Focusing for Healthcare workers; Focusing Skills Level 1

13th May 2023 - 14th May 2023 College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, RG1 7SB, Reading

Focusing Skills Certificate Workshop/Event

In May and June 2023 I am teaching two Focusing workshops (Focusing Skills levels one and two). Over two weekends I will teach you the basics of Focusing and enable you to start to Focus alone and/or with a companion. What you learn on these courses will allow you to tune into your body’s messages and enable it to compassionately communicate with you; this in turn teaches you to be more compassionate towards others as well as yourself and to resolve many issues where you have previously felt stuck.

The courses will also help you to gain a better sense of your patients, have more certainty in your healthcare work and be more intuitive in your clinical setting.

Focusing can support our healthcare work by enabling us to:

  • Tune into ourselves and become clearer about our core issues when diagnosing, treatment planning and treating
  • Improve our intuition in diagnosis and treatment
  • Discover new and unexpected solutions when we feel stuck with a patient
  • Become more present in the treatment room
  • Help patients to deal with overwhelming feelings
  • Support our ability to safely deal with our own uncomfortable feelings.

About Me   I’m a Focusing trainer with the British Focusing Association (BFA) and the International Focusing Institute and have taught courses since 2010. I’m also an acupuncturist and co-founder and president of the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, where I continue to teach and supervise BSc students and treat patients. I completed an MSc in Mindfulness at Coventry University in 2018 (where I also taught Focusing!)

Booking: If you are interested in this course, please email Angie at or phone 07901 938581.

Cost:  £300 for all 4 days. There will also be optional Wednesday evening online drop-in dates between these weekends and this covers the optional online sessions. There will be an opportunity to continue with an online course after these dates and complete the British Focusing Association Focusing Skills Course levels 3&4.
