​​​​​​​​​Turtleback (Ilkeston) offers an exciting new development in offering counselling and Psychotherapy at an affordable price. This is with qualified counsellors who are extending their training.

It is recognised that many people may not feel able to wait for extended periods of time to access IAPT services. We offer interim counselling whilst waiting for other services or private therapy that is not time limited.

Clients have choice over whether they engage in short-term or long-term counselling and can choose to end sessions at any point.


Turtleback Counselling (Ilkeston) recognises that some clients may find it very expensive to access private counselling and offers the opportunity to work with level 7 Counsellors who are extending their qualifications to Masters Level in Integrative counselling & Psychotherapy at  University. This is a BACP accredited course. Counsellors hold appropriate insurance and are DBS checked.  Counsellors all receive regular supervision and have regular case management sessions with the Practice Manager/Clinical Lead.

These sessions are charged at £30 for a 50 minute session.

Discounts may be available and such enquiries should be made before assessment.

All other sessions with the Counselling Lead and Service Manager, Theresa Hulme are charged at £45 per hour.


An initial assessment session with the manager usually takes place within a week of contacting the service either by telephone or an online appointment. Following this the service aims to provide a first appointment within 7 days of this assessment. This has a charge of £20.


The building has a lift and disabled toilet so that it can be easily accessed by all. There is easy parking on the street, but a disabled parking space is shared by the offices
