Background: Following the growing emphasis on the use of psychological consultation and the use of Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) as a consultation tool, this qualitative study explored staff members’ experiences of using CAT as a systemic consultation tool. Method: Interviews were conducted with nine members of the Multi-Disciplinary Team in a High Secure Hospital and the data analysed using thematic analysis from a social constructionist perspective. Results: Emerging themes of CAT as consultation tool included the availability and accessibility, the genuine value and mirroring enlightenment. Conclusion: The study demonstrates how genuine value within the system sits at the heart of accessibility and availability of CAT as a systemic consultation tool and the mirroring enlightenment of staff and patients. Implications for clinical practice are also discussed.
