My name is Barbara and I am a psychologist and psychotherapist qualified with many years of study, research and practice in helping clients from both the NHS & private sector. I am fully accredited and registered with numerous professional bodies, including the British Association for Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy and EMDR UK & Ireland.
I am the clinical director of the ‘Select Healthy Mind’ team in Windsor who take pride in being able to offer face to face consultations with ‘individually tailored’ therapy sessions on site, that reflect each individual’s distinct personality and needs.
My specialty is the treatment of adults suffering from depression and mood disturbance, anxiety disorders (social phobia, specific phobias), obsessive- compulsive disorder, panic disorders, Autism and Asperger syndrome. I also have extensive experience working with patients who have suffered from complex trauma (PTSD).
Valuing the importance of a therapeutic relationship, I base my relationships with clients on trust and partnership. Drawing on extensive experience I aim to provide a safe and non- judgmental environment where you the client feels acknowledged, listened to and supported. As we are all unique no one type of therapy 'fits' all and I therefore integrate the therapeutic models in which I have been trained to meet your particular individual needs.
