is potential energy toward
a more right way of being if you give it space
to move toward its rightness."
Eugene Gendlin (www.focusing.org)
The enjoyable change in how you hold and relate to situations in your life enables you to move forward
in your life process.
The insights are quick and feel good!
You already know how to do this. I will simply remind you how to pause so that your natural
wisdom can slowly emerge and come into "Focus".
This practice of waiting for your bodily-felt awareness
of something to emerge is called Focusing.
enlightening, grounding, and empowering -- a gentle path of radical change.
"We all know we have feelings.
What most of us don't
realize is that more than 50% of human knowledge is
our body's ability to know, rather than
through our mind's ability to think."
I am a teacher of The Art of Focusing Partnership, in which two people exchange Focusing/Listening
turns with each other.
I will gladly keep you company
as you learn how to Focus In and be with yourself in a respectful, non-judgmental manner.
I will also show you how you can listen to a Focusing process in a felt, empathic way.
You will learn this new, egalitarian way of exchanging Focusing turns in a relaxed, step-by-step
that minimizes theory and gently guides you into your practical, experiential
Developing a practice of Focusing Partnership allows you to clear a space for yourself once a week
so that you can be with your unfolding felt experience. You will be very interested in what new and wonderful things
emerge from inside you!

guide you at first. Teach you how to Focus In slowly, a little bit at a time,
in a one-on-one session with me or through a workshop/class.
Here is what someone recently wrote about working
"Her deeply-warm voice, the texture of good melted chocolate;
her guiding presence like encircling arms-- firmly there, yet spaciously allowing.
Suzanne's listening helps what is in me to move and settle, finding its own right pace...
As the afternoon sun settles on my desk, my felt sense wakes up
to the sounds of early morning Costa Rican birds on their plump leaves.
As I reflect on this experience of being guided into Focusing by Suzanne,
what comes is a sweet, perfectly full, Thank You."
(Catherine Johnson, Clinical Psychologist,
Accredited Focusing Trainer and Therapist)
After learning the art of Focusing Partnership,
you will be able to exchange Focusing turns with other Focusers you meet along the way,
and eventually have a Focusing partnership with one or more persons.
Your Felt Listener in your partnership will keep you safe company as you continue your ever-more-fascinating
into your own MORE, where your inner wisdom and serenity await.
This is what one student wrote after one session with me:
"I thought I was pretty good at getting
answers from inside me,
having used Reiki and EFT and TAT to do emotional
healing with great success over the years.
But what I learned this morning,
following on from my experience yesterday during the session with Suzanne,
that my approach until today had lacked an incredibly important ingredient:
for the part of me that was in pain.
Instead my approach had unwittingly
been "I'm going to do what I have to to make this go away".
we resist persists, and when we can bring compassion to it,
we are no longer
resisting it, and it has the possibility of simply melting away,
as the pain
did for me this morning.
Wow! This focusing is AMAZING!"
