Honni Hayton Counselling

Counsellor and EMDR Therapist

 Dedicated to your journey of self-discovery and empowerment, I’m Honni Hayton—a registered counsellor with over two decades of experience in guiding individuals towards their brightest potential. My passion lies in helping you, as an individual, carve your unique path to a more fulfilling life.


As a counsellor, my focus centers around you—your needs, your comfort, and your growth. Whether you prefer the convenience of online sessions within your personal space or the familiarity of in-person consultations at my Boonah practice, I’m here to provide unwavering support.

For couples seeking to rekindle happiness and deepen their bond, I offer specialised relationship counselling. Additionally, I offer premarital counselling and marriage preparation for couples, ensuring a strong foundation for a successful and harmonious journey ahead.

Furthermore, I am proud to be an EMDR therapist serving clients all over Australia.  Through EMDR therapy, I help individuals liberate themselves from the chains of past traumas, empowering them to break free from limiting patterns.

Witnessing my clients flourish, I’ve seen the transformative power of counselling. From heightened confidence and improved self-esteem to enhanced well-being, sharper clarity, and enriched relationships, my clients have embraced positive change in numerous facets of their lives. A renewed sense of purpose and deeper meaning often follow suit.

Are you ready to embrace positive change? Reach out to me today and embark on the path to living your best life. Your transformation begins now. 

I help people thrive, by guiding them through transformative counselling and EMDR therapy, fostering increased confidence, healthier relationships, and a more fulfilling life journey.

Training and Credentials

After graduating from USQ with a Psychology degree in 1992, Honni began her career as a Youth Worker at a crisis shelter for homeless teenagers in Brisbane city. She later completed a Graduate Diploma in Counselling at CHC. She is a Clinical Counsellor registered with PACFA (Psychotherapist and Counsellors Federation of Australia).

Honni has undertaken extra training to become an Accredited EMDR Therapist, registered with EMDRAA.

Holistic Framework

Under Honni’s thoughtful guidance, clients are encouraged to practice intentional self-care in five key areas of their lives using a clear ‘STEPS’ framework. This is where each aspect of self-care is represented: Social, Thinking, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual. Supported by the STEPS framework, Honni’s clients soon experience a level of emotional wellbeing and self-awareness that naturally pave the way for positive personal growth.

EMDR Therapist

Honni assists her clients to let go of past events that obstruct their thinking. She guides them in a thorough exploration of their present life circumstances so they can develop strategies for achieving the future they want. In appropriate circumstances, Honni uses powerful Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. During EMDR, carefully chosen target memories are selected for re-processing by simulating eye movements. After processing, the memories are not forgotten but no longer have such a negative impact on a client’s life.

Relationship Counsellor

Completing a Relationship Check-up Questionnaire helps Honni identify areas in a relationship that need attention. The couple then work with Honni to examine natural relationship stages and unhelpful relationship myths. They develop effective communication strategies including setting comfortable boundaries; and learning to rekindle passion. This may also include identifying patterns in a client’s life that are not conducive to good relationships and developing strategies to change them.
