    review rating 5  I am normally a confident person but when I took up singing my confidence and anxiety of singing in public stopped me enjoying what I wanted to do most and I nearly gave up .That's when Bonita suggested her therapy sessions .I had one long session and a top session with a number of techniques and there was a huge immediate improvement. I now sing in public with a confidence that wasn't there before and an enjoyment of my singing and I still use the techniques that Bonita taught me. if you are struggling with any kind of stress ,anxiety or confidence issues including self-esteem, I would highly recommend you allow Bonita to help you to. Five stars!!

This helped a great deal and I would not hesitate to recommend her again. Many thanks!

Bonita helped me to overcome my fears and believe in myself. I was feeling anxious in some situations and this was affecting my daily life, my mood, etc and made me feel frustrated. We worked together through a few sessions and I learnt to relax, accept my feelings and see things in a different way. Thank you Bonita for the job we have done together. I feel now in a better place.

Dynamic, resourceful, knowledgeable and extremely approachable in practising and teaching a variety of specialist techniques to overcome trauma. Bonita has been a significant cog in the wheel on my continual healing journey. Bonita guided me through a series of sessions to address disassociation and trauma and combined with an understanding of the science behind trauma, the understanding of the need to heal the body holistically from a bottom up approach, Bonita taught me a range of appropriate techniques to prepare my body to be physically well enough to revisit my trauma without it being totally overwhelming and returning to shut down. Bonita assessed my progress at every level and practical interventions such as EMDR, Rewind and Kinetic Shift were timed and delivered and were appropriate to my recovery journey and my bodies increasing resilience to both engage and benefit from these techniques. Bonita offers a service that traditional medicine and counselling does not appear to offer, and at a time when I was desperate for an understanding of what my body was going through and how to ‘get better’ to live rather than just survive. Bonita came highly recommended to me. A life of multiple traumatic grief, to the point of disassociation, can’t be solved overnight or quickly, and the body and brain is so complex and has reacted ultimately in such a way to protect you. Having a therapist who not only has experienced trauma and also understands the science and complexity behind the bodies response to it but also who has a range of techniques that can start to prepare you and support you on the journey to healing was the needle in the haystack I didn’t know I was looking for. If you are looking for trauma therapist and are open and committed to your own recovery journey,  I would highly recommend Bonita as a therapist who 100% can work with you and support you on a safe and positive journey to recovery.

When my daughter hit a crisis point after a very stressful year and an injury I knew I needed to get her further help. She was suffering from severe anxiety and stress and was totally unable to make the decisions she needed to make. Her confidence was very low. Luckily for us both, I knew Bonita and the work she did. Bonita saw her for a 2 hour session. That was the turning point for her. She came out from the session, more relaxed, more positive and clearer headed. She was more focused and able to move forward. Bonita gave her exercises and work to continue her progress. She has had a follow-up session which has kept her on track and will have further follow-up sessions to ensure things stay on track. The help from Bonita made all the difference. I’m not sure what we would have done without it. She is now getting on with her life, working towards her goals and more importantly she is coping and more positive. If you need help with anxiety, stress, confidence or self-esteem issues, I highly recommend you see Bonita.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bonita when it comes to coaching your child through difficult times. I contacted Bonita when my daughter was being continually bullied at school, and despite much contact with the school, they were failing to deal with the situation. I was becoming increasingly concerned that my daughter’s mental health was starting to suffer and decided to look for support for her from a professional. Having been the Head of Pastoral care at her school in the past meant she could immediately relate to my daughter and the problems she was having and could offer real coping strategies. Bonita is very friendly and open which meant my daughter was happy discussing things with her. I can honestly say from that first meeting, there was a turning point and both my daughter and I felt supported in a way we hadn’t before-someone ‘had our back’.

Sally
I initially met Bonita at when she delivered a mindset presentation. I approached her afterwards as I struggle with focus and confidence. She offered me a free telephone conversation and now I have had 3 full sessions with her. Bonita has helped me with skills to improve my focus and positivity which in turn help my confidence. When I have a bad day I don’t let it get me down and I can now take the positives from it instead of just focusing on the negatives. The hypnotherapy for anxiety and overthinking has helped to calm down my busy brain. Thank you, Bonita, I am really looking forward to our next session.

Jess
I have worked with Bonita to improve my mindset and prepare for my major competitions using a combination of performance coaching and hypnotherapy. I needed help due to the number of high-level Championships I compete at and had to prepare myself for the UK Under 25 Championships. Bonita has really helped to change my mindset to a more positive one as I tend to focus on the negative areas of my riding, clear goals for every competition and we made changes to the warm up. I now create my circle of excellence in the warm up which has really helped to improve my scores in recent championships. I look forward to Bonita coaching me through the Senior Home International competition with the rest of the team in Humberside at the end of August.

Fran
I attended a workshop run by Bonita on mindset and mind health. It has instantly helped me to change the way I think, not just in my riding but all aspects of my life. Now I can make all my thoughts and sentences positive! I would highly recommend to everyone! The combination of performance coaching and hypnotherapy has been a winner.

Bonita’s approach enabled me to be open and honest about my feelings of anxiety and guilt and the depth of distress I felt surrounding my horse. We worked through what I was hoping to achieve and set a target for summer 2019. We then spent some time setting some tiny achievable targets for my first 6 weeks. Bonita introduced me to visualisation and we used that as an integral part of the initial steps in my first 6 week plan. Whilst the targets included sitting on Scout (my horse) there was no pressure to ride and it was actually not allowed to for the first two weeks- instantly removing all the guilt about not riding. More than anything Bonita recognised my fear was (is) real. She has helped me set small achievable targets and celebrated my successes. My fear hasn’t gone away but I’m slowly moving forward, and my confidence is increasing. Without Bonita I would have stopped riding for good and lost one of the joys of my life.

Julia, NHS Specialist Nurse
I decided to approach Bonita for help towards the end of my maternity with my last baby. I felt my return to work was looming and I had difficulties dealing with returning to work before. Due to stress and apprehension when returning after a previous baby I was worrying that the same would happen this time round. Bonita has guided me to find the root cause for my apprehension and has given me numerous coping techniques to try prior to and once I’ve arrived to work, helping me develop and reidentify confidence in my ability. We also worked through various ways to help maintain a calm mindset both at home and at work including the use of an anchor. Thanks to her support and encouragement I have had a smooth transition back to my work environment and am enjoying my role again.
Alongside the coping and confidence strategy work, Bonita coached me towards a new goal. She has inspired me with her career change and transition story and helped to reinvent myself using my current knowledge and skills. I had looked into starting a new business venture but never thought it could become a reality. This has been accelerated through the use of confidence building, goal setting and chunking helping me realise what I want is achievable and to believe I can actually do it!! I firmly believe that without the use of a coach I would never have contemplated changing the direction of my career. I would have looked back in years to come regretting I never believed in myself enough. As a result of the coaching Bonita has helped to ignite a passion I didn’t realise I had and she has helped unlocked the potential I now see for me to change my life and create the future I want for myself and my family.

Tracey Hinsby, Austrian Alps
I was offered coaching with Bonita and jumped at the chance as we are looking to start a new era with our business. I had plenty of ideas but was finding it hard to focus on the key elements and moving forward with the project. Bonita was great at listening to the ideas then making me really look at them, to see whether they were practical or not, what training was needed to implement them, what resources we already had and get a solid programme in place rather than the 20,000 ideas going no where.
Bonita listens, then directs the thought processes into a more productive style rather than telling you how it should be done. She also has contagious enthusiasm and sunny character that makes everything seem possible while keeping you on track with constructive feedback and reminders on your goals and how to get there. I would recommend Bonita to anyone who needs focus and self-development planning as well as developing change in a business.

Kelly Seager, Director, Seager Home Solutions
When I first started working with Bonita I felt like my entire world was a muddle. I had recently separated from my husband and with three children I felt like I had lost my way. The impact on my business life was significant. I felt overwhelmed and didn’t know how to get back on track. In our first session we worked on my personal life. We captured why I felt disillusioned and Bonita used a few techniques to help me feel in control once again.
The goal setting was so successfully that by our second session we decided to concentrate on my career and Director role within Seager Home Solutions. Within a few coaching sessions, I could focus on the future once again with long and short-term goals driving my decision making. Every session has left me feeling empowered and enthusiastic to take on all the challenges I face, whilst keeping me focused on my objectives. Our sessions were so successful I will be booking Business Success Coaching for key members of my team to help empower them and drive my business forward.

Rachel Kellett, Head of Qualifications and Product Development, AAT
Bonita has been working with me on some workplace coaching since a restructure gave me a new team and new responsibilities. The work she does with me allows a clear outside perspective that enables me to set clear goals for myself that are achievable and allow me to measure success. She is always positive and always approachable and having someone outside of work and family to talk long and short term goals has been invaluable.

Joanne
Bonita is a caring, compassionate therapist and coach who listens carefully. I felt very safe and cared for and the hypnosis and kinetic shift treatment was very powerful, allowing me to let go of an old pain I had been holding onto. Feel tons lighter after this and would highly recommend Bonita to anyone who feels blocked or stuck emotionally.

Choosing to work with Bon has been the best decision I have made. I have tried many different therapies offered through the NHS and after years of suffering have not found anything that has helped. The GP’s answer was more medication.
I decided to work with Bon after a recommendation from a work colleague when I was at my lowest point, going through crisis. After only my first session I walked away feeling like I could finally see a light at the end of that long dark tunnel I’d been walking through for such a long time. After seeing Bon for a few months I am now back on my feet, I feel I’m walking taller and lighter. I’m enjoying life once again, I’m more positive and more importantly my family and friends and noticed a huge change in me. I’m finally really thriving in both my professionally and personally life and most importantly my medication has been reduced. This is honestly all down to Bon. I really can’t recommend her enough and am so grateful for everything she has helped me through.

I went to see Bonita when I’d been asked to travel half way around the world to talk to the UAE about pensions and how they could change them. I don’t mind talking in public but I was somewhat overwhelmed – why had they asked little ol’ me? did I have anything worth saying?! Bon worked with me on remembering what I have achieved and not what could go wrong. It was great. I had a great time in a fabulous country and got great reviews! 🙂

Rachel Curtis
Excellent great technique friendly & welcoming.
Really helps with phobias and resolution of these highly recommend

Louise Bambury
When my daughter began suffering anxiety around travelling away from home, as a family we were at a loss to know how we could help her. Then a friend suggested that we book an appointment with Bon and We haven’t looked back!
Bon has worked wonders, my daughter looks forward to seeing her (she’s has had about 4 sessions now since the start of the year) and has successfully been on family days out, school trips, a weekend break and 2 overnight stays with no panic attacks – something which just wouldn’t have happened prior to her sessions with Bon.
Her confidence has also grown massively and she is now proud to talk about how she feels and shares her experiences with school friends who also struggle with the trials of growing up – it’s lovely to hear how she has supported them and we cannot thank Bon enough for all she has done for our daughter and our whole family.
Thank You Bon!
