Experience The Joy of Inner Discovery With Your Clients
Enrolling in Professional Certification Training in Interactive Guided Imagerysm(IGIsm) is the best way to master this leading edge method for using the power of the mind to stimulate healing, personal growth and creativity.
Certification training is an uplifting, personally meaningful educational experience that provides graduates with a unique way to prepare people for surgery or other stress-related experiences and to treat people with stress-related symptoms, chronic pain, trauma, physical and life-threatening illnesses, addictions, anxiety, depression, and a host of other medical and psychological challenges.
Through the use of Interactive Guided Imagerysm, clients who have felt hopeless and powerless learn to connect deeply with their inner thoughts, feelings, history and wisdom, and become inspired to take the steps needed to move out of their suffering and confront their challenges head=on.
This level of healing can often affect their physical well-being. Sometimes physical, emotional, and/or spiritual healing is complete, and sometimes it is not. In nearly all cases, however, this type of inner work consistently results in happier and more positive life experiences for those who engage the process.
The thousands of health professionals who have taken AGI courses over the last 25 years tell us that this work rekindles the joy they feel in helping people become their best selves. For testimonials, click here.
Make Your Practice More Efficient and Effective
Using IGIsm, therapists, coaches. and counselors discover new ways to empower, educate, and introduce clients to their own inner wisdom and decision-making abilities through this work. Psychologists, physicians, nurses, and other health professionals report that they can now engage their patients in self-care in a way they had never been able to do before, and coaches are able to motivate their clients when all else has failed.
The unique interactive guiding style that the Academy has developed and refined avoids the manipulation and transference issues that concern many contemporary therapists who are interested in hypnosis and other suggestive mind/body techniques. Interactive Guided Imagerysm points clients to their own internal imagery and teaches them to dialogue with it in a meaningful and deeply personal way.
Teaching clients to use their own imagination in this interactive way results in a remarkably empowering approach that shortens overall treatment time without sacrificing the depth and emotion so central to therapeutic growth.
Since imagery is the dominant natural language of the unconscious, the clinical applications of imagery for resolved psychological issues are boundless.
