Personal Statement about Training Program:
I learned Focusing in a hard time of my live, suffering depression and anxiety. I was so impressed of the working of connecting with the inside trouble in myself (and in other students) that I never stopped again. After about 20 years of studying and practicing I started my own Focusing Practice. This has been very successfully and I am enjoying it every day. I still get impressed by the grace and the richness this focusing process brings. I love the individual sessions, so intense, so gracious and so joyful. I love the teaching, the surprises, the discoveries and the fruitful atmosphere Focusing brings. Focusing is a gift to caretakers (for their own healing and growth) and to their clients. I love the international exchange, the wonder of intercultural connecting and crossing.

A Sample of my Work:
Focusing as a force for peace:

If there is light in the soul, there will be beauty in the person.
If there is beauty in the person, there will be harmony in the house.
If there is harmony in the house, there will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.
