Working with sex offenders and paedophiles
The Specialist Treatment Organisation for the Prevention of Sexual Offending (StopSO) aims to reduce sexual offending by offering therapy to the (potential and actual) perpetrators in order to prevent harm, and thus protect society.
StopSO connects clients asking for help with a specially trained, experienced psychotherapist (or counsellor) who is geographically close. This service is available to anyone who feels at risk of committing a sexual offence, as well as those who have already committed a sexual offence. StopSO also offers therapy to the family members of sexual offenders.
Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist Michael Stock from StopSO tells us about his approach to working with sex offenders and paedophiles.
