Learn Focusing


Starting your journey
Most people begin their learning by attending an introductory weekend or course. This will equip you with all the essentials you need to know to practice Focusing on your own or with others in partnership. After this you can complete the BFA Focusing skills certificate. All my course dates for both in person and online courses are listed below. You can also learn Focusing through one to one sessions or on a residential event or retreat. Courses exploring specialist topics are listed in the "go deeper" menu.
