Newcastle and Northumberland [Catherine Dinning]

Hello, I'm Catherine Dinning and I am an ACAT CAT Practitioner and registered with the HPC as an Occupational Therapist. I work within the Northumberland and Newcastle areas and have 16 years of experience working with adults within the NHS. Some of the difficulties I have worked with have been anxiety, stress, depression, personality difficulties, relationships difficulties, trauma, substance misuse and offending. 

Please feel free to get in touch if you’d like to know more, or to discuss whether CAT might be able help you. I always offer an initial phone contact first, followed by an assessment session, which also helps us find out what it might be like for us to work together if you do decide to embark on therapy.  If CAT doesn’t seem right for you then we’ll discuss how to get the help you need, either privately or via the NHS if necessary.

Please contact me by email if possible with a brief description of the issues which are troubling you at the moment: 

and we can have a chat about your needs from there.

Working hours 

Mainly evenings, possibly Saturday morning or Mondays
