Banning therapeutic support for those who experience homosexual behaviours and feelings but who wish to reduce these because of prioritising marriage to opposite sex partners is the antithesis of a conservative agenda. Such therapeutic support is not offered as a ’treatment’ or as a ‘cure’ any more than experiencing homosexual feelings is a ‘disease’.
The professional mental health bodies in the UK permit therapists to assist clients towards achievement of desired life goals whose attendant risks range from relatively minor (a person nervous at having to make a speech) to potentially serious (a person seeking sex-change surgery) – with one exception: …
Please pray for Dr Mike Davidson, Director of Core Issues Trust (CIT), who is attending a critical meeting of the professional body for Christian counsellors, to appeal against its decision to ban CIT and individual therapists from offering help to men and women with unwanted same-sex attraction.
On the basis of just two BBC radio interviews and no complaints from either his clients or his qualified supervisors, the British Psychodrama Association (BPA) under the direction of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) has this week removed former homosexual Dr Mike Davidson from the psychotherapists’ register of trainee professional membership.
In disallowing witnesses to be cross-examined and by ignoring both controversy about categorical notions of human sexuality (which the Royal College of Psychiatrists recently admitted are not fixed nor immutable,) and inconsistencies in Boris Johnson’s witness statements, Justice Lang has confirmed today that the British establishment is no longer a guardian of freedom of speech nor of conscience.
Homosexuals are not ‘born gay’ according to a recent statement by the Royal College of Psychiatristsi. They now consider, what they previously denied, that the causes are “a combination of biological and postnatal environmental factors.” This is a major admission. It implies that if a child does not encounter such postnatal life experiences, he/she will grow up heterosexual.
Core Issues Trust requests responsible journalists wishing to interrogate the issues relating to its work, to refrain from using the shorthand expression “gay cure” and “conversion therapy” when describing its activities. The Trust does not operate using a “medical” model nor does it see homosexuality as a disease in need of a “cure”. The description is factually wrong and misleading.
Gay pressure group Stonewall has ignored a recent ruling from the High Court by re-running adverts on London buses which violate Transport for London (TfL) guidelines.
Royla College ‘Misled’ Parliament and Church in Science behind ‘Gay Marriage’ and ‘Striking off’ of therapistse’
EVIDENCE submitted to the Government and to the Church of England by the Royal College of Psychiatrists, which has informed their responses to ‘gay marriage’ was seriously flawed, distorting medical science and replacing it with gay ideology. Equally important, the outworking of this ideology is leading to therapists being struck off by their professional bodies for assisting clients who wish to reduce their same-sex attractions.
Judgment to be delivered: 10:00 – TODAY (22 MAR) – Court 22, Royal Courts of Justice – Case number: CO / 7284 / 2012
We are grateful for the court’s recognition that Stonewall Ltd’s intrusive and on-going, multi-city bus poster campaign neither successfully “tackles prejudice” nor is likely to “promote understanding” . However Mrs Justice Lang’s judgement has missed an important opportunity to show sensitivity, understanding and respect for an unfairly marginalised minority who choose to move away from homosexual identity and practice.
The Royal College of Psychiatrists is a highly respected institution which is trusted by the nation, as are the UK’s largest counselling and psychotherapeutic professional bodies, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
