Basic Focusing Skills Course Level 1 to 5


Learn ‘Focusing’ (developed by Eugene Gendlin)
Proficiency in Focusing Partnership Award – PFPA

Focusing - Develop Emotional IntelligenceRelate to yourself and others with Emotional Intelligence

When you are in contact with your body, with yourself, the Focusing-way, it enables you to develop emotional intelligence, so as not to suppress or lose yourself in your emotions or your mental activities.
You come into loving contact with yourself and others, accessing insights that are much deeper and more vast than the emotional or mental dimensions alone can offer.  With this foundation, the way in which your life unfolds is experienced as deeply meaningful; sometimes easy, sometimes difficult, but ‘always’ with a background-atmosphere of clarity and gratitude.

Focusing is a gentle and meditative process in which the person going through the process, the Focuser, occasionally verbally shares their inner experience. The Companion is deeply present and listens and reflects back from an inner space of a welcoming-friendliness and empathy.

During this safe and gentle process

We all have moments in our lives when we feel stuck, confused, or indecisive. We might then hide from others, feel irritated, reactive, and disconnected when with others.
Immerse yourself in this respectful, transformative atmosphere, where you may feel more heard than ever before – by others, but even by yourself.
Learn to have a friendly relationship with yourself and others and discover a deep sense of inner and outer connection.

Level 1 & 2

Level 3 & 4

Level 5

The content may vary a bit, and topics might occasionally be exchanged within the 5 levels.

Three One-on-one sessions are part of this course

These three sessions that are part of the courses are my unique style. I have found that repeated one-on-one meetings are of great value. Each student can more easily find their unique Focusing style.
The teacher can better understand the interests and needs of each group of students.
