All our courses are presented in a manner that is consistent with the Focusing process itself. The atmosphere is respectful, informal, democratic and non-hierarchical. The London Focusing Institute offers upcoming workshops and a 2-year course to become a CERTIFIED FOCUSING ORIENTED THERAPIST. Our weekend workshops consist of 2-days, Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 10-3, offering an Introduction to Focusing and Focusing-oriented Therapy for helping professionals wanting to learn Focusing for their own self-care and development, and for their work with clients.

We also offer workshops specially designed for your group – feel free to make contact to arrange a workshop for your professional or community group, CPD event, or open-access public group. We also prioritise offering affordable or free training to groups actively involved in progressive and positive social change and democratic participation.

Upcoming Focusing Training Dates:

1. Our last Introduction for 2019 – November 23-24, 2019.  Workshops run over Saturday 10-5pm and Sunday 10-3pm in a beautiful setting in Central London, convenient to public transport and tube lines. The workshop is offered by Frank Bock, Cathy McCoy, Carol Poole and graduates of LFI. To register please email: londonfocusing@gmail.com

2. We have completed our second full 2-year certification programme in Focusing Oriented Psychotherapy/Focusing Professional Training. This training is usually restricted to around 20 participants, a mix of very experienced and newly-qualified practitioners, and has a new intake every 2-3 years. We are aiming for our next intake for January 2020. Our Introductory Workshops are a good first step towards the full course.    Certification course details (2 years)
