This is an example of how guided imagery can be used for reducing stress and anxiety. It is a 10 minute YouTube video by Joanne D’Amico . The listener goes for a relaxing walk along a beautiful private beach; the rhythmical sounds of the ocean and the soothing narrative leave the listener relaxed, peaceful and calm. Guided imagery works through suggestion, the body and mind are interconnected and respond as though what you are imaging is real.
In our therapy sessions, a similar but personalised technique will be used to address the specific issues that trouble you.
