Core Counselling & Therapy

Our Therapists

Bonita Dennison

I work as a Person Centered Therapist, while using an Integrative approach.

This means that I draw from several theories of Counselling and Psychotherapy including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Internal Family Systems (IFS), to meet your therapy goals in a safe space.

As part of my Continuing Professional Development requirement with The Irish Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (, I am continually upskilling and completing ongoing professional development courses. These include Anxiety Issues, Depression, Trauma, LGBTQ Awareness, Pregnancy & Parenting Issues and ongoing Professional Supervision to ensure professional competence.

I also work as a mental health trainer with Aware, delivering their CBT based courses, namely Life Skills, Living Well with Bi-Polar Disorder and the Relatives & Friends Programme.

Additionally, I have a professional background of over 15 years, working in Child and Family Work/Social Care.
