Focusing taster workshop
Sabine Lees is a focusing professional and trainer (accredited with the International Focusing Institute, New York).
- Feeling the ‘pause’, creating the ‘space’ to listen more attentively.
- Introduction to Eugene Gendlin’s focusing method.
Quote from the International Focusing Institute’s website:
Your body knows more about situations than you are explicitly aware of. For example, your body picks up more about another person than you consciously know. With a little training, you can get a bodily feel for the 'more' that is happening in any situation.
Focusing works with the ‘gap’ or ‘space’ between the palpable, visceral moment to moment unfolding of experiencing and conceptual thought.
Learning this method will help you to listen more attentively to yourself and to be more closely in touch with your authentic experiencing.
Who is it for?
- practising counsellors and psychotherapists of all therapeutic modalities
- counsellors in training

What will be covered?
There will be a mix of theoretical input and experiential elements. This is a taster workshop to find out whether focusing is something you would like to learn more about and get involved with. It will cover basic information about: What is focusing? How do I do it? What are the benefits?
