Wholebody Focusing Oriented Therapy is a therapeutic approach that invites connection to the whole of a person’s experience.  Whilst very gentle, it is a deeply corrective therapeutic treatment, that honours an individual’s capacity to find their own right way forward in their lives. 

Founded upon the philosophy of Gene Gendlin (Ph.D), Wholebody Focusing invites a reconnection to ourselves and to the world around us.  As a simple introduction to Wholebody Focusing and how it can impact your life, please watch the following 2 minute video.

What do Wholebody Focusing Oriented Therapy sessions look like?

On the surface, Wholebody Focusing Oriented Therapy, can look like any other mindfulness based ‘talk therapy’ session.  However, upon engaging in Wholebody Focusing Oriented Therapy, clients pretty quickly come to appreciate the depth of experience that is enabled.  There is much focus in the sessions supporting clients to develop skills:

  • to manage their emotions
  • for self inquiry
  • to create healthy boundaries
