Addie Van Der Kooy - Focusing Member in south west
I have been fortunate to work closely for many years with Kevin McEvenue, the founder of Wholebody Focusing (WBF). First as his client and later as co-presenter of many WBF workshops and retreats in the UK. We also produced the WBF workbook “Focusing With Your Whole Body”.
I am registered with The International Focusing Institute (TIFI) as a Professional Teacher/Trainer in WBF and am a BFA member.
As a WBF teacher I place a lot of emphasis on the experience of your whole body as a safe, grounded and alive context into which suffering places inside you can feel welcomed and be heard. And as they are, they can awaken to new possibilities of healing.
To physically sense the grounded aliveness of your own Presence whilst also welcoming the suffering inside, creates a potent dynamic inside you in which deep healing shifts can take place. I know this from my own experience as someone who suffered from severe neck pains due to deeply embedded trauma places. This “holding both” can also lead to an experience of self-realisation and awaken you to a deep knowing of who you are in essence.
What I'm Doing Now
• Individual sessions, either on-line (Skype or Zoom), by phone or face-to-face.
• A 1:1WBF Foundation Course based on the workbook “Focusing With Your Whole Body”.
• I provide training for the internationally recognized WBF Trainer (Teacher) Certificate, issued by the TIFI.
• Webinars for small groups on themes like “Coming to Rest in Presence” and “Deepening Presence”.
