Therapeutic Imagery Training – An Introduction to Therapeutic Imagery


Cheryl Oneil

Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world.
Emerson

Whatever we give our attention to, we attract. "Where thoughts go, energy flows." Therefore, the more deliberate we are in choosing our thoughts, the more we are able to focus our experiences in desired directions. Like attracts like, form follows idea and what preoccupies our thoughts tends to become our reality. Goal oriented creative imagery is a way of focusing one's mind to get what one wants out of life, be it health, happiness or prosperity.

Most people live, whether physically, intellectually or morally, in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul's resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using and moving only his little finger. Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed.
William James

The American Hypnosis Association Presents

Therapeutic Imagery professional training and certification programs leading to qualification as a Certified Therapeutic Imagery Facilitator and a Certified Master of Therapeutic Imagery.

Mission of Therapeutic Imagery Training

To train professionals in facilitating client access to the creative resources of their subconscious mind; to provide those professionals with imagery tools for use in assisting clients in the fulfillment of their lifetime potential; and to provide instruction in developing the mind/body connection for healing.

Result of Therapeutic Imagery Training

Certified Therapeutic Imagery Facilitators with the ability to guide their clients to access the inherent healing and growth potential of their physical, mental and emotional capabilities; and Facilitators who encourage and empower their clients to take an active role in the healing and growth process, stimulating the mind/body connection by developing proficiency in Therapeutic Imagery.

Welcome to the fascinating journey of helping your clients to understand and unlock the power of their own subconscious imagery! Learning a variety of Therapeutic Imagery tools, you will be able to help clients in their discovery process as they gain insight, direction, and empowerment from their imagery journeys. As a facilitator, you will learn to encourage your clients to take an active role in their healing and growth process, stimulating the mind/body connection by developing proficiency in imagery. The Therapeutic Imagery approach acknowledges the client's desire for self-direction. The meaning of the client's own personal imagery is honored and expanded. This acceptance helps clients move into confident independence. With Therapeutic Imagery Certification skills, you will facilitate clients to image their way to success as they positively move forward in life.

In this hands-on course you will learn by experiencing imagery journeys yourself, by working with others, and by demonstrations. You will find out the uses of imagery for pain control, stress reduction and healing, and a variety of general emotional well-being and success issues. Along the way and on track for the Imagery Master Certification, you will learn how and when to use and apply FreeStyle Imagery, Guided and Semi-Guided Imagery, Metaphysical Imagery, Mythic and Archetypal Imagery, and Transformational Imagery.

In grateful appreciation to the American Hypnosis Association for making this program possible, I look forward to a journey with you as we discover together the realm of infinite possibilities through subconscious imagery!

Cheryl O'Neil, C.Ht.

Hypnosis and the Law of Attraction
2024-06-14 at 15:25 Pacific Time

This seminar has changed my life, and that is an understatement! I will have to go over this material again and again with the goal of teaching this practice to others, and somewhere along the way, hopefully I'll come to understand it myself. Joe Tabbanella has a masterful way of presenting this material as not just wishful thinking, but a true way of life. It's not just some hobby or obsession, but he shows how this theory is the underpinning of every good goal and intention, and how it's simply the summary of every good strategy. Very NLP of him!

Hypnosis for Test Anxiety and Success - Certification Course
2024-06-08 at 18:08 Pacific Time

I truly appreciated this course, such as Bruce`s knowledge about how laughter can improve the brain's performance ability and effectively deal with stress. Bruce also provided valuable ways to research and utilize information about specific performance tests and what therapeutic tools might be of benefit in dealing with various aspects of test taking. This was ultimately a course on the production of success, and just how effective systematic desensitization, reframing, visualization, good hygiene, and learning tools are toward the production of that success. I will definitely be using this material for clients with performance anxiety.
J.L. from Mobile, Alabama


Hypnosis for Test Anxiety and Success - Certification Course
2024-06-08 at 16:18 Pacific Time

I loved this certification course as well as Bruce Bonnett, he is hilarious, I love his quirky sense of humor. He reminds me so much of myself. I can find humor in everything and anything most of the time when others can't. His style of teaching just works for me in a way that makes more sense than anything else. So with that being said, I'd just like to say, "thanks Bruce, I appreciate you and don't ever change your techniques because they are really wonderful."

Great seminar. I learned so much, was able to practice, and have since used several of these techniques and journeys with my family and clients.
S.C. from San Francisco, California


Hypnosis and the Law of Attraction
2024-06-02 at 15:49 Pacific Time

Joe is an outstanding, caring, compassionate instructor. His personal stories, knowledge, and application of the principles of the Law of Attraction help drive home the importance of one's state of being as the key factor in order to achieve desired outcomes. I am currently taking the NLP Certification Course Joe is teaching, which is also a great reinforcement to understanding how the two can be integrated to help personal and professional development. I highly recommend students take both NLP and Law of Attraction courses! Great job!
B.C. from Hawthorne, California


Hypnosis and the Law of Attraction
2024-06-01 at 22:02 Pacific Time

This was a fantastic seminar on the realization of well-formed outcomes, because that's what I see it as. It's more than just thinking about what we want for as long as possible. Wishful thinking is different than wishful embodiment, and both are different than embodied action. I'm glad Joe stressed the importance of maintaining the mind-body state of the desired outcome as something central to the entire practice. One of the best seminars I've attended where feeling was divested of its secrecy.
J.L. from Mobile, Alabama
