Welcome to website of New Zealand Cognitive Analytic Therapy (nzCAT).
We are a group of practitioners working together to provide information and training in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) for New Zealanders.
Our aim is to provide a platform for communication, collaboration, and training for any health professional interested in CAT.
