I see individuals over 18 for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), which is usually 16 sessions, once a week, for 50-60 minutes per session. CAT helps people understand and revise the roles they enact with themselves and others. This can lead to a reduction of anxiety and depression.
Notes are compiled after each session, and they are kept confidential. Without naming you, I may discuss your progress with a supervisor or co-supervisor. Payments for sessions are in cash at the start of each session.
If you are wondering about whether or not CAT is for you, please ring me on (01223 561781) for a free 15-minute interview in Cambridge or Southampton. If you prefer you can email me via my website at therapy-elia.co.uk
There is free parking.
I have been in private practice for over twenty years in Cambridge and Southampton. Now my practice is Cambridge only.
I also offer workshops in CAT for mental health professionals and trainees, as well as Supervision for those training in and practising CAT.
My training in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) was at Guys Hospital for four years. I am an advanced CAT psychotherapist and have an MSc in Mental Health Studies, the Diploma of Clinical Psychotherapist from GKT, and the Diploma of Supervisor from ACAT.
My academic qualification is a PhD. I am not a medical doctor.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
