I have a question regarding an advanced level dementia resident that has high anxiety and becomes very anxious with environmental stimulation (noise, other residents that act out, loud TV’s, etc.) . He is able to express to staff when his anxiety level rises. When he does, we removed him from the chaos (stressor) and a caregiver will sit with him in a quiet place to redirect and help him to lower his anxiety.

I feel that your play away would be very effective for him. What pre-loaded program would you recommend for an advanced level dementia resident with high anxiety?

Dear Belleruth,

I played your guided imagery for healing trauma for my friend and she strongly rejected it saying there is no peaceful place she can relate to and there is no lovely being she can identify to take her on the journey. Did I play the wrong tape? Shall I insist? I am very worried.

Dear BR,

Do you have something for the fear of dying?

Hi, Belleruth.

I believe my insomnia comes from deep-rooted fears. I’m fearful but not what you’d call phobic. I do not fear leaving the house. And I do not have panic attacks. But I am a generally worried person, who sees the world as a dangerous place and whose fears keep me up at night.I believe I would have to have some guided imagery that addresses fears or lack of. Which do you suggest?

I have a couple of questions for you.  First, I am looking for guided imagery on two different is stress/anxiety relief and the other is reduction of dependency on alcohol. I was wondering, can you listen to guided imagery on more than one topic at a time? Also, are there audios that are shorter than 60 minutes? I truly don't have much time in a day and would like to spend no more than 15 minutes listening if possible. Is it a requirement that you spend a lot of time listening to the audios for it to be effective?

I am interested in your audios for posttraumatic stress and depression for my practice. Is the $11 for an MP3 copy in US dollars, and does it include all the tracks? I am in Australia. Thanks.

 Dear Belleruth,

I have a few questions. Can I use guided imagery to heal my pet? Do I play the audio so that they can hear it, or should I play it for me but think of my dog?

Actually, they’re still where they’ve always been, but the tab disappeared when we changed web platforms… Sorry!  Our error. They’re coming back, and here’s the link in the meantime….
