Integrative and Relational Contemporary Psychotherapy
Cognitive Analytic Therapy
Cognitive Analytic Therapy is a time-limited therapy which brings together cognitive-behavioural and psychodynamic psychotherapy with early developmental and relational understandings of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
CAT is used within the NHS because it is research based and proven effective where a time-limited focus is needed. Sessions are usually limited to 16 weeks but can be extended for more complex cases or shortened for low to mild difficulties.
