Do you have clients who seem to live in their heads and have a hard time sensing inside themselves?
Focusing is a process that helps clients speak from their feelings, rather than about them. It teaches clients to listen to their body’s signals, bypassing defenses and accessing the implicit body wisdom of their “felt sense.”
Focusing can be easily integrated into sessions or used as an everyday life practice that gently brings emotional issues into fuller awareness.
This online program is worth 5.25 hours CPD.
