Deeper Down – This book of everyday scripts for guided visualisation; has been collated from over two decades of working with some of life’s difficulties. Often, clients attending for general counselling just need a way to feel calm and grounded. Being able to guide clients through a journey to a place of safety, when all they feel around them is danger, can really make a difference to their day to day functioning.
The ability to be able to visualise a time or position whereby we can change the way things turned out, or to be able to view a situation from a different perspective, can be life changing for many. At the very least, it can defuse a heightened sense of alert (hypervigilance) and teach new and helpful tools. Lessening the increased state of anxiety, which is the cause of excessive exhaustion and panic.
I have spoken with many therapists over the years who state that they don’t feel skilled or capable with using such an effective tool with their clients. This is just not the reality. A client who has become used to and has built up trust with a therapist’s voice, in whatever capacity that may be. For anyone who works closely and regularly with clients, they can become a voice of safety and reassurance. Who better to read a safe and restorative guided visualisation, to those in need of such solace?
