Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) is an intensive time-limited therapy and can be either brief (6 – 16 sessions) or medium to longer term (16 – 32 sessions). We will work together to understand how problems have developed and why repeating patterns are persistent. We will explore finding positive and sustainable change. This form of therapy is collaborative; this means that we work together to find practical and effective ways to support you in managing difficult thoughts, feelings and behaviours. 

CAT is Cognitive in that it makes full use of our capacity to observe and think about ourselves, our feelings and our behaviour, and Analytic in that unacknowledged, unconscious factors are explored and worked with. Collaboration between therapist and client lies at the heart of this work. 

CAT offers a very focused approach within an agreed time-limited contract; remaining mindful that the end of therapy is always in sight,
