DABS Counselling

~It has become apparent that some callers to the DABS Pathfinder Helpline are unable to access the counselling they need and as a response to this DABS offers its own 'In-House' counselling as an alternative:

~A condensed course of therapy will be offered by the DABS Counsellor ~ subject to their assessment with you.

~This format is most suitable for victims and survivors of abuse and sexual violence.

~Depending on the circumstances and assessment, it is usual to start with a short number of consecutive days to address the main issues ~ then to follow up later with additional days and so on until the work is complete.

~All DABS counsellors will be members of BACP or UKCP and will have met our terms and conditions.
