In NVC we talk about "the shift" that comes from connecting with needs. With Focusing, we can learn a reliable way to connect with the inner experiencing that can lead to that shift. In an Introduction to Focusing for NVC, we will learn and apply the basics of Inner Relationship Focusing with an awareness of the NVC process and needs consciousness.

A certified NVC trainer recently said that with Focusing, self-empathy is deepened exponentially. Eugene Gendlin, who brought Focusing to the world, himself said, "No matter what you do, with Focusing, it will go better," and this has definitely been my experience with NVC, and in general. Focusing, Gendlin’s book, used to be on the recommended reading list for certification candidates, which is how I was first introduced to it.

The series will run for 5 weeks on Mondays, July 5th to August 2, 1:00–3:30 p.m. Eastern time. You will be asked to do a 1-hour Focusing partnership exchange with a classmate and some reading as homework each week between classes. Cost is 375 in the currency of your country (AU, CA or US dollars, Euros, UK pounds etc. Please contact me if you would like more information about pricing.) Please be aware you may incur long distance or other charges associated with dialing into the conference line.

Pre-requisite: one 1-hour guided Focusing session. If you book with me, the cost is 35 in the currency of your country. You can also have a session with any other Inner Relationship Focusing teacher, see

Materials: Focusing Student’s and Companion’s Manual, Part 1. Available at
