We foster Focusing within the Person Centred Approach as member of the Focusing project group of the German Society for Personcentred Psychotherapy and Counselling GwG. Further memberships belong to the German Focusing Society DFG and the European Focusing Association EFA

We are Alliance partner of Focusing Initiatives International for social change around the world


FOCusZ is located in Tübingen/Baden-Württemberg, South Germany. You can find us on Facebook



FOCusZ offers Focusing oriented psychotherapy and counseling (FOT), Focusing workshops and seminars/Community Wellness Focusing and Focusing training programs with certification at all levels. We offer supervision and tutorials for Focusing Network teachers-in-training. Our Models of Training (MOT) recorded at the TIFI website are compatible to the MOT of the German Focusing Network FN

FOCusZ training programs cover atmospheric embodiment. Focusing on the inside-out of the body and the tactile spheres of in-between makes a difference to classical Focusing.

The living body, its aroundness and the situational biotope we live in are timeless living fabrics. Focusing on environmental atmospheres makes these fabrics perceptible. Human interconnectedness comes into play, and experiences of mutual vulnerability show up as dimensions of social resilience (Ubuntu Responding)

Our methods include Relational Embodiment, Wholebody Heartfelt Conversation, Existential Wellbeing Counselling and  Focusing oriented Art Therapy FOAT(R)

FOCusZ has set up samples of Experiential Aesthetics/FOCusZarts recently

The current research on Ubuntu in Africa links humaness to environmental ethics and goes beyond the anthroprocentic view towards environmental holism
