A Sample of my Work:
Personal Statement about my own Training Program:
I was trained/Certified as a Professional Focusing Trainer in 1989 from the Focusing Institute, Chicago-people, and Trainers like Gene Gendlin, Mary McQuire, Ann Weiser Cornell, Mary Armstrong, Bala Jason + many more, at a stay at the Focusing Institute & I was from then onwards, mentored & trained by then Director Mary MacQuire, until May 1993, when I again went to Chicago and Certified as Coordinator working with Melanie, Janet Klein, Gene Gendlin & Mary McQuire.
Already from day one, in late 1989, once back home in Denmark, I started teaching Focusing in Norway, Sweden, Finland & Denmark, to Individuals, in Workshops & in Changes Groups.
For 6 Years, I went twice a year and spend 2 long Weeks each time in Stockholm teaching Swedes. Still Teaches a lot of Swedes, now most of them Training them to be Trainers & as well as 1 Coordinator.


My Publications:
Samples of my Work: The Focusing Book, by E.T.GENDLIN, I have Revised & Reprintet into Danish, Swedish and Finnish:
I have worked on a new revised Edition - a reprinting and updated Version, on both the Danish & the Swedish Focusing book, where Gendlin was so generous, as in 2005 to write for us “Scandinavians” a new Foreword to both these 2 books and now as well, its being used in the Finnish Translation, that I urged my Finnish Students to sort out, & which recently has been Published & can be bought through Bookstores and my Finnish Trainers.
This brand new Finnish Edition has just come out, as well as has 2 new Trainers who recently created a Focusing Institute in Finland.

The Danish and the Swedish Focusing books by Gendlin are sold through the Biggest Danish Book-WebShop(www.williamdam.dk), from a Bookshop in Stockholm & via a Coordinator in Sweden.
Some involvement into Research: I am Researching in the Field of Focusing & Quantum Energy Medicine. I have made connections with a Researcher and Dr. who works at both a University in the UK and in India.
