Debbie Cates

Family and couple psychotherapist, St Neots.
Accredited Video Interaction Guidance (VIG)  practitioner.

Psychotherapy is the use of psychological methods, particularly when based on regular personal interaction, to help a person change behavior, increase happiness, and overcome problems.

VIG is a therapeutic intervention that makes a real difference for children and their families, using a strength-based intervention to strengthen relationships between carer and child.

I am an accredited VIG practitioner and accept referrals for VIG from the Local Authority and other public services as well as privately. If you are not sure if VIG is the right approach for you, please contact me for an initial discussion.
