Galia Porat Bio:
I am a certified focusing trainer and certified parents groups facilitator (Tel Aviv University). I live in Israel and teach Focusing and facilitate workshops that integrate the focusing attitude into family and interpersonal settings.

My vocation for years was literature. After a detour of few years in psychology studies, I found Focusing!

The epitome of Focusing for me is Gene article "Crossing and Dipping: The interface between Natural understanding and Logical Formulation." I got the article from Mary Hendricks (who is for ever my inspiration) when I just discovered Focusing, and it is by my side ever since. I am thankful to my Focusing partner and writing partner Liora Bar Natan for our article: "The Uniting Image and its Contribution to the Therapeutic Process According to the Focusing Approach.
