Rationale for using mental imagery in counselling/psychotherapy:
- Problematic imagery is reported by clients with almost all mental health conditions.
- Exploring imagery enhances assessment process (Beck, 2005).
- Incorporating imagery can significantly boost therapeutic progress.
- Ability to employ imagery techniques is included in core CBT competency framework (Roth & Pilling, 2007).
I also delivered a lecture on this subject, at the University of Salford in 2017.
