Room Hire at DAA

DAA hires counselling rooms at Seaforth House. Rooms are usually hired on an ongoing basis on a specified day and time. We cannot guarantee that others will be using the building at the times you require, so you should only see clients whom you feel safe seeing on your own. You are welcome to use our WC facilities and kitchen whilst you are using the building.

Our counselling rooms are welcoming and comfortable and we have received positive feedback from those who are currently or have hired rooms at Seaforth House.

All those who wish to hire rooms at DAA must complete an application form (below) and attend an interview. We also need to see documentation to evidence your qualifying diploma, your membership of a professional body, and your professional indemnity insurance. We also need to take up a reference.

Please contact DAA for more information about room hire and to check current availability, or complete and send an application form, indicating your preferred time slot.
