CrossRoads Counselling Centre was the birth place of the STEPS Living and Loving Freely Programme, which emerged from the belief that more specialized help was needed for the treatment of problematic sexuality than what counselling could achieve on its own.
Over the past twenty-five years David Moore has used his vast counselling experience to pioneer New Zealand’s first community-based treatment programme for problematic sexuality (including sexual addiction and abuse).
In 2009 the STEPS (Steps To Ending Problematic Sexuality) Community Trust was established to better articulate the developments of the STEPS Living and Loving Freely Programme.
In 2014 David and Jean became the first counsellors in New Zealand to receive an Unsung Heroes Award in parliament for their services to marriage and families facing issues of problematic sexuality. Concerned that a wider collective of health professionals was needed, in 2015 the STEPS Community Trust coordinated a discussion forum to consider setting up a Sex Addiction Network of New Zealand.
Currently, David is writing a new series entitled Growth for Both. This series is complimentary to the Living and Loving programme and includes:
- Communicating Healthy Emotions
- Harnessing the Power of Forgiveness
- Self Assertiveness
- Authentic Self and Relational Health
- Soul Mates
