MP calls for 'therapy' ban
SWANSEA West MP Geraint Davies has proposed a new parliamentary bill which would ban therapists claiming they can "cure" homosexuality through counselling.
His Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Regulation) Bill would require all therapists to be registered and anyone found offering "conversion" therapy would be struck off.
He said: "This year a million Britons will seek psychotherapy but anyone can set themselves up as a psychotherapist with no training or recourse for the patient when something goes wrong.
"This gives a free rein to those offering bogus treatments."
