What is Cognitive Analytic Therapy?
CAT examines the way we think, feel, and act to overcome problematic behaviours.
CAT offers a collaborative approach to understanding where your distress comes from; with a focus on exploring your early life experiences.
By exploring experiences from your childhood, you’ll understand the origins of your problematic behaviours; positively changing negative associations.
What type of person benefits from CAT?
How does online Cognitive Analytic Therapy work?
CAT is often delivered in groups of 16 sessions.
- Sessions 1-4 – talking therapy; exploring your current difficulties in conjunction with your developmental history. Your therapist creates a “reformulation letter” which you summarises a shared understanding of your life story, with some insight into how your past might be affecting your present.
- Sessions 5-12: formulation diagram; you’ll use formulation tools and journals to help recognise your unhelpful behavioural patterns. Together with your therapist, you’ll develop strategies to overcome unhelpful patterns.
- Sessions 13-16: talking therapy; an explicit focus on endings. You’ll create goodbye letters that you read aloud
What are the benefits?
CAT tends to be an effective therapy with statistically few drop-outs. Many patients find this approach incredibly accessible and helpful.
