Specialist Treatment Organisation for the Prevention of Sexual Offending

StopSO UK : Specialist Treatment Organisation for the Prevention of Sexual Offending is an organisation that works with those at risk of sexual offending or reoffending, to enable them to stop acting out, thus reducing the risk to society and lessening the number of victims. We are also work with the families of sex offenders, who also have to come to terms with being related to a sex offender.

Sex offenders are often treated as the lowest of the low in our modern society. It is very hard for this client group to be able to access professional support and help. Practically no NHS services are available for this group. Most therapists do not want to work with these clients. At StopSO UK we want to enable sex offenders, or those who are acting out sexually, and those who have not acted out but have ‘troubling thoughts’ to be able to access experienced willing & able therapists.  Many sex offenders contact us by searching for ‘sex offender help’ in their search engine, which brings up the StopSO website.

Therapy may be suit suitable for you when:

  • You feel that your thoughts are worrying, and want help with them
  • You suffer stress, low self-esteem, depression or isolation
  • You worrry that your behaviour may escalate
  • Your behaviour may be impacting on relationships, family and work
  • You feel on the brink of committing a sexual offence
  • You feel on the verge of losing everything
  • You are concerned that your behaviour may become out of control
  • Other people may be at risk
  • Alcohol, drugs or other addictive behaviours may be increasing in an attempt to cope
  • You may be a man, or a woman, adult or adolescent
  • You may have had bad experiences of therapy in the past, and be reluctant to 'try again'
  • You may know someone who is acting inappropriately
  • NB StopSO therapists are trained to work with everyone, in a non-judgemental way
  • Request Help

    We want therapists, psychologists and doctors (and anyone else who is a professional in this field) who are willing and able to work with those who have committed a sexual offence (or are at risk of committing one) to join our network. Our aim is to make it easy for this client group to access therapeutic support for themselves and for their families.
