Face-to-face Online

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

This course 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.

Course Objectives:

Learn how to Focus with a Companion. Learn how to be a Focusing Companion. Learn how to become present to your experience. Develop a base for integrating Focusing into your life. For your own personal growth and development.

Outcomes of each level:

Level 1: Introduction to Focusing

Learn how to listen to your inner wisdom through creating a positive inner relationship with yourself. Develop the knowledge and skills to begin to practise Focusing alone, and to begin to listen to an other, so you can Focus with a companion. By the end of Level 1, you will have a basic understanding of the Focusing process.

Level 2: Being a Focusing Companion

Practise the listening skills that enable you to companion someone else in a Focusing partnership. Expand your Focusing skills. Release blocks and stuck places. Unleash your creative energy. By the end of Level 2, you will be able to join a peer group of Focusers, form a Focusing partnership, and attend further or advanced classes and workshops.

This is not a professional qualification, but it is required if you want to go on and do further training towards becoming a Focusing professional.

Fiona Parr is a BFA Recognised Focusing Mentor and TIFI Certifying Coordinator.
