2-year certification course in focusing-oriented psychotherapy
The London Focusing Institute is a community of teachers, students, and fellow focusers who are eager to make the practice and philosophy of focusing available to professionals and the general public.
Every three years, we have a new intake into our certification programme. We are pleased to announce that LFI will once again offer the two-year post-graduate focusing-oriented therapy (FOT) course in London, beginning in January 2020.
Overview of the course
The course will run over six weekends per year starting in January 2020.
Successful completion of this programme (12 weekend workshops plus reading, regular focusing practice, 12 supervision sessions, and a final group project) qualifies the student to become certified with The International Focusing Institute as a 'focusing professional' (non-therapists), or a 'focusing-oriented therapist' (registered therapists).
This post-graduate specialisation in focusing-oriented psychotherapy (FOT) is taught within the spirit of valuing the diversity of forms of FOT and emphasises a phenomenological attention to experience and the 'being' qualities of the therapist.
The award of focusing-oriented therapist requires prior completion of a recognised therapy/counselling training, and professional registration as a therapist/counsellor/psychologist by the end of the course. Otherwise, the award of certified focusing professional/trainer is awarded to non-therapists.
