Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)

CAT is an integration of analytic and cognitive therapy. A relationship focussed, active and collaborative time limited approach involving increasing your understanding and self-awareness of the impact of past experiences and early relationships on your current difficulties. This is particularly seen through identifying the repeated patterns of responding within your relationships with others, how you view the world and how you feel about yourself.

The emphasis is on the importance of the therapeutic relationship which aims to foster your reflective capacity and help you find alternative ways of relating to yourself and to others which may then produce significant and positive lasting change.

CAT can be used to treat a wide range of mental health difficulties, including anxiety, depression, self -harm, eating disorders and can be particularly helpful with clients who have experienced disrupted attachments and/or developmental trauma during childhood.
