British Focusing Association Certificate in Focusing Skills
"What a fabulous course this is! It has been such a wonderful journey for me, which has led to a much deeper understanding of myself. As a trainee psychotherapist it has improved my work with my clients, enabling me to be more present with my clients and work at a greater relational depth. Paula is a fantastic teacher, her teaching style is very engaging, gentle, easy and flows. She is wonderfully warm, friendly and candid, and has such a calming presence. If you wish to enhance your therapeutic practice then you must do this course! Paula has trained under and with the best in this field, so what she doesnt know isn't worth knowing. I have so much gratitude for Paula and for the whole team who made this course very accessible, and such an amazing and rewarding experience. My therapeutic toolbox is far bigger and better as a result! With much gratitude and warmest wishes to the whole team"

"It is hard to put into words what I have gained through attending 'Focussing Skills' but I am aware of deep changes within myself, deeper acceptance of myself, and deeper understanding of myself. Foccusing, in itself, is not complex; learning how to navigate a way through a highly conditioned sense of self, is. Focussing has really supported me to do this. After completing level 2 I still believe there is so much to explore, and i am looking forward to eventualy working through practitioner levels so that I can fully integrate this way of working with others."

Focusing Practitioner Training
"I couldn’t imagine a more lovely way to train as a Focusing Practitioner than on Paula’s course! Everything about it is to be recommended – Paula and her gentle teaching and mentoring style, the organisation, structure and content of the course itself, with its mix of theory, experiential activities, attunements, sensing in and practical role-plays, and the small group size which makes for a safe, intimate space for exploration and discovery. It is a special experience and I don’t want the training to end!"
