Focusing® technique is one of the most empathic and respectful experiential methods developed
in the psychology that I know. With the Focusing® attitude, your suffering is respected while being conversed in a different way to release those voices or moments suppressed, ignored,
frozen, or postponed in your life. Focusing® principles and strategies have been successfully incorporated into psychotherapy.
Many times we have an idea of what disturbs us in life. Others, it is just a vague annoyance to which it is difficult for us to put into words. With Focusing®,
we can transform this vague feeling into a well-defined "felt sense" with which we can work, dialogue and open ourselves to other processes of psychological development in your life.
Focusing® was discovered by Eugene Gendlin, PhD. who, from his research, concluded that people who make a successful change had at first a vague sense difficult
to describe. They made an inner awareness, a bodily sense of their problems. Whether a person can pay attention to what he called "felt sense" or "sense of the situation" turns out to be a key component of successful develop processes.
