When we decide to work on our unwanted sexual and emotional issues, we need a plan. In this session Mike Davidson considers some basic needs in working with a counsellor. He outlines the next of this 10-session series, beginning Thursday 22nd April happening Wednesdays, 12.00 BST to 24 June, 2020.
Mike Davidson considers the role of "Attachment Hunger" in toxic relationships leading to addiction to a person. How do we get free? Are there things we can do to help ourselves so that it doesn't keep happening? How does this help us to develop strategies for managing or changing unwanted same-sex-attractions, feelings and behaviours?
On Sunday 27th of October the GRCA celebrated with more than 1000 supporters following the Summit that brought 23 nations together in beautiful Taipei, Taiwan for a meeting concentrating on the human rights of once-gay people.
"Once gay - Matthew and friends" tells the story of X Factor Malta Contestant Matthew Grech who shared his faith on TV in 2018 - including leaving homosexual practices. He was strongly criticised by Malta's Equality Minister who had been instrumental in bringing laws to ban "Conversion Therapy" in Malta, in 2016. But Matthew had simply shared his testimony of conversion - it had nothing to do with therapy. The film therefore shows that such therapy bans are really anti faith, and anti choice.
Speaking at the recent launch of the late Dr Joseph Nicolosi's book "Shame and Attachement Loss: The Pracical Work of Reparative Therapy", Dr Mike Davidson reviews the growing international bans on this therapeutic work.
