A new project from Wellspring
Over the last five years Wellspring has been approached by like-minded, community facing charities and churches who see a need for counselling in their communities and want to do something about it. Many Churches and charities have a passion to see people suffering from emotional distress receive hope and support through counselling but feel they lack the confidence or resources to know how to offer this service.
As the need for mental health support continues to grow, with the NHS overwhelmed and private counselling still unaffordable for many Wellspring’s team have felt moved to create a new project, in partnership with churches and charities.
Wellspring Counselling Centres bring together Wellspring’s 20 years of experience in delivering affordable professional counselling services with a church or charity who is in touch with their community and ready to help. Through partnership working we will support a church to set-up, deliver and grow an affordable counselling service based on our own model.
Wellspring Counselling at ShineStStephen's
Our first, at ShineStStephen’s, will open in West Bowling Bradford in Spring 2023 and we are excited to have other churches in Leeds and York interested in partnering with us.
We are also pleased to have two years of advice and training starting in January 2023 from The Cinnamon Incubator. Cinnamon have supported many charities before us to replicate in partnership with the local church and we are pleased to have been chosen as one of their cohort.
