What is Guided Imagery?
Guided imagery is the process of listening to someone's voice, and allowing your attention to consciously direct the imagination to see, feel, hear, taste, and experience the imagery presented.
It involves a relaxation process where your breathing pattern is usually slowed, your body is relaxed, and the conscious mind slips to the side (although it is always available).
You are always in control of your experience but the more you learn to trust in the imagery the more progress you will make.
If you know of someone who could use a private consultation, please send them my way. After an initial interview I am happy to create individualized recordings to meet their specific needs.
Generic recordings and Apps are great tools to practice with and I recommend them highly. However, if you want a more personalized recording, tailored to your preferred learning style and your specific issues give me a call.
