Guided imagery (visualisation) explained: how to find your peaceful place

How is guided imagery commonly used today?


Research began to crop up as professionals started exploring the positive effects and the technique became an established approach found to be an extremely valuable part of the therapeutic process.

These days it has many uses, including lowering blood pressure and reducing problems related to stress and anxiety. It can also be used to assist in reaching specific goals such as losing weight along with boosting both creativity and performance.

Guided imagery can either be used as a form of self-help, with the use of apps or scripts talking us through the process, or alternatively within a practitioner-led session.
