Horrific undercover footage shows autism ‘therapist’ threatening and abusing patient as government is called to intervene in rogue mental health therapies

Hungarian Jozsef Kanta charges London clients 짙3,500 for vile course involving hours of torture

A HUNGARIAN man posing as a ‘therapist’ for people with autism has been secretly filmed threatening and screaming at an undercover patient.

Sick혻Jozsef Kanta, who operates in London, charges 짙3,500 for a course of so-called treatment that involves verbally abusing clients for hours at a time.

But his shocking methods have been laid bare in a covert video that shows him raising his fist and shouting, “I punch you or slap you.혻Which one you want?”

He even told the researcher named Jordan, who mimicked symptoms of autism, that his mother didn’t love him.

Kanta also forced him to make prolonged eye-contact — something many people with autism find difficult.

The footage, obtained by the BBC, has been roundly criticised by experts and added to calls for the government to tighten regulations around mental health treatment.

Richard Mills, research director at the Research Autism charity, told the Beeb: “It has no place under the heading of therapy of any kind.”

Kanta claims to be using the treatment based on methods developed by Budapest firm혻Stabil Pont Technologia.

Zoltan Toth of the company said it혻can “kill autism”, the BBC reports.

But after agreeing and then denying that he was carrying out the brutal technique in the UK, Kanta said his actions in the vile secret footage were “a joke”.

Mr Mills said: “To be confronted by someone who is so threatening is horrifying, it’s terrifying.

“And to someone prone to stress and anxiety, the effects are likely to be catastrophic”.

People suspicious of dangerous health practices have been told to contact Citizens Advice.

Fiona O’Leary, of the campaign group Autistic Rights Together said: “Effective legislation is desperately needed to protect autistic people from an industry that allows them to be experimented on with bogus therapies.”
