Supporting people with unwanted same-sex attraction and gender confusions
Many people experiencing difficulties in such areas want help in overcoming the feelings. This can be motivated by health concerns, religious beliefs, or simply by preference. Currently these people are being let down and denied access to services except they affirm these unwanted feelings. Many governments are wanting to ban all related counselling or therapy. With the aggressive secular culture that has developed towards anyone who does not want to embrace homosexuality, or transsexual ideology, people are left with nowhere to turn.
The IFTCC was established to help people find the support they are looking for by providing access to “preferred provider” counsellors. These are counsellors who uphold the practice guidelines and ethical statements of the IFTCC, and who are sympathetic to the goals and world-views of those seeking help. They value client autonomy.
We work with experienced practitioners around the world to ensure that people have access to the support they need. We’re here also to help encourage collegiality and supportive supervision networks which encourage transparent, accountable and professional services.More
