How I offer Focusing?
- In person one to one
Marie has spent many years exploring the language of touch and felt sense, the life that we are experiencing below our level of thinking. When we find the doorway into this inner landscape of experiencing, true change can happen. Marie is skilled at providing a non judgmental presence and listening deeply to the underlying experience of whatever is presenting. She has a deep connection and trust in the intelligence of the body wisdom which is always seeking more health and carrying us forward.
Marie is sensitive and empathetic with an ability to promote deep healing. She brings presence and connection to places that are stuck, numb or overcharged so that they can return to ease and flow.
Marie is a supportive, compassionate and knowledgeable teacher who embodies Whole-body Focusing in her approach to teaching. She creates an atmosphere of spacious welcome where you feel held and heard and invited into the space with kindness.

She is very encouraging, supportive, compassionate, passionate and knowledgeable about focusing.
I absolutely love Marie's attunements and settling in meditations that she does as part of the course. I still listen to them now after the course has finished. I find the attunements work as daily meditations and support self-focusing to continue beyond the course.
This course for me, has been really life changing and life giving, in so many ways! I am so pleased that I did it. It was a privilege to have the opportunity to learn focusing over a year, to really allow it and me time to thoroughly learn. We often focus, as people, on the destination and want to achieve the end result as quickly as possible, it was wonderful to have the time to really enjoy the journey! The living forward process really came alive in this course and a deep trust in that process. Marie's way of teaching this course really helped that process come alive and awake in us, it was like a light coming on getting brighter.
Marie has helped me to learn focusing and be more equipped as a focuser and listener. To be ok as I am and that be enough. No need to change anything, but just to meet myself where I am. To really be ok with my individual process and journey. To be seen and show up more fully and authentically.
It's absolutely wonderful when you find a course and teacher that encourages and endorses that in you!
I would whole heartedly recommend focusing and Marie as a teacher for anyone thinking about this course. 💓
I began this Forcusing journey one year ago. It really felt like a special and sacred space was created. The pace , holding and progression felt easy and very supportive. Marie helped me feel safe and at ease to explore the focusing process within my own body from an embodied presence. Learning how to be myself whilst also being in partnership with an other in the wider world and environment was an invaluable tool and something which I still draw on today. Tuning into inner body wisdom to navigate emotions, thoughts and feelings whilst also learning that no matter what life is always showing us the next step and leading us forward once we are able to be present to the process. I have had the pleasure of focusing with some very special people on this course and is something I will carry within my heart forever. Thanks very much Marie for your very special energy that allowed for this to happen. Anita
