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’.
Welcome to Going Forward with CBT
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Services
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.
How CBT Works
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 then help us to understand and make sense of a client’s responses and reactions to their problems (which can often be unhelpful).
A little about me…
I am a fully qualified CBT practitioner and have completed a Post Graduate Degree in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy at the University of Huddersfield. I am also BABCP registered.
The 35 years experience I have within the field of mental health has involved both community and crisis work. It is my belief that my nursing background (within mental health) has served to provide a strong foundation for the delivery of effective Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy.
