Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy

This course has been designed for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists who wish to extend their expertise into the area of focusing-oriented psychotherapy; it provides experiential training and a grounding in the theory of focusing-oriented therapy; a basic knowledge and understanding of person-centred therapy is assumed, but the course is also open to practitioners who have trained in other traditions, and who wish to integrate the focusing/experiential dimension into their own practice.

Entry requirements
