ildiko davis - Focusing Member in english speakers abroad
Discovering Focusing was one of those naturally occuring focusing moments for me: I was instantly resonating with Gendlin's book about focusing, when I first came across it. As a Humanistic Counsellor, I was immediately intrigued by the seemingly 'magic' way to assist healing, inner growth and to access those hard to reach stuck places that often keep people's natural growth blocked. I was able to facilitate Focusing with some of my counselling clients fairly quickly, and was very impressed with the effectiveness of this approach. Witnessing the amazing power of Focusing transformed my view about therapy completely. I understood finally that healing happens when we can truly listen to our inner experience, and be with it in a certain way that is supportive and non-manipulative. Facilitating this became the cornerstone of my work with clients now and brought more joy and clarity to my counselling practice.
I was also eager to learn using Focusing for my own healing and personal growth. I started with Focusing workshops, then training as a Focusing Practitioner and having Focusing Oriented Therapy. Looking back, I can see that having a challenging time personally with Focusing, has made me persevere and learn a lot about habits and attitudes that can get in the way of the unfolding of our Focusing process. I also became very interested in understanding how past traumas can impact our Focusing experience. I feel that my struggles about Focusing give me useful insights when teaching others to benefit from it.
I am very keen to incorporate Focusing and Focusing attitudes not just into my work and journey of personal growth, but into my daily life and everyday encounters with others. This also means that I am interested not just in the intentional practice of using Focusing steps, but in facilitating naturally occurring focusing moments by working with people's existing natural focusing skills.
What I'm Doing Now
I offer one to one Focusing lessons, Guided Focusing sessions and Focusing Oriented Counselling sessions via online videolink ( Skype or Zoom). I am especially interested to work with highly sensitive or creative people, who are interested in using Focusing for their personal growth.
