Mental health doesn't clock off at 5pm so I offer sessions in the late afternoon and evening as well as the weekends. I hope that as my practice grows I will be able to offer day time appointments.
Please feel free to contact me and we can discuss your needs.
About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Julie and welcome to Hummingbird lodge counselling.
Life can be challenging and tough at times, your days may feel overwhelming and you may feel isolated within your own world. You have taken the first step by looking for someone to talk to.
I have been a client; I understand that you need to feel safe and held in a world where there is empathy. Where you feel that someone is listening to you without any judgement and your voice is being heard.
You may not be aware of this but you are in fact own expert, your journey is about gaining an awareness of you and enabling confidence. Together we will reflect on your feelings, valves and your perception on life.
I have been a volunteer with Herts Mind Network since 2018 and I remained with them after I qualifying as a humanistic counsellor with a bias towards the Person-centred approach in early 2019.
In early 2022 I started IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) counselling.
This may feel like a massive step but talking to someone is a step in the right direction.
I'm a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and follow their code of ethics and I am working towards accredited status.
I am fully insured, hold a enhanced DBS and I am registered with the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office).
