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:

Prior to qualifying as a Cognitive Analytic Therapist, I have actually been working with people in healthcare since 2006, when I started my initial training as a Learning Disability Nurse. I also went on to train as a dual registered Mental Health Nurse in 2012 and I have worked predominantly in the community with children, families and adults in the NHS.

I trained as a Cognitive Analytic Therapist in South London (Formerly St. Thomas') between 2016 - 2019 and have full accreditation from the U.K Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT).

I now work part-time as a senior manager in the NHS as well as offering private therapy. I have recently been appointed as a Trustee for ACAT UK. 


Clinical areas of interest:

Cognitive Analytic Therapy is a trans-diagnostic therapy, which means it can effectively be used with any presentation, so this list is not exhaustive, but I do have some particular areas of clinical interest in which I apply CAT;

  • Adults of all ages
  • Autism 
  • Borderline Personality Disorder 
  • Childhood Trauma 
  • Narcissism
  • Parents/Carers
  • Professional development and entrepreneurism 



I currently practice privately on Monday (all day) and Thursday (am) each week.

Appointments can be in-person or online, with some flexibility possible with prior discussion.
