Focusing-oriented therapy is a way of offering therapy that invites clients to get in touch with that ‘living bodily felt sense’ of their life situations. When we can access our felt sense with gentle non-judgmental curiosity, the issue begins to feel different and shift, and then this affects how we think, behave and live, in a way that is positive and forward moving.

Focusing-oriented therapy has a track record in helping people recover from a range of issues including depression, trauma, anxiety addictions, and more.

Focusing can also help people make better and more embodied decisions and live life more resourcefully.
