Mike Davidson

Dr Mike Davidson, a Christian therapist and director of Core Issues Trust, is challenging seven UK counselling and psychotherapy bodies over the legality of their support for the Memorandum of Understanding on Conversion Therapy.

Christian therapist and counsellor Dr Mike Davidson has been offering support to those wanting to move away from unwanted sexual attractions for decades, and over the course of his work, has seen over 700 individuals address their unwanted sexual attractions, with many experiencing change in identity, behaviours and attractions. Yet, as a result of his work and Christian beliefs, Mike has been barred from finishing his training at the London Centre for Psychodrama and the British Psychodrama Association.

Mike is now challenging the legality of the Memorandum of Understanding on Conversion Therapy, which has been signed by 20 UK counselling and psychotherapy bodies, because it acts as a bar for Christian counsellors to offer real help and support to those wishing to move away from unwanted sexual attractions.

Dr Davidson commented: “The Memorandum of Understanding on Conversion Therapy in the UK has created a de facto ban on therapeutic choice for those seeking help for undesired same- sex attractions. This is a political document; its writers are illusive and those who manage it provide no opportunity for public or professional scrutiny. By the MoU, the anti-therapy lobby has captured UK mental health bodies to the point that only one viewpoint is acceptable.

“Thousands of persons who are both-sex attracted are being denied the opportunity to work towards their goal of choice. We call on the end to ideologies represented by the MOU that masquerade as science, to be made accountable.”
