Not sure what course is for you?

If you are new to Focusing then it’s best to start with a course aimed at beginners. These can be stand alone courses or offered as part of the BFA skills certificate. Either will equip you to take Focusing into a partnership setting and offer tools and insights into using Focusing in your own life.

For a more complete foundation course in Focusing, take the BFA skills certificate. This is a thorough training in the art of Focusing and Listening (or being a companion). It comprises of around 50-60 hours of training and can be completed online or through in person workshops. Usually it takes a few months to complete and each teacher offers a unique but complete set of skills around Focusing and Listening.

If you already know the basics of Focusing then you may want take a look at our special interest courses – delving into areas of Focusing practice such as Focusing and Dreams or Wholebody Focusing.
