About me

Hello, welcome to my profile. My name is Bonnie and I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor working with adults and young people. I offer short term counselling and long term, open ended therapy. Short term counselling can be beneficial for those who wish to deal with a specific issue such as anxiety, or a recent bereavement. Long term therapy is useful for those who wish to work deeper, perhaps with issues they have been living with for most of their lives, or for the purpose of self development. Often people find themselves in repeated situations where they are emotionally compromised. Working deeper allows exploration of why this is so, and works towards finding a way to bring change to habitual behaviour which may be detrimental or which may prevent growth, both emotionally and/or psychologically. It may also be that one simply needs someone to talk to, who will listen emphatically and without judgement.

Counselling Adults

Some of the areas that I work with:

Abuse: physical, sexual, domestic, emotional, psychological, financial
Loss or bereavement
Low self esteem
Anxiety, panic attacks
Suicide ideation
Diagnosis of/living with illness and/or disability
Working through trauma
Family/relationship issues
Please see below for other areas I can help with

Confidentiality. Non-judgement. Patience. Empathy

Counselling Young People

One of the areas I specialise in is working with young people from age 11 and upwards.
Working with young people has allowed me to understand the many challenges that they face in these current times. Many issues can be overwhelming for the younger client, and for their parents, close family and friends. Often it is extremely difficult for a young person to express what they are feeling or to understand why they feel the way that they do and families don't always know where to turn. Knowing that a young person has an empathic listener in a safe and confidential environment to help them through difficult times is a great comfort and support, moreover for the clients themselves.

Some of the areas that I work with:

Bullying, face to face and/or cyber
Body dismorphia
Eating disorders
Self harm
Suicide ideation
Internet grooming
Friendship problems
Family separation/divorce

I also offer Family Therapy. Please enquire for details.

Confidentiality. Non-judgement. Patience. Empathy

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Wheelchair user access
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.

My practice at Trestle Arts Base has wheelchair access and has a disabled toilet. There is free parking available and good motorway links and bus links from St Albans City Station and St Albans Abbey Station.
