One-to-one sessions

From July 2022 I will no longer offering one to one sessions, but will be concentrating on sharing and teaching Focusing to groups.

Why might you want one to one sessions?
  • You want to get a taste of what Focusing is like and learn the basics
  • Explore a specific issue that needs more time, depth and privacy
  • Explore an area that needs the skill of an experienced guide
  • Go deeper with your learning and explore topics
  • Learn how to companion in Focusing

I am also qualified in Somatic Experiencing and where appropriate and asked for, can incorporate some principles and practices from that approach - specifically when exploring issues related to trauma and how it lives in our bodies.

Where do they happen?
I am available for individual teaching and Focusing sessions, online through zoom. I do offer in person sessions in Stroud at limited time, get in touch to enquire.

“The three sessions I took with Peter gave me the chance to take stock and look at some complex situations and realise changes I needed to make. They were very valuable to me and I have carried on with the practice through workshops and one-to-one sessions with others involved.” Helen - teacher

What happens in a session?
Sessions usually last an hour, and are a mixture of tuition and Focusing time. After some initial arriving time, we will start the Focusing session. During your session my role will be one of a companion and guide.
  • You will be guided in a respectful and unobtrusive way.
  • You will be led to an experience of being deeply in touch with yourself.
  • You will be safely guided to listen to and be with your body, sensations and feelings, without being overwhelmed by them.
  • You will be guided to “be with” yourself in a new way that brings space, empathy and understanding to the most tangled of issues.

The session will be timed and I will let you know a few minutes before the end that the time is up. I will leave time at the end to ask questions and explore what happened.
How is having Focusing sessions different from therapy?
Focusing can be a very useful skill to add to an existing therapy you might be involved in as a therapist or a client. See below to see how it is different from therapy.

Although Focusing is therapeutic and many therapists use Focusing as part of their work, having a session with a Focusing guide is not the same. Here are some of the ways you might find it different from many kinds of therapy:
  • You will not be asked to disclose details or history about the issues you’re working on, though you may share them.
  • You will not be diagnosed, or given advice about your life situations.
  • You decide if you want more sessions, how frequently and when to stop having sessions.
  • The emphasis is on your relationship with yourself and your body (rather than your relationship with me)
