Cathy Rowan - Focusing Member in west midlands


Biography

Personal Statement about Training Program:
I work with people individually, by phone and by Skype.
I am passionate about Focusing as it has transformed my life. Prior to a car accident in 1999 I worked in the field of acquired brain injury and I now use my knowledge of neuroscience to support my practice and work.



For over 10 years my life was severely restricted by a chronic pain condition and my life was about micro-managing the pain. Then I discovered Focusing: it has guided me in the process of releasing layers of old trauma locked in my body and so finding a path to wellbeing and thriving. This is an ongoing journey. 



Focusing is the heart of all I do professionally. I combine it with Mindfulness, Reiki, Neuro-education and Positive Psychology. All my work is about helping people live more fully in their body and become more fully who they are.

A Sample of my Work: 
I write an occasional blog:
