Hello .... my name is David and I am a CAT practitioner and UKCP registered psychotherapist with over twenty years of experience in NHS mental health services, and since 2002 I have worked exclusively as a psychotherapist in secondary care services for adults. I have considerable experience in working with clients, both individually and in groups, who are struggling with a very varied range of difficulties. These difficulties often present as symptoms such as anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and / or struggles with sleep, eating and self-esteem, as well as others. Using CAT can effectively aid understanding and resolution of the underlying causes of symptoms and other habitual difficulties. In doing so that the individual can live more effectively, with greater contentment, and in more meaningful relationships with self and others.
The focus of my CAT practice is in using the relationship between therapist and patient to help the person both achieve understanding and address the difficulties they are struggling with. I enjoy working with individuals seeking help in the hope that together we can achieve some meaningful changes in their lives, and in doing so I use CAT in a fundamentally collaborative manner. I see people as having their own histories, experiences and resources, and I work holistically in a manner that takes these into account as a fundamental aspect of the work of therapy.
I am currently able to offer CAT therapy in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Ryton, Gateshead on a Wednesday evening and a Thursday evening.
I am able to offer CAT to individuals who are seeking therapy as part of their training in the CAT practitioner qualification.
I look forward to hearing from you and please do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested in possibly working together, or if you would like to discuss things more generally. Please either send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can give me a call on 07515-564961.
