CAT therapy
« on: May 19, 2021, 07:21:36 PM »
Does anyone have experience with CAT therapy?

I'm undergoing assessments at the moment, and the therapist mentioned they're keen to try this. I'd never heard of it and can't find loads online, so just wondered if anyone had positive experiences.

I'm really just grateful for being given a bit of a plan and a way forward, but it would be good to know a bit more about what's coming.

I know this was posted a while ago but I thought I would respond to see if it could help anyone who might look at this. I had never heard of it until now. I believe that it is similar to CBT except that with CAT there is more looking at past events and experiences where as with CBT there is a greater emphasis on the here and now. On the counselling directory website there is an article about Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and other therapeutic approaches as well. I hope you have found the therapy to be useful for you!
