Find a Focusing Professional - Freda Blob


I am Senior Teacher of the German-Swiss Focusing Network FN, engaging in the FN leading team since 2001. I came to know Focusing with the Swiss Institute GFK (person-centered, experiential and body oriented psychotherapy) in 1994 and took the Focusing Plus training programs with the FN from 1995 on. From the early 2000s on I took advanced trainings with international teachers. I am specialized in Existential Well-being Counseling (Mia Leijssen, KU Leuven/BEL), Focusing with the Whole Body (Astrid Schillings/GER) and Focusing Oriented Expressive Arts FOAT®. The FOAT® Training with Laury Rappaport, PhD, MFT, ATR-BC, REAT, forwarded my interest in Focusing and the Arts profoundly. I took my undergraduate studies in Design Techniques as entry for the Scientific Art Therapy program of the Catholic University of Applied Sciences KU Freiburg and certified as Art Therapist in 2022 (Diploma of Advaned Studies DAS). I am holding a guest lectureship on Focusing and the Expressive Arts at KU Freiburg since then. I am professional member of the International Expressive Arts Therapy Associtation IEATA since 2020 and engaged in the annual IEATA conferences. My special Focusing focus is on trauma-informed Expressive Arts Focusing, a method I created in 2019 to integrate FOAT®, Sensorimotor Art Therapy®/Guided Drawing® and Receptive Art Therapy with the FN Focusing Plus style. I teach Focusing and Expressive Arts Focusing nationally and internationally online
