Wellspring opened 45 years ago, in 1978. Several generations of psychotherapists and counsellors have come, stayed, and later, moved on, leaving their lasting imprint, and contributing to the growth of the present community of therapists, volunteers and trainees.

Wellspring is a centre for psychotherapy and counselling, providing long and short-term therapy to individuals, couples and families and is an organisational member of COSCA and BACP. Wellspring also provides clinical and supervisory services to other organisations.

The team of over twenty part-time therapists holds a common purpose, which is to provide a high standard of professional practice that respects the individual as a unique and whole person. The therapists encompass a wide range of professional expertise and strive to foster an environment in which the variety of approaches are respected and valued. All our therapists meeting every week for an hours or so at 12.15 on a Wednesday at our offices, which enables us to maintain relationships with each other and build upon our strong Wellspring Community ethos.

Wellspring is recognised as a centre of excellence, offering, at reduced cost, high quality therapy.

We are looking for therapists that can provide a minimum of 8 hours a week, both evening and day time hours.

We will host you in our beautiful Georgian terrace just off Leith Walk. Our premises offer a range of pleasant rooms for you to work from, which include art therapy rooms and large space for group therapy to take place, as well as calm, warm spaces for you and your clients to work together. We also have a waiting room and kitchen facilities with free refreshments.

We provide your clients to you, so there is no marketing or looking for clients to support for you to do and our Clinical Managers are always on hand to provide support should you need it, together with our admin team.

Wellspring is a great place to work, where you will be valued and appreciated. We do not restrict our therapists to provide certain types of therapy, as long as you have the necessary training and qualifications, we’d love to hear from you.
