Jane Clarke ACAT Accredited Cognitive Analytic Therapist

Counselling and Psychotherapy

Why do I always end up in this situation? Here I go again! Sound familiar?

Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) is widely used in NHS psychotherapy services, and is useful for identifying how we end up stuck in vicious cycles of thinking, feeling and behaving. It's helpful for a range of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, stress, addiction, eating disorders, personality disorders, self-harm, patterns of either being abused by or abusive to others, or just general unhappiness and dissatisfaction with life. It's a time-limited therapy … typically between 8-24 weeks…and follow-up sessions can be available to support consolidation and maintenance of new understandings and positive changes.

I've been a CAT therapist for approximately ten years, practicing in both the NHS and non-NHS organisations, and have over twenty-five years experience working with distressed individuals in both mental health and social service sectors. I adhere to the strict ethical protocols demanded by ACAT, my accrediting body. If you'd like to find out more about CAT, detailed information is available on the ACAT website www.acat.me.uk

If you'd like to arrange an initial consultation to see if CAT could help you, I can be contacted by email at jclarke8@sky.com or by telephone, on 07467 349 134
