“We often think that change has to be difficult or challenging, but Focusing has taught me it can be gentle and beautiful. The secret of Focusing is realizing you don’t have to change anything–you can just be with your emotions as they are. I cannot express how much this has enriched my life at a time in which it was greatly needed.”
~ Natalie Bryant
We know life is harder when you get taken over by your emotions. We want more than that for you…
If you experience emotional stress, you can benefit from Focusing.
“One of the strengths of Focusing is that you don’t need a therapist to work at a deep level, you have the process for yourself.”
~ Emma Gran
“Focusing helped me trust my process more and achieve the hoped-for results that always seemed out of reach with other programs.”
~ Darryl Commings
Here’s how you can get started:
Which one are you?
Is an inner bully keeping you from living the life you’d like to live?
Ann Weiser Cornell struggled with painful inner critics that contributed to her experience of addiction, social anxiety, and inability to do the things she most wanted to do. Through Focusing, she was able to shift her experience.
She created this audio set to help you radically transform your relationship to your inner critic and start to cultivate some self-kindness and self-compassion.
I’m here for you!
Hi! I’m Ann Weiser Cornell.
After more than 35 years teaching Focusing around the world, I set out to help even more people discover how to Get Bigger than What’s Bugging Them.
Why? Well, feelings are a part of life… but they often take us over and then we do things we later regret. Acting out your emotional triggers is expensive. It costs you time, sometimes even a job or a relationship. It doesn’t have to be like that.
You? You want to find a new way forward that doesn’t end in blowing up or withdrawing when you get hit by strong emotions. The power to change that pattern – permanently – can be yours.
As the first person to make a living teaching Focusing and the co-founder of the Inner Relationship Focusing process, I’ve collected all the skills I’ve spent a lifetime honing and put them into online programs that fit into your everyday life and I look forward to sharing them with you.
Hope you’ll join us!

“With Focusing, we learn how to welcome, acknowledge, and accept all our responses to life-whatever they are. We can feel all our variety and subtlety, all our richness and complexity.”
– Ann Weiser Cornell
What Makes Focusing So Different?
The Focusing process takes you out of inner conflict and into inner peace. You’ll stop being taken over by challenging emotions, all by practicing an inner awareness process that you can do on your own.
Focusing is a body-oriented process of self-awareness and emotional healing.
It’s as simple as noticing how you feel and then having a conversation with your feelings in which you do most of the listening.
And when you learn how to listen to those feelings using Focusing, they’re much more likely to relax, release, and let you go on with what you’re doing in a clear and centered way.
You can quiet your mind, calm your emotions, and move on with your day. Thousands of people from all over the world have transformed their lives using Focusing.

3 Things That Set Focusing Apart
It’s research based.
Focusing has been linked in over 50 research studies with positive outcomes in therapy. The early studies were done by Eugene Gendlin.
Typical outcomes from Focusing include greater emotional regulation, more satisfying relationships, and increased self acceptance.
Listening is the key.
In this noisy world where everything is constantly vying for attention, people learn to tune out to survive. Focusing helps you tune back into the most important thing – You! Not only do you become more attuned to yourself, but you get to work with someone who is right there with you deeply listening to your every word.
You’re the expert.
As the person doing Focusing, YOU are the expert. We believe that you know YOU the best. That’s why, with Focusing, you don’t need an expert. Many other methods require a practitioner to facilitate, but not Focusing! Focusing empowers YOU to make your own choices and get in touch with your own truth.
With Focusing, you understand yourself better, you feel better, and you can create the life you want.
Where Did Focusing Come From?
Focusing was discovered in the late 1950s when Professor Eugene Gendlin of the University of Chicago researched the question: “Why is psychotherapy helpful for some people, but not others?”
Gendlin and his colleagues studied recordings of hundreds of therapy sessions and made a fascinating and important discovery: successful therapy clients were able to do something more than worry about the future or react to the past. They could pause and pay attention to what was happening in the present moment, in their bodies, in response to the problem at hand. Sometimes in ways that words could not easily convey. Gendlin called this a “felt sense,” and developed the method he called “Focusing” so that anyone could learn this profound way of experiencing breakthroughs in whatever has been holding them back.
Focusing allows you to get past what has been making you stuck, using the body-mind’s inherent ability to heal and live forward into new possibilities. Inner Relationship Focusing is a further development of Focusing created over many years of work by Ann Weiser Cornell and Barbara McGavin.
