Attending a Focusing Course is a great way to learn about Focusing and benefit from the process at the same time.  You will have opportunities to learn new skills and develop helpful qualities and to practise these during class and between classes. 


BFA FOCUSING SKILLS CERTIFICATE COURSES - LEVELS 1-5

Focusing For All offers step by step training in Focusing skills and qualities, in person or online, in small groups or one-to-one. 

These courses are based on Inner Relationship Focusing and will offer each student:

  • A step by step practical way to become bigger than your difficulties
  • A way to contact your inner knowing and get clearer about your life's direction
  • A powerful way of listening that helps you better relate to yourself and others
  • Simple practical skills to apply in everyday situations
  • A process which can improve all your relationships and can support change and healing in your life.

You can expect to become an empowered Focuser and a Compassionate Companion with your own Focusing process and within Focusing Partnerships.  Students are also likely to experience benefits in many aspects of their daily lives including relationships, health and wellbeing.

Each of the five Levels offers 12 hours of training.  The British Focusing Association Focusing Skills Certificate is awarded on completion of all five Levels.  This involves 60 hours of training over several months.

SOME OF MY PAST STUDENTS WRITE:

The level one course Focusing with Pamela was excellent... I can fully recommend working with her. She listens well, explains well and teaches well... Through her introduction and exercises I realized how encompassing Focusing is. It is much more than one tool to reduce stress... I was also surprised to learn in class how strongly the language effects how I deal with my emotions. Applying Pamela’s well-crafted exercises felt very freeing. The course has had a lasting impact on my day-to-day happiness level.  Katrin

 

This was a well organised course, delivered very professionally but also in a warm, friendly, informal way. You seemed extremely knowledgeable and well prepared and able to deal with anything that came up.  I found the whole thing very welcoming – challenging too, but a wonderful experience which I’m now missing!...Thanks so much!  Ryan
