Do you want to get beyond feeling stuck and tangled and sense your body may have an answer?
Would you like a whole hour to explore a more personal issue with an experienced Focusing guide?
I am available for individual teaching and focusing sessions, either in person in the Stroud area or on the phone/skype. I can occasionaly book sessions in both London and Brighton if the dates coinside with workshop dates.
Focusing can be used to explore specific issues in your life that may need a more individual and private approach than a workshop setting. You may simply want more time and personalised guidance. 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.
“The three sessions I took with Manju gave me the chance to take stock and look at some complex situations and realise changes I need 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
Sessions last an hour, and are usually a mixture of tuition and focusing time. After some initial arriving time we will start the Focusing session. During you session my role will be one of a companion and guide. I will be respectfully listening and reflecting what i hear. You will be guided in a respectful and unobtrusive way. A Focusing session is an experience of being deeply in touch with your self. You will be safely guided to listen to and be with your body and feelings, without being overwhelmed by them. You will 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.
Costs: £45 or £35 concessions.
For booking 3 sessions together: £120 or £90.
If you are trying out Focusing then I usually suggest doing two to three sessions to get a feel for what focusing can do for you.
contact me to book or to ask about individual sessions.
If you are training as a Focusing practioner/teacher here in the UK or as a trainer in the US and beyond then I am available as a second mentor. Please contact me to ask about what I offer and the costs.
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:
