“Dean’s eloquence in explaining pith principles, his skill in space and silence, his playful, creative companioning, make him a superb teacher of Focusing.”

~ Gillian Parrish

“The perceptive insight that Dean brings forth in the context of supervision seems to spring from his deep knowledge of Focusing, and he is able to offer his insights skillfully and in a way that embodies the approach itself: with a strong spirit of curiosity and an invitational stance that is evident in both his words and his demeanour.”

~ Monica Dragosz
