Bonita Pafford has over 25 years of experience as a teacher at the high school and college levels. She holds numerous degrees (B.A., B. Ed., BRLS and M. Ed.) as well as many additional qualifications such as Reading and Special Education Specialist and Guidance Counselor.

She found the value of a meditation and mindfulness practice in calming and relaxing both body and mind. After learning first hand about the positive power of self compassion and humour Bonita has been drawn to helping her clients overcome changes and challenges in life circumstances and setting new goals so that they can once again live purposeful, joy-filled lives, while honouring their past. Additional training and certification obtained in the following:
The power to Choose Something Different
Meditation and Mindfulness
Emotional Freedom Technique
Happiness Life Coach
Vision Board Workshop Facilitator
Life Coach / Traumatic Brain Injury Coach
Life Coaching is a powerful methodology designed to take you from where you are today to where you want to be. Many people need another set of eyes or ideas to help them make that shift. Sometimes it involves small adjustments while other times it will be major upheavals. The coach provides frameworks, suggestions and exercises to help the client move to the desired destination.
With Traumatic Brain Injury / Acquired Brain Injury Coaching – the client has ended up in a position they may not have the strength nor skill set to deal with. It is their new, and generally unwanted, life. As their coach I connect them with resources, additional treatments and facilitators that can help to guide them into and through their new life. I also use many of the methods I personally utilized to help in my own recovery and adjustment.
Vision Board / Dream Board Workshops
What is a Vision Board? It’s a way to get clear about what you want to create in your life; to anchor to your dreams and allow the magic of manifestation to work for YOU! Join Bonita at Now & Zen Mindfulness & Meditation in Grimsby for a full day of fun and Vision Board creation. Bonita is also available to take the workshop to you. Do you have a group getting together that would enjoy a day or half day of planning and manifestation? Bachelorette party? Office party? Retirement? Baby Shower? Graduation? Whatever the event, you supply the location and she can bring the materials.
EFT (Tapping) Emotional Freedom Technique
EFT (Tapping) Emotional Freedom Technique is a self-help technique that involves tapping near the end points of “energy meridians” located around the body in order to reduce tension and promote a deeper mind-body connection. This technique goes by a few different names, including Emotional Freedom Technique, EFT Tapping or simply Tapping. Bonita will teach you how to use this valuable technique to help you deal with the stressors in your life.
