Learn Focusing


Starting your journey
Most people begin their learning by attending an introductory weekend or course. This will equip you with all the essentials you need to know to practice Focusing on your own or with others in partnership. After this you can complete the BFA Focusing skills certificate. All my course dates for both in person and online courses are listed below. You can also learn Focusing through one to one sessions or on a residential event or retreat. Courses exploring specialist topics are listed in the "go deeper" menu.

    Focusing Skills Course online 2021
    This course is a thorough training in Focusing and Listening and is completed by taking any introductory course (Module or workshop 1) plus Modules/workshops 2-5, all of which are listed below. Each module consists of five x two and a quarter hour sessions over five weeks (Module 1 in January is only four weeks x 2.5hrs). There will also be optional partnership practice between sessions with other participants. More details on the content for each module is found below. Discounts are available for those booking workshops 1-5 together (or workshop 2-5 if you have already attended an introductory workshop).  The BFA skills course is a pre requisite if you want to train in Focusing professionally.
