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 Wakefield and 5 Towns District GP 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.
