Mission Statement

Nature and Nurture aims to offer a creative, innovative and timely therapeutic resource to children and young people suffering emotional distress and mental health problems.

Our aim is to enable the clients of this project to enjoy improved psychological health and emotional wellbeing, be able to lead happier and more fulfilling lives and reach their potential.

This will be achieved by:

  • Combining the most effective existing evidence-based psychological therapies with a range of innovative approaches to provide a unique, holistic service.
  • Offering these therapies in a natural, non-clinical, relaxed environment in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, allowing easy access to nature.
  • Employing warm, highly qualified and experienced practitioners to deliver the various therapies on offer.
  • Monitoring and evaluating our service to ensure the highest possible standards of care.
