Ruth Rosenblum



Focusing Institute Certifying Coordinator

Certified Focusing-Oriented Therapist


Personal Statement

Focusing, Mindfulness Meditation and Relational Psychotherapy are the foundations for my work as a psychotherapist and teacher. The gifts that each of these practices bring have enabled me to work with myself, students and clients to reduce suffering, expand capacities to bear and engage more fully in our lives with greater love, strength, confidence and compassion, and open to further connection with Source or, as Gendlin says, The More. A graduate of and a faculty member in Lynn Preston’s Focusing Oriented Relational Psychotherapy program, I teach classes on Focusing and Spirituality and Psychotherapy as a Spiritual Path for the Psychotherapist. Additionally, I have presented on these subjects at International Focusing conferences. My ongoing gratitude to my colleagues and teachers including Mary Hendricks Gendlin, Joan Klagsburn, , Robert Lee, Ann Weiser Cornell and, of course, Lynn Preston.
