- Wholebody Focusing
- Focusing Oriented counselling
I am a body-oriented psychotherapist and somatic coach, working at depth, weaving focusing in to my professional and personal life.
What services do I offer?
I offer psychotherapy, somatic coaching and therapeutic-coaching, all interwoven with focusing to support the "living forward" energy of which Gendlin speaks. I have many years experience working with clients internationally on zoom, and occasionally meet clients face to face in London.
My best work is with those clients who have a deep interest in personal development, supported by a commitment to the all-important homework between sessions to facilitate rich self-awareness. In addition, I offer secondary mentorship to those in the process of focusing certification.
If you are interested in learning more about how I work, particularly in the domain of trauma and addiction, you may be interested in my first book: "Love and Imperfection: A Therapist's Story." (Available through my website and on Amazon).
My background in Focusing
I began training with Jerry Conway in 2010, and subsequently shifted to Wholebody Focusing with Kay Hoffman, reflecting my interest in the holistic, whole-body approach already foundational to my somatic work. With Kay and Ann Weiser-Cornell for mentors, I completed my Focusing Practitioner training in 2018 and continue to pursue learning and development opportunities. Having studied Gendlin's "Experiencing and the Creation of Meaning" with a colleague, we have now transferred our attention to "A Process Model."
