Personal Statement about Training Program:
Focusing has dramatically changed my life. It has helped to heal me from trauma, guided me through recovery, and set me on a path to deeper connection with myself and others.

Being deeply heard (received) by another person, in a Focusing way, is a profound experience, one which I am still integrating into my life in new and fresh ways. Focusing continues to nourish my gifts and companions me in my growing edges.

Focusing for over 20 years, I have used it in business and my professional social work practice finding it enhances many other helpful things that people already know.

I am passionate about teaching Focusing and helping to integrate it into our relationships with our deeper self and others, in many different fields of endeavour.

I look forward to meeting you. James.
