25th anniversary edition of the classic bestseller
'Focusing' is a technique first developed 25 years ago by American psychologist and philosopher Eugene Gendlin. Hugely influential, it offers six specific steps you can take to open up your inner world of deeper feelings and intuition - and shows you how to listen to others with more empathy. Short, very readable and so simple, you wonder why we aren't taught this fundamental life-skill at school!
“Learning to access and dissolve personal problems by focusing on the language and wisdom of the body was a historic discovery. Gendlin's genius has stood the test of time and Focusing has become a classic.”
“The focusing skill can be learned by anyone in or out of therapy”
“An original, innovative, exciting book”
“Focusing is a beautiful and meditative approach to psychotherapy and personal growth. It offers a deep parallel to the practice of mindfulness in a carefully developed and sensitive way.”
