    Everything is in a process of change and when things feel stuck or overwhelming, focusing (tuning into the body’s inner wisdom) helps to find a way forward one small step at a time. What I particularly like is that it helps us to find our way out of dead ends...

    Focusing came into my life in 1981, when a student of Person Centred psychology. It resonated deeply with my wondering what it is to be human, why we are here.

    Suzi Mackenzie 

    I rediscovered Focusing in 2008 when I was training as a counsellor: Something in me knew that I needed it! I found that while I knew I needed to empathise with and accept myself, I didn’t always manage it and Focusing showed me how to do this. Focusing has been...

    For 15 years Focusing has enhanced my own journey, as well as my therapy work + spiritual teaching. It's a doorway to buried parts: accessing creativity, honouring intuition, integrating fresh life. It's deepened my respect for body wisdom + my understanding of communication – inner + outer.

    I've practised Yoga all my adult life, and have taught for 25 years. Finding Focusing was a shift change in my life and complements Yoga practice perfectly. Focusing has integrated itself into my life in a gentle, nurturing way, and I only wish that everyone knew how to Focus for themselves.

  • Malvern Hills

    Cathy Rowan 

    Focusing has enabled me to transform my life from an existence of micromanaging chronic pain to one of finding myself again. The Focusing process gently created showed me how to feel safe living in my body rather than being stuck in dissociation and freeze which had underpinned much of the pain.
