Focusing




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!
