My role as a Person Centred Counsellor, Holistic Therapist and Focusing Practitioner is so rewarding as I see people making the shifts to become unstuck. Empowering ourselves brings a sense of ease to life. From personal experience I know that Focusing can help with this shift

My background in Focusing

I studied my initial Focusing in Amsterdam with Ria van Hage

"I found the experience a very personal one. It has helped me to see things about myself."

“The course run by Paula was excellent. Very professionally delivered and friendly too. I have learnt an invaluable tool. Thanks for answering questions along the way"

“Excellent content & handouts. Clear delivery by Paula aided by showing Focusing in action. The course & timings were spot on. I feel I gained a good understanding but very much see that in order to be better able to use the Focusing approach I will need to practice."
