We offer on-site treatment for people with a sexual attraction towards children who have not acted out. The treatment is currently available in two cities; Pune (KEM Hospital Research Centre) and Mumbai (individual therapists). It is completely confidential and free of cost.
The goal of the therapy is to overcome problems in dealing with one's sexual preference. Especially noteworthy is the ability to control one's behavior in such a way that sexual offences against children are entirely avoided.
Some components of the therapy include:
The treatment takes place in individual sessions. It follows a structured therapy plan, taking into account the unique needs of the individual. It integrates sexological and psychological approaches as well as the option of medication when necessary and wished for by the participant. In addition, the individual can decide to involve the partner, friends or family members.
It is our basic understanding that no person with pedophilia and/or hebephilia has chosen their sexual preference and that an offence-free life with pedophilia/hebephilia is possible. We believe that no one is guilty for their desires, but everyone is responsible for their behavior. For people who don’t have the chance to get in real contact with therapists, help is available on TROUBLED DESIRE which offers completely anonymous and free of cost online self-assessment and self-management.
