About RPS


Ruby Psychological Services, Derbyshire is run by Dr Nichola Marchant, Clinical Psychologist, (DClinPsy, CPsychol.) Dr Marchant is HCPC (PYL26017) registered and fully insured to practice. She has been working with clients experiencing emotional and mental health difficulties since 2000. Dr Marchant has worked in a variety of services within the NHS, Social Services and Independent Sector including specialist substance misuse services and female in-patient services. Dr Marchant has a particular interest in working with clients who have experienced trauma and those who have sexual difficulties. 

RPS offer therapy for individuals and couples  who experience all levels of emotional and mental health difficulties. We specialise in working with people who are experiencing difficulties in relationships (often as a result of adverse experiences in childhood) and those who find themselves repeating unhelpful life patterns. We focus on helping people to understand their distress in the context of their life experiences rather than focusing on diagnosis and labels.


Based in Crich, Derbyshire, RPS offer a variety of psychological therapies and interventions tailored to the needs of the individual or couple seeking support. Sessions are also available via telephone and video calls meaning that therapy is accessible wherever you are. Dr Marchant strongly believes that at the root of all successful therapy is a collaborative and containing therapeutic relationship. RPS can offer individual or group therapy for people of all ages. Therapy may focus on making sense of early experiences with the aim of reducing the repetition of unhelpful life patterns or may focus on learning skills to cope in the here and now.


Clinical Psychologists work in many different ways. RPS offer an integrative model of therapy taking aspects of psychological models such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, EMDR, Schema Focused Therapy. Somatic Trauma Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy.
