About Bonita Ackerman du Preez

My name is Bonita Ackerman du Preez and I’m your qualified Registered Hypnotherapist, Hypnotist, International trainer and Confidence Coach based in Bedford, Bedfordshire.

I help you make changes to your personal and professional life quickly, giving you the power to deal with mental, emotional and psychological issues.

I specialise in PTSD, trauma, anxiety and stress management and if you are committed to change and prepared to make the effort, I am the right person to help you now. I have a friendly, deeply caring and direct approach to therapy and coaching, helping you become accountable for new self.

I have spent 23 years teaching and 3 years as a therapist, helping adults and children overcome fears, trauma and unhelpful and negative beliefs about themselves. In most cases these beliefs where created by a negative event, experience or comment from a family member many years before.

There is little I’ve not heard of or dealt with and I know my clients have said I always remain calm, non-judgemental and show respect by listening.

My clients agree. I often hear “I’ve never been able to say this out loud to anyone…”, I’ve never thought my anxiety resulted from my past trauma would affect my life as it has.”

My interest in how the mind works has expanded to mental health provision and I offer a volunteer service to Bedfordshire Police. I offer Mental Health First Aid and Corporate Therapy support and training to organisations and businesses.

My passion for making a difference and helping adults and children is why I do what I do now. Using my vast experience, I tailor make your therapy session using a combination of:

  • Hypnotherapy
  • EMDR
  • TimeLine Therapy
  • Neuro-Linguistic Programming
  • Kinetic Shift
  • The Rewind Technique
  • Performance Coaching

We are all individuals with different needs; therefore, each client will need a bespoke and different approach. My success rate is high. I resolve issues quickly and effectively often within 3 – 6 sessions.
