Thank you for visting my website where you can find out more information about Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and EMDR and whether either of these may be a suitable therapy for you.
Life is full of challenges and how we deal with them can make a big difference to our overall well-being. So, my aim is to work alongside you, as you tackle these challenges and work towards greater self-insight and personal change. Providing a safe and supportive therapeutic space will allow you time to compassionately look at the aspects of your life that you want to let go of or change.
I appreciate that seeking therapy can be difficult and you may be concerned about whether or not you would feel comfortable talking to someone. So, I offer a free, no obligation meeting, either in person or online, to explore how we might work together.
If you would like to book this initial session please contact me.
If you are interested in EMDR please see my EMDR page for more information.
I am trained to offer online therapy sessions if this is your preference. The badge below shows I have successfully completed the course ‘How to do counselling online’ developed by the Open University and BACP.
The aim of CAT is for us to work together to identify your unhelpful patterns of thinking and relating to others. It is an active therapy which focuses on personal change and I may ask you to do homework such as keeping a journal or another form of self-monitoring in between sessions. In therapy we will work together to map out and understand some of the unhelpful patterns that may be causing
you difficulties in the way you treat yourself and interact with others. Sometimes, we think or behave in a way that can prevent us from living the life we want and CAT provides a supportive, therapeutic framework for understanding these patterns and where they came from so you can choose another way of being in the world.
CAT is time-limited and normally takes place over 16 to 24 weekly sessions the precise number of sessions will be agreed between us. You can read a brief overview of what you can expect from Cognitive Analytic Therapy here, as well as further information on how we would work together.
The Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT) also has a number of very useful information sheets which you can download below:
