Combining psychology and spirituality, this practical book considers archetypes from Asian, Middle Eastern and European myths and explains how they can be used in therapeutic practice to help clients achieve personal or clinical goals. This innovative model of archetype imagination is a powerful tool for coaches and therapists. It involves visualizing an archetype, which teaches the mind to focus, relaxes the ego, and opens the unconscious. This makes space for spiritual insights and allows the mind to let go of distracting sensations and emotions. Combining foundational psychological theories, brain physiology, and Hindu philosophy with the author's visionary experiences, this book explains how to use this technique in clinical practice. It also includes case studies, engaging images, practical exercises, and quizzes for use with clients. Spiritual seekers will find the book's insights a great complement to their practice. This book will help counsellors, coaches, psychologists, psychotherapists, arts therapists, and other therapeutic practitioners to use archetype imagination techniques to guide their clients to emotional health and spiritual awareness.

It is full of practical advice about everything from creating the right ambience in the therapy room to maintaining a positive attitude through self-reflection. This will be a valued support for students and professionals working in a wide range of complementary and alternative therapies, as well as art, music and drama therapists.

Suitable for a variety of settings and clinical populations, the book breaks through the analytical jargon of the field and provides first-person narratives of art therapists exploring their own experiences of grief and client case studies.
Imagery is one of the new, exciting frontiers in cognitive therapy. From the outset of cognitive therapy, its founder Dr. Aaron T. Beck recognised the importance of imagery in the understanding and treatment of patient's problems. However, despite Beck's prescience, clinical research on imagery, and the integration of imagery interventions into clinical practice, developed slowly. It is only in the past 10 years that most writing and research on imagery in cognitive therapy has been conducted. The Oxford Guide to Imagery in Cognitive Therapy is a landmark book, which will play an important role in the next phase of cognitive therapy's development. Clinicians and researchers are starting to recognise the centrality of imagery in the development, maintenance and treatment of psychological disorders - for example, in social phobia, agoraphobia, depression, PTSD, eating disorders, childhood trauma, and personality disorder. In the fields of cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience, researchers are identifying the key role that imagery plays in emotion, cognition and psychopathology. The Oxford Guide to Imagery in Cognitive Therapy has been written both for clinicians and researchers. For clinicians, it is a user-friendly, practical guide to imagery, which will enable therapists to understand imagery phenomenology, and to integrate imagery-based interventions into their cognitive therapy practice. For researchers, it provides a state-of-the-art summary of imagery research, and points the way to future studies. Written by three well-respected CBT researcher-clinicians, it is essential reading for all cognitive therapists, who have recognised the limitations of purely 'verbal' CBT techniques, and want to find new ways to work with clients with psychological disorders.
Mind-Shifting Imagery: Image Guidance for Life Coaches provides brief, safe, non-therapeutic applications of Image Guidance for coaches and other life guides such as spiritual directors, pastoral counselors, chaplains, social workers, and therapists. As presented in this book, Image Guidance has powerful implications for life coaching and is fully aligned with the International Coach Federation's core competencies and Code of Ethics. Used briefly, as a forward-focusing tool rather than as a strategy for re-visiting the past, Image Guidance offers a doorway into self-knowledge (I know who I am) and self-awareness (I understand my dreams, desires, fantasies, motivations and purpose, as well as the limiting beliefs that are stopping me from living the life I want to lead). It is not a "coaching method" as such, but a technique for taking clients to the next level, spiritually, emotionally and even physically. It was nearly 30 years ago that Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart's fascination with the symbolic led her to develop a process for accessing the unconscious that she named "Image Guidance." While this process bears similarities to counseling approaches involving guided imagery and the active imagination, it is unique in that clients converse directly with their own imagery in the presence of a supportive guide who offers direction as needed, as well as feedback. Through her explorations-mostly with faculty, staff and students at DePaul University- Dr. Stewart discovered that images function much like dreams in their ability to heal, guide and illumine. Over time, she amassed a series of case studies which Paulist Press published as Image Guidance: A Tool for Spiritual Direction (1992) and Image Guidance and Healing (1994). Mind-Shifting Imagery: Image Guidance for Life Coaches illustrates simple ways in which life coaches can use archetypes, symbols and metaphors in personal guidance, relationship coaching and even in corporate settings; there is also a chapter on the use of religious imagery and one on imagery and physical healing. Throughout the book, the author provides sample transcripts and step-by-step commentary which serve as a "how-to" manual. She also discusses ways of developing the symbolic imagination, so that coaches and other guides can more readily understand and respond to their clients' symbols and metaphors. Though there are many ways of using imagery to open up coaching possibilities and to bring about dramatic "mind-shifts," Image Guidance provides a process for doing so. Applications include, but are not limited to: - Helping clients identify and describe emotions such as fear, frustration, excitement, enthusiasm; - Assisting clients to identify "blocks" to their success, thereby reducing their negative energy, and allowing them to become unstuck; - Assisting clients to imagine new possibilities and outcomes and to work towards these goals; - Helping clients to prioritize, take action and evaluate; - Affirming clients' hopes and dreams while re-enforcing their belief in self; - Encouraging clients to accept new positions of leadership or areas of professional or personal responsibility etc. Mind-Shifting Imagery: Image Guidance for Life Coaches demonstrates that imagery has a place in coaching with clients who are ready to imagine new possibilities, explore options, diffuse negative situations and clarify complexities. In this journey, the guide serves as a companion and facilitator, helping make sense of all that the imagery reveals. By asking powerful questions and using Image Guidance as a brief intervention, the coach assists the client to go deeper, feel more intensely, understand more clearly and be more authentic. Again, Image Guidance is not a method of coaching but a tool to be used selectively and carefully so that clients can experience a "mind shift" and cross the great divide that separates them from where they are today and where they hope to be tomorrow.
