Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) specialist
Christina is an accredited CAT therapist and EMDR therapist. Additionally, she has commenced further specialist CAT Psychotherapy training.
Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) is a time-limited therapy (typically 16 or 24 sessions), which explores the presenting problems that bring an individual to therapy and the deeper patterns that underlie them. CAT is an active collaborative therapy guiding an individual to become an observer of their own life, exploring learned beliefs, relationship patterns, and exploring possible changes.
Have therapy with Christina
Christina invites individuals into a safe, authentic, compassionate therapeutic space that offers warmth, acceptance, healing and explores unfolding opportunities. Initial therapy sessions involve exploring together your emotional distress and difficulties to develop a shared understanding (i.e., formulation) and shared goals, which guide discussions about which psychological approach might support personal growth, enhance a meaningful life, and be most suitable for the remainder of the agreed therapy sessions. Online zoom therapy sessions are available on weekday evenings.
