Domestic Abuse Counselling Service (DACS)

Counselling provided by trained DACS volunteers will support victims of abuse to free themselves from violence. Based in Nuneaton since March 2006 but also operating from offices in Rugby, Stratford-upon-Avon and Royal Leamington Spa, DACS provides initial therapy courses that run 12 weeks but often last longer to support victims to rebuild their lives.

Who can call The Domestic Abuse Counselling Service?

Women who have experienced past or present domestic abuse, who have witnessed abuse as a child and find the experience has impacted on their adult intimate relationships, male victims of domestic abuse, same sex relationship couples and professionals supporting women and children experiencing past or present domestic abuse can all contact DACS.

Further contact details for DACS can be found within the Service Directory.

DACS is committed to the protection of women and children by providing therapy for victims and perpetrators of abuse to enable them to make the changes they need to make in their life.  Leaving an abusive relationship brings its own complications of sole parenting and child contact issues to name just a few.  DACS therapy helps towards building the 'emotional muscle' needed to maintain the changes the victim has made in their life to provide them and their children with a safer future, and also the self-awareness for perpetrators of abuse to acknowledge the impact their behaviour has had on their children with the aim of building safer relationships.
