Prince Harry’s therapy journey amid claims he called therapist before Meghan after William row

Over recent years, the Duke of Sussex has been vocal about his mental health and wellbeing, and has made it his focus to raise awareness and get people talking.

Prince Harry, 38, has been open and honest about his own struggles, especially how the tragic death of his beloved mother Princess Diana impacted him and his experience with grief.

The dad-of-two has also spoken about undergoing therapy and has been vocal about the advantages of speaking out about your struggles.

In 2022, he sat down with TV presenter and pal Oprah Winfrey, 68, to discuss his wellbeing journey, with the duo starring in documentary The Me You Can’t See.

In the third episode of The Me You Can't See, Harry was filmed undergoing a therapy method called Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).

EMDR uses eye movements, tones, or taps when someone talks about a traumatic memory. A person would pay attention to the motions or sounds as they recount their experience. The goal of EMDR is to lessen the emotion of the event and change the way a patient thinks about the traumatic memory.

During the session, Harry became aware of his negative feelings towards the city of London, and realised the only time he felt a sense of relief was when he travelled outside of the UK, to places such as Africa.

The 38 year old admitted that he had wanted to try EMDR for a long time, and if it wasn't for the therapy he'd "done over the years" he wouldn't have been open to the idea of the new treatment.

According to Health, Harry has been undergoing therapy for over five years in a bid to improve his mental health and overall wellbeing.

Therapy appears to be a huge part of Harry's life now, and in an extract from his soon-to-be released autobiography, Spare, he shares just how close he is to his therapy.

According to an extract obtained by The Guardian, the prince recalls an alleged altercation with his older brother Prince William, 40, back in 2019. Harry says he called his therapist straight after the incident instead of his wife Meghan Markle.

The altercation happened after an argument and Harry alleges he refused to fight back, prompting his brother to apologise and say: "You don't don’t need to tell Meg about this."

Instead of immediately calling Meghan, Harry told his trusty therapist about it. However, he later had no choice but to tell his wife after she noticed "scrapes and bruises" on his back, according to the extract, which made her "terribly sad".

Harry's autobiography Spare will land on shelves on 10 January.
