Focusing Skills Certificate Course
The basic skills of Focusing and being a Focusing CompanionThis foundation Focusing course takes place on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park in Devon.
The course is divided into 5 Levels or modules. Each Level takes one weekend to learn.
You will need about a month to five weeks to integrate your learning before doing the next Level. Levels 1 and 2 give you the basics and Levels 3, 4 and 5 develop your listening skills further.
This course is recognised by The British Focusing Association (BFA), and is known as The Focusing Skills Certificate Course.
The course is experiential, with plenty of opportunity to practice. It is not a professional qualification, but it is required if you want to go on and do further training towards becoming a Focusing professional.
You can take the weekend courses one at a time, joining the next series when it suits you, or you can take the course as a whole.Read More

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 each session we come back together as a group, hear how it went, any feedback and learning to share and further discussions.Read More
