Turning Inward to Change Deeply

Perhaps you are looking for something that could help you

overcome the unique obstacles and challenges you are

facing. Some of them might be new, while other are more

persistent issues that have been there for a long time.  

You may be longing to change something in the way you

relate to yourself, or the way you feel and live your life.

 

I believe that in order to change deeply, you need to turn

inward and make a special kind of gentle and caring Inner

Relationship with what can be felt there. Doing this

will ultimately be very rewarding and transformative, but it

may also be difficult, even to the point of feeling like it’s

something impossible to do just by yourself.

Supportive Companion on a Path to Change

This is where I come in. Consider me a supportive companion on your way to deep change. My main job is to be fully there for you at every stage of the process, to be empathically present, encouraging, listening with acceptance and making sure that you safely navigate through you inner landscape.

 

You can create an inner environment where a deep change and healing can happen, and I can help and guide you in creating and cultivating this Inner Relationship based on respect, acceptance and kindness.

My Credentials 

I have completed a two year Inner Relationship Focusing Professional program with Ann Weiser Cornell and Barbara McGavin, who are the co-creators of this particular form of focusing. I am one of the co-mentors on their Certification Program and in June 2024 I will formally begin a process of becoming Focusing Coordinator, which means I'll be certifying the future trainers. My mentors in this process are Barbara McGavin (lead mentor), Ann Weiser Cornell and Peter Gill.  As much as I cherish and am very proud of the above, I believe there is something I offer, that is even more relevant. It is the personal change I experienced over the years and the understanding and wisdom I got from it. 

 

And if it Feels Right ...

About Inner Relationship Focusing

Inner Relationship Focusing (IRF) is a self-awareness process used for emotional healing and for accessing positive energy and insights for forward movement in one's life. People can use and practice IRF for themselves, and with others using a partnership model. IRF can be incorporated into and combined with almost any modality of psychotherapy.

 

IRF was developed by Ann Weiser Cornell and Barbara McGavin starting in the 1980s, as a refinement and expansion of the Focusing process discovered and developed by Eugene Gendlin in the late 1960s.

Inner Relationship Focusing emphasizes being in a gentle, allowing

relationship with all parts of one's being, including parts that are in conflict,

parts often denied or pushed away as unacceptable or demeaning, parts

that are overwhelming, and parts that are so buried or subtle they need to

be drawn out with patience and gentleness. In allowing all aspects of the self to be held in acceptance and awareness, new insights and shifts can emerge and emotional healing can occur. Inner Relationship Focusing therefore emphasizes the relationship of the self with the various inner aspects, however painful, and it relies specifically on a quality of presence, called Self-in-Presence. Self-in-Presence is the ability of the self to be present with inner aspects with a quality of friendliness, gentle curiosity, and non-judgment.
