The Music and Imagery Association of Australia Inc (MIAA) is the premier association advancing music psychotherapy in Australia. We use music and imagery as catalysts for health and wellness, within a psychodynamic, multimodal therapy.
Our purpose is to foster the growth and development of the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) and related practices involving Music and Imagery; to promote and organise training programmes in the Bonny Method of GIM; and to promote and organise continuing education in aspects related to Music and Imagery.
What is Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) Therapy?
Guided Imagery and Music is a form of therapy in which music and imagery experiences activate inner reflection, memories and feelings, to promote mental and spiritual wellbeing and health.
