Focusing

Focusing on the ‘felt sense’ was introduced by Philosopher and Psychologist Dr. Eugene Gendlin (1926 –  2017).

Focusing is a process of acknowledging, sensing, listening, and being open to the stories our bodies hold and know, about what the mind and the language of words, is yet to grasp.  In other words, inside the body, there is a library of wisdom stories waiting to emerge and unfold. When we take time to pause  to sense and listen, we can make contact with the ‘felt-sense’ of things as they are.

Focusing can be introduced as a delicate accompaniment to the therapeutic process, to help you access the as-yet-unknown wisdom that lives inside the body.
