We all experience times when life seems unmanageable. Counselling offers the space and time needed to explore the important issues. Things like: loneliness, anxiety, family breakdown, depression, relationships, confidence, bereavement, abuse, self-esteem, obsession, anger, fear, addiction or anything else that may be troubling you.

What is counselling?

  • A confidential safe space to be listened to
  • A space to explore issues and feelings with a person who neither judges nor offers advice
  • You the client are the expert on yourself and the counsellor’s role is to help you find your own inner strengths.
  • There may be some exploration of early relationships to discover how you learned to relate to others, and deal with issues. This helps you to decide what you want to keep the same and what needs to change.
  • Most of our counsellors are person-centred, relational or integrative, although we have some Gestalt and CBT counsellors. Whatever approach the counsellor uses, client autonomy is the ultimate aim; for you the client to make your own choices and put them into action.

Noah’s Ark Centre is an organisational member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). All our counsellors are members of the BACP and/or another professional body (e.g. UKCP, HCPC, NCS),have DBS checks, have good references and regular supervision to ensure the highest quality of counselling practice.

We offer medium to long term counselling at Noah’s Ark Centre, and short to medium term counselling at our outreach centres at Mixenden and Hebden Bridge.

What some of our clients have said about Noah’s Ark:

  • “Noah’s Ark helped me to face my fears and deal with my problems. Would recommend counselling to anyone who feels that their problems have become too great to deal with alone.”
  • “Without the support I have received over the last few years from Noah’s Ark, I don’t think I would be here today to write this. You have helped me crawl out of a deep, dark place and time and given me the strength to face my demons.”
  • “It has been a great help to know I have somewhere I can go and feel safe and can talk openly about how I feel to someone I have complete trust in..”
