Guided Imagery and Visualisation for Therapeutic Change

Strong emotions focus and lock attention – keeping people trapped in problem behaviours. Therapeutic change cannot happen until the emotional arousal is reduced.


This is why healthcare professionals need to know how to induce the relaxation response in patients. Guided imagery and visualisation not only reduce emotional arousal quickly but can be used to reframe life circumstances through metaphor and to rehearse in the imagination any required changed behaviours and/or feelings.

Among other things, guided imagery is an essential skill required for removing phobias, curing PTSD, lifting depression and raising self-confidence. When you become confident in using these skills, you can begin to bring patients out of the emotionally-driven trance states of a wide range of conditions such as anxiety disorders, addiction, anger, stress overload, depression and chronic pain.

That is why guided imagery is one of the most powerful psychotherapeutic tools known.
What you gain from the day:

* Insight into how the mind/body communication system works
* Powerful new ways to improve treatment outcomes
* Greater confidence with more conditions
* Supervised practise in generating healing trances
* A scientifically-sound knowledge of why these techniques are so valuable.
