Personal Statement about Training Program:
I am certified Focusing Teacher of the German Focusing Network FN since 2001. In 1994 I came to know Focusing during a Focusing introductory workshop of GFK (Swiss Institute for Personcentred Therapy, Focusing and Body Psychotherapy). Christiane Geiser (GFK/FN), my first Focusing teacher and later supervisor for certification, became a role model for how to embody Focusing presence. Focusing presence in atmospheres (FPA) has become my main interest. To me FPA is the cornerstone for relating and being into the world. The training programm is influenced by my university studies of Design, Psychology and Educational Sciences with German Philology, Sociology and Philosophy as minor fields of study. All subjects are incorporated in my didactics. There is a special training focus on environmental atmospheres, inner-outer spaces of the body and Ubuntu based Focusing Relating (FOUR).

A Sample of my Work:
The living body, its aroundness and the situational biotope we live in are timeless living fabrics. Focusing on environmental atmospheres helps to perceive these fabrics‘ processing. Our interconnectedness comes to our personal experience.

Motto: Making space for living fabrics

My Publications:
PHD project, University of Mainz (Germany), Department of Educational Sciences: “Learning by Presence: Generating Meaning from bodily felt Atmospheres. A qualitative Study”. The project crosses focusing, phenomenological theories of education and biographcal research. Articles on
