Abingdon [Hayden Stothard]

I often tell my patients that until you notice something about yourself, you cannot change it. In this sense, therapy is about talking with a trusted person to think about what troubles you in your life and why it always feels as though history repeats itself.

Whether that is with your work, friendships or romantic interests (or all of them), getting caught up in patterns of relating and behaving make starting afresh or doing something differently, really hard to do. It's my job as your therapist to help you notice these patterns and to start making changes in your life.


About me:

I have been working as a healthcare professional for over 14 years, starting with my initial training as a Learning Disability Nurse in 2006. I then completed my Mental Health Nurse training in 2012 and have worked exclusively in the community with both children and adults in the NHS.

I started my training as an Cognitive Analytic Therapist with South London (Formerly St. Thomas') CAT Practitioner training in 2016 and have gained accreditation from the Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT).

I now work part-time in the NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and have set up my own private practice to offer Cognitive Analytic Therapy to adults. 

As a Registered Nurse & Therapist, I abide to the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) code of conduct, as well as the code of Ethics and Practice set out by the Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapy.


My specialities:

  • Adults of all ages
  • Complex relationship issues
  • Stress
  • Developmental trauma
  • Recurrent depression
  • Anxiety
  • Inter-marital difficulties and parenting


I offer private work some evenings and during the day on Thursdays each week. For more information or to make a booking, please visit;


or alternatively, email;



I hope to hear from you in the future,
