Welcome to ACAT

Welcome to the website for the Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT), a registered charity. We welcome members of the public, health professionals, ACAT accredited professionals, and anyone interested in finding out more about CAT. We hope the following pages will inform and inspire and, for those new to Cognitive Analytic Therapy, encourage further interest and, perhaps, even training in CAT.

The website offers an introduction to Cognitive Analytic Therapy, a collaborative programme for looking at the way a person thinks, feels and acts, and the events and relationships that underlie these experiences - often from childhood or earlier in life.

Christmas and New Year Office Hours

With best wishes for the festive season to all our website visitors.


CAT, Past, Present and Future:  The Legacy of  Dr Tony Ryle (1927-2016)

Friday, 10th March 2017, 9.30am to 6pm at Regent’s University, Central London

The Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy would like to invite you to join us at a one day conference in memory of Tony Ryle, and to celebrate his great contribution of Cognitive Analytic Therapy.

The programme will be a mixture of remembering Tony Ryle, his ideas about therapy and the early days of the development of the model, and also some new ways of working and new applications of CAT.  Those who knew Tony Ryle, or heard him speak, will know that he would never have wanted the model to be fixed in stone but to be a continuously evolving way of making therapy more accessible to anyone in distress, particular those with limited resources of their own.  As such, we hope that the day will alternate between looking back and remembering, and looking forward to new developments and diversity.

If you wish to attend please go to:  http://www.acat.me.uk/event/903/legacy+of+tony+ryle+-+one+day+celebration+2017-03-10.htm  to book.  Booking is essential.  We are charging a nominal fee of £25.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Jason Hepple - Chair of ACAT
