Lucy van Praag
Certified Focusing-Oriented Therapist
Certified Focusing Trainer
I have a background in bodywork. I came to Focusing and Focusing-Oriented Therapy through my training in Person-Centred Counselling and have a deep appreciation for the depth and gentleness of this holistic way of working, where the relationship between the body and the mind, and their inter-affecting nature is so honoured.
Training in Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy marked a movement for me in to a more explicitly experiential way of working therapeutically.
I love working with clients in a Focusing-Oriented way, for the way that it facilitates a deep attunement, whilst effecting real and tangibly felt changes.
The capacity to engage deeply with our own process through the felt sense is a highly individual experience, one that is deeply personal and unique to each of us. This explains something of why many people find both the Focusing-Oriented approach to therapy and the practice of focusing so revealing and so strengthening.
