Community Work

Our Work In The Community

On 1st January 2024 we combined 2 companies: Absolute Specialists Ltd and Absolute Specialists Wellbeing to form The Walters Method Ltd (TWM). 

TWM is a company limited by guarantee. This means that any profit we make we give back to the community by offering reduced rates for people who cannot afford to pay in full for our services.

We continue to receive and adninister grant funding that allows us to provide workshops and individual sessions for people in acute emotional distress such as PTSD, self-harming, suicidal thoughts, anxiety and depression.

STOP PRESS!!

We have just been awarded £20K from the West Yorkshire Mayor’s Safer Communities Fund to support survivors of violent crime such as domestic abuse. Our focus is on young women – but we won’t turn anyone away so long as funds last.

Working with Young People

We work with young people (aged 16-25) in schools, colleges and other institutions across South and West Yorkshire. Our workshops are aimed to foster and improve:

  • Emotional intelligence.
  • Resilience.
  • Confidence.
  • A sense of personal values and responsibility.
  • Kindness.

We find that many young adults struggle with stress, anxiety and depression. Whether these conditions are rooted in family or social problems, around exam stress or the thought of leaving home; we can work with young adults to help them to cope with the struggles of daily life.

Our workshops provide tools to help young people respond positively to the many challenges they face. We listen compassionately and without judgement, creating an environment that promotes openness and positivity, allowing them to feel heard and understood. These sessions can be followed by personalised one-to-one sessions for people with more complex needs.

We coach young people to develop skills that will help them to combat stress and anxiety, be self-assured and guided by clear personal values throughout their lives.

 

Working with Adults 

TWM receive referrals through charities, public sector organisations and housing associations. Starting with individuals, we aim to improve the wellbeing of communities.

There are many times in peoples’ lives where there is a need for additional support. Whether suffering from health problems (or caring for somebody who is) or struggling with life changes; our practitioners will guide towards a more positive way of thinking.

We offer emotional support for people navigating a variety of difficult situations, such as:

  • Unemployment.
  • Debt/financial difficulties.
  • Divorce/separation.
  • Physical ill health.
  • Caring for a relative or friend.
  • Homelessness.
  • Addiction.
  • Adoption/fostering.

All of these experiences can have a detrimental effect on emotioanl health. We facilitate group workshops which provide practical tools and techniques that will help people to see the world in a more positive light and regain their confidence.

Our fully-trained TWM practitioners deliver sessions that are designed to give individuals the tools and techniques to improve their self-esteem, develop confidence and increase resilience.
