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.
