More Reviews

Welcome to Select Healthy Mind Psychotherapy

All of us both young and old suffer difficult moments in our lives when we have find ourselves under seemingly unbearable amounts of stress, confusion and loss of purpose and direction…trapped often in what feels like a never ending cycle of despair where increasingly anxiety takes a grip and deters us from living life the way we want it to be. Days become a struggle rather than a joy and we lose sight of the way ahead and control over our thoughts and emotions.

Of course, it’s completely normal to experience ‘mood fluctuations’ and ‘bad days’… but when distressing patterns begin to take hold - resulting in symptoms that hinders our overall quality of life - that’s the moment to commit to making a positive change. Seek the correct professional guidance in these situations will help lead to longer lasting and overall more beneficial results.

If you feel you are or a loved one is at one of these crossroads in life and are in need of that help,  I'm glad that you have found our website. Select Healthy Mind was created to act as a bridge to help lead you over to the other side away from these problems to a brighter more satisfying future. I invite you to take that first step on that journey forward and to let the process of healing finally begin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Select is approved to work through most insurance providers such as:

It’s often a very good idea to use your healthcare insurance to pay for your therapy. Please check that your policy covers you to receive therapy.

Most Insurers will agree to cover costs for an initial set of sessions and later extend this depending on progress made in treatment.

In some cases you may need a referral from your G.P. depending on the terms outlined in your policy but this isn’t always necessary so please ask your Insurer first.

Your provider can contact Barbara Paczkowska - Select’s Clinical Director - on your behalf if you supply them with her provider name and number listed in boxes below or they may simply provide you with a ‘pre-authorisation code’, which you can pass to ‘Select’ when treatment begins. We will then invoice your insurer directly to fund your treatment.

Our work covers a huge spectrum of psychological issues, from minor to complex…and we work to treat a wide variety of conditions, both long-standing and recent onset.

Specific Psychological Conditions requiring Therapy

Typical presenting conditions vary from client to client and symptoms can range from stress and anxiety to anger, depression and relationship problems. Often several issues will be present at the same time. We are all unique as human beings and your own particular problems will vary in degree and presentation to everybody else.

As therapists we are able to work with the majority of conditions; however, psychiatry may be more appropriate initially for conditions such as psychosis, bi-polar disorder, personality disorders, schizophrenia, serious drug addiction and complex eating disorders.

If this is the case and you wish to consider medication, or are seeking a medical diagnosis or a medical report, then an appointment with a consultant psychiatrist would be more suitable, and we can direct you in order to arrange this.

If you have a moment please click on the tabs below to read further regarding any current conditions or issues that you may feel of particular concern to you or your family. If you believe we may be of assistance please do not hesitate to contact us either by telephone by calling Barbara on 07514071824 (to discuss arranging an assessment for adult therapy or by calling Joanna on 07702581165 to talk about Child/Adolescent therapy. You can also contact us directly by email at or by using the online contact form below and we will respond as soon as possible.

If you feel that your particular worries do not appear below or even differ slightly, please also feel free to contact us, as we can discuss this and if necessary I can direct you to another professional that works in the field that may offer more assistance.
