Integral eye movement therapy is a brief process for permanently changing undesired, unhelpful feelings about the past and the self. Techniques address how the client learned to feel the way they do, as well as how they learned to be the way they are, thus bringing about rapid change. If a person can’t change because they don’t know how to, this can reflect a training need rather than a therapy need.  IEMT incorporates training the client in techniques to help them affect change. IEMT is a useful tool for a therapist to include in work with clients, enabling excellent results where otherwise a good outcome may have seemed unlikely.  IEMT compliments other therapies well such as counselling, hypnotherapy, NLP and Reiki, so as well as a standalone therapy I will include it where it is appropriate into my other work.

IEMT is particularly effective for anxiety, depression, PTSD, guilt, or any other emotional or identity issue.  Eye movement therapies are believed to be particularly effective for reducing the emotional impact of intrusive imagery and flashbacks, so that the imagery becomes far less disturbing.  IEMT therapy differs from other eye movement therapies in that the therapist precisely calibrates which axis to move the client’s eyes through, rather than a random or basic left-right movement, enabling exploration to be precise and change to occur rapidly.
