About Us

Unexpected life lessons from The Boy Who Lived. Every episode, superfan Harriet Morris looks at one character, spell, invention or place from the magical world of Harry Potter (and related works) and asks: what hidden soul-saving teachings are there to help us navigate and dismantle anxiety, depression and the curveballs that life has a habit of throwing at us?As you will see, Winky the house elf, Draco Malfoy and the time turner all have as much to teach us about reclaiming our power as does Harry himself.Harry didn't literally save Harriet's life, but this more than any other work helped her recover from compulsive eating .

How To Stop Feeling Suicidal Using Harry Potter

In this episode, I explain how I used Harry Potter to help a client deal with her suicidal urges. This is all about the power of imagination instead of well-worn clichés that try and fail to appeal to logic. Sharing Harry’s terror and hopelessness then return to Hogwarts allowed Sophie to connect with her desire to live and resilience. There are also 4 questions you can ask yourself to reframe your desire to die.

How To Stop Feeling Suicidal Using Harry Potter

Hagrid - part 1

Hogwart’s favourite half-giant teaches us three important life lessons throughout the course of the seven books. What are they? Loyalty? Being a good father figure? Well, although these are traits that many people think of, I believe they are least interesting for our purposes here. Instead, let’s talk about...

Hagrid - part 1

Crimes of Grindelwald Review

A choc-full-of-spoilers review of the latest Fantastic Beasts installment. I talk about what was great, and what was not so great. In particular: *The theme of belonging and can an isolated outsider ever become a leader? *The surprising symbolism of the niffler stealing Grindelwald’s blood pact trinket *What I think about Queenie’s defection to Grindelwald *Is it right for it to take such a dark turn after Fantastic Beasts?

Should I Go And See The Crimes of Grindelwald?

www.harrypottersavedmylife.com A no-spoilers episode to kick off season 2.I give you a review of the latest Fantastic Beasts film that contains absolutely no major plot giveaways – beyond what your local cinema might have in their description blurb. I talk about what’s good and not so good about The Crimes of Grindelwald so you can decide for yourself. I talk about where I disagree with the criticisms levelled at this movie – and where I think the naysayers are right.

The Time Turner: Neutralising Regret

Wouldn’t we all just love a Time Turner? How fabulous would it be to go back in time and wipe out X, , Y and Z. Sorry, ain’t gonna happen. In this episode, I discuss how JK Rowling’s very interesting limitations on this invention gives us a clue to why we are better off without them (and Harry and co. helpfully smashed the lot in the department of mysteries at the end of book 5 anyway) and how we can neutralise regret instead.

The Time Turner: Neutralising Regret

Voldemort: Dismantle Your Fears

So many of our fears have a very powerful misunderstanding at their core. Find out why so many of us are servants to our fears, instead of brave adventurers who dismantle them at every opportunity. Harry chooses to face Voldemort in the forest – and we too can stand up to our fears…with equally powerful results.

Omnioculars - Reel VS Real Life

Today I look at the significance of omnioculars in the Muggle world. If you have forgotten, they appear at the start of Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire when our hero is watching the Quidditch World Cup: "You can replay action ... slow everything down ... and they flash up a play-by-play breakdown if you need it. Bargain - ten Galleons each." Find out what they mean to us in our life, and how they can help us be happier and more empowered.

Snape - The Dangers of Confirmation Bias

http://harrypottersavedmylife.com/ Today we look at our own tendancy to use events and actions of other people to confirm our pre-existing beliefs through Snape...and indeed Harry. Find out exactly how they are inverted mirror images of each other, a kind of mutually destructive, corrupted yin and yang.
