    I describe Focusing as the “final piece of the jigsaw”.

    Camilla Sim 

    Everything is in a process of change and when things feel stuck or overwhelming, focusing (tuning into the body’s inner wisdom) helps to find a way forward one small step at a time. What I particularly like is that it helps us to find our way out of dead ends...

    Simon 

    I met Gene Gendlin, the founder of Focusing in 2008 when I visited the Garrison Institute in Garrison, New York. I was moved by his quality of utter humility and ordinariness, endearing me to want to embrace this precious approach. Through it I have come to appreciate the extraordinary depth of visi

    Astrid Schillings 

    Focusing came into my life in 1981, when a student of Person Centred psychology. It resonated deeply with my wondering what it is to be human, why we are here. In that spirit I became a Psychotherapist/Psychologist. I have been been exploring and teaching extensively on the interface of Sensitive...

    Suzi Mackenzie 

    I rediscovered Focusing in 2008 when I was training as a counsellor: Something in me knew that I needed it! I found that while I knew I needed to empathise with and accept myself, I didn’t always manage it and Focusing showed me how to do this. Focusing has been...

  • Frome

    For 15 years Focusing has enhanced my own journey, as well as my therapy work + spiritual teaching. It's a doorway to buried parts: accessing creativity, honouring intuition, integrating fresh life. It's deepened my respect for body wisdom + my understanding of communication – inner + outer.

    Carolann Samuels 

    I've practised Yoga all my adult life, and have taught for 25 years. Finding Focusing was a shift change in my life and complements Yoga practice perfectly. Focusing has integrated itself into my life in a gentle, nurturing way, and I only wish that everyone knew how to Focus for themselves.

  • Malvern Hills

    Cathy Rowan 

    Focusing has enabled me to transform my life from an existence of micromanaging chronic pain to one of finding myself again. The Focusing process gently created showed me how to feel safe living in my body rather than being stuck in dissociation and freeze which had underpinned much of the pain.

  • Stanmore HA7, UK

    Paula Newman 

    For many years I explored my thoughts and emotions, I reflected deeply upon spirituality and what that meant to me. I was keen on self-development yet so out of touch with my body that I did not even realise I was ignoring it. With Focusing I discovered my body's wisdom, and that changed everything.

    Peter Gill 

    I came across Focusing on a retreat in 2003, and since then I have not looked back. It has made a huge difference to my life. For me it is much more than a therapeutic tool: it connects to a whole approach to living. Focusing has helped me to live more deeply from my values.

    After years of meditation and psychotherapy, it was Focusing that taught me how to make a friendly relationship with everything in me. There's always something special about sensing deeply into that open, accepting Focusing place, and I love helping others to discover it.
