Focusing is a methodology developed by Eugene Gendlin. Eugene Gendlin worked closely with Carl Rogers and found through his research on investigating what makes therapy successful for some, that those clients who were somehow closer to their inner experience were more likely to experience successful outcomes.
Focusing as a specific method looks at a way of listening to the `felt sense’ that emerges in the body-mind and developing an inner relationship from a place of Presence.
