Personal Statement about Training Program:
I am a registered Counsellor with NZAC (New Zealand Association of Counselling) working in Private Practice as a FOT and Art Therapy in Palmerston North New Zealand from 1996- 2018. Presently I am a member of the Focusing Institute and The Focusing Institute Membership Committee.
My Focusing training with Nada began, by attending 5 workshops run by Nada Lou, in Auckland and Palmerston North between 1997- 2011. I felt inspired to train with Nada, discovering Focusing as a homecoming, bringing meaning and purpose in my personal life and my work as a Therapist. I am truly passionate in regards to all aspects of Focusing and the philosophy of the Implicit, and TAE.
I attended a MINDBODY Conference in Auckland NZ in 2008 where Joan Klagsbrun was the keynote speaker. Later at Summer School in 2011 I attended Joan’s class on Creativity and later Spirituality in 2016.
I love creative pursuits,

A Sample of my Work:
A verse written by Heather after the Focusing Conference in Lucerne Switzerland 2013,
The Theme was Homecoming.......
This verse incapsulates the deep sense of belonging with my family and the Focusing Institute Family


I arrived back home
with treasured memories
So rich, so full
A blessed journey
tired and weary,
So glad to be home,
I mused of kissing the ground
When back in Aotearoa
I stepped off the plane
and there,
Standing quietly with smiles,
And tears,
Then squeals of delight
There stood my Family,
I did not kiss the ground,
we embraced
Arriving home
Safe, secure, warm
With a deep sense of belonging
Being one
Joy and elation
Gratitude abounds
A thoroughly Blessed,
