Focusing is a Gentle but Powerful
Mind and Body Approach
to Personal Growth and Emotional Healing
I have worked in the Personal Development, Therapy and Training field for over 30 years
I started to learn about Focusing in 2013. I have found it to be the most powerful approach to personal growth and emotional healing I have yet explored
I'm really excited by the possibilities it brings and I'd love to share those with you.
Focusing is in many ways quite simple, but it not so easily explained in words. This may be why it is not better known. - As Gene Gendlin observed:-
The best way to get a feeling for its potential is to try it out.
As you look around the site, I hope you get a feel for the passion I have for Focusing, how helpful I have learned it can be, and that I raise your curiosity to discover more, and your interest to experience Focusing for yourself
I am based in the Midlands offering one to one sessions, face to face, on line or by phone. See the My Approach page for details.
I also offer group workshops, including the British Focusing Association Focusing Skills Programme. See the Workshops page for details
I do hope you will explore the site - there's lots of information about Focusing, about me, my way of working with Focusing along with details of my other areas of experience. I can combine Focusing with other approaches if people find that helpful
On the Resources page, there is information about further reading and links to sites about Focusing where you will be able to find further information and on see demonstrations of Focusing
If you would like to arrange a Focusing session or have a no obligation, free chat about Focusing and what I can offer, or just have a question about what you have read, please call me or use the Contact Form on the site to get in touch. CONTACT ME
I look forward to hearing from you
I’ve really enjoyed working through the five levels of the BFA Focusing Skills Certificate with Liz. Before the course, I felt I was aware of my emotions and how they manifested in my body, but I would often feel like they were stuck. Liz patiently taught me the focusing approach, which has enabled me to understand how to approach my feelings and I’ve noticed a lot of change in my ability to be with difficulty since learning focusing. Liz is a wonderful teacher and shares her understanding of focusing from her own experience, as well as her theoretical knowledge of the approach. If you’re feeling that talking your way through your difficulties isn’t quite shifting things, then I would recommend you join one of Liz’s courses to learn this gentle and powerful skill.

I had tried Focusing before but found it a bit nebulous. However, when I had my first session with Liz, it was incredibly powerful. I had no idea where Focusing would take me but felt in safe hands, enabling me to trust and relax with the process. I didn’t have to ‘try’. Everything happened so easily and I had some astonishing insights.
