The Bonny Method Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) is a music centred therapy that uses specific western classical music sequences to evoke images, feelings, memories and sensations in a deeply relaxed stated of consciousness. Exploring and processing your imagery with a trained GIM therapist can lead to healing on many levels.
Sessions include verbal counselling, meditation, and a music listening experience. Your session may also include mandala drawing, journaling with music, and other therapeutic process exercises – as guided by you. No previous experience with music or art is required to benefit from GIM.
GIM can support clients going through emotional and psychosomatic pain, including trauma, grief, mental health struggles (stress, depression, anxiety, etc.), relationship issues, life review, personal growth and much more.
Maryann is a Fellow of the Association for Music & Imagery and a Guided Imagery & Music Practitioner. She is one of only three therapists in the Greater Victoria area certified in this specialized healing modality.
