Guided imagery basics
This technique is most effective when you are both comfortable and relaxed so when using the method as a means of self-help, begin with the following:
Find a peaceful spot where you won't be disturbed.
Close your eyes and begin to focus on your breathing. Inhale and hold for a couple of seconds before exhaling slowly.
Try to focus your attention on any tension within your body.
Try to let any areas of tension go with each out-breath.
Throughout the session try and focus on more than just
As the session or script draws to a close, take a few moments to gradually bring yourself back to the present before opening your eyes.
