Counselling & Psychotherapy

At CATS, all of our therapists are fully qualified, experienced and professionally registered with a suitable regulatory body (UKCP, BAPT, BACP). We offer a range of therapies to all clients and keep up to date with current research and training. Our range of clinical expertise includes Psychotherapy, Psychotherapeutic Counselling and EMDR for a broad range of issues including stress and anxiety, depression, PTSD, bereavement, historical trauma and abuse, phobias, self-harm, anger problems and family/relationship problems.

Clinical Child Assessments and Reports

At CATS we also offer unique Clinical Child Assessments which are undertaken without any knowledge of the child or family before the assessor meets the child. The reason for the ‘uninformed’ approach is so the assessor can remain totally objective throughout the assessment process. After the assessor has completed the child part of the assessment then all relevant information from family and professionals is gathered together.

Children’s Services

We offer a broad range of clinical services for children and adolescents using only specifically qualified and accredited children’s therapists. These services include Child Psychotherapy and Counselling, Play Therapy, Attachment Focused Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) for children, Trauma and Dissociation Therapy, Filial Therapy and Family Therapy.


At CATS we offer clinical supervision to child and adult therapists and trainee therapists. Supervision may be in a group format or individual sessions and can take place via video call where necessary.

We also offer supervision support to non-therapists, such as teachers or support staff who are working with vulnerable children.

First Aid for Mental Health

With around 1 in 4 people experiencing mental health distress at some point in their life in the UK, it is likely that every workplace is affected by mental health problems at some point. Mental Health and Well-Being Champions in workplaces can make the difference in creating healthy and supportive environments where mental distress is not a stigma.

Through our sister company, Bennu Consulting we offer Ofqual regulated FAA Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 courses in First Aid for Mental Health (Levels 4,5 and 6 in Scotland) through NUCO Training.

Training & Workshops

We offer a range of professional development and training sessions for school staff, social workers, educational psychologists, youth workers and other professionals. Our training is often tailored to meet the needs of the individual organisation and typically includes the subjects which we feel particularly relevant to current research and theories around child development, developmental psychology and neuroscience. Our trainings to date include attachment, trauma, dissociation and working with and understanding complex children from a developmental perspective.
