Lesley Pilkington

Lesley Pilkington, a counsellor, was secretly recorded by an undercover journalist during a counselling session. The journalist was a homosexual man who deceived her into believing that he wanted counselling for unwanted same-sex attraction. Mrs Pilkington confirmed that she would be happy to meet with him but only within a Christian counselling context and he agreed. The journalist later complained to her professional body and to the press. She is now under investigation by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the case continues as she appeals its findings.
