Personal Statement about Training Program:
I was a G.P. from 1959 to 1991. In my search of finding out what actually makes people sick or healthy I came across Focusing in 1983. I started practicing it privately and soon integrated it into general practice.
I've been teaching Focusing since 1988, was certified as a trainer in 1992, and have worked from 1993 on in the FocusCentrum DenHaag, together with life and Focusing training companion Christine Langeveld.
Certifying Coordinator since 1995.
Physical dysfunctioning and personal growth have my special interest.
Main interest: spreading Focusing into the world by teaching and training trainers.

A Sample of my Work:
Je eigen wijze lijf weet meer dan je denkt (your selfwilled body knows more than you can think of).
