Rebecca Bonham, MTS

About Me

Rebecca Bonham is a practicum student at YEG Family Counselling. She is a second-year student in the Master of Psychotherapy and Spirituality (MPS) program at St Stephen’s College in Edmonton. If you are looking for a safe and caring person with whom to explore ideas, ask questions, wrestle with the familiar, investigate the unknown, and to get to know yourself better, she is ready to help.

My Ideal Client

Rebecca works with individuals (16+), couples, and families using Narrative Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy.

She especially loves working with:

  • Couples in conflict

  • Those dealing with spiritual or religious trauma, including related to gender, sexuality, purity culture, and perfectionism

  • Women struggling with relational difficulties

Working with Me 

Rebecca has a way of seeing deep into a person very quickly upon meeting them, and her warmth and compassion help her clients feel immediately safe. She uses imagery and metaphor in order to help clients see themselves as separate from their problems. She also uses an integration of thoughts, emotions, and body sensations in order to help clients make meaning out of their in session experiences.

Rebecca's style is slow, purposeful, and warm. Her work in chaplaincy has helped her to be very comfortable working with intense and uncomfortable feelings and leaving space and silence when its needed. 

My Experience

  • Master of Psychotherapy and Spirituality in progress at St. Stephen's College in Edmonton

  • Master of Theological Studies, Taylor Seminary in Edmonton

  • Clinical Pastor Education; Chaplain at AHS / Covenant Health

  • Training in Narrative Therapy

  • Training in Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy

When I'm not at YEG FC...

When she’s not interning as a therapist-in-training, working on her masters degree, or working as a chaplain, Rebecca keeps busy with her four school-age children and their many adventures. Her family of six loves camping, playing games, dirt biking, and movie nights. Her happiest place is the ocean, but any body of water will do to replenish her spirit. Books make her pretty happy, too.
