I have known Bob Harris since 1993 when we first began working together as colleagues at The Leadership Institute of Seattle. Bob made a strong contribution to that community in his role as a systems counselor to both students and faculty. Since we worked on the same team, I had many opportunities to observe the quality of Bob’s work. He brings the highest level of professionalism and personal integrity, and demonstrates the ability to understand the complex dynamics in small and large groups. Through this work and his 30 years experience working with couples, families and Groups, Bob has honed one professional skill in particular: he is an excellent listener and quiet observer who consistently brings a grounded, authentic presence to his work.

During a very vulnerable time in my life, I was looking for someone with whom to consult regarding both personal issues and issues relating to my work with counseling clients. I had already tried talking with two other people, and had subsequently “fired” them both; the first for seeming quick to judge me, the second for seeming linear and task oriented about client work to the exclusion of tending to the process of how I felt as a result of my work with clients. Hoping the third time would be the charm, I began working with Bob Harris. Hundreds of supervision sessions and 20 years later, I can say from experience that Bob does stellar work. I find him to be steady, kind, respectful, and a safe person with whom to share my innermost hopes, fears and tender issues, whether they be personal or professional. Bob is knowledgeable, and experienced, and uses intuition wisely in our work. He gently challenges me without seeming confrontational. He follows superbly, that is, he accompanies me on my journey without having an agenda about where our discussions will go, supporting me along the way. And Bob laughs, is lighthearted, fun, plus he likes me! He obviouly truly cares about his clients and enjoys his time with them. It is my privilege to recommend Bob Harris to you, a prospective client.

I have known many practitioners, and I can honestly say that it is a blessing to have found Bob. I find myself peaceful, calm and unencumbered after each of my sessions with him. I have made it a habit to book an appointment with him once a month. There is a great deal of education and practice that goes into his work and I appreciate that. Eckhart Tolle the author of 'The Power of Now' asks us to remain at peace and grounded during the stormy events of life. I appreciate Bob giving me tools to practice that.

I've had the most amazing experience with Bob. After my first session, my chronic headache, that I've had for 10 months totally vanished for a full week. His healing touch is helping me immensely on my road to recovery after a car accident. He is very tuned in to subtle energy, and his touch is gentle yet the results are profound! Highly recommend!

I am both grateful and happy to recommend Bob Harris' remote work based upon my own personal experience. I struggle with fibromyalgia pain and the energy depletion associated with chronic fatigue. On my two separate healing sessions with Bob, I noticed my mind became quiet and clear as the session started. I experienced a variety of healing sensations flow through my body as Bob worked with me from over a hundred miles away. Within two days, my pain level had decreased significantly and my energy level went from a 2 to a 8 (10=max. energy). My increased energy lasted for six or more weeks from each healing session. I plan to continue to utilize Bob's healing skills and highly recommend his services to others.

Bob helped me get through a very dark and difficult time in my life. His calm, patient, peaceful, and reassuring presence allowed me to open up, be honest and see myself clearly for the first time. With his support I was led to a level of consciousness and self-awareness that I had never experienced before.
I was stuck for a long time, and through Bob’s gentle and professional guidance, I was able to move forward – out of the darkness and into more light. I can now see and feel my authentic self, who I want to be in this life. I’m enjoying making that happen for myself.
And for that, I am eternally grateful!
