Dr Russ Harris

Medical Practitioner, Psychotherapist, Executive Coach


Russ Harris, author of the international best-selling self-help book 'The Happiness Trap', is a world-renowned trainer of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). Russ's background is in medicine. As a GP he became increasingly interested in the psychological aspects of health and wellbeing, and increasingly disenchanted with writing prescriptions. Ultimately this interest led to a total career change. He now works in two different, yet complementary roles - as a therapist and as a coach - with over 12,000 hours of one-on-one sessions under his belt.


Since 2005, Russ has provided ACT training for over 15,000 Australian therapists, coaches, counsellors, doctors, and other health professionals. He has authored two ACT textbooks (including ACT Made Simple), and four ACT-based self-help books (including The Reality Slap). He has also been co-author of a further two self-help books. The Happiness Trap, is now the most widely-translated ACT book in the world.

Russ bases his training on three core values: simplicity, clarity, and having fun. His ACT workshops are brief, powerful, cost-effective and life-enhancing. Participants regularly report not only major improvements in their therapy and/or coaching, but also in their personal lives and feedback praises his ability to make complex ideas seem very simple.
