This figure does not account for the huge emotional and psychological costs to the victim, their families and friends, and the families and friends of the person who committed the offence. Thus, prevention is critical to reducing sexual abuse and making society a safer place.
Our service offers non-judgemental, an individualised approach, and is conducted on a one-to-one basis with an experienced psychologist. When people have sexual thoughts that could lead to an offence there are often other problems happening in their lives so we will aim to help you identify and manage these. We treat the whole person – you are not just your unwanted desires.
Appointments are available in the evenings or at weekends. The number and frequency of the sessions will be decided with your therapist but on average clients will have between 8-30 sessions and see a therapist once a week.
The specific aims of treatment will be different for every client, but broadly the treatment will help clients to recognise the origins of their unwanted sexual thoughts and feelings, teach skills for managing these with the ultimate aim of moving on to have a rewarding and offence free life.
We use a compassionate approach to treatment in order to build a positive working relationship and to help support you to make changes.
