Having sexual thoughts about children doesn’t always lead to sexual behaviour. You have the power to choose how you behave and this guide gives you information and tools to manage your thoughts, feelings and actions effectively. By recognising and valuing your positive qualities and behaviour, you’ll be motivated and encouraged to reduce your risk of offending.
This section is based on our experience of working with people who have experienced sexual thoughts about children, incorporating their feedback and suggestions.
You can work through these in order, but there may be ones that feel more important to you that you want to address first. We encourage you to explore all the sections, even if you feel confident in some areas, as you may still find them helpful.
