Course content

The Postgraduate Certificate in Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy has been designed for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists who wish to extend their expertise into the area of focusing-oriented psychotherapy.

This one year, part-time programme (60 credits at Masters Level) provides experiential training and a grounding in the theory of focusing-oriented therapy. There is a growing interest world-wide in this form of psychotherapy, but opportunities for training have until now been very limited.

A basic knowledge and understanding of person-centred therapy is assumed, but the course is also open to practitioners who have trained in other traditions, and who wish to integrate the focusing/experiential dimension into their own practice.

Training takes place over 6 weekends each year.
