Dr. Harris qualified as a medical doctor in 1984 and as a psychiatrist in 1990.  He then undertook further training in child and adolescent psychiatry and in psychotherapy.  He was appointed Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist in Bournemouth in 1996 and obtained membership of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy in 1998.

He has had a combined practice of child psychiatry and adult and child psychotherapy for the last 18 years.  From 2002 till 2013 he was Consultant to the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service on Guernsey, Channel Islands, while continuing his private practice based near Christchurch on the edge of the New Forest.

His psychotherapy training has helped him develop both excellent listening skills, and a variety of ways of helping his patients with their symptoms; and to make the changes that they and their families wish for.

He can help with the wide range of psychological, emotional and behavioural problems that children and their families might experience.  He is able to meet and advise the parents, carers and other important people in the lives of children who are referred to him.
