This weekend the General Synod of the Church of England is set to debate a motion which condemns conversion therapy.
Janet Weisz, Chief Executive of the UK Council for Psychotherapy said:
“We have long held that conversion therapy is unethical, potentially harmful and not supported by evidence.
“It is great that the General Synod is debating this issue – and very much hope that they will endorse the view that conversion therapy has no place in the modern world.
“We will be watching developments closely and with great interest.”
