How can Cognitive Analytic Therapy help me?
Not everyone wants a therapy that digs up painful memories. Equally, not everyone is suited to a structured course of treatment that only delivers tools for dealing with emotions but does not look at why they have emerged. Others require an approach like Cognitive Analytic Therapy which uses both methods. You need to think about what you want from therapy to decide if CAT is for you. If you find that CAT suits your needs, it can be used to help you improve every area of your life, especially your communication with and reactions to others.
How long does Cognitive Analytic Therapy last?
Online Cognitive Analytic Treatment is a short-term therapy, usually lasting between 16 and 24 weekly sessions. It is up to you and your therapist to decide exactly how long you will meet for. If you feel you need further therapy after your course of CAT has finished, your CAT therapist will help you decide on your next step. Even if you do decide to go on and try another form of therapy, your course of CAT therapy will form a firm foundation for further work.
