FAQ – FOCUSING
FOCUSING is ‘hands-off’. It’s not the same as CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY (which is ‘hands-on’). During the session we talk about what you want to get out of the session. Clarity and purpose are common goals.
Our exploration will guide you to listen to yourself and what your body is feeling, so that you can know yourself better and can sort out what you really feel and want.
You might seek out a FOCUSING practitioner to help you with:
- Blocks that seem to be preventing you taking a certain action
- Emotional overwhelm
- Acute or chronic pain
- Difficult decision making
- Relationship difficulties
An open and curious mind. An issue or a place in your life where you feel stuck or something that you would like to change or know more about it.
Yes. FOCUSING is based on research that found that specifically connecting with your internal voice and the language of your body is linked with positive outcomes in therapy. FOCUSING was originally developed in the 1950’s by Professor Eugene Gendlin of the University of Chicago. He was curious as to why some people found psychotherapy helpful and some did not. What his team found was that those who had a successful experience of therapy were able to press ‘pause’, turn inwards and pay attention to their intuition and focus on what was happening in their body as a result of the problem they were experiencing difficulties with. This then helped them move through situations where they felt stuck. And experience their full potential.
Yes. You can come to my office at the Sunshine Coast, or we can meet on Skype or Zoom. During our time together we can speak english or german.
