Welcome to Going Forward with CBT – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Services in Wakefield. My name is Margaret Holmes, but most people call me Mags. My work as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, provides a personalised and confidential approach to talking therapy for adults aged 18 and over. The 35 years’ experience I have, within the field of mental health involving community and crisis work, has provided a strong foundation for my current CBT practice. Some examples of the problems by which clients are affected include low mood, anxiety, worry, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) , obsessive-compulsive disorder. (OCD)

CBT is one of the most well researched talking therapies to date. In essence, CBT helps us to work together to identify the key links between our thoughts, feelings, behaviours and physical responses. This can help us understand and make sense of unhelpful responses/reactions to problems. Skills learned during CBT can aid progress towards therapy goals.

My approach to therapy is based upon the premise that CBT is not just a job, but a vocation. I believe that it’s a privilege to work with clients who may feel a sense of uncertainty and vulnerability about discussing their feelings and problems with a 'stranger'. It is my belief that emphasis upon the confidential nature of the relationship is paramount.
