Mental Health for the Rare Disease Community

Rareminds is the first specialist, non profit, rare disease counselling and psychotherapy service in the UK (and possibly globally).  Our team has been providing online counselling and wellbeing services for rare disease charities since 2014.

Our vision is that the psychological and emotional aspects of living with a rare condition are recognised as an integral part of rare disease care, with access to specialist quality services for all.

Our mission is to provide affordable, timely access to highly specialised counselling for the rare disease community, and campaign for recognition of the importance of specialist mental health support by informing policy, practice and promoting standards of excellence.

All Rareminds therapists are fully trained and experienced counsellors, psychotherapists or psychologists accredited (or in the latter stages of working towards accreditation) with a recognised Professional Body.  All our counsellors have also completed a BACP approved training in offering Online Counselling, and Rareminds innovative.
