I first came across Focusing during my psychotherapy training in the early 1990s and found it took me a while to get my head-and-body around it. Despite a background in psychotherapy and Buddhist meditation, it wasn’t until I met Focusing that I really discovered what it meant to make a relationship with feelings and experiences, rather than being immersed in them or detached from them. As I began to learn it, I realised that this gentle but powerful process can bring about real inner shifts. Even when parts of me felt bad, I saw that being with them in this way felt good.
I trained with Barbara McGavin in Inner Relationship Focusing. I have found Focusing highly compatible with both insight meditation and my work as a psychotherapist. My own practice of Focusing continues to be an important part of my inner journey.
