I love Focusing because it gives me a means to know what I really think and feel. A Focusing session inspires me because what happens for someone who is Focusing with the support of a good listener can be wonderful and extraordinary.

What is Focusing? Accessing your body wisdom
On this site you will find everything you need to know to help you to get started with Focusing. Discover what it is and how it can benefit you directly.
Focusing is for people who are committed to their own development, practitioners who work with others professionally, as well as if you have current problems.
The best way to find out about Focusing is to have a one-to-one session, by phone, face to face with Skype, or in person at the Gandy Centre in Exeter or at my house in Liverton on the edge of Dartmoor.
Please give me a call on 01626 821110 for further information and to book an individual session.
Once you have done that, you can decide to have further sessions to help you to get unstuck in any area of your life, or you can take a course so that you learn how to Focus in your own life, whenever you need it.
A new CD is now available. Focusing for Everyday Life: practical exercises for you to use at home. £15 inc P&P. Order now! Learn more.
On this site you can find out about the range of courses that are on offer. There are courses to help you learn the basics, and further courses where you can learn and practice advanced listening skills.
You can find out more about exciting developments, once you have learned the basics, by taking a workshop. Wholebody Focusing is especially for people who enjoy moving. You could explore your dreams, or your own creative self-expression.
You can take Professional training in this wonderful and enriching process, especially if you already work with others.
The starting point is often a personal or professional problem or issue that needs to be addressed. Maybe something in your life does not feel right and you wish you knew how to change it. With Focusing, you can. However, it offers much more than this.
Open up a radical new approach to your life. Develop a unique ability that enables you to discover a powerful resource within. Once learnt, you can remove obstacles and resolve problems, increase your sense of personal possibilities, and deepen and enrich your life.
I have taught this process to many people and they have often expressed how surprised they are by how gentle and yet very deep and powerful this work is. The changes that occur spontaneously and naturally come from deep within the person themselves and are progressive, unmistakable and permanent.
Here is your chance to learn more about this wonderful and transformative process called Focusing. The name does not really do it justice - it is so much more that simply bringing focus into your life, although it can do that too. It’s more about focusing your attention into the subtle energy field in your body and allowing its truth and wisdom to speak to you. By doing that, you release what your body has been holding, sometimes for a lifetime. It can be extraordinarily healing and powerful. At the same time, it is also very gentle and respectful, because your body does not open up until it feels safe and can trust you to be accepting and non-judgemental. In this way, by learning Focusing you also learn self-compassion and empathy for others.
Please call me on 01626 821110 for more information and to book a session.
