Bonnie Hall has a Master’s of Counselling degree, and is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a private practice in Richmond, BC.
Bonnie offers counselling services for people who are feeling frustrated in their relationships with others, or who are unhappy with themselves. When we are out of tune with ourselves or with others, we may feel overwhelmed by strong emotions such as anger, fear, or sadness. We may experience anxiety, depression, and loneliness, along with confusion and an inability to concentrate or make decisions. We can react to relationship difficulties physically as we encounter sleep problems, changes in eating habits, lack of energy, and illness. We may experience a lack of motivation or hope, an inability to find meaning in life, or burn-out. In our couple or family relationships we may notice non-productive patterns of relating to each other, marked by conflict, poor communication, or emotional distance.
You do not have to walk through these challenges alone. Within the context of a safe, supportive, and confidential environment, counselling sessions with Bonnie can be a unique opportunity for you to gain insight into your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, and to learn how to bring harmony into your relationships. Counselling can be a rewarding experience for you as you focus on how you can move closer to inner contentment and clarity of thought, gain a greater sense of self-awareness, manage challenging emotions, find solutions to some problems and acceptance of circumstances that cannot be changed, develop more satisfying relationships, and build hope for the future.
Bonnie’s counselling focus is on working with couples at all stages of their relationship, and with parents and families facing difficulties, particularly in times of transition. She also welcomes individuals who are seeking therapy for a broad range of issues, including anxiety, trauma, depression, self-esteem, and grief or loss. Recognizing that there is a strong correlation between one’s relationship with the self and with others, Bonnie offers insights and practical strategies drawn from a variety of therapeutic modalities to help clients learn how to be true to their authentic selves while maintaining emotionally satisfying connections to others. Bonnie offers clients a warm, supportive, and respectful climate in which clients feel genuinely and deeply heard without judgment. She actively engages in the counselling process through sharing her insights and knowledge with clients, tailoring interventions to meet each client’s unique needs.
Bonnie has been active in the helping professions for over 25 years as an educator and a counsellor. She has been married for 30 years and has raised three children. Her professional and life experiences have allowed her to become intimately acquainted with the challenges of parenting and maintaining balance in a busy family life, of navigating the dance between autonomy and connectedness in a couple relationship, and of adjusting to numerous life transitions. She considers it her passion and privilege to accompany others on their quest for greater relationship satisfaction.
