Daniel Harrison



I offer short and long term psychotherapy to individuals and couples. I provide a space to talk and explore your experiences and concerns in a safe and confidential manner. My aim is to assist people to work through emotional difficulties, improve relationships and develop positive change.


I specialise in:

  • relationship issues
  • separation
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • stress
  • addictions (including pornography and gaming)
  • identity issues
  • men’s issues
  • exercise (and mindful eating)
  • religious issues
  • organisational/employment issues


Counselling/Therapy Services

My approach to therapy is collaborative and compassionate. Psychotherapy is a mutual process, where a therapist acts as a pilot for navigating what is brought by the client. Within this stance, we can help further understand and address the concerns that led you here, likely in search of some relief from the way you are currently feeling. Together we will work to reduce current stress and facilitate growth. When we gain a better understanding of ourselves, we can live more authentically and start utilising the untapped strengths that lie within us. It is my job to listen carefully and guide you to this better understanding what has shaped you.


Counselling/Therapy Approach

I work from a psychodynamic psychotherapy base. I also utilise Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and draw on theories of development and attachment. I believe effective psychotherapy needs to be tailored to the individual and address all sources of health.


Background and Experience

I have several years experience working in mental health, alongside people with long standing mental illness and addictions within specialist treatment rehabilitation services. I have also spent time working with students in tertiary institutes and other community agencies. My recent years have been working closely with organisations, whether individual or in group settings presenting or running workshops. I now work solely in private practice.
