About us

DACS provides one to one counselling to children and young people aged between 8-21yrs of age whose lives have been affected by experiencing domestic abuse (DA).

Counselling can be both short and long term to address the post impact of domestic abuse and collaboratively look to explore aspects of their lives and history by using talking therapy, drawing and sand tray as an example of support.

The approach is a relational model of integrative therapy using aspects of CBT, TA (Transactional Analysis) and Gestalt using the therapeutic relationship as the means of supporting change.
