The only thing you are missing is.........

TOYS!!!!!!!!!!!

I do believe more toys are in order! Try things with bells, and things s/he can shred. They LOVE destroying things.

Like Gabby suggested TOYS are definitely good
Spending more time with her or putting on a tv or radio when she is alone should also amuse her and make her happier. From mine and others experience, most female budgies love shredding. Paper, toys, bark...anythings!!!
You can also try using some millet spray or treats and "hide" them in her toys so she will be busy trying to find it, some budgies love those types of toys.

That's a good thing! As us bird/parrot people say, "A toy destroyed is a toy enjoyed!" If she's shredding it, I doubt she's afraid of it. Hens are chewers. They will chew anything and everything they can. The swing is a good start though! And if you spend a lot of time out with her, she doesn't need as many toys. Not to say she doesn't need toys, just not as many.

That's good that you don't force her to do anything. It shows her she can trust you.

I was waiting for Deborah to give you that list!
