Job Loss Recovery Program
The Job Loss Recovery Program uses a unique series of guided visualization techniques to help unemployed, dislocated workers land jobs quickly. In a published, peer-reviewed study, five times more people landed jobs within two months of listening to six guided visualizations compared to a placebo control group. Because of these remarkable results, this program is endorsed by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
Guided visualization is a thought process that consciously directs and focuses the mind and imagination to create an internal experience similar to a directed daydream that involves all of your senses: sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste. Using guided visualization can help you achieve mental, physical and emotional goals for success and well-being.
You’ve probably heard of the “mind-body connection,” which refers to how thoughts and feelings can impact the body and vice versa. What you think affects how you feel, and how you feel affects what you think. In a wide range of studies, medical experts have found that guided visualization can significantly impact physical health.
The mind-body connection has also become popular in the field of competitive sports, which have become as much a mental game as a physical one. For decades, Olympic athletes have been practicing visualization techniques to increase confidence and peak performance. Here are two key examples:
Swimmer Michael Phelps, who won multiple gold medals in 2004, 2008, and 2012, used mental rehearsal while in training and immediately before his Olympic races. From the time he was 13 years old, he has used visualization techniques to set and achieve goals.
Skier Lindsey Vonn, Olympic gold and bronze medal winner in 2009, named “America’s Best Woman Skier Ever” by Sports Illustrated, has said that by the time she gets to the start gate, she’s already run that race 100 times in her head, picturing how she’ll take the turns.
Many people who have lost their jobs often have unresolved negative, feelings (even anger) about their experience. This negative emotional baggage erodes self-confidence, comes across during interviews like an “invisible chip on your shoulder,” and can contribute to poor interview performance and failure to land a job.
In the Job Loss Recovery Program, you’ll listen to two 25-minute guided visualization recordings — Track 1 and Track 2 (each of which you’ll listen to three times on three separate days) — that will help you:
- Reach closure about unresolved emotional job loss issues
- Reduce stress and resolve job loss distress
- Avoid taking unwanted emotions into a job search
- Build self-confidence
- Tap into your inner wisdom
- Improve interview performance, and
- Land the job of your choice!
In Track 1: you’ll relax while mentally and emotionally, to resolve the heavy feelings associated with your job loss. If you’ve been holding onto anything you’d like to say to a former employer, here is where you’ll find a resolution. You will learn a method to express yourself, which will help bring closure to any of your unresolved feelings. This critical first step of emotional resolution begins the process of leaving your past job behind and moving onto a new one.
You will also be mentally introduced to your most successful “Future Self.” This process can help you build hope and self-esteem, as well as prompt some great ideas. This simple experience will also increase your motivation and improve your job search performance.
In Track 2: you’ll mentally rehearse peak performance job interviews as well as create and interact with your “Inner Mentor,” from whom you’ll feel unconditional support. These experiences can help you develop your career dreams and access the wisdom deep inside of you.
Overall, these experiences are relaxing and positive. If you are new to guided visualization, you’ll improve with practice.
This program will soon be available as a Home Study System. Please contact me and I’ll provide you with details and pricing.
