We always work one to one with clients - never in groups
We are independent of all other agencies, and offer an initial face-to-face or telephone consultation within seven days from your first contact with us. We are non-judgmental professionals who are specialist in this work, with long previous careers in the justice system, and working with men under investigation.
For People Who Are Under Investigation - The Safer Lives Programme.
Following an initial consultation, this five session programme is designed for people who are under police investigation for online and other sexual offences - it provides you with emotional support, an understanding of the justice system and opportunities to understand and change behaviours.
We have supported over 350 men through the Safer Lives Programme, which is semi-structured and delivered one-to-one, allowing it to be tailored to your individual needs. We use our expertise to help you understand and address offending behaviour - this being an important mitigating factor that could reduce the severity of any sentence passed down.
On completion of the Safer Lives programme you will receive a letter for the court confirming your attendance on the course and what the programme has included.
The Safer Lives programme can be completed over a five week period or in a condensed format, which can be completed over two consecutive days.
For People Who Are Not Under Investigation.
If you have not been arrested or placed under any other form of investigation, we can help you to understand any sexual thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are causing you distress, or becoming problematic in your life. This might be unwanted patterns of behaviour such as pornography or other sexual addictions, or it may be recurring or persistent attraction to minors.
Following an initial consultation, we will advise you and collaborate with you to create the most appropriate support. Commonly, this would follow a similar pattern to the Safer Lives Programme - using five hour-long sessions to assess and help address unwanted behaviours or the distress that often comes from being 'minor attracted'. At the end of the five sessions, and if further support was needed, ongoing support is usually available and/ or we can signpost or link you to other helpful resources.
