john threadgold - Focusing Member in london


When I first came across focusing I felt that I had struck gold. Focusing was a way for me to grow as a person, and be more whole, and for me more genuine or congruent, for me to be able to accept myself and others without conditions attached. For me focusing is not simply a tool but a way of life.

I have counselled who have faced such issues a depression, suicidal tendencies, childhood abuse, (emotional physical and sexual), addiction, anger management, bereavement, and other issues. I have seen people, begin to feel better about themselves, and make constructive changes to their lives. I am accredited by the BACP to offer Counselling and {psychotherapy, and am recognised by the Focusing Institute as a Focusing Teacher and therapist.

What I'm Doing Now

I offer Focusing-Oriented Counselling and Psychotherapy, Focusing-oriented supervision. I also run Introductory Focusing courses for everyone, as well as specialist Focusing-Oriented Therapy courses for therapists. I also offer Secondary Mentoring Services for people on the Focusing-Practitioner Program. I have an MA in Focusing and Experiential Psychotherapy and a specialist interest in the integration of Focusing into your existing Counselling-psychotherapy theory and practice.Look forward to hearing from you !
