Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
there are less at risk perpetrators reaching out because of the high risk of being "criminalized" if the therapist / counselor / psychologist they confide assesses that the person is a high risk for harming children.  Such professionals are legally obligated to report patients / clients in such cases, and can risk losing their license if they do not.  So -- just by going to a professional to seek help -- a person in this circumstance takes a high risk of getting themself locked up in a prison or medical facility.

A related point is how poorly prepared most professional counselors are to deal with these cases.
