Requirements for Private Practice Listing on ACATonline

In order to ensure quality and consistency of the private practice listings on ACATonline, and in line with ACAT's policy for promoting Private Practitioners on the website the following requirements need to be met in order to be accepted for publication on the website.

To be eligible for inclusion on the list there are several criteria that CAT Private Practitioners must satisfy.

Private Practitioners are required to:

  • be a qualified CAT Therapist (Practitioner) or CAT Psychotherapist
  • practise CAT according to ACAT's code of ethics and practice
  • have professional indemnity insurance cover of at least £1,000,000
  • be in regular supervision with a CAT Supervisor but if this is not possible, then in appropriate supervision with a supervisor member of an accredited body
  • be a full member of ACAT

If you wish to be listed on the site you may fill in a listing record on the site by clicking on this link:

NB. This information is also displayed to the public alongside any private practice listings.

CAT  Therapists (Practitioners) usually have either core training as a mental health professional (e.g. as a Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Nurse, Social Worker or Occupational Therapist,) with a minimum of two years post-qualification experience, or previous training in counselling to an accredited level followed by a two year training in Cognitive Analytic Therapy with accreditation following successful completion.

CAT Psychotherapists have qualified as CAT Practitioners and have undertaken an additional in-depth two year training leading to this qualification.
