Whilst these helped, he came to find that the most effective treatment for him was nature. ​

Mr Harkness says: "After horrendously stressful days at work I've gone to a local site for them and switched off, by allowing their bubbly song to wrap me up and absorb my anxieties." ​

All talks include supper, served at 7pm, and talks begin at 7.45pm.
