Welcome to Child & Adult Therapy Solutions (CATS). At CATS we have a track record of providing highly professional therapy and counselling, assessments, clinical supervision and continued professional development. We offer a range of therapeutic solutions for children, adolescents, adults, families and offer sessions for individual clients to whole school and children’s service contracts across the North East of England.
We offer a service different to most others. At CATS we offer a range of psychological therapies using only qualified and registered therapists and counsellors who are specifically trained to work with children, families and adults. We do not time-limit therapy and will only work with clients that we can fully commit to.
