Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)
CAT works by identifying any learned behaviours, repeated patterns or beliefs from your past that were established in childhood as a way of coping and investigating whether or not they are contributing to your current difficulties. CAT aims to show you how you can change such beliefs and help you focus on ways of making better choices in the future and change ineffective patterns.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
The concept of CBT is that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected. The negative thoughts and feelings you experience can make you feel as if you are trapped in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help you break down in smaller parts, your overwhelming problems in a more positive way. Teaching you how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel. CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. CBT shows you practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis and helps you to learn skills that you can continue to use throughout your life. I look at it in a way of remapping your mind and thought processes.

Focuses on insight into gestalts in patients and their relations to the world, on the process (what is happening) than content (what is being discussed) and often uses role-playing to aid the resolution of past conflicts.
Gestalt Therapy is to help people work through their unfinished business and bring about closure.
The goal is for clients to become aware of what they are doing, how they are doing it, and how they can change themselves, and at the same time, learn to accept and value themselves.
Integrative therapy draws on several different therapeutic techniques to address the client’s needs. Therapists who offer integrative therapy have a broad field of knowledge. This way of working is tailored specifically to the client's needs and can be very effective.
Person-Centred therapy at the ways in which people perceive themselves consciously rather than a therapist try to interpret unconscious thoughts or ideas. The different components and tools used in this approach, including active listening, authenticity, paraphrasing, and more. The client already has the answers to the problems and the job of the therapist is to listen without making any judgements, without giving advice, and to simply help the client feel accepted and understand their own feelings.
Psychoanalysis is using specific theories and the relationships between conscious and unconscious mental processes. The purpose of psychoanalysis is to bring unconscious memories and processes into full consciousness so that the client can gain more control over their life. The goal is to uncover and resolve the patient’s internal conflicts. This treatment focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the patient, which usually forms an intense relationship. This is analysed and discussed in order to deepen the patient’s insight into their problems.
Psychoanalytic therapy is a form of in-depth talk therapy that aims to bring unconscious or deeply buried thoughts and feelings to the conscious mind. The repressed experiences and emotions, often from childhood, can be brought to the surface and examined. Working together, the therapist and client look at how these repressed early memories have affected or shaped the client’s thinking, behaviour, and relationships in adulthood and how they contribute to current situations. Psychoanalytic therapy takes place at least once a week and in some cases, the client may remain in therapy for a number of weeks, months or years.
Psychodynamic therapy focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in a person's present behaviour. The goals of psychodynamic therapy are a client's self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behaviour. it is similar to psychoanalysis. It also relies on the interpersonal relationship between client and therapist more than other forms of therapy. This form of therapy takes its techniques from a variety of sources, rather than relying on a single system of intervention.
Transactional Analysis is based on a very simple model, in which each person is considered to have three primary personality modes or ‘ego states’: Parent, Adult and Child. And at any given time, one of these modes is likely to be dominant. Transactional Analysis is about identifying which ego states are present in your transactions so that you can become more conscious of your thoughts and behaviours, and have better, more constructive transactions with people. The significance of the three modes is as follows:
Parent – In Parent mode, a person can be nurturing or controlling. And there are positive and negative aspects to each of these. For example, a positive controlling parent sets boundaries and gives people space; a negative controlling parent can be domineering and strongly opinionated.
Adult – In Adult mode a person operates in an objective, rational, logical way.
Child – In Child mode, a person can be intuitive and dependent.
