Help from the Hummingbird Project

Here at the Hummingbird Project, we work with individual clients through our 1-2-1 recovery mentoring service. We offer these sessions through a number of referral agents or privately, where clients connect with us directly. We aim to see clients within one to two weeks and will work with you to move you forward according to your goals. Sessions follow our unique model co-created with people just like you… and it works!

1-2-1 Recovery Mentoring

What to these sessions do?

These sessions are to give one to one, person centred recovery and resilience skills for the individual’s emotional wellbeing. Using The Hummingbird Project’s unique 3U-Model© of working, the Hummingbird Mentor will:

  • Gain an understanding of the client’s circumstances, goals and barriers that they are facing.
  • Unlock the client’s strengths, support options, coping strategies and ability to co-produce action plans to achieve their goals.
  • Uplift the client to move forward with confidence and gain control and responsibility for their own emotional wellbeing, with stronger resilience to cope with difficulties or stressors in the future.
  • If appropriate, the sessions will include collaborative meetings with the referral party to engage them in co-creating strategies with the client.

Who is it suitable for?

These sessions are suitable for anyone who is having difficulty coping with their emotional health, which is having an impact on their ability to manage their circumstances e.g. work, quality of life, social functioning. This could be either an employee or client that requires support to move forward with confidence because of their emotional health.
