All of our members offer one to one Focusing sessions. Please contact them directly ( See contact details in our directory ). You can find a variety of courses and events here on this page for learning or deepening Focusing.

If you are new to Focusing then it’s best to start with a course aimed at beginners. These can be stand-alone introductory courses or, for a complete foundation course in Focusing, take a BFA Focusing skills course. This is a thorough training in the art of Focusing and active listening.

If you already know the basics of Focusing then you may want to delve into areas of Focusing practice such as Focusing and Dreams, Thinking at the Edge, Children Focusing, Focusing for writing.

These courses comprise 60 hours of training and will equip you to focus and listen in Focusing partnerships, which are peer focusing/listening exchanges. They also offer practices and insights for using Focusing and listening in your everyday life. These BFA certificate courses are divided into five sections, which are referred to (varying teacher to teacher) as levels, modules, blocks, workshops and parts. Courses are offered online, in-person and as a combination of the two. Look for a format that suits your availability. A whole course takes around 6 to 12 months to complete and each teacher offers their own unique but complete coverage of the skills required for you to feel confident in Focusing and listening in peer exchanges.
