Personal Statement about Training Program:
My special interest in Interactive Focusing, which not only enables deeper self-understanding, understanding others but also builds healing relationships between people.
I would like to add that Interactive Focusing is an excellent training tool to acquire empathic listening skills.
I have been educated directly by Janet Klein,PsyD and Mary McGuire, PsyD, the creators of Interactive Focusing and have been certified by Dr.Klein as a teacher and further as a Master Teacher of Interactive Focusing who can give and teacher education for certification.
I have been invited to teach Interactive Focusing just recently in Belgium and three times in China where I also have taught Children and Focusing.

Having been a school counselor for 20 years, I have a lot of experiences in giving workshops to non-focusers such as school teachers, students, parents and general public

A Sample of my Work:
Sound of trickling water
in stillness of mountain
Cooling and vibrating
