Guided Meditation

Scientific research has proven the benefits of Meditation, including its positive affects on a number of psychological disorders including anxiety (Roemer et al., 2008), depression (Teasdale et al., 2000), substance abuse (Bowen et al., 2006), eating disorders (Tapper et al., 2009), and chronic pain (Grossman et al., 2007), as well as improving well-being and quality of life (e.g., Carmody and Baer, 2008).

A recent study conducted by Harvard Medical School found that participation in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is "associated with changes in grey matter concentration in brain regions involved in learning and memory processes, emotion regulation, self-referential processing, and perspective taking" (Hölzel et al., 2012).

Our founder has developed a form of meditation therapy based on her experiences in working closely with the parents and guardians of children with challenged learning difficulties, with exceptionally high levels of stress and anxiety. This tailored meditation programme is built on guided imagery and visualisation. This may include visualising a relaxing scene tailored to the individual. The process of guided meditation with personalised imagery can have positive effects on a person's state of mind.
