Online Focusing Skills Certificate Course

The Online Focusing Skills Certificate Course comprises of 5 Levels, or modules, and leads to a Certificate in Focusing skills which is the foundation for professional training, and gives you a good grounding in the practice of Focusing and Companioning.

The online course is divided into a series of 4 x weekly half-days of 3 hours each.
There is a break for 4 – 6 weeks for you to practice and to integrate what you have learned.
There follows another series of 4 weekly seminars, which comprise the next Level or module. There are five modules in total, so the course takes several months to complete.
Focusing works best when you learn and absorb slowly, over a period of time.

This is an online course for people who cannot travel, or do weekend courses. You can join the course without leaving the comfort of your own home. The course is face-to-face online, so you can see your tutor and the other participants. Zoom is free-to-use software, enabling a group online conference facility. For 2 – 5 people maximum.

This distance learning opportunity is for you:

  • If you can’t get away at weekends
  • If you can’t travel to courses
  • If you would prefer to learn in shorter weekly chunks
  • If you would prefer to learn Focusing without leaving the comfort of your own home

It works by Zoom conference call. You can hear and see the others on the call. After introductions and meeting the others on the course, you learn the specifics of Focusing, see a demonstration or do an exercise and get instructions for practice. Then you ring off and call one of the other people for a short practice session, or we may practice in the whole group. After the session we come back together as a group, hear how it went, any feedback and learning to share and further discussions.
