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.

*Please note that each therapist is aligned to different Insurers so please check by clicking on the above icons if Barbara or Joanna is linked to yours

An increasing number of larger organizations provide an Employee Assistance Programme (E.A.P) For their staff.

Ask your personnel department if they will refer you through their own insurers.

Select Healthy Mind Ltd was founded in 2013 by Clinical Director, Psychologist and Consultant Psychotherapist Barbara Paczkowska MSc. CBT, BSc. (Hons). The practice embodies a vision centered on individual needs rather than mere labels or symptoms. Barbara's distinguished career, marked by her earlier role as a hi-intensity CBT Therapist in the NHS (BABCP accredited) and presently a Consultant EMDR Therapist (EMDR UK & Ireland) & vastly experienced and knowledgeable CBT therapist, has shaped the foundation of our clinic.

Known more simply as 'Select,' the clinic established its home in Windsor, Berkshire, in 2016, soon gaining recognition as one of the Royal Counties leading Psychotherapy clinics. A year later, Joanna Prior MSc., BSc., CDMDTP, CCTP I-II, CATP, CFTP, C-PD, Pg.Cert., Pg.Dip., (MBACP) joined the clinic, solidifying its commitment to personalized therapeutic care. Today, our clinic is situated in Sun Close, just off Eton High St., in its own private office space.

While 'Select' operates as a small yet dedicated partnership, each therapist brings unique and complementary skills and knowledge. Our team, led by Barbara and Joanna, treats clients of all ages and backgrounds using proven therapies effective in addressing emotional, personal, and complex psychological conditions. Joanna's experience in mainland Europe has enriched her expertise, particularly in working with young people, ensuring 'Select' remains at the forefront of therapeutic care. She also in a 'Visiting Lecturer' at University, keen to impart her knowledge to future generations of mental healthcare professionals.

Barbara Paczkowska is a Consultant level Practitioner and Supervisor in Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR Therapy) as well as a fully qualified CBT Therapist. Her continuous pursuit of knowledge, is recognised by her accreditation by reputable organizations such as BABCP and EMDR UK & Ireland/Europe. Her role as an Honorary member of The British Psychological Society (BPS) underscores her commitment to excellence. Barbara's specialization is in treating adults suffering from PTSD, trauma, depression, mood disturbance, as well as various other anxiety disorders. She specialises in C-PTSD, developmental trauma and attachment based trauma.

Joanna Prior also a trained EMDR Therapist, comes from a background of Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling. She contributes to 'Select' with a friendly, respectful, and non-judgmental approach. Her Integrative Therapy based on the Transtheoretical Model of Change, incorporating CBT, Mindfulness, EMDR, Counselling, and Attachment Theory, reflects her dedication to tailoring therapy to individual client needs. Joanna's certifications, including being a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Certified Child and Adolescent Trauma Professional, and a Registered Member MBACP, showcase her commitment to ethical practice and ongoing professional development.

At Select Healthy Mind (Windsor & Eton), our team is dedicated to providing a supportive and transformative therapeutic experience, tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual.
