DACAP is a group of registered and accredited counsellors and psychotherapists in Dorset.

Welcome to the Dorset Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (DACAP) Website


DACAP is changing!

On 1st April 2019 we will become South West Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (SWACP) and launch a new website: www.swacp.co.uk.

There will be a simple on-line membership process. You will be able to join from only £25 as an associate member and receive a 25% discount on workshops and events. Therapists who are registered with a professional body will be able to apply as a Registered Member for an additional £20 and be permitted to advertise in our ‘Find a Therapist’ directory.

We hope you will decide to join us. If you wish to register your interest, please go to www.swacp.co.uk and complete the contact form.

Best Wishes,

Phil Martin
