The Silent Scandal of Straight to Gay Therapy

With the new Private Members Bill "Counsellors and Psychotherapy (Regulation) Bill" a number of Members of Parliament want to ban all therapy that attempts to help someone overcome unwanted homosexual feelings. This is in line with the "ethical" statements of the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP), the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the British Psychological Society (BPS) - ethical statements written, in the main, by active homosexuals and without proper reference to the various scientific papers. This leaves people with unwanted homosexual feelings one theraputic option - help to accept these feelings and to enter the gay lifestyle. This lack of options is being cheered by the gay press, counsellors and psychotherapists across the UK. But personal experience shows that this option is no more than a therauptic attempt to make straight people gay. Not only this, the BACP, UKCP, BPS, the American Psychological Association, the Royal College of Psychiatrists and other mental health bodies are actively promoting a therapy that is both harmful and unethical.  (more...)
