About Us

Our mission

Wellspring wants everyone who needs it to be able to access high-quality psychotherapy and counselling regardless of their background and ability to pay. 

Wellspring’s mission is to provide compassionate and evidence-based therapy services to people who are struggling with mental health challenges. We believe that everyone has the ability to heal and grow, and we are committed to creating a safe and supportive space where our clients can explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Our goal is to help our clients develop the skills and insights they need to overcome their challenges, build stronger relationships, and live more fulfilling lives. We are dedicated to treating all of our clients with respect, empathy, and cultural sensitivity, and we strive to create a collaborative and empowering therapeutic relationship with each of our clients

How we help

Wellspring is a charity that, through a deep sense of care, has become a leading centre with the highest standards. The professional therapists that operate under the Wellspring name are independent consultants who come together with us to make it easy to find and afford the right help for you.

Why we started

We were set up over four decades ago by a university chaplain, Fr Marcus Lefebure and the visionary Dr Winifred Rushforth – our spiritual leader. Embracing their spirit, we’ve helped over 7,000 people live better lives through improving their mental health and well-being.

Our Team

Bringing experts together: Today, the core Wellspring staff organises, enables and helps our independent therapists to work with people like you. Our small, but dedicated team include Clinical Managers, our Business Manager and our Admin team.

We are supported by a knowledgeable and hard-working Board who oversee the governance of Wellspring.
