Nottingham [Andrea Daykin]

I am a UKCP Registered CAT Psychotherapist, ACAT Accredited Supervisor, and HCPC Registered Forensic Psychologist.  I have 20 years experience of working for the NHS in clinical forensic settings, including community settings.  For the last 6 years I have had a small private practice where I offer a professional and confidential service drawing on my experience of working with adults with a range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship difficulties. 

Having a diagnosis is not important to access CAT as I believe it is important that clients are seen as individuals.  The advantage of CAT is that it can help in the development of a shared understanding of presenting difficulties so that any ongoing needs are agreed together.  I therefore pride myself on ensuring each CAT therapy is tailored to each individual client, drawing on other psychological approaches I have been trained in.  I can also work with clients who do not consider themselves to have a mental health problem, but who may feel like they would benefit from a relational and collaborative approach to help them to make some changes to their life.

I have experience of providing personal therapy to professionals who are undertaking training in CAT (either at practitioner or psychotherapy level) as well as providing personal reformulations to clinical psychology trainees, and welcome opportunities to undertake this work.

Please get in touch if you would like more information and I would be happy to arrange to meet for an initial consultation. This will help us consider whether CAT is the therapy for you and what it might be like to work together.  If I am not the appropriate therapist to help you on your journey, I will happily suggest alternative ways of getting help.
