Experiential Psychotherapy Introduction

This article is an introduction to the work of Dr. Eugene Gendlin.

He’s to me and my work what Sigmund Freud is to a Psychoanalyst (the old school method of therapy where you lay on a couch and talk at length about your past to get at insights to your problems.)

I personally believe that my core school of psychotherapy: Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy innovated Gendlin’s monumental work but still owes its effectiveness almost solely to the idea that we need to sense inside ourselves and body and go beyond “talk therapy.”
