Personal Statement about Training Program:
I have been working for many years with Kevin McEvenue, founder of Whole Body Focusing(WBF). I offer a WBF Foundation Course which is based on the WBF manual 'Focusing With Your Whole Body', which Kevin and I produced. I also offer 1:1 training in becoming a TFI certified WBF Trainer.

My emphasis is very much on bringing a wholebody experience of Presence into Focusing - a bodily felt sense of the aliveness of yourself as 'Me Here Now' can then be there beside the places in you that are suffering. This enables you to allow both felt senses to be held in your awareness with 'equal positive regard'. This opens the door for deep, life-changing healing and transformation. I know this from my own experience as someone who severely suffered from chronic pain due to deeply embedded trauma places. These deep,healing shifts awaken you to a deep knowing of who you naturally are.

A Sample of my Work:
'Your grounded embodied Presence becomes a well-prepared and safe Home. The suffering place can now see the welcoming lights of Home, like a beacon in the dark. This sets in motion a process of Homecoming in which the suffering place awakens to its innate knowing of how to move forward in this healing journey' - Addie van der Kooy in WBF workbook 'Focusing With Your Whole Body'
