Visualisation - any experience?

Hi all, I hope this is the right place to post this question.
I am in my mid-40s and in a career bind. I have what is considered by the world to be a good job, in a good company, but I am unhappy. I don't enjoy the content of my job very much, and feel my efficiency and goodness has been abused and everyone takes me for granted. I am also tired. I am scared to take a break. One of my greatest flaws is worry and disaster scenarios. Also loss of confidence. I am angry and have angry conversations in my head all the time with my boss.
Recently I asked for a change at work. Then I found out my old boss was coming back as my new boss and I am now less than thrilled about it, but I'm not really keen on the old job either (which I am still doing till the changes kick in). I feel like I made a dysfunctional decision. I have been to counselling for a few months (which got stalled as the counsellor wasn't available) and I don't know if it's because of that but I am calmer (but not happier) than before. Relatively.
I have been thinking about visualisation but I know that wanting something is not enough to achieve it. I have to do something too to make it work. But I am afraid that my unhappiness/discontent is something I can never get rid of. I know what I don't want to do. There are only a couple of things I want to do. Does visualising a state of happiness work enough? What do I do to supplement the visualisation? I don't even know how to begin looking for another job - I don't want my name on job Web sites because I hear the best jobs are got through personal contacts and I have been telling the odd person about it but inside I don't feel ready to shift yet.
Please help me.
