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

I have found DAPL helpful as I have been able to share things that are driving me bananas – somebody to listen to me, somebody to talk to. I think counselling is a bit like a jigsaw, putting it all back, feels like I'm maybe missing a few bits but hopefully I'll find them.
