CAT tries to focus on what a person brings to the therapy (‘target problems’) and the deeper patterns of relating that underlie them. It is less concerned with traditional psychiatric symptoms, syndromes or labels.
CAT recognises that people are so much more than their identified problems or diagnoses and helps each individual find their own language for what appears to go wrong as well as setting manageable goals to bring about change.

Some CAT therapists work with people with eating disorders, those with addiction problems (like drugs and alcohol), obsessional problems, anxiety, depression, phobias, psychosis, bipolar illness, and a number of therapists work with adolescents, older people and people with learning difficulties and in forensic settings.
CAT is mostly offered to individuals, but it can also be used effectively with couples, in groups and to help teams understand the ‘system’ in which they work.
