who we are

Inner Relationship and Wholebody Focusing Teacher

Jo Kennedy

After a 25 year meditation practice I was deeply moved when I discovered Focusing. What I had been yearning for had been there all along; what the meditation teachers had been talking about was suddenly accessible. I was offered the  missing link.  Focusing is a profound form of deep listening, it has enriched my life, shown me how to build strength in my cancer recovery and given me access to an ongoing source of creativity and healing.

Learning to listen into this deep, more bodily knowing has given me the gift of myself. 

It's a radical idea but what if ... the body itself is our teacher?

one to one sessions, classes and workshops held at the Abbotsford Convent, on the phone and on skype.

Once you have learnt to Focus you can continue to practice with a partner, or on your own. 

Certified Focusing practitioner/trainer and co-ordinator. Trained by internationally renowned Inner Relationship Focusing teacher Ann Weiser Cornell and Wholebody originator Keven McEvenue.

As a trauma informed practitioner I also offer Somatic Experiencing sessions. I have trained with and am a member of the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute. The combination of Somatic experiencing and Focusing is a profound and deep healing combination. This Therapeutic process is available for short term  session work. 

Learning to create the right conditions for change to happen in our bodies and for pain and trauma to resolve is a journey that can lead to profound healing and happiness.

“I have little doubt that as individuals, families, communities, and even nations, we have the capacity to learn how to heal and prevent much of the damage done by trauma. In so doing, we will significantly increase our ability to achieve both our individual and collective dreams.”
