Consultant Psychotherapist & Psychologist - Clinical Director of Select Healthy Mind Ltd (Windsor & Eton)

Hi, my name is Barbara Paczkowska, I pride myself at being an experienced and qualified psychologist and psychotherapist, I am currently a Consultant level EMDR Europe psychotherapist and Supervisor. My therapeutic journey began in the NHS, where I excelled in a previous role as a hi-intensity Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist. Today, I proudly serve as the founder and clinical director of 'Select Healthy Mind,' my own privately-based psychotherapy clinic in Windsor & Eton.

Although, equipped to treat a whole range of psycholgiacl presentations, my true expertise and passion lies in the specialized treatment of trauma, whether that be complex/multiple trauma (C-PTSD), single trauma (PTSD), developmental trauma stemming from childhood adversity, or attachment-based relational trauma. As a dedicated and recognized EMDR Europe Consultant, my focus is on delivering high-quality, personalized therapeutic interventions to address the nuanced needs of individuals grappling with their own unique and individual concerns.

At 'Select Healthy Mind,' we prioritize face-to-face consultations but can also offer therapy remotely via video call. Our ethos is in tailoring therapy sessions to each individual's distinct personality and requirements. My commitment and goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where clients feel acknowledged, heard, and most importantly supported. Recognizing the uniqueness of each person, I integrate various therapeutic models, drawing on my extensive and ongoing training, to ensure a personalized approach that fosters healing and personal growth.

Transitioning from my impactful work in the NHS to establishing 'Select Healthy Mind,' I bring a wealth of experience and true dedication to the field of psychotherapy. It's my passion to guide individuals through their healing journey, offering a comprehensive range of therapeutic services and making a real 'positive' difference to people's lives.

About Me

I am a fully accredited and experienced Consultant level therapist, specializing in Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I hold a Master's degree in CBT (MSc. CBT) from the esteemed Department of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at Buckinghamshire University and am accredited by the British Association for Cognitive Behavioural and Psychotherapy (BABCP) for CBT. More notably, I am a fully accredited Consultant and Supervisor with EMDR Europe, having received my accreditation from EMDR UK & Ireland/EMDR Europe. I am also a current member of EMDRIA.

My theraputic/career ‘journey’ also includes obtaining an Honours Degree in Psychology (BSc. Hons) from the University of London, and I am an Honorary member of The British Psychological Society (BPS). I actively participate in numerous training courses and seminars organized by leading specialists worldwide and remain committed to staying at the forefront of therapeutic advancements.

In my previous role within the National Health Service (NHS), I served as a Senior 'Hi-Intensity' Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist. During this time, I played a pivotal role in introducing EMDR therapy as an alternate treatment modality - based on it’s increased efficacy and recognition - contributing significantly to its integration into the service. Moving on from my NHS career, I now serve ‘privately based’ as a dedicated Consultant and Supervisor for EMDR therapists, extending my impact beyond the limitations and boundaries of ever increasing waiting lists.

My clinical practice, 'Select Healthy Mind,' based in Eton (Windsor), Berkshire, prioritises EMDR therapy, reflecting my commitment to this powerful and transformative approach, but I continue to be proficient in CBT and still practice this alongside my other work, My emphasis on EMDR underscores its significance impact on my therapeutic toolkit. Specializing in treating adults facing challenges such as PTSD, trauma, depression, and mood disturbance, I also have notable success in addressing anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorders, and providing support for individuals with autism and Asperger syndrome.

My extensive experience particularly shines in working with patients dealing with complex trauma, often stemming from childhood trauma.
