Clinical Director and Lead Therapist at Select Healthy Mind Ltd. Windsor

Hi, my name is Barbara and I am the Clinical Director and Lead therapist at my own Private Psychotherapy clinic - Select Healthy Mind Ltd, Windsor. I am myself a trained and fully qualified psychologist and psychotherapist who has a background of many years helping patients and clients of all ages and backgrounds. I am fully accredited and registered with numerous professional bodies, including the British Association for Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy as well as EMDR UK & Ireland/EMDR Europe - with whom I am currently a Supervisor and in training to reach Consultancy level.

My practice prides itself in being able to offer face to face consultations as well as remote online video therapy using recognised, effective and ‘individually tailored’ treatment that reflects each individual’s unique personality and distinct needs.

Great value is placed on developing a therapeutic partnership with my clients built on trust and mutual respect. I offer a safe, non- judgmental, friendly environment where hopefully the client feels acknowledged, listened to and supported.

I believe we are all unique and as such no one type of therapy 'fits' all. My own ethos and my company’s  approach is to keep learning, keep researching and integrating different therapeutic models demonstrating proven success to help my clients achieve a good prognosis which will lead to long term benefits and improve their well being long after they leave treatment.

About Me

I am a fully qualified and accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) Practitioner and ‘Consultant in training.’ I achieved my Masters degree in CBT (MSc. CBT) at the Department of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at Buckinghamshire University.

My accreditation for CBT is held by the British Association for Cognitive Behavioural and Psychotherapy (BABCP) and I am also fully accredited for EMDR by EMDR. UK & Ireland/ EMDR Europe. I hold an Honours Degree in Psychology (BSc. Hons) which I also completed at the University of London.

I am also an Honorary member of The British Psychological Society (BPS).

I continually strive to deepen my knowledge and understanding of current techniques of delivering the best therapy for my clients by participating in numerous training courses and seminars organized by the world's top specialists. My own clinical practice 'Select Healthy Mind' (based in Windsor, Berkshire) is subject to continuous evaluation and supervision.

Previously, I worked for the National Health Service (NHS) as a Senior ‘Hi-Intensity’ Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist and in my time there helped introduce EMDR therapy through my continuing work. I continue to Supervise EMDT therapists within the service and beyond..

My own specialty is the treatment of adults suffering from PTSD, trauma, depression and mood disturbance, I also have great success treating anxiety disorders (G.A.D., social anxiety and specific phobias). My work helps people manage obsessive- compulsive disorder, panic disorders and cope better with autism and asperger syndrome. I have extensive experience working with patients suffering from complex trauma (PTSD) particularly as a result of Childhood trauma.
