And of course open to parents, grandparents, caregivers, and to anyone interested in learning more about how Children & Focusing cross.  Most importantly it’s available for YOU!


Lucy Bowers  is an Ontario certified elementary school teacher retired from the Toronto Board of Education who describes Focusing as a powerful and effective way to deal with overwhelming emotions and blocks to living in a fully alive manner. She first learned Focusing in 1984 from Ed McMahon, PhD and Peter Campbell, PhD as a process called Bio-Spirituality. This became a practice in her personal life for growth and healing. Since then, Lucy has become a pioneer in using Focusing to help children learn that the real teacher is within each of them, which has given children of all ages confidence and allowed self-esteem to grow. She adapted Focusing to be used in primary classrooms with an activity that the children fondly named "Elevator Rides". It has been her privilege to present her work throughout Canada and internationally to teachers, parents, grandparents, social workers, etc. Lucy is a Certifying Coordinator and a Certified Focusing trainer with The International Focusing Institute.

Dr. Atsmaout Perlstein is a clinical psychologist, active for the past thirty five years.  She devotes her current professional practice to lecturing and training psychotherapists and Focusers in using KOL.BE Body Mapping as a therapeutic tool.

Harriet Teeuw is a Focusing Coordinator and Art Therapist, working in her own practice with children and adults in The Netherlands. Teaching “Dynamic Expressive Focusing” and Focusing International Online Certification Program for Focusing Practitioners.
