Refresh is a restorative spell, much like cure light/serious/critical and heal. It is more the domain of clerics than mages.

If a class paths is lacking a skill, it is likely intended as part of the tradeoff of that path. Everyone isn't supposed to get every skill. Looking at your path, you chose witch: Your specific tradeoff was you gave up basic cleric restorative spells for debuffs.

Now for a suggestion that is both interesting/novel, and would "address" your core complaint:

Spell idea (probably for witch, but wizard could get it as well):
enfeeblement - saps your opponent of stamina and partially restores your own. It deals X stamina dmg and restores 0.75 * X to the caster. Add a synergy with impede movement and fatigue. Could even add a lingering debuff that add a Y% increase to the victims stamina usage and restores the caster's by that amount. Throw on a balanced sp and reagent cost.

Alternatively, wizard's energy drain could do something similar, the st damage could be "leeching" and restore the casters.

I'm not advocating either of these as I think it is intended that both wizards and witches lack stamina restorative options. However, this is an example of a skill suggestion that likely would at least be considered. Requests of the form "Class X doesn't get skill Y, {why can't they have||please give them} Y." are pretty much non-starters.

wizard and witch neither need any more help in having more things or becoming more powerful than the other choices in their respective classes.

Most mages and clerics are fairly well balanced.

To be honest, most classes are balanced. Although some are more balanced than others.

Wizard really should not get a cleric spell.

This is just like when I'm pouring a glass of milk and the top layer comes out more homogenized than the rest.
