A Personal Approach To Mental Healthcare

Welcome to Derwent Rural Counselling Service. We are a mental health charity with numerous service centres in Derbyshire. 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. Predominantly we work with Talking Mental Health Derbyshire offering funded psychological therapies who have asked for help with their mental health. DRCS removes the stigma attached to talking about mental health. We break down the barriers for those seeking treatment and offer guidance, relief and a friendly face. Our therapists never criticise, pass judgement, or provide unrealistic advice: sometimes all that is needed is a friendly face and someone who’ll listen.

DRCS has over 60 therapists and is an established provider of ‘talking therapies’ in Derbyshire. We are proud of our ability to engage with every one of our clients and help them plan a personalised path to wellness and well-being.

What We Do

Taking care of your mental health is vital. That is why we offer professional and confidential therapy to everyone who we are able to help. We are also able to guide and signpost you to those organisations who may be better suited in meeting your needs.

In addition, we provide practical, educational workshops within schools and businesses which help provide the skills required to build happy and healthy communities. We are partnered with Derbyshire Healthcare Foundation Trust and operate as a service provider within Talking Mental Health Derbyshire, as well as being a stand alone organisation offering access to a donation based service.

We understand that some individuals would like a more personal and individual approach to engaging with professionals who can support them with wellness and well-being. We are a registered charity, so as well as helping people access NHS funded talking therapies, we also offer personal support as a mental health charity. We depend on donations to fund our therapies and workshops. We depend on donations to fund our therapies and workshops. We are always grateful when a client decides to help support us through donating.
