Focusing Practitioner Training

Skype Worldwide

Professional Training Workshop/Event

Do you love Focusing, and want to share this valuable resource with others?
Starting September. A new online professional training for people who have done the basic course.
This is for you if you have learnt the basics of Focusing and you know how much it has given you already, and what it means to you in your life. This is an opportunity for you to take it further, deepen your understanding, and be able to offer Focusing sessions to others. It will be of interest to you if you already work with others, especially in a professional capacity.
Tuesday afternoons, 3, 10, 17 and 24 September gets you started. And there is more to follow.
During the programme, you get support from a small group of fellow trainees as well as individual mentoring from two dedicated Mentors. There are three training modules, spread throughout the year, specialist advanced trainings, and you assist on the basic course as an advanced student. There is home study and written work, as well as individual Focusing sessions with your Mentors.

Beyond what has already been described above, here is a list of learning outcomes:

  • Listening/reflecting skills.
  • Guiding skills.
  • Relationship with clients.
  • Ethics.
  • General knowledge/understanding of Focusing.
  • Exploration of the use of Focusing in an area of personal interest (e.g. counselling, creativity).
  • Self-employment skills.

See my web site, and contact me directly for more information, and to apply for the training programme.

The British Focusing Association (BFA) Practitioner Training Programme enables you to work professionally with Focusing. You will learn how to integrate Focusing into your exising professional field, and you will also be able to offer individual Focusing sessions to the public for a fee.

The training includes three training modules, spread throughout the year; specialist advanced trainings; and you also get to assist on Levels 1  and 2 as an advanced student.

A key component of the course is to support your growth as a person as well as a Practitioner of Focusing. BFA is committed to allowing only fully qualified people to become Focusing Practitioners. Skills and experience are the key requisites for people to become Focusing Practitioners.

There is supported home study and written work, as well as individual Focusing sessions with your Mentors. The whole training will probably take you about a year to eighteen months.

Prerequisites: The Focusing Skills Certificate course, or equivalent 60 hours training, plus your ongoing Focusing Partnership practice.
