WARNING: If you plan on submitting your own mental imagery interview for assessment, DO NOT read the proceeding first, instead fill out your own interview first, then read these, so your current mental image is not skewed, resulting in a possible inaccurate emotional state being returned to you. This is an imaginery journey down a road. Take in the sights, sounds and colours, just like a video camera recording all that lies surrounding you. Survey the scene, noticing whatis far off in the distance, the background surrounds, the weather, the season and a total image of what you view. Feel the ground beneath your feet. Try to visualize it as a picture on a canvas, but with movement, sound, colour and emotion. You are the surveyor on this journey. Draw your journey on paper if you desire, as it often shows clearer results, then attach your drawing via snapshot or scan to your post. Q1. What colour is the road? Red, slightly orangey... almost terracotta Q2. What texture is the road? Rough but flat. Like tarmac. Q3. How solid is the road? Feels safe and solid. You continue walking and come to a river that must be crossed. There before you is the river; the size and depth are up to you. You cannot go around it but must imagine a way to cross it. Whatever you need to cross the river is already within your mind, just imagine seeing yourself do it. Q4. How do you cross the river? There is a bridge. It is made from old rocks and looks well established. Q5. What does the water look like? Really clear. I can see pebbles at the bottom Q6. How fast is the water current? Babbling, quite fast,l but the water is too shallow for it too wash me away. Q7. Is there anything in the water? If so, what? Beautiful brightly coloured pebbles. You have crossed the river and continue walking. You come to a house. Take a good look at the house. Notice the impression it makes on you. Q8. What colour is the house? Dark brown, almost black Q9. What condition is the house in? It looks like it's in disrepair, it's falling to bits. It looks very old and the garden looks over grown and unkempt and the windows are dirty with rotting frames. Q10. Does anyone live in the house? If so, who? Noone lives there We continue forward in our minds journey and come to an open field. A cup is on the ground, and we stop to examine it. The cup can be of any size, shape, colour and description. Focus on it's look, condition and contents. Q11. What colour is the cup? It's white. Q12. What condition is the cup in? It looks new. Clean, pristine. Q13. Is there anything in the cup? If so, what? Water. Fresh and clear. You continue walking down the road and come to something blocking your path. It stops you in your tracks and prevents you from going forward. This is an obstacle. Q14. What is the obstacle, and please describe it in detail? It is the man who raped me. As I move either way he moves to block me. He will only let me go backwards, not a step forwards. He isn't touching me. He is standing with his hands on his hips with an evil smile on his face. Q15. What do you see beyond the obstacle? There is a path that goes over the top of a hill. I cannot see what is on the other side of the hill, but I know I want to get there. There is a beautiful sunset on the horizon.
