id say fuel filter could be blocked, or the cat could be blocked.

get under the car (when cool) and knock on the cat. if you hear rattling then it's shagged itself.

If it's fine, id suggest that the fuel filter is clogged and until 3000rpm there isn't enough pressure to push the fuel through the blockage.

So my advice is to get the fuel filter changed (cheap and easy) and just check the state of your cat.

good luck.

Has it always been like this ? or did it just start happening recently...

Bourne is right about it possibly being the fuel filter/catalytic converter
