Guided Imagery is a form of mindfulness. It is a technique that is guided by a professional therapist to help individuals focus on positive mental images in order to evoke feelings of relaxation. It is based on the concept of the mind-body connection and research shows that it can contribute to an individuals’ overall wellbeing. Guided Imagery makes use of all of your senses. It only takes a few short minutes as you will see below to give yourself a break and experience a sense of relaxation and wellbeing. With practice it will help you learn to be more mindful and can assist you with your own stress reduction.
