The Practical Application of Imagination – Innoculation against Stress and Anxiety

Over the last four years I have been working to create the online “Imaginators Programme” which launches on 23rd April 2018.

With 1 in 4 adults experiencing mental illness at some point in their lives, I hope to give people the skills to prevent some of the causes rather than wait to treat the illness.

Having been taught self-hypnosis by my Dad (also a hypnotherapist) as a teenager, i recognise the value of having a mind management toolkit constantly available.  My  passion for many years has been helping people to embrace the power of their imagination – first as a meditation teacher, then creating parties for young children using active meditative techniques and now as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Coach based in my clinic in Amersham.

Most of us start life with a great imaginations, and some people retain and use them throughout their lives.  Others, for a variety of reasons, have theirs quashed and forget how to use them.  The good news is that with a little help and gentle nurturing, it is never too late to re-awaken that precious skill and learn how to apply our imaginations, in a practical way, to every aspect of our lives.

Now, I’m not talking about unrealistic fantasies here, but a practical exercise in seeing possibilities and potential in ourselves, our lives and our environment. This in turn helps us create a powerful Mindset to facilitate successful change using our innate talents and strengths.

There are so many examples of ways we apply our imagination to create new realities.   For example, in business,  by dressing as though you are already a level up on the career ladder you are more likely to gain fast promotion. Why? Because when we apply our imagination to how it...
