Perhaps unsurprisingly, there's a strong evangelical Christian element. Strudwick had sessions with two therapists, and one of them in particular, who he calls Lynne, mixes religion in with her entirely predictable explanations for homeosexuality (neither of which apply to Strudwick) – child abuse and a "difficult birth" ("Often [with homosexuality the birth] is quite traumatic, the baby was put into intensive care and because of the separation from the mother there can be that lack of attachment").
Lynne is a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Strudwick has since reported her to them) and, perhaps most shockingly, she suggests that a local NHS GPs surgery refers "patients" to her for treatment, although she says it is best to say you need treatment for "anxiety and depression". When Strudwick phones the surgery in question, one of the partners tells him they do not refer people for reorientation therapy.
Concluding his research, Strudwick asked UCL psychiatrist Professor Michael King to comment on the practices of the two therapists he dealt with. Here's what he said about Lynne:
"This is grossly improper practice. She's imposing prayer and using evidence-free techniques. The whole approach towards the subject of sexual abuse is extremely unprofessional. Leading [and] suggestion in a therapeutic situation is the absolute antithesis of what an exploration of sexual abuse should be about. It's the base of many of these false memory syndromes. She should not be able to get referrals from a GP. Her membership of the BACP should be immediately revoked."It really is an excellent article - I urge you to go and read the whole thing.
