Alison Jenaway – 07771 595594

Alison is currently on sabbatical and not taking any new referrals. (April 2019)

I work in the NHS as a Consultant Psychiatrist in Psychotherapy, in the Liaison Psychiatry department of Addenbrooke’s hospital. I have also worked as the psychiatrist for the Cambridge University Counselling Service for the past 10 years.

I trained in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) in the early 1990’s and am a supervisor, trainer and current Chair of the national Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT).

I have presented my work at national and international CAT conferences and have written several articles for the journal of ACAT. My most recent publications include using CAT with young people and parents, working with medically unexplained symptoms using CAT and combining Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) with CAT.

I have a particular interest in working with young people who have a diagnosis of personality difficulties or complex trauma.

I see people on Monday afternoons and Saturday mornings in central Cambridge.
