Personal Statement about Training Program:
Focusing is a method for personal and communal health, growth and flourishing and benefits any working processes because it helps to find the “core” of the thing at issue. This includes the creative processes of research, writing and thinking. Focusing and its integration into daily life gives a clarified sense of yourself, your own desires and pursuits, protects you from external demands, stress, sicknesses and projections. The focusing process always carries also the new in addition to the lived situations and experiences, and the new is born from the familiar in a very refreshing, unexpected and empowering way. I offer guided Focusing/Listening sessions and teach Focusing Basics and Focusing on specific topics as tailored for individuals and professionals, and workshops.
I have been trained,mentored and certified by Coordinator Birte Robins (Scandinavian Focusing Institute, Denmark)

A Sample of my Work:
I believe in facilitating growth by creating an appropriate atmosphere for development and evolution. This is an ongoing process, and I believe in allowing oneself to constantly seek and sketch instead of holding fast to unhelpful expectations that can limit dynamic personal development and growth.
