WHAT?Piha photo by Jo Currie

The overall aim of Refocussing is to facilitate greater wholeness; and to achieve this the theory therefore provides ‘a seven foci meta-system’ to attend to people’s unmet needs in various spaces and contexts including:

Intra – personal ( intellectual, physical, emotional, moral);

Inter – personal  (social- including health & economic wellbeing, relational, recreational, vocational, career);

Trans-personal ( relationship with God,  spiritual development & relation to the environment).

Refocussing Counselling (RFC) or Refocussing Therapy (RFT) has been reported to be very effective for:

  • couples with relational and marriage problems
  • children suffering fear, anxiety, nightmares, family and relational dysfunction
  • stress & other anxiety, phobic and obsessive compulsive disorders
  • a suicide prevention approach
  • overcoming anger
  • treating and healing eating disorders
  • healing, and resolving some depressive disorders
  • facilitating a positive and healthy view and relationship with God
  • Goal setting and problem solving
  • increasing damaged self esteem and other child hood  hurts
  • Workplace vision and team building
  • Vocational / future career and decision making options
  • Training and teaching small groups in self awareness and increasing connection to God.

Refocussing provides reputable research from the University of Auckland, and Massey University (New Zealand).
