About Bonita Ackerman du Preez

My name is Bonita Ackerman du Preez, Founder and Director of Future-Edge Therapy and associates and I am your qualified Registered Trauma recovery therapist based in Bedford, Bedfordshire.

We also provide specialist Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) therapy for veterans through our associate highly qualified therapists based in the United Kingdom. 

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

We specialise in PTSD, trauma, grief recovery, anxiety and stress management and if you are committed to change and prepared to make the effort, we are the right therapists to help you now – no matter where you’re based. We serve customers across Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire & Bedfordshire, including Bedford, Milton Keynes & Northampton.

Here at Future Edge Therapy, we have a friendly, deeply caring and direct approach to therapy and coaching, helping you become accountable for yourself.

Future-edge Therapy and associates also offer corporate support for large organisations who seeks to find professional PTSD specialists to work with staff or teams needing 1-2-1 care. We have an extensive database of professional therapists located across the UK who support us. These services are offered remotely over Zoom or face-to-face depending on location. 

We use an ‘Integrated Therapy System‘ or ‘ITS’ using the best of several techniques to quickly dissipate your unwanted strong negative feelings and emotions. Once these are under control, changes happen rapidly. 

We have spent years training as therapists, helping adults and children overcome fears, trauma, unhelpful and negative beliefs about themselves. Often these beliefs were created by a negative event, experience or comment from a friend, family member or colleague many years before.

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

Our clients agree. We 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.”

Our interest in how the mind works has expanded to mental health provision and we offer a volunteer service to Bedfordshire Police. We also offer cost-effective workshops online where 800 people have accessed these workshops. These workshops can be booked on the workshops and events page. We 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 we do what we do now. Using our vast experience, we tailor-make your therapy session using the ‘Integrated Therapy System’ or ‘ITS’ designed during my 2000 hours of therapy experience:

  • Hypnotherapy
  • EMDR 
  • FLASH EMDR 
  • Brainspotting Therapy
  • IEMT – Integral Eye Movement Therapy
  • 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. Our success rate is high. We resolve issues quickly and effectively often within 7 sessions, however more complicated matters will need more in-depth therapy and may require additional sessions.
