Welcome to Ripon Trauma Centre

Providing a path to recovery for adults & children

 We are a Community Interest company based at Ripon Community House on Allhallowgate in Ripon, North Yorkshire. We offer trauma-informed education and accredited training to help people living with adverse childhood experiences and the effects of trauma. We also offer some private therapy, self-help classes and therapeutic activities.

How do we work? 

We were set up by independent practitioners in the Harrogate and Rural Districts (HG post code) wanting to give back.  

How do people access our services?

There are two pathways to access our services.

1. If you live within the Harrogate and Rural Districts you can apply for subsidised services on our contact page referral when funding permits (no places are currently available, please check back April 2023).

2. If you live outside the Harrogate and Rural Districts or do not need subsidised services you can access private support at full costs of which all profits go straight back into the company to help subsidised places. Please complete a referral on our contact page.


We do not accept referrals currently from services such as NHS, Crisis Teams, IAPT, CMHT, GP surgeries, Primary or Secondary Care, schools unless an established funding route exists.  Adult full cost therapy (£90 per session) is available and subsidised children’s therapy is available (£25 per session) – please use referral form on contact us page. 

Why do we do what we do? 

We are passionate about raising awareness around the effects of a trauma-focused practice, creating social change, education and other interventions to support people living with adverse childhood experiences and trauma.  We recognise the disparity between treating mental and physical health and the misconceptions around treating trauma.
