Testimonials for Nancy Rogers

Nancy is such a warm, positive person. It has been a pleasure working with her. I have said this before – that she makes me feel safe and on solid ground – because I didn’t realize how important it would be for me.  The way that Nancy made it clear that the part that was not ready to be probed needed to be respected settled my gut amazingly quickly. She has always been very clear that these are my sessions, and that she is there as a companion to help facilitate my relationship with myself, not force one. She has a very light touch.


Nancy is soothing,  supportive and excellent at creating a safe environment.


Nancy did a nice job setting the context for the focusing. It felt like the right amount of introduction to help me ease into the process. Her way of reflecting back what I was saying was reassuring and felt validating. She seemed to allow just the right amount of space and the right amount of commentary. It was a wonderful session. It’s amazing how focusing really takes you into the present with your body and sensations. It almost felt like an out of body experience. As I described some different sensations, they seemed to lessen in intensity. It felt comforting. Nancy asked some really good questions during the session that prompted some deeper thought. One question was something like – Is there a feeling associated with the sensation? Nancy helped me figure out how to best position my body. She gave me some good options for me to experiment with.


Nancy offered: Patience to listen to what I had to say; good listening and skillful in presenting my issue back to me;  compassionate presence; I felt heard and held; she was reflective and presented me with helpful insights. Nancy guided me back very skillfully when I let go of my felt sense abruptly, gave me an opportunity to acknowledge it. I do not feel overwhelmed as I felt before the session today (because of my travel schedule, extended family issues etc). I am curious and at ease and there’s a kind of knowing that I will be able to cross the bridge when I come to one.


To follow up on this incredibly interesting focusing work you are doing: first, let me start by saying a big thank you. I appreciate the time you took at the beginning to answer my questions and to share your story of how you came about wanting to do this. You put me at ease and I felt relaxed enough to trust in the process.
