In addition, DAPL’s staff are supported by a number of sessional counsellors as well as volunteers and placements.

I have observed the work of DAPL over a number of years and consistency – developing the ‘therapeutic relationship’, if you like – is something that DAPL staff care passionately about and do extremely well.
