Turning Point Talking Therapies workshops

If you can’t find a workshop from the Recovery College offer on a topic that you were specifically interested in, please let us know and we might be able to set one up. You might also find it interesting to explore the free workshops available from our partner Turning Point Talking Therapies (please note that workshops from Turning Point are only available to those who are registered with a GP in the Wakefield district and may not be co-produced/co-facilitated by those with lived experiences).

If you like the sound of any of the below workshops, you won’t need to book with the Recovery College and instead will need to book directly with Turning Point online here. If you would prefer to contact the service directly to secure your place on a workshop, please call 01924 234860 or email wakefield.talking@turning-point.co.uk.

Wellbeing Workshops

Turning Point Talking Therapies workshops are delivered by qualified therapists and follow evidence-based treatment (this means they are proven to work and NHS recommended!).

They are informal ‘talks’ to provide you with more information about common mental health problems and filled with techniques to help manage these. There is no pressure to share personal experiences, you can just come along and learn, however, their will be opportunity for you to ask questions or share if you choose to do so. They will also let you know more about further support and resources available to you.

For many, these workshops are the best place to start experiencing help with your mental wellbeing. The workshops are designed to help you learn useful coping strategies, which you can put into action to improve the areas of your life which are impacting on your mood.

You can attend as many workshops as you feel would be useful, although Turning Point do recommend leaving a break of a few weeks between each one. This is so you can put in place the learning from each session, between sessions.

It is ok to be shy and just listen, and there is no pressure to disclose any personal or difficult information.

All of Turning Point’s workshops are funded by the NHS so all you need to do is sign up.
