Catalyse puts new ideas into practice in safe, sensitive and creative ways. Catalyse offers a range of services including professionally accredited training in Cognitive Analytic Therapy. We also offer short courses, tailor-made, specialist training and consultancy. We can offer research support. We also offer accredited therapists who can provide brief therapy experiences to support professional and personal development, coaching, and specialist CAT supervision.
A core feature of our work has been CAT North’s annual intake each October of a cohort of over twenty to the CAT Practitioner Training, an in-service training course for mental health professionals in practising Cognitive Analytic Therapy.
Until May 2017, Catalyse Projects Forum met twice a year to share ideas, support project work, provide mentoring and plan CPD events. This was open to any qualified CAT therapists in the North of England. We are in the process of planning other ways for colleagues to be involved with Catalyse and to maintain contact with others in the local cognitive analytic therapy community.
In addition Catalyse has run a number of skills trainings including bespoke in-house trainings for organisations such as Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Trust, Tees, Esk & Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust, and Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
Consultancy projects have run across the north of England focusing on using CAT to train teams and developing this as a framework for relationally intelligent treatment alongside individual and group therapeutic work.
We provide Personal Reformulation experiences for trainee clinical psychologists and those completing CAT Skills training.
We provide ACAT-accredited clinical supervision to people using CAT therapeutically, and developing their CAT skills at different levels of training.
We offer an ongoing programme of CPD events.
Finally, Catalyse has helped to establish an independent specialist CAT practice based in Sheffield, providing a range of therapeutic services. More information can be found at the Catalyse Sheffield Psychotherapy Practice website . Please direct any enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
