More Reviews

Welcome to Select Healthy Mind Psychotherapy

All of us… both young and old can suffer difficult moments in our lives where we find ourselves at a loss - under huge amounts of stress, feeling anxious or depressed. Our ‘sense of purpose’ and ‘direction’ becomes less certain and we can become trapped in a cycle of despair which prevents us from living the life the way we always hoped and desired.

Days can become a struggle rather than a joy and we lose sight of the road ahead. Our sense of ‘control’ feels stripped from us and we lose a sense of meaning and purpose in our life’s journey.

Whilst it’s completely normal to experience mood fluctuations and the odd ‘bad day’… when distressing patterns begin to take hold - resulting in clear symptoms that hinder the overall ‘quality of our lives’ - this is the moment to seek out positive change. Often, finding the right professional help and guidance can help rediscover focus and meaning. Therapy offers long lasting, life changing skills to help us navigate difficulties in our lives..

If you or a loved one find yourself in this situation and are ready to commit to this healing process I'm glad that you have found our website. Select Healthy Mind was established to be a ‘bridge to a brighter tomorrow’. I invite you to take that all important first step across that bridge and to let the process of healing begin.

Select Healthy Mind Ltd was founded in 2013 by Clinical Director, Psychologist and Psychotherapist Barbara Paczkowska MSc. CBT, BSc. (Hons). Barbara’s aim was to create a Practice focused towards ‘individual needs’ rather than simply addressing any ‘label’ or ‘symptom’. Her career has taken her from excelling at senior management level as a hi-intensity CBT Therapist in the NHS (BABCP accredited) & to ‘Consultant level Training’ as an EMDR Therapist (EMDR UK & Ireland). She is also a recognised ‘Honours member’ of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a current member of EMDRIA.

‘Select’ - as the clinic is more commonly referred to - found it’s home in Windsor, Berkshire in 2016 and has gone on to become recognised as one of the Royal Counties leading Psychotherapy clinics after Barbara was joined by Joanna Prior Msc., BSc., C-DBT, CDMDTP, CCTP I-II, CATP, CFTP, C- PD, Pg.Cert., Pg.Dip., (MBACP) …just one year later.

Together they operate as a small yet dedicated partnership of professional Psychotherapists each bringing together differing yet complimentary skills and knowledge. ‘Select’ treats clients of all ages and backgrounds using a variety of focused based therapies - all proven effective in alleviating a host of emotional, personal and complex psychological conditions. Joanna has also worked in mainland Europe - developing her knowledge and skills set abroad; this valuable experience has enhanced her knowledge and training - she excels at working with young people in particular and the diversity of clients ‘Select’ now accepts keeps the partnership at the forefront of therapeutic care.

Below we have produced some common FAQ’s that aims to provide answers your immediate questions regarding ‘Select Healthy Mind Therapy’ and our delivery of service. Please take some time to read it.

We know that finding the right therapist to fit your needs can be a little daunting so we invite our client’s to contact us directly if you would like to discuss anything.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

It’s often a very good idea to access private 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 number of sessions but later can 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 also contact us on your behalf if you supply them with your chosen therapist’s provider name and number listed in boxes above and 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.

Specific Psychological Conditions requiring Therapy

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.

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 or texting Barbara on 07514071824 or Joanna on 07702581165 (to discuss arranging a face to face, telephone or  remote online video assessment session) or you can directly contact us by email for more information 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 anyway, as we can discuss this and hopefully we would be able to direct you to another professional that works in the field that may offer greater assistance.
