Shona Innes Psychology works with young people who are affected by pornography. Clients range from school-aged boys and girls involved in ‘sexting’ to young people who have a fascination with sexually explicit materials, those who create and share material, and those with internet and pornography addiction. Shona Innes Psychology works through the social, moral, ethical and legal boundaries that are breached when young people become involved in pornography.

While many young clients are referred to Shona Innes Psychology by family members, partners and their doctor, Shona Innes Psychology also supports those who have been criminally convicted of child exploitation material and pornography-related activities that include serious matters of illegal underage pornography, animated pornography, involvement in pornography chatrooms, sharing websites/distributing pornography and grooming others for pornographic activities.

In addition to providing assessment and treatment for individuals directly viewing problematic pornography, Shona Innes Psychology provides support for family members and social networks that may include parents and siblings, partners and their children.

Shona Innes Psychology conducts independent assessments and provides recommendations for those using illegal or problematic pornography for the judicial process. Working with legal teams and the courts, we provide clear guidance for appropriate action and treatment that are best for the individual and in accordance with the Law, youth justice and correctional systems in balance with the requirements and expectations of the community.

Shona Innes is renowned for her high level forensic and clinical psychology qualifications and significant tenure in working with young people with complex behaviours.
