Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) Training in London

Are you a music therapist looking to develop the scope of your practice? If so, training in Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) may be a good option.

The London based Integrative GIM Training Programme offers training at 4 levels, and covers the full contemporary spectrum of Music and Imagery (MI) and GIM methods. This gives you different options. Following the 3-day foundation course, you can either elect simply to complete one or both of the short MI trainings offered (Levels 2 and 3), which are qualifications in themselves, or continue with the full GIM training (Level 4).
MI methods are the simplest in GIM, with potential application in a wide range of music therapy settings. At Levels 2 and 3, short-term goal-oriented MI methods are taught, where the clients draw whilst listening to recorded music to develop their inner resources or work on issues.

GIM methods involve client’s imaging whilst listening to music in a relaxed state, with the therapist providing non-directive verbal support. The Bonny Method of GIM is taught at Level 4 on the course, along with other GIM and MI methods.

The training programme is delivered by two experienced GIM trainers from the UK (Martin Lawes and Dr Sumi Paik-Maier), along with a number of experienced international guest trainers (currently Professor Gro Trondalen, Norway; Professor Lisa Summer, USA; Dr Torben Moe, Denmark; Marilyn Clark, USA; and Dr Dag Korlin, Sweden).

The next Level I foundation course will take place from May 31st to June 2nd 2018 at Eastbourne House Arts, Bethnal Green, London, E2 OPT.
