Imagery is proven to be a great support in promoting a person's wellbeing and resilience. Research shows that many of the challenges that a person faces in life are imagined, as the brain plays out a range of possible scenarios. The fact is that these scenarios rarely come to fruition. Despite that, it does not stop the nervous system responding as if they will occur and this can generate significant stress and anxiety.
Imagery is a relaxation technique based on guided imagery that can be used beneficially during or separate from wellbeing and resilience coaching sessions. It provides a powerful means of helping a person internally negate the key issues that are causing stress and anxiety and so positively support their mental health.
Imagery to support wellbeing and resilience takes place over four sessions, but can be extended as necessary if the coachee needs to explore certain issues in more detail.
