How I offer Focusing:
- In Person
Eugene Gendlin developed the practice of Focusing as a means of recognising and engaging with the felt sense so that life can be lived forward. He suggested that, Everything goes better with Focusing. I have experienced the truth of this statement and I have seen it in many others. Now, I offer people the opportunity to learn Focusing so that they can experience this for themselves.
I have been teaching Focusing to individuals and groups for over 15 years. Before retiring from full-time work, I integrated Focusing into my work as a primary school teacher and now, I incorporate it into my work as a psychotherapist, as a forest therapy guide and as a spiritual companion and also into my meditation practice.
I teach foundational and advanced courses/workshops in Focusing and accompany students towards certification as Certified Focusing Professionals or/and Focusing Trainers. As a certifying coordinator with the International Focusing Institute (TIFI). I recommend Focusing students, who have completed their training, to TIFI for accreditation.
In addition, I am currently a member of the training team for the Advanced and Certification Weeklong, TIFI's annual flagship event. I also offer courses/workshops on Focusing and Children, Focusing and Spirituality, Focusing and Nature, and Focusing and Counselling/Psychotherapy. As part of my study for an MA in Applied Spirituality, I wrote my research thesis on 'Making Space for the More; Focusing as embodied spiritual practice'.
