Cognitive Analytic Therapy in London

Worried about negative patterns of behaviour? CAT might be for you.

If you are looking for a short-term therapy that teaches you coping strategies but also delves into why you have developed negative behaviours and attitudes in the first place, Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) may well be an option for you. Cognitive Analytic Therapy can help you form more productive relationships with partners, family, friends and colleagues and break destructive patterns.

What is Cognitive Analytic Therapy?

Cognitive Analytic Therapy is, as its name suggests, a combination of therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy. It was developed in the 1980s by Dr Anthony Ryle at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital in London as a specific response to the mental health issues of a busy inner London community. Today, Online Therapy Company continues to provide effective Cognitive Analytic Therapy online to time-pressed Londoners from its central London clinic.

What does a Cognitive Analytic therapist do?

The foundation of a successful course of Cognitive Analytic Therapy is a good relationship between client and online therapist. CAT requires you to look closely at past experiences and discuss them honestly with your therapist before developing structured ways of dealing with how these experiences have affected you. CAT has a strong focus on the way you interact with other people, based on the principle that this has a knock-on effect on almost every other area of your life.

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.
