Focusing is a process that can enrich all areas of our lives, as it is about the very way that we attend to our experiencing. It can help us to step out of our habitual ways of relating to ourselves, others, situations and into a way of experiencing that is more nuanced, rich and alive. Focusing is a natural skill that anyone can develop and Focusing-listening partnerships are a brilliant resource for supporting our wellbeing and ongoing self-exploration. Focusing is an approach that is complementary to Person Centred values and could be seen as an antidote to the fast driven ways of the modern world – and perhaps can help us steer a calmer path through it!


Learning Focusing can help

  • developing more of a connection with your body

  • improving your relationship with yourself

  • improving your self-esteem

  • supporting you with overwhelming emotions such as anxiety

  • connecting with your intuition


The workshop will be highly experiential and will include plenty of opportunity to practice the Focusing process. There will be time to explore the concept of the ‘felt sense’ and the particular way of Focusing listening, as well as how Focusing can be used in day to day life and we will touch on how Focusing may be drawn on when working with clients. There is the option to complete a second workshop, then potentially four more weekend workshops which lead to a BFA Certificate in Focusing Skills. Once you have learnt this valuable process you can practice Focusing on your own or in a Focusing-listening partnership. Practicing Focusing can be a lifelong skill for self-awareness and support.
