Prince Harry says his 'eyes were opened' the moment he started therapy

The Duke of Sussex said he now has an understanding of his “value” and has regained confidence.


Prince Harry said he thought there was “only one way to live” until he started therapy.

The Duke of Sussex, 38, who has been open about his mental health challenges, said he now has an understanding of his “value” and has regained confidence.

He was speaking at a professional coaching and mental health firm BetterUp in San Francisco.

The summit’s website, said its aim was to “immerse the most forward-thinking, fast-scaling business leaders in an environment designed to cultivate innovation, acceleration and co-elevation”.

Harry shared his first-hand experience with personal transformation and bringing positive behaviour change to an organisation at scale.

Harry said: “The moment I started doing therapy, it opened my eyes.

“I was moving through life thinking there was only one way to live and therapy burst that bubble.

“Then, when I found my way to coaching, the next bubble burst, and all of a sudden I realised that now I have perspective and a great understanding of my value.

“I regained confidence that I never thought I had.”

Harry said it was “exciting” to know the human potential of every person in the room and across the globe.

“But we’re also at a point where we actually need to unlock that potential. The only way we can do that is to individually grow ourselves, but also help the people we are responsible for grow as well,” he said.

He added: “If you are going to scale your company, the only way I believe you can do that is to successfully scale yourself and scale your employees at the same time.”
