Our mentors are not counsellors. However you may wish to access counselling in addition to or instead of mentoring. Please ask our administrators who will forward you a list of counsellors who have agreed to be referred clients by GP-S. This service will incur a charge to be agreed between the client and the counsellor.

For information please contact us via the online form on the website.

Derwent Rural Counselling Service (DRCS)
Derwent Rural Counselling Service (DRCS) is a not for profit organisation working partnership to deliver the IAPT programme across Derbyshire under the title of Talking Mental Health Derbyshire and as such are the largest provider of psychological therapies in Derbyshire.
Our Counsellors and CBT therapists, who are all BACP accredited, achieve an average of 56% recovery rate against the national NICE target of 50%. EMDR, CFD, psychodynamic, IPT and working with images therapy are also available.
On occasions we are asked, generally by those in professional occupations, to deliver a more discreet service. On the principle of patient choice, DRCS is able to deliver this on a donation basis / non IAPT (suggested donation is about £40 per session). Our offices are located in many parts of Derbyshire and whilst waiting times vary it is highly likely that a suitably experienced therapist can be found, with a waiting list of a matter of days who will work in or out of hours, and in a location to suit our client’s needs.

Counselling Directory
The Counselling Directory is an independent website with a nationwide database of qualified counsellors and psychotherapists. The website also features fact sheets and information on how counselling may be able to support you.
The site is independent of GP-S. Therefore GP-S would not be able to ensure the quality of any information or counselling an individual choses to source from it.
