Staircase to Focusing Trainer Certification

Online Focusing Trainer Certification

Do you long to share the transformation you have experienced with Focusing? This course will prepare you to do just that, in your own way. It will qualify you to become a Certified Focusing Trainer with The International Focusing Institute.
Online Focusing Trainer Certification classes can be quite intimate and effective.


Completion of Focusing Levels 1 to 4 plus Thinking at the Edge. At least one of these courses must be taken with me. 

The course will cover:

  • Domain Focusing
  • Inner Relationship Focusing
  • Nonviolent Communication as a door to Focusing
  • the Philosophy of the Implicit
  • Community Focusing
  • other topics of interest to participants.
  • Mentoring during your first teaching projects
  • See the current Focusing Trainer Certification plan here: Focusing Trainer Certification Program 2021


US$3000 for one year. The duration of the course will depend on the level of understanding you have when you begin.  Your readiness to become a Certified Trainer will be decided by consensus between you and me (see pdf above). If needed, we can agree on some personalized preparatory trainings.

Dates and times:

I have not determined the dates and times for 2022. I will take your schedule into account if you are interested in joining. 
Individual sessions: You will have one private consultation with me each month, plus as much mentoring as needed to carry out your practicum.
For more information: Please contact me for a free consultation.

What the Certification process means to me:

The world needs more people who understand Focusing in depth from their own lives.  I love taking Focusers through the process of becoming Certified Focusing Trainers. I’ve been a Coordinator with The International Focusing Institute since 2011. I will support you in deepening your experience of Focusing and Listening. Then I will help you in exploring how you want to teach it. I will mentor you as you start planning your courses and teaching individuals and groups. 

My Focusing students are courageous and open people who LIVE Focusing. They have experienced the increased aliveness and connected relationships that Focusing brings.

A profound transformation is happening now on our planet. It requires us to listen to our bodies, to and to learn from life’s challenges. Focusing opens us to new ways of seeing the world and our place in it. Many Focusing trainers will be needed to catalyze this planetary transformation. Join us!
