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.

Introduction to Motivational Interviewing - AHA Conference
2024-02-28 at 16:28 Pacific Time

I enjoyed this AHA Conference Presentation on 'Introduction to Motivational Interviewing' by Randy Kasper. I so deeply respect and admire Randy, as a professor of AOS, and professionally. And I cannot express how grateful I am to have been privileged to learn from her throughout the last year of my AOS studies. I am already registered for the full Motivational Interviewing class, and excited to be in attendance for it on March 9, 2024. Particularly as my AOS year is nearing completion. I sincerely look forward to and hope to see more AHA events with the incredible Randy Kasper moving forward. I would be most inclined to jump at opportunities to further learn from her highly relational Human-Centered approach, and optimize applying her skillsets towards my own client base. Thank you HMI, AHA, and Professor Randy Kasper for another fantastic presentation.

I still can't embrace that the mind can't discern fantasy from reality. I know the subconscious mind can't but my conscious mind seems to be able to.

I really enjoyed this introduction to Motivational Interviewing and found it inspiring. I can see how using this technique is entirely in sync with interviewing techniques we learn at HMI, but brings it to a higher level of understanding about being a good listener and asking open ended questions. I look forward to learning more about this technique in AOS.

There is a difference between the Subconscious Mind and the Conscious Mind. This test doesn't make the distinction, rather it just states, "the mind." That said, I absolutely LOVED this presentation, information, and strategies. Thank you so very much!
