Former homosexual persecuted by the British Psychodrama Association

The following excerpts are from the report “Ex-Gay Christian Counsellor hounded out by psychotherapist associations” from the Christian Concern website: “The British Psychodrama Association (BPA) has this week removed former homosexual Dr. Mike Davidson from the psychotherapists’ register of trainee professional membership under the direction of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). The decision was made on the basis of just two BBC radio interviews and no complaints from either his clients or his qualified supervisors.”

“Dr Davidson specialises in counselling those who consider themselves troubled by feelings of same-sex attraction as he himself has been in the past. He has counselled without professional objection for six years and is recognised as an intelligent, empathetic and caring therapist. He has recently become a target for gay activists.”

“But now his professional bodies have hounded him out too. Directly following two BBC radio interviews in January 2012 in which he carefully explained his evidence-backed opinions, he was peremptorily notified by email from the chair of BPA Jonathan Salisbury that, without right of explanation or defence, his trainee membership was revoked with immediate effect pending investigation. Dr Davidson could no longer practice as a UKCP-approved trainee psychotherapist.”

… “’This has a sinister Orwellian ring to it and denies clients the right to shape their own sexual preferences,’ said Mr [Dermot] O’Callaghan. … ‘Clearly the freedom to change which was celebrated in 2004 is now forbidden in 2013.’”

“’This bodes ill for the significant number of people who are troubled with their same-sex attraction and who want help,’ said Mr O’Callaghan. ‘I urge the general public – and particularly medical doctors – to read the Ethical Principles for themselves to see how bad they are. The rubber is hitting the road now, and Mike’s professional life has been ruined by ideology even though he has done nothing wrong.'”
