Personal Statement about Training Program:
I combine Focusing with everything I do. I also teach Nonviolent Communication (certified in 2004) and Mindfulness (practiced since 1983), and Focusing underpins and inspires my practice. I also practise Wholebody Focusing and Authentic Movement. And I have a special interest in Focusing and dreams, and lucid dreaming.
