My background in Focusing

After reading the Focusing book by Eugene Gendlin, I went on a Focusing course in January 2005 and never looked back. I experienced more shifts in my issues over one weekend than I had with several years of conventional talking therapy. I went on to complete a Focusing skills certificate and an MA in Focusing and Experiential psychotherapy. I am also a Trauma informed focusing therapist and using Trauma training and focusing have helped people heal from Complex PTSD.
