Following a year-long undercover investigation by a reporter, the British Medical Association has determined that "gay conversion therapy" is not therapy, is more harmful to patients than helpful, and should be banned.
Journalist Patrick Strudwick posed as a patient seeking "gay conversion therapy" or "reparative therapy" for a year. In his report on his experience, he described what amounted to psychological torture… [from] … two conversion therapists.
Both of these "therapists" were licensed and receiving funds via the NHS. Strudwick learned that they use methods created by Joseph Nicolosi, the Christian Evangelical American founder of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality.
