Learn to incorporate transformational Focusing skills in your personal life and your professional practice! Specifically designed for therapists and healing professionals, this workshop will teach you how to bring awareness into your body and sense the subtle ways your inner self communicates with you. You’ll build trust in this inner relationship, and create a safe and nurturing environment within – one that encourages your innate gifts. You’ll discover the first important skills of finding and holding presence in a Focusing session and how you can help clients to do the same. Level One is the first in a four-workshop series that transforms our relationship to our problems and teaches how this change process can be smoothly incorporated into any therapeutic modality. Learn more about my Focusing Training Program. Prerequisite: A guided session with any Focusing teacher. I offer a reduced session fee of $75 for those registered for the workshop. A guided session helps prepare you for the workshops by giving you a solid experience of finding and interacting with a felt sense during your session. Please contact me if you’d like help scheduling a session.

Running a private practice requires that we be entrepreneurs as well as therapists, but many of us could use support and guidance with the business end of our practices. If you are in the process of starting or building your private practice and are looking for help and support, consider joining this new group offered at no cost in the Pioneer Square neighborhood. My goal is to provide the forum for people to share ideas, get feedback on their materials, brainstorm about marketing and networking, learn about online advertising, develop supportive relationships with colleagues and have fun. While I will offer what I have learned in building my successful practice, most of the material will come from the discussion that arises among us. The group will remain open to new members as space allows.

DATE  Every other Monday, 8:00am - 10:00 am
