I will be running the Focusing Skills Certificate ONLINE this year along with a range of short courses. So if you are looking for something new for your personal and professional development why not consider getting a full grounding in the Focusing process with the Focusing Skills Certificate, exploring how an embodied approach can enhance your confidence in your career or get an introduction to ways Focusing might complement your client work.

What is Focusing? What is the felt sense? You will be introduced to the Focusing process and the particular way of Focusing Listening. This highly experiential workshop will help you learn to listen to your body and trust the wisdom it can share with you. In the optional second day we explore the Focusing attitude and the practice of ‘clearing a space’. After the two days you should have the skills to enter a Focusing-Listening partnership.
