Claire Walsh: Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) Practitioner/Supervisor and EMDR Therapist in Worthing

About Me

Hello, I’m Claire.

I did my CAT Practitioner and Supervisor training with the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust based in Sussex and I came to Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) through my interest in psychology and in how people can be supported through personal change.   I work with CAT as it is a very collaborative and time-limited approach.

Before I became a CAT Practitioner and Supervisor I worked as a learning and development consultant specialising in leadership programmes and coaching.  This organisational background has given me a great insight into work related challenges and the pressures leaders and teams face.  I’m interested in how the concepts of CAT can be used to help teams explore their relational patterns so they can improve their communication and collaboration.

I am experienced at working with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Issues with relationships
  • Low self-esteem
  • Phobias
  • Sexual abuse
  • Professional/career related issues
  • Addictions
  • Anger
  • Personality disorders
  • Attachment problems
  • Perfectionism
  • Eating disorders

For the types of problems CAT can help with, see the ACAT information sheet here.

I also offer EMDR for post traumatic stress (PTSD) and phobias.  I have completed Parts 1, 2 & 3 of the EMDR Europe Accredited Training. For more information regarding EMDR please click on the link here.


My therapy room is in Worthing (a 10 minute walk from West Worthing Station) and there is parking on site.


I work with individuals and my fees are £55 per 50 minute session.

My qualifications include a BSc in Psychology, MSc in Forensic Psychology, PGDip in CAT and I am Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  I am also an accredited CAT Supervisor as well as being certified in Parts 1, 2 & 3  of the EMDR Europe Accredited Training.
