liz orrell - Focusing Member in west midlands
I describe Focusing as the “final piece of the jigsaw”. I have found it to be the most powerful yet gentle approach to personal growth and emotional healing I have encountered in 30 years working in the Therapy, Training, Management and Personal Development field.
Training as a Person Centred Therapist, I witnessed the power of listening, being heard and received just as we are. Since learning Focusing I have realized I was hearing the messages my body was sending me, but I wasn’t fully listening to them. Focusing has given me the gift of learning to listen to the inner knowing and wisdom of my body, to really listen to myself.
Focusing has enabled me to be with parts of myself that simply wished to be heard without the expectation of any change being wanted or needed. Here I found the essence of Focusing – if I stop trying to make something change and simply meet it where it is, then it will change if it needs to. Often it is content just to be heard and acknowledged.
I am passionate about Focusing - the new possibilities and ways of being it brings for each of us. I appreciate the opportunity to share this with other people.
I offer one to one Focusing sessions by Skype, Phone and Face to Face in Kenilworth, Warwickshire.
I am completing the BFA Trainer programme, offering the 5 BFA Focusing Skills Certificate workshops in Kenilworth, Warwickshire.
I offer talks to Groups and Therapists about Focusing.
I coordinate the West Midlands Focusing Circle. We aim to meet for a morning of Focusing every 2 – 3 months at my house in Kenilworth.
If you live or work in the midlands and would like to run a workshop or have a face to face session but can’t get to Kenilworth, please contact me
