Why take this guided imagery course

CPD Provider LogoStrong emotions focus and lock attention – keeping people trapped in problem behaviours. Therapeutic change cannot happen until the emotional arousal is reduced. This is why all health and welfare professionals need to know how to induce the relaxation response in their clients. 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, which dramatically increases the likelihood of those changes taking place in ‘real life’.

If you want to be able to help people effectively, this is a key course to attend – guided imagery is an essential skill required for removing phobias, curing PTSD, lifting depression and overcoming addictions or self-harm, and is also useful for raising self-confidence and increasing motivation. 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, trauma, depression, chronic pain and much more.

That is why guided imagery is one of the most powerful psychotherapeutic tools available to us – and one you need in your ‘toolkit’.

Fascinating way of working with clients – relaxation techniques very powerful. Extremely relevant to practice. Good techniques and strategies learnt to use with clients to help them problem solve and move forward.

  59. Irena BW, Psychotherapist Counsellor

    Overall, I found the course very interesting and stimulating. Certainly I am looking forward to doing the 2-day rewind technique course tomorrow and Wednesday. It would have been helpful to have a resume of each of the exercises in writing, or a separate sheet.

  60. Psychologist

    The ‘levelled’ gradated build up of the practical application was invaluable. It was very important for me that pairs were changed as this created space to feel comfy to change things for the better and use learning straight away. Good balance of rationales and Q & A opportunities.

  68. Therapist/Wellbeing Practitioner

    Fantastic – got me back in therapist learning and ‘curious’ mode rather than ‘doing’. Fantastic course delivery. Perfect blend of knowledge, experience, fun and understanding.

  69. Teresa Abbey

    I found the blend of facilitator input and experiential tasks was a good mix. Being able to practice step by step is helpful in embedding knowledge. I feel fairly confident being able to use my learning today. Valued having nice surroundings to train in and the food and refreshments were first class.

  70. Katie Hollis, CFYP Suffolk Mind

    So helpful – great to have the opportunities to try the technique. Really helpful breaking it into chunks and building on.

    Ros is an excellent tutor! I really enjoyed the day and learnt a lot. I need to practice and develop the skills but really thought it was great.

  73. Shelley-Ann Dennis, Teacher

    Ros is an excellent teacher. Information is delivered clearly and precisely and is not overwhelming. Time given to practice skills and discuss as a pair or group. However, not many quiet areas, so some practice distracted by others.

  74. Graham Mulholland, IT Manager and Coach

    Provided actionable techniques early on and built on them logically.

  75. James Stanney, Wellbeing Advisor

    Nicely structured, each skill building on the next naturally. Plenty of scope for feedback.

  79. Marion McGeogh, Therapist/Clinic Owner

    Well structured and practical. Lots of opportunity to practice what you have learnt and to ask questions.

  80. Nicola Elmes, Psychotherapist

    Good structure, well paced, could have looked at theory a bit more. Difficult to concentrate on exercises due to volume levels in the room.

  81. Angelica Imber, Yoga Therapist

    Insightful exercise regarding positive experience sharing. So much great content (practical) to immediately be able to implement.

  82. Counsellor

    Good balance between teaching and practicing. I was expecting a bit more variety in different types of visualisation exercises and some more suggested language to better transition within the different stages.

  83. Kate Curtin, MH Nurse

    Well paced – no jargon.

  84. Therapist & Bodyworker

    The day flew by – full of useful info and lots of practise. Really liked the demos – would love to see more of these! Excellent tutor and appreciated the time-keeping.

  85. Counsellor

    Brilliantly informative course. Broken down into chunks to make learning clear and more absorbable. Good mix of learning/teaching styles to help all students.

    Well structured day with enough time for questions – not oversaturated with information.

  88. Hannah Phillips, Sports Consultant

    Really informative and practical. Ros was brilliant!

  89. Therapist

    The course was really good and well structured. Ros communicated clearly in simple language so the elements were easy to understand. As someone new to therapy, there was a lot to take in and unless I practice it soon I’m worried I may forget some of it.

    Very informative introduction to guided imagery. I liked the mix of theory and practise sessions.

  96. Denise Fisher, Retired Senior Lecturer/ Nurse Therapist

    Brilliant refresher course – has energised me to look forward to the other sessions. Thank you Ros.

  97. Medical

    Interesting, great balance of information giving, demos and practise. Sometimes the techniques moved a bit too quickly for me as a complete beginner.

  98. Support Worker

    Integrative and practical exercises – very engaging.

  99. Billie-Jane Brown, Counsellor - Youth Wellbeing Coach

    I really enjoyed the course. The material covered was easy to understand.

The whole day was perfect and a great experience.

    I have found that this course will provide me with a powerful and hope-inspiring tool to share with patients and clients alike in dealing with long standing anxiety and pain issues.

  106. Sonia Sweeney, Counsellor/Coach

    It’s really useful to learn how to apply the skills. By practising during the course we are able to have a deeper understanding of concepts.

  107. Samanta Vance, Nutrition & Hydration Specialist

    Good mixture of theory and practise. Good break times. Excellent food. Great to allow for feedback during the day.

  108. Social Worker/Counsellor

    The information presented was easy to follow, the steps built skills slowly, so that we could have foundational skills before adding more techniques. We were able to practise each foundational step to build our skills.

  109. Sasha Toronyl-Lalic, Yoga Teacher

    Amazing course, engaging throughout, lovely personable teacher.

  110. Claire Bunting, Mental Health Practitioner

    Guided Imagery is a new technique. I have used some of the skills but not in a structured way. I am looking forward to learning more and attending further courses.

  111. Debbie South, Occupational Therapist

    An active and informative day with many useful and informative ideas to take forward in my work.

    Very engaging, creative, thoughtful and helpful. Can’t wait to try it with my clients.

  118. Elizabeth Cummings, Clinical lead of a counselling centre plus retirement from teaching

    Sitting at the back was a drawback to hearing, especially when the leader lowered her voice. However, the content of the course is inspiring and carefully constructed so that skills are developed in stages. Practise sessions during the day were really useful.

  119. Angela Sterling, Counsellor

    I think that the pace of the course was brilliant. Lots of practical exercises that kept me engaged. Lots of tips and tricks that can be transported.

  120. Tanya, Counsellor

    The course was truly fulfilling and the hands-on experience has given me confidence in performing relaxation techniques in such a brief space of time.

  121. Phil Mathews, Emotional Needs & Resources Trainer

    Very well presented – thank you. Very relaxing!

  122. Karys Matthams

  168. Senior Location Manager

    Fantastic and practical!

  169. Ex-teacher
