Allow me to be your personal guide
as you journey deep
into your inner world...

...because it can be a jungle in there!

Or at least, that's how it may feel when you first approach…

There's the

  • morass of repetitive emotion (always angry? always anxious? always sad?) that you cannot extricate yourself from...
  • impenetrable barrier that seems to be blocking you from finding your way forward in a life situation that won't shift, no matter how positive you are...
  • fog of chronic pessimism and anxiety that you cannot see your way through...

Does this sound like your inner world? If it does, then the most immediate relief is to be found through a one-to-one guided Focusing journey directly into the depths of your own experience.

As your guide, I will provide you with tools of inner safety, making it possible for you to meet whatever shows up in there.

What I will not do is dictate where you should go

So, what exactly is my role as your Focusing guide? My role is to keep directing you back to your own experience – a trustier compass than you probably realize right now - as you make your way through your inner world.

You gain the ability to calm the seemingly intractable struggles of the powerful energies you find in there with a powerful phrase: "I'm here to listen"...

As you begin to feel your ability to settle in and look around, the jungle starts to look less fearsome – and you begin to notice the richness, nourishment and mystery there.

Hmmmm.... You had assumed that this was the same-old/same-old that you knew all too well. But as you slow down and start to actually pay attention to what's here, you start to get curious....

Perhaps you come upon a small path leading outward from an area that had seemed to be an obvious dead end before...

Or maybe... maybe you’re already getting curious about your own interior landscape...

You may be wondering…

Is it a good idea to have more than one session?

In a word – yes. Even one session of Focusing can reveal the bubbling springs of lifeforce that lie at the heart of our stuck and tangled places.

But if you have the sort of gnarly issue that often brings someone to a practice like Focusing, you may find that being guided consistently in attending to it with a welcoming, spacious, grounded curiosity helps tremendously in allowing the issue to open up and reveal its own way forward.

(And learning Focusing through classes using a peer partnership model is an additional and very cost-effective way to do this!)

What is a session like?

I offer Zoom and telephone sessions. (For purposes of time zone conversion, I work out of Hawthorne, New Jersey.)

For new potential clients, I like to begin by schedule a free, commitment-free getting-to-know-each-other chat (about 20-30 minutes).

My role as your Focusing guide is to keep you in contact with your own experience and inner process, which is what leads the way. I am always aware that this is your session. You will never be pushed to go in a direction you feel uneasy about.

This makes Focusing a very gentle process. And that very openness and respect for your own process is what gives it its tremendous power to allow whatever stuck or stagnant situation you are in to open up and find its own way forward in fresh and surprising ways.

A session lasts about a full hour. A Focusing session begins with a "leading-in" to the here-and-now of the body. Session tend to go deep, and I make sure you have some time to come fully back to the room before we end, and perhaps chat about it a bit. I am happy for you to e-mail me if something comes up later for you about the session. 

Focusing is not psychotherapy, and there is no need to have a regular series of sessions unless you feel an inner rightness about doing that. Whether you need or would like more sessions is completely up to you.

Clients usually feel a sense of “fresh air” about the issue they have brought, and often experience major shifts. I suspect that you will, too!
