Harriet Sims Therapy
My name is Harriet (she/her) and I am from New Zealand. I grew up in Auckland and have since travelled the world meeting people and experiencing many different ways of life.
For the past 12 years I have been working with young people, adults and their families to support them with physical and mental health challenges. I provide mental health support and treatment in person and via Zoom.
I bring a wide range of experience and I can't wait to share that with you.
I take a collaborative, transparent approach focused on your goals. It is really important to me to work alongside you to establish a safe space to explore your difficulties. I am compassionate, non-judgmental and we will work at your pace.
I have worked with a wide range of people facing a wide variety of challenges. In particular I have experience working with people experiencing anxiety, low mood, depression, life transitions, PTSD and eating disorders.
I also have experience working alongside, and supporting people who are exploring their gender and sexuality.
I use a range of models of treatment including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Skills (DBT), DBT Prolonged Exposure (DBTPE), Family Therapy Techniques, Gottman Couples Therapy and specific treatment for Anorexia Nervosa.
My aim as a Registered Nurse & Therapist is to help you identify areas in your life and in your thinking that may be standing in your way & support you to make changes. I can help you to reflect and understand your patterns of behaviour and relationships.
My services always include a comprehensive assessment and feedback. This is a really important starting point so that we can both be on the same page and start with as much information as possible. From there I want to help you identify your most important goals so we can work together to make changes.
I like to work in creative and adaptable ways. This means I understand there is no one size fits all approach. You are the leader of your recovery and I want to support you in the way that makes most sense for you.
I am currently fully booked and I do not have any waitlist availablility.
I have some short term availability to support people with gender identity exploration.
