Focusing is a type of body-oriented approach to wellbeing originated by Dr Eugene Gendlin. When Focusing is used in the framework of therapy, it is called Focusing-oriented psychotherapy. Focusing can be used in other ways, not merely by psychotherapists. There are thousands of people who engage in peer-Focusing having gone through a basic training and choosing to form a partnership with a fellow-focuser.
I have found that Focusing is an effective way to combine with the type of work I do in the realm of the Sensation Method of homeopathy.
For up-to-date information about Focusing please visit the Focusing Institute’s website. The institute is located in New York. The website gives you access to the majority of Gendlin’s prolific work and the international community of Focusing.
For those who care to read academic style please click here to read a paper I wrote on Focusing during my studies of psychology in college. It is a good introduction to Focusing, through the filter I view it and ways it relates to my work and my understanding of its approach.
Currently I am working toward a combination of the Sensation Method and Focusing-oriented inquiry. Please stay tuned for further developments. Again, the best place to follow it is my blog. I sincerely welcome your thoughts and comments on this process. If you have questions, thoughts, ideas or just a friendly tap on the shoulder, because you think it is a worthy direction - do let me know!
