Guided Imagery for Breast Cancer

The struggle to retain a calm and positive outlook while dealing with treatments for breast cancer can be daunting.

I have been working with breast cancer patients since 1998 to help them through this struggle using guided imagery.  These experiences have shown me that guided imagery can improve well-being and help women as they heal. I found such positive responses, physically and mentally, that I consequently developed a research study at the University of Florida to document the process and outcomes. Based on the significant results from that study and the positive responses from the women that I have worked with I have developed and published my CD, Guided Imagery for Women with Breast Cancer.

Customized Guided Imagery

Anxious? Striving for a Goal? Stressed? Having Surgery? Struggling with a Health Issue? Discouraged? Stuck? Not sleeping well? Want more confidence? Seeking a higher SAT, GRE, LSAT or score on some test?

Just imagine relaxing in your favorite chair, closing your eyes, and listening to relaxing music and a comforting voice. Using your imagination you visit your favorite beach, mountain, forest – wherever you like -  and explore it with all of your senses. While you are in this relaxed state you develop coping skills or strategies to deal with your issues and you begin to look forward to your imagery sessions.

Dr. Goodwin has been creating customized guided imagery CD’s for over ten years. A personalized CD focuses on the specific issue(s) that you want to address and creates an atmosphere of trust and safety since you are an integral part of the process.
