Wellspring Therapy & Training

11 Jan 2021 by Laura Brett

Hello!  My name is Laura Brett and I have recently joined the team at Wellspring Therapy & Training as Head of Fundraising & Promotion.  It’s been great getting to know some of you over the last few months at Chamber but I wanted to write and personally introduce myself and the charity.

Founded in 2003, Wellspring’s mission is to restore hope, develop resilience, and facilitate positive change in the lives of people facing mental health problems and psychological distress. We achieve this by providing psychological support and professional mental health counselling for adults, young people and children, from North Yorkshire, designed around the requirements of each individual person, delivered by our team of highly experienced professional and volunteer counsellors.

Our charity is motivated by Christian values but offers its services to all regardless of faith, gender, sexual orientation, or cultural background. We are passionate about seeing people move from a place of darkness and distress to freedom and hope.

What makes Wellspring unique is that we offer high quality, long-term professional counselling to adults and children over 4 years old.  This can sometimes be at a heavily subsidised price to suit the financial situation of each individual client and can be as little as £5 per session.

If a client is able to contribute £45 for their weekly session, that qualifies them for our Associate Counsellor Service (ACS). The client would be seen as soon as possible by one of our associate counsellors.   There is no queue jumping and people on our affordable waiting list are not waiting longer, as all associate counselling slots are offered by counsellors in addition.  We also have specific ACS contracts with businesses and organisations if that is of interest to you.

If you or a member of your staff, family or friends are needing our support, particularly at this difficult time, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Wishing you all the very best for your business, health and happiness as we enter a somewhat unpredictable and challenging 2021.

With every blessing,

Laura
