How do I start?

Before accessing any of the resources contained in the Self-Help section, it is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you complete each exploration in this Self-Awareness section. This will help you better know what problems you may be experiencing. Currently we have four explorations on offer.

After completing each exploration you will be shown your results along with some information to help you interpret them. We recommend that you complete each exploration in the order shown below.

We recommend that you complete the explorations relating to your internet use at the time of offending, and then again once you've completed the self-help modules. This will give you some feedback about what has changed and what problems you may still be experiencing.

Once you have completed the explorations in this section, please move on to the modules in Self Help which is the next section of the website.

Can you help us improve the effectiveness of this website?

It is very important to us that this website is as effective as possible in supporting people to make important changes in their lives. The most important feedback we can receive is from users of the website themselves, to help us understand if the site is really helping people to stop looking at sexual images of children. We would therefore be very grateful if you could spare about 10-15 minutes to complete our survey. If you do not have time to complete the survey now, please do come back to it later. There are other links to the survey throughout the site.
