Mental health service provider expands into Louth

Fortis Therapy and Training, a Grimsby-based mental health service provider, has expanded into Louth.

From its new dedicated therapy space in the market town’s Fairfield Enterprise Centre, the award-winning business will provide a range of wellbeing strategy support to private clients, businesses and schools in the East Lindsey and Wider Lincolnshire area.

Alexis Powell-Howard, Psychotherapist and Director of Fortis Therapy and Training, said: “We established Fortis in Grimsby in 2012 to deliver high-quality, accessible therapeutic services in Lincolnshire and beyond.

“In that time, we’ve opened two more therapy rooms in Hull and Scunthorpe, and we’re now preparing to open our fourth space in Louth to meet increasing demand for mental health support.

“It’s a modern, comfortable and relaxing space which is centrally located for those living in the nearby areas, where our therapists can meet with clients of all ages, genders, and circumstances and provide support to organisations who are committed to bettering the mental health of their people.

“We’ve already received enquiries from private clients, schools and businesses in the Louth area, and we are looking for the right associates to join our team.”

As a result of the expansion, the business is looking to recruit several associate therapists from across the county.

It is looking for experienced self-employed therapists and counsellors who use talking therapy as well as creative and CBT modalities to work with individuals, couples, and families.

Not only do they need to be experienced, but applicants must have relevant qualifications and be registered with a professional body. Those interested in applying can download an application form here and send their applications to

Alexis added: “We have a wonderful team of associates who are all so passionate about helping both children, young people and adults with mental health issues. The ideal candidates will be dedicated, highly motivated and passionate about making a difference.”

Fortis Louth is open for sessions now.
