Prince Harry Applauded for ‘Volunteering’ to Undergo On-Camera TherapyMay 24, 2021
The Duke of Sussex has been commended for his transparency as he ‘volunteered’ for TV therapy session while tackling mental health issues on his docuseries ‘The Me You Can’t See’.
AceShowbiz –Prince Harry “volunteered” to shoot an on-camera therapy session for his new mental health docuseries “The Me You Can’t See“.
The British royal agreed to be filmed as he underwent professional treatment for the Apple TV+ show, which he co-hosted and co-produced with Oprah Winfrey, and Dawn Porter – who co-directed the series with Asif Kapadia – has revealed he was happy to open up about his wellness journey.
Speaking about the docuseries, Dawn shared, “Asif Kapadia was working really closely with Harry, and it was really interesting because we were working on the series for so long that we knew a lot about what Prince Harry was doing to maintain his mental wellness.”
“And when you have Oprah Winfrey and the best advisers on the planet, you get access to a lot of the best research and the best medicine.”
Harry approached the series in an open-minded way, according to Dawn, who revealed he was happy to share his personal experiences with the viewers.
She told Town & Country magazine, “Harry, he volunteered.”
“He was game for trying something. And we thought well, we have the opportunity to film this (therapy) and maybe this is something that will work for some people, maybe it won’t, but the idea is that you don’t tick a box and you’re done, mental wellness is an ongoing pursuit.”
Dawn admitted that Harry’s transparency made it much easier to create the series.
She said, “You have to continue to try new things and to push yourself, and his volunteering to try something was a great way to emphasise and underscore that point.”
During the show, Harry admitted his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, encouraged him to pursue therapy more seriously a few years ago.
He shared, “It was meeting and being with Meghan, I knew that if I didn’t do therapy and fix myself, that I was going to lose this woman who I could see spending the rest of my life with.”
