of Princess Diana and Prince Charles.

Prince HarryThe former helicopter pilot credits counseling with helping him get his life on course, in particular by helping him deal with emotions he had tried to ignore since the death of his mother when he was 12 years old.

He’s been talking about the positive effects of counseling in a round of press sessions, including a news interview with The Telegraph and a Telegraph column by Bryony Gordon, who interviewed the prince for the first episode of her Mad World podcast. The 30-minute podcast is part of a 10-episode series of interviews with high-profile guests who discuss their mental health experiences.

The Washington Post also followed the prince’s story, with an April 17 “Morning Mix” round-up article.

Prince Harry’s public discussion of his counseling experience is part of a mental health awareness project presented by Heads Together, a charity the prince founded with his brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. 

Heads Together is a partnership that includes eight mental health organizations—Best Beginnings (for new mothers), CALM – The Campaign Against Living Miserably (male suicide prevention), Contact (a military mental health coalition), Mind (ensuring everyone who has a mental health problem gets support and respect), Place2Be (for children), The Mix (support for those younger than 25), YoungMinds (helping children and young people), and The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families.

The Heads Together program is the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon Charity of the Year. The April 23 marathon is expected to feature a field of 40,000 runners, many of them wearing the organization’s iconic blue headband. Kensington Palace has been tweeting about the race.
