Memorandum of understanding on conversion therapy 

Conversion therapy is a form of therapy that assumes certain sexual orientations or gender identities are inferior to others, and seeks to change or suppress them. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU 2017) makes it clear that conversion therapy in relation to gender identity and sexual orientation (including asexuality) is unethical, potentially harmful and is not supported by evidence. The MoU is a joint document signed by over 25 health, counselling and psychotherapy organisations which aims to end the practice of conversion therapy in the UK.

APCCA  support the Memorandum of Understanding on conversion therapy and related practices and we aim to uphold the principles and beliefs within, including ending conversion practices. You can read more and access the MoU here.

All APCCA members are expected to promote ethical practice, including these principles, when working with clients.
