Lying Spirits no more.

The excellent Lying Spirits website has ceased operation.
For some time now, it has provided a very good introduction to the fallacies behind so-called Theophostic Counselling.
Run by journalist and author Jan Fletcher, Lying Spirits showed how amateur psychology can be blended with theology to create a very dangerous cocktail.
A belief in recovered memories is central to Theophostic Counselling – although, thanks to the efforts of Jan Fletcher and others – the organisation promoting it appears to have modified its official position (to a degree).
More work needs to be done in this area however, and there is even a chance Lying Spirits itself could be revived.
Although Jan is unable to maintain the site herself due to other commitments – she is currently seeking a person to take it over and keep it up to date.
If you're interested, send us an email and we will put you in touch.
