Derwent Rural Counselling Service

We’re a charity committed to providing professional, confidential and empathetic therapy.

Recovery, on your terms

If you are considering speaking to someone about how you are feeling, we have a team of highly qualified and experienced therapists ready to help you. You do not have to cope alone. We can help you decide on the right choice of therapy for you or offer advice if you are worried about a friend, colleague or loved one.

We can help support businesses, schools and other educational establishments through our programme of preventative workshops. These focus on early identification of Mental Health difficulties amongst staff or students and overcoming stigma.  A culture of well-being in the work place or learning environment is proven to have a positive impact on productivity and performance.

Mental Health concerns impact 1 in 4 adults and 1 in 10 children every year.

Access to effective care and methods of prevention are essential.



With mental health concerns affecting as many as one in four adults and one in ten children, access to effective care is vital.


Be a part of the healing process. Staying informed and active is hugely beneficial when promoting positive mental health in businesses and schools.
