I became a Focusing teacher in 2005 and am fully qualified with the British Focusing Association (BFA) and the Focusing Institute in New York to teach Focusing to individuals and groups. I have trained with Ann Weiser Cornell in "Inner Relationship Focusing" in the USA and Peter Afford in the UK. I am also a BFA mentor and Focusing Institute Coordinator offering practitioner and teacher training. Previous to this training, I spent 12 years practising and teaching awareness and meditation skills to groups and individuals in a Buddhist context. I am also qualified in a related practice called Somatic Experiencing (SE), a short-term, body based approach to healing and easing the effects of trauma on our lives. More recently I have been training in nature connection with Wildwise and am apprenticing in holding grief circles with Azul Valérie Thomé in Devon.
