Personal Statement about Training Program:
Focusing has enriched every aspect of my life and has helped me to find and express what is the most alive and essential within myself. For me, the Focusing process is the ultimate method of transformation and a way of living authentic life that is so easy to incorporate into every day life. The ideas and application of Focusing have been central to my psychotherapy practice. As a result, I am passionate and excited to work with everyone who is open to growing, exploring and healing.
I have substantial experience in teaching Focusing to students of counselling in a Advanced Diploma and Bachelor Degree courses. I teach Focusing fundamentals in a workshop format in three levels. The workshops run Friday- Sunday. I also run Focusing practice, study and supervision monthly groups, and offer guided individual Focusing sessions.
