Somatic Imagery to Relieve Stress & Anxiety Course Description

Research shows that interactive styles of somatic imagery are effective tools for relieving stress and anxiety. By first establishing safety and building inner resources, the client is then guided to bring mindful attention to physical symptoms of anxiety and stress. For example, if a client is having sensations of tightness and weight in the chest, the experience is deepened through imagery by having the sensation take on a color, shape, texture and voice. This interactive process reveals ways for the therapist to modulate the experience while also allowing the client to gain insight into the source of the anxiety and stress, allowing for healthy choice and change.
