About me

Hello,

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 and panic disorders. 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.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified and accredited therapist in C.B.T. (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and E.M.D.R. (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy.) - where I am currently a 'Consultant in Training.'

I have a Masters Level degree in C.B.T. (MSc. CBT) from the Department of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at Buckinghamshire University. I am accredited by the British Association for Cognitive Behavioural and Psychotherapy (BABCP), and E.M.D.R. UK & Ireland. I also attained an Honours Degree in Psychology (BSc Hons) from the University of London.

I am 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 clinical practice 'Select Healthy Mind' (based in Windsor, Berkshire) is subject to continuous evaluation and supervision.

I previously worked for the National Health Service (NHS) as a Senior Hi-Intensity Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist/Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing therapist treating a host of mental health conditions. I still supervise several staff under me in EMDR that work both inside and outside the service.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
