11th November 2020 - 2nd December 2020 Online
Focusing Skills Certificate Online
Focusing is a gentle way of paying ourselves attention and deepening self-awareness. It trusts that our body knows and can tell us what we need for physical and emotional health.
During Level three, participants will continue with Focusing practice, taking turns to Focus and Companion. Exercises are designed to support working at a deeper level. At the same time, the Focuser is always in charge of their session and each person is encouraged to work at their own pace.
Focusing partnerships will be encouraged and there will be opportunities to discuss your experiences of Focusing and Companioning.
There will be a combination of theory, group discussion, exercises and Focusing practice. The course is divided into four parts, each with a particular theme as follows:
PART 1 – During part 1 we revisit the stages in a Focusing session, paying particular attention to the first stage. You will be given several examples of different types of lead in, with time for practice. There will also be a Wholebody Focusing Exercise.
PART 2 – We consider the role of the Companion in more depth. You will learn about supportive suggestions which the Companion can offer to the Focuser.
PART 3 – I will introduce suggestions that can be helpful at the making contact and settling in stages. We also revisit partial selves and Companioning with delicate parts.
PART 4 – During part 4 we concentrate upon suggestions that can be helpful at the deepening and ending stages of a Focusing session. There will be a Wholebody Focusing Exercise and time for an ending.
