Focusing Trainer
Focusing Trainer Information:
  • I offer Focusing training in individual phone sessions.
Focusing Trainer Specialty Areas: Spirituality/Meditation, Creative process
Other Focusing Trainer Specialty Areas: Nonviolent Communication
Personal Statement about Training Program:
I offer Focusing 'one to one' sessions that support individuals to deeply listen & tune in to their own felt sense, and unique sense of rightness, with care, respect, & authenticity. With over 20 years of struggles with depression and addictions, it was Focusing that offered an unconditional space for difficult feelings and challenges to receive the deep empathic listening that was longed for. This empathic listening, unconditional acceptance, learning to find your own ground and follow your inherent wisdom, are just some of what Focusing can bring, and which I wish to share with others through personal 'one to one' Focusing sessions and group workshops.

As a certified Nonviolent Communication Trainer I find Focusing's deep non-judgmental inner listening an incredible support in deepening inner & outer empathic listening, & respectful authentic communication with others.

A Sample of my Work:
'Focusing offers a supported inner space to gently listen to the whole of our being. Places deeply buried & cut off are invited to be heard, known & felt, enabling their natural life energy to be lived, expressed & carried forward in nourishing ways that support the whole of an individual. From this place of deep inner listening, change is not forced but organically flows from the body's inherent wisdom and knowing of the next right steps, leading to authentic & sustained change'. - Amanda Raine

'I am so grateful for your skill and care Amanda I felt really safe to go into my vulnerable places, and feel very moved by the deep shift in me, even from one session.' - P. Green

'I left the workshop feeling rejuvenated and mysteriously resolved about some issues I had been facing' - Prachi
