Glenn Fleisch writes: I am a licensed psychotherapist, in private practice for 28 years, and a Focusing trainer. I have been trained by Ann Weiser Cornell and incorporate the Inner Relationship model into my work. In addition, I have had training with Janet Klein and Mary McGuire in Interactive Focusing, and most recently, have been working directly with Kevin McEvenue in experiencing and learning Wholebody Focusing. Over many years, I have worked with a variety of issues and problem areas, specializing in anxiety, stress, addictions, depression and relational issues. I am very interested and excited by whole body processing in Focusing as the whole person includes both inward felt sensing as well as outward expressiveness that activate energy and generate spontaneous, inner-directed movement. I received my Master’s degree in Counseling from Temple University (Philadelphia) and my PhD in Clinical Psychology from The Center for Psychological Studies (Albany, CA). I offer individual sessions and workshops on Wholebody Focusing to therapists and Focusing trainers. I also have done extensive writing on Focusing and change-steps in therapy, recently written an article for publication on gestures in focusing and therapy.
