About the program

TROUBLED DESIRE is a free support service for people who are concerned about their sexual attraction to children. We would like to make it easier for you to deal with this sensitive topic. Take the opportunity to discuss your sexual preferences, understand them better and overcome conflicts. Together we will work on your safety, well-being and healthy behaviour. Together we contibute to protection of minors and stop the consumption of problematic images.

Explore the possibilities of profound change and think openly with us about your tendencies and behaviour. Immerse yourself in self-testing/assessment, self-help and knowledge or use the anonymous chat with our experienced professionals (in English, German, Spanish, Czech or Portuguese) and feel free to contact us if you would like to talk to therapists in person.

The use of Troubled Desire and the therapist contacts are anonymous, confidential and subject to professional secrecy. We attach great importance to the protection of your privacy (privacy policy).
