Focusing has deepened my therapy practice, helping clients (and me) to understand and integrate unconscious parts.

Focusing enables me to live my life and to counsel clients with a deeper level of self-awareness.

Focusing has transformed my life

What I love about Focusing is that it offers a practical way to develop self compassion, to meet all aspects of ourselves, the good, and especially the bad and the ugly!

Focusing has been for me a gentle process that can access to a bodily-felt sense from which meaning arises with intricate detail and empathy.

Learning focusing helped me feel more human – I had feelings too, the unwanted ones shifted when I paid attention to them, and I could empathise with other people’s feelings. Relief!

Focusing has opened the door to my inner world, giving me greater confidence in myself, and a belief in the innate wisdom we all share, when we learn how to find it

Focusing has helped me feel more alive

Focusing, for me, is a doorway to an open, kindly, wise and profound connection to Life.
