Video Transcription

Cognitive analytic therapy is an excellent first therapy for clients. So clients that haven’t received any form of psychological therapy before, they are likely to gain a very good understanding of themselves with Cognitive Analytical Therapy. So if somebody only wants to spend a relatively short amount of time receiving therapy, Cognitive Analytical Therapy offers quite a comprehensive understanding and some strategies for breaking relational patterns within 16 sessions most of the time. So usually, the people who haven’t receive therapy before but also who find themselves repeating the same patterns again and again in relationships would be the ones that are likely to benefit the most from cognitive analytic therapy.
