” If there is something hauntingly beautiful or impressive in your dream, just honour it, respect it, recall it, sense it with your body. More will come “

– Eugene Gendlin

Intention of the programme

For me, it is of great importance that your path starts with the space it needs before you embark on the route. This is why I would like to meet with you on a one-to-one session to go through our felt sense of getting involved in this journey together before the course starts. We can explore different areas that you or I might be interested in exploring in relation to the course, Focusing on your interests and how to bring Focusing into your practice, work, life, and society. We can spend some time exchanging listening and Focusing with each other.

Prerequisites to join this programme

You will need to have finished the Focusing Skills course or equivalent.

We will have a one-to-one session before the programme starts.

Programme Details – Timing & Rhythm

It is just as natural that your learning experience, your integration, and understanding will have its own rhythm. It is my personal interest that this remains as sacred as life is. Your process will guide you and me to be there, within the time it needs.

At the same time, the programme will be given within 12 months, and the apprenticeship-mentorship within 18 months. After this time if more time is needed, I will be able to be there for you and your process, and we can arrange together a further accompaniment.

One of the most important aspects to become a certified Focusing Professional is that you can sense your readiness within you and that you are in contact with your Focusing forward flow and how it wishes to present to the world. Your certification will be awarded when we reach a common ground of readiness by you, me, your secondary mentor, and your fellow trainees.

On completion you will be able to:

  • Introduce people to Focusing
  • Offer sessions as a listener/guide – companioning one to one
  • Teaching Focusing one to one
  • Include Focusing in your practice ( Focusing oriented counsellor, Yoga teacher, Therapist, Coach, Artist, Facilitator, Mediator, etc )

Programme framework


  • 12 online seminars from September 2023 to September 2024 ( monthly of 3 hours of duration )
  • 3 – 3 day retreats throughout the year in the west of Ireland ( November, March, September)
  • 15 one-to-one mentoring sessions online
  • Peer support group ongoing throughout the training
  • Focusing partnership practice weekly

I want to highlight that the importance of your own circumstances and your own learning path will guide us to approach each stage of the way with openness and flexibility to meet your own unique territory.


You can register for the programme once we have had our one-to-one exploration.

I ask for a registration fee of €200 as numbers are limited. I only take up to 8 people on the course.

The cost of the whole training is €2250- €1850

If you are currently in full-time employment I would ask you to pay the full amount for the course.
