Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT)

A Rapid Change Therapy

IEMT is a brief change therapy, using eye movements and questioning techniques to explore the areas of unwanted emotions and our way of being.

Throughout our lives, past experiences and events affect the way we behave and our emotional responses to different situations. These are known as emotional imprints and identity imprints.

Unlike many other therapies IEMT requires a brief outline, and does not require you to go into any details in relation to your experiences or difficult events in your life. The lack of detail does not affect the effectiveness of the therapy. At times, clients may find this way of working beneficial because they do not have to share distressing experiences and events. 

IEMT can help with ….

I will use a variety of techniques to change the emotional imprint and identity imprint.

An example of an emotional imprint might be “I feel lonely”, an identity imprint might be “I am a lonely person.”  Having an identity label like this can cause a person to believe they are a lonely person which reinforces this belief time and time again.
