One in four of us experience mental health problems at some time in our lives.

Depression is one of the commonest reasons for consulting a GP in the UK.

While medication has its place, it's no quick fix and many patients benefit more from "talking therapies".

In Derbyshire we're fortunate in being able to access Psychological Therapies such as Counselling, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy and Group Therapy.

These services are free and the Therapies are approved by NICE.

Patients can be referred to these services by the GP or Practice Nurse or they can now self-refer.

The following providers offer psychological therapies in our area.
